How do I acertain the right person in particular record ?
I wasn't sure how to ask this question?
And I accept if there is not answer.
However I find it very odd that many British records that I look at have so little information. It seems almost useless as to why the records were kept.
Case in point.
Here you have a listing of births in 1884. As you look at any name it gives, the name of the person, who was born, then District, Vol. and Page.
But it doenst give me the parents name or address or anything that would help me identify if this is the Herbert Wilfred Hall that Im looking for.
How can I take this info and find out if it is who Im looking for?
