Last year we discovered that her Grandad was 1 of 12 - he had 6 step-siblings and 5 siblings, and her granny was one of about 6/7. We discovered this on the 1891 and 1901 censuses, using birth certificates, and got an address for them at the time. We know one of Gt gt grandads brothers died in WW1 - and that's it. I ahve left several psots on fmaily tree websites to no avail. We know they must have some living relatives. Any suggestiosn as to where we can look next? We have all the names and years of birth
I'm not even sure what I'm looking for TBH. Its just that mum had no idea that she had all these Gt aunts and uncles, she only knew of 1. I think we'd just like to know what happened to them. The street they lived in was called Goldsmiths Road(or Street) in Camberwell(Peckham?), not sure of my London districts. My Gt GT Grandads family lived in 1 house, then 2 doors down was my Gt Gt grannys family and in another house ont eh street was Gt Gt grannys oldest sister and her husband and children
We have managed to go back a bit past 1861, just want to go forward a bit I suppose
If you want me to take a look, email me (bubblerockjl2 at aol.com) what you have so far. You never know a fresh pair of eyes might help. I've ended up leaving my tree for months after getting stuck then going back to it and finding things straight away!
