Although it is best to use specific forums for various topics, this one is for general topics that don't otherwise have a home.

  5. if the ancestor is illegitimate/base born

    ...where do you start looking for him/her? Possibly two generations. And it's Middlesex/Essex in the late 1700s and early 1800s - possibly Shoreditch. Two surnames but no link between until children marry. Thanks.
