English Ancestors

Journal by allengirl

My father, William Albert Allen was born in England on November 17, 1925. His parents were Raymond Allen (b 1895/1896) and Ellen Kathleen Dickins (b 1891). Raymond's parents were George Allen and Anne Emma Butcher. Ellen's parents were Lewis Dickins (b 1865) and Sarah Ames. All of England. That's were I'm stuck. Any information would be GREATLY appreciated. My father was brought to Canada from England along with brothers George and Frank when he was four in 1929. Has no recollection of family. I'm trying to put some pieces together for him He's now 83 and in poor health. Would love to make a connection for him soon. Thanks!

Dear 'allengirl'. Hi. This is what you do. Register as a new user of [url\=http://www.rootschat.com]RootsChat[/url], free genie site, then goto their England boards.

Create a new topic looking for your ancestors. Rootschatters should be able to find their marriages, and the families should be on the Census working backwards from 1901, 1891, 1881 etc. every 10 years to 1841 and in some instances possibly earlier. Beyond that, parish records are a Godsend.

Think about having your family tree online somewhere, say perhaps TribalPages (free site) and even GenesReunited $ small annual fee. GenesReunited is a site that works quickly for you, you may find hot matches with your tree and anothers in a fortnight's time if you have entered all your data quickly.

Both sites have the ability to hide details of the living.

Have a little look at this site RootsWeb World Connect Project. Link is for a global search. Type in a surname, perhaps a spouse's name, make sure the information is kept short so you can browse through the search results, and click on search.

Editor.
