Yes I believe it is the English census that I need. Some of the info that I have is from an distant cousin, altho we have yet to confirm that, and was done in the early 1980s for my sister in law and we have lost contact. So with this paper binder full of typed text I`m trying to fill in a few distant gaps. I do have gt gt grandmothers info and their children (and more in the US) but she was born in New York as was my gt grandfather so I did not include that info. Would it be useful in this case? I`m so new at this I don't know what you mean by 'IGI' Anyway, any help in acquiring the census would be enormously helpful. Thank You for your quick response.
Have you a date/year in which William arrived in the US, as I cant see him on the US census at the moment, though his pob of birth will be given as England.
There are some William Standage on the English census, but not knowing when he left England ,the ones I'm looking at may not be him and also he is not showing on the passenger lists (well not on the site I'm using.)
Thank you so much for your interest in this Julie.
Yes I`ve search the Latter Day Saints Family Search and he is there along with wife Polly which I already have.
The first date I have is in Plattsburge(Clinton)New York 1841 but their first born son Peter was born Nov. 08, 1840 so he must have come prior to 1841. I have no info as to what parish to contact in Sheffield England (YORKSHIRE?? anther assumption on my part) to even begin to purchase a search.
Since the last known address in England was Fenns ( Lincolnshire) England no date and from what I can determine Finns(Fins?) was a county, I have no idea who to contact for census. Talk about sitting between a rock and a hard place... I`ve come so far with this I stubbornly refusing to stop now. Anyway, Thank You again for your interest and responding to my post Julie. Your kindness is appreciated.
Have you a LDS (Latter Day Saints) centre near you. Maybe worthwhile
to enquire if they have any micro fiches for the place and dates you have, which would be ordered and viewed at the local LDS for a fee.
