View Full Version : Allen look up please

11-10-2007, 11:40 AM
I am strating to trace my family tree on my father's side but have very little information. :confused:

In particular I'd like to track down birth, death and marriage certificates for Gilbert Allen who died in about 1976 in Nottingham and his wife Alma who died about 1978/9.

I've had a quick look on FreeBMD but found no matching info.

Grateful for any info!

That's because FreeBMD has virtually nothing after about 1920.

You need the marriage certificate but there is a birth of

Alma A Roome, mothers maiden name Jennings or Jenkings - cannot be sure, Q1 1913, Nottingham, 7b 816

You need to double check all these out for yourself in the Full Index.
