    Do you think that it's worth purchasing Frank Connor jnrs birth certificate mentioned above? Would it confirm things a little more? Or should I save my pennies?

    Thanks Nick
    I suppose the bc could confirm or otherwise that the father is also Frank with occupation miner. It would also confirm the mother's maiden name and then you would be sure that the family you are following are the same ones. Really you are dependent on a living relative now to confirm the connection to your family from knowledge they have or maybe using photos to see if anyone looks familiar!

    Thanks Margaret, I've taken the plunge and ordered.
    Unfortunately its only my dad left now so I only have him to ask I'm afraid. After his mother Mary and auntie kit died it was just dad on his own, we are not aware of or have any contact with anyone from his side of the family. Which is why I started this search as I know nothing about the Connors at all.... Other than my dad! )

    Well I was meaning the people in the tree on ancestry who seem to have claimed your Frank Connor - they might have knowledge of you father etc.

    Was looking at the siblings trying to see if Frank could be mentioned elsewhere as the family members are marriage witnesses/Godparents

    Did find records for James William in Canada, added these only as they verify the dates above
