Thread: How do you trace ...

    How do you trace ...

    ... parent's of someone born after a census? What am I missing in not being able to find out?
    I suppose I could order their marriage from the GRO but is there an easier way on Ancestry?
    Thanks

    If you look for the birth of the person on the BMD records you should find the mothers maiden name. Hopefully then you can find the parents marriage.
    Try this before ordering the certificate, unless of course its a common surname.
