This information is not known by my family - hence why I am trying to search records or figure out where I can find this information. The information that I put in my first post is the extent of the information that my current living family knows.
They have ways of figuring this out and you best chances to get some information are, when your ggrandmother is still alive.
If you wanna do this by yourself, check Ggrandmothers birthcertificate, wehre was she born, go to the hospital and ask, they will most probably not be willing to share information, though its a worth a try.
Some things get very clear witht he social-security number. If your ggrandmother got hers at birth, there will be the signature of either her birth-mother, which in that case is most probably not possible, or a doctor or attourney of state signing in "their name".
This is how I would do it today.
Your ggrandmother being born in 1913 makes that a little harder.
I am new to this and i am looking for the gosselin coat of arms I want to have it tattooed to my forearm and I know there are many ones out there for diffrent gosselin clans i just want to make shure i get the right one
I am having trouble finding information on my great grandfathers If someone could assist I would be most appreciative.
Name: Austin H Smith
Married to: Charlotte I. Brandt Children: Violet Louise Smith, Ralph Smith, Olive Smith, Iver Smith, Martha Smith. Tentative guess on parents is James Smith and Ester (no last name). My Grandmother Violet grew up in Massachusetts so that's where I'd assume they were from. My grandmother was born in Aug 5 1907 so I would assume they were between 20 and 40 years old putting their birth between 1867 and 1887.
Name: George Harold Martin Jr.
Don't know who he's married to. His father is most likely George Harold Martin. His Children included Bryon Nichols Martin and Paul Clark Martin. Byron was born in Sep 16 1909 so I would assume they were between 20 and 40 years old putting their birth between 1869 and 1889. I would also think the lived in Massachusetts or some neighboring state.
I would like to find out birth and death dates and places. Marriage dates would be nice too. Plus any line back on their siblings or parents would be helpful.
HELLO I am looking for information on Alfred Eward Hipkin & wife Glara Jane they were in Walsigham Norfork UK in 1919 he had a older brother Thomas William My mother was Victoria Gladys (Betty) Hipkin.They all moved to Boston Lincolnshire UK, to work for Boston Deep Sea Trawlers That is Alfred & Thomas did. THANK YOU.
My grandfather was James Richard Hipkin. He had 2 older brothers, Thomas and Alfred. Their parents were William Hipkin and Elizabeth (nee Pawley). They were all born at Hempton/Fakenham which is in the Walsingham registration district. Uncle Alfred, born in 1886, was married to Sarah Jane (Nee Softley) and they had 2 sons, Clarence and Victor. I believe that Alfred, who I met a few times when I was young, died in Boston. I do not know what became of Thomas but my granddad did say that he died at sea whilst he was still a young man.
THANK YOU FOR THAT INORMATION I WOULD BE GRATEFUL IF YOU HAVE MORE INFO ON THE HIPKIN SIDE I GOT BACK TO WILLIAM HIPKIN 1865. ALFRED HAD 2 MORE SON LEN & TOM & 2 DAUGHTER BETTY & DEE, ALFRED & TOM GOT THE DSO IN WORLD WAR 2, BUT HIS SPOUSE WAS CLARA JANE SOFTLEY, BETTY WAS MY MOTHER THANK YOU
So sorry, I meant Clara! (Typo. error or just getting old).
I do have quite a lot of information about the Hipkin family. My grandfather (James Richard), younger brother of Alfred, married Gertrude Curtis from Salhouse in 1919 and they had 3 children, William, Kate (my mother) and Roy. None of them are surviving but all 3 had children who are still living. Great Grandfather William ( 1862-1937) was married to Elizabeth Pawley. His father was Richard Hipkin (1826-1892), married to Mary Ann Bassham (1833-1917). Richard 's father was Thomas (1789-1852) and he was married to Amey Bee (1801-1849)
My grandad was in WW1 and served with the Norfolk Regiment in Mesopotamia. In WW2 he worked for the Ministry of transport and spent a lot of time constructing dummy airfields along the N Norfolk coast.
I would love to know more about my grandad's brothers. I did meet Alfred a few times and I seem to recall that some of his sons were fishermen. If this is so then I met them too.!! I do have some certificates which you might like copies of. It would be easier to attach these to an e-mail.
My e-mail address is b.scade@btinternet .com.
If you are happy for me to have your e-mail address then I would be very happy to let you have copies of certificates and photographs of my grandparents (if you would like them)!!
