I have an ancestor Samuel Cowell who is recorded as marrying a Sarah Goodey in 1798. I am wondering how the index or whatever in his case KZZN-LZK is allocated.
His first wife, and I assume this is she, died and he remarried.
Marriage records show a Samuel Cowell ( widower) GD23-38B, remarrying in 1804. in the same church as all their children were christened.
However these children are all recorded to Samuel and Sarah Goodey.
The only records that exist are marriage records and christening records.
How can one prove whose children these are if parents are only recorded as Samuel and Sarah Cowell.
I believe these are the same Samuel.
What to do ?
