Genealogy help... next step?
I managed to get a copy of my fathers father's birth certificate. Yes My grandad I mean! He died very young and no one knew anything about him. Hell of a job even getting this far with no exact DOB etc. Anyway, certificate is now in my hands!
I would like to see what info I can find about his father. This would be my fathers grand father.
From this birth certificate the info I now have is this.
Grand Father - Gilbert Smith; 26th August 1903.
Name of Father - Joseph Smith; Railway Packer 14 Midland Terrace, Bristol
Name of Mother - Elsie May Louise Smith, Nee Williams
That's it. What can I do now to find any more info about any of their lives?
Many thanks to all who try to help!
I tried to find a marriage record for Joseph Smith & Elsie May William, there seems to be a record of this for June 1902. But I can't then get any details or access of anything.
I can't find anything in any census and don't understand where to look or what for?!
I "think" Elsie May William was born in 1884. But again I can't seem to find anything of any use...
Am I looking in the wrong places? Can anyone provide any specific info, with specific marriage date or DOB?
What info can you get on a census? How do you find them?
Its only for interest purposes, for my dad, who wanted to know about HIS grand parents... where he worked, what he did, etc.
I can't afford £80 to join ancestry site just for a few bits of info!
