    Hi,

    The following link might help.

    Go to the Isle of Man Family History Society at:
    http://www.iomfhs.im

    and CLICK ON RESEARCH (this is very important!).

    This will lead you to the excellent FREE (partial) indexes compiled by Brian Lawson.

    Good luck,

    JAP

    Thanks Micheal This gives us 2 choices i guess the wife seems to think that the census result is the lass she is looking for, any chance of a marraige for the 2 of them its proving very difficult with there being so many leeces and moores upon the isle of man!!!!!
    thanks again,

    If you want to establish the parents of Esther, then you need to look at the marriage register - you may gain further information from that. The nearest LDS Family History Centre can obtain the microfilm of these records for a small charge.
