  18. 18. Daphne’s dilemma• I have been looking at Elizabeth Vincent• Details are as follows• Born in Netherhampton in 1836• Found in 1841 and 1851 census (all OK so far)• I checked on another tree because I couldnt find her in 1861.• There was another tree in ancestory which she was on, this tree stated that she married Henry Hibberd in 1860.• On this tree she subsequently had three children Henry 1861 Sarah 1863 and Ernest 1865.•• I checked and could find no evidence or any Marriage for her•
  19. 19. Daphne’s dilemma• I later found her in 1861 living with her brother George.• This makes me think there must have been two Elizabeth Vincents.• My question is, if there is no record of any marriage on record could there be records somwhere else?• Can I check to find if there were two Elizabeths.• This makes me also realise that it is no good just taking someone elses tree to be correct everything needs to be double checked.• Incidentally, I found Ernest Vincent living with his uncle in 1891.
  20. 20. Keith’s dilemma• I have a cousin living in Australia who has recently been contacted by somebody over their who believes that they are related. Knowing of my interest in the subject my cousin mentioned it to me last week. All we know is that the family in Australia are Norton-Bakers and that the relationship is most likely on the Akers/Sadler side of my family (so might also be of interest to Tony!).• My Dads youngs brothers middle name was Brisbane and the family lore was that he got that in honour of friends living there, but I now wonder if it was actually family.• I have never explored the possibility of overseas relatives and Im not sure where to start

  22. 22. Lost Cousins question......• Your challenge is to find the happy couple on the 1881 Census, which was taken less than a year later, and convince me that youve found the right census entry.• How would you find the answer?
