help dead end in familly tree

Journal by sarahsean

Hi everyone,
My sister and I are searching for information on my great grandmother`s family. Her name was Elizabeth Rose Nethaway and she was born in 1875-1878. We know that her father was called Henry Nethaway from her marriage certificate. She married my great grandfather in 1903 in Romsey, Surrey, England. However we can find no record of her in that area before 1903, can find no record of her birth and no trace of her in the 1901 uk census. We plan on going round the cemeteries in Romsey this summer as my sister remembers visiting her grave there with my father who is since deceased as are any other family members who could have been of help. It may be a long search as we don`t know exactly where the grave is! We have looked at all the family tree sites we can think of on the internet.
Has anyone else had this problem and been as stumped as we are and what did they do to solve the problem.

Thanks for any help

Hi Ajax,

English records go back as far as 1837 then you need to look at the parish records.

Irish records are trickier it helps if you know where in Ireland they came from. If you have family from Dublin the 1911 census is on online and is really good, they will be adding more counties but are very slow at doing so. (national

Also try this website it shows what county records are online ( you can look for your ancestor free of charge to do a simple search.

Let me know where your family come from and i`ll try see what i can find. Try rootschat also it is very good and has a great section on Ireland.
