Tracing an illegitimate ancestor?


New member

Okay. This may seem a stupid question, but is this possible? I am trying to trace my grandfathers father. I know for a fact he was illegitimate as I have his birth cert and it states "father unknown". What i'd really like to know is is it possible to find this information elsewhere? Parish records or baptisms or something? if so how do I access them? Any help appreciated, thanks.
