Obsessed about family history

Journal by Mummyof7

My name is Theresa Rousseu; my maiden name being Ellis. I'm looking for anyone with info on the Ellis family history. This is quickly becoming an obsession for me. My mum's family is very easy to access, but my dad's family history is proving very elusive. As $$$ is super tight right now, I can't use Ancestry.com, as much as I'd love to. I do know that my paternal grandmother's maiden name was Anne Ineson and she married Albert Ellis. Anne's parents were Tobias Ineson and Ellen Bartley. Albert's parents were Selwyn Ellis and Florence Broadwith. I have found plenty of Ellises but none that would appear to be the branch I'm looking for. Any advice or info that someone can provide for me will be greatly and deeply appreciated, if only to satisfy my curiosity. Thank you!!!

welcome Mummyof7,
you didn't mention which country
did Tobias (1892-1970) & Ellen (1892-1969) marry in 1915 in Leeds, Yorkshire and die in Canada??

could you tell us in which country you are looking for Ellis

Beyond the names, I don't know much. I know that my dad was born in Leeds, so it's possible. My grandparents took my dad and uncle and left Leeds in 1951, coming here to Canada. There's been rumors of a disagreement between my grandfather and his brother, possibly the reason they left. I've also heard that my grandfather's sister lives/lived in Winnipeg, but all I know of her is that she was called Winnie.

Hi Mummyof 7, another really good search place is www.familysearch.org and its free. You don't always have to spend many to do research. Also try your local library ( I don't know what area you are in ) but some of our NZ libraries have ancestry for free, just take lots of paper and a few pens and your notes and happy hunting.
