I've decided to share with you 'My Top 5 Most Wanted Birth Certificates' and the reason's why.
1. Isaac DAVIES; 1874 Q3 Holywell,11b 269
Isaac is my great great grand uncle. I want his birth certificate so I can further confirm the maiden name of his mother. My great great grandfather is John DAVIES. John was born in about 1867; there are three possible GRO entries for John DAVIES in 1867 alone. I have already ordered and received one of his other brother’s birth certicates but the mother’s maiden name isn’t very clear. It is most likely to be OLDFIELD but I want to make sure.
2. William WRIGHT; 1874 Q1 Holywell,11b 271
William is my great great grandfather on my maternal side. I believe that his parents were George WRIGHT and Elizabeth SHONE but would like the certificate to prove this link.
3. Grace Mildon WYATT; 1851 Q2 G Boughton,19 65
Grace is my great great great grandmother on my maternal side. I have her birth date from her baptism record; 12 March 1851. The baptism records at St. Deiniol’s, Hawarden give the mother’s maiden name as CHALINOR, however it is spelt a variety of ways so I would like some greater clarification from the certificate.
4. Anne ROBERTS; 1900 Q1 Ruthin,11b 288
Anne is my great grandmother, she was born on 20 January 1900 and I knew her. Unbelievably I do not have her birth certificate. Her parents were William ROBERTS and Jane Elizabeth DAVIES but I would like confirmation of this.
5. William ROBERTS; 1859 Q3 St. Asaph,11b 366
William is my great great grandfather (Anne’s father). I have the birthdate of 25 September 1859 but this was found when I first started my research and I’ve not noted down where it’s come from. I can only assume that it was in the papers my grandmother let me look through.
