How do I find a Mother for my grandfather
My grandfather, Frederick Newsome was born about 1863. I know his fathers name was James as it says so on Fredericks marriage cert. I can not find his Mother. I have looked for a birth certificate or baptisms with James as the Father, but can not find anything.
Where was your Grandfather born? USA, England, Germany what country?0
He was born in Uk. I think either Yorkshire or Birmingham, but not certain0
Hi Cathy, Frederick married Eleanor Whitfield in 1902. Frederick was a warehouseman and James, his father is deceased on the Marriage cert. his occupation is down as a foreman.
I have looked at so many Frederick Newsome and James Newsome, I am going round in circles.
I have found a Martha Newsome on Church of England birth and baptism with a son named Frederick in 1864 in Dewsbury, but I can not verify it.
Any help would be really appreciated0
Who did Frederick marry? Does it state on Marriage Cert what Frederick's father did for occuption?0
Welcome to the "Community.FamilySearch" Forum.
I am just another 'lowly' User/Patron ...
I just took a quick 'look' in:
FreeDMD ... ( 1860 - 1870 )
GRO, England and Wales ... ( 1863 ±2 Years )
A couple of options.
The Cost of a "Digital" PDF Copy for a "Birth" record from the GRO is about £7.
I just thought that these may help, if you were not already aware of them.
Thank you so much Brett. I have searched on free bmd before, but nothing came up! Maybe I was doing something wrong. I never tried GRO online!
Thank you for the welcome too0
I am just glad that I could provide some help/assistance ...

By the way ...
That 'On-Line' Search facility, of the 'Civil Registration' for both, "Birth"; and, "Death", of the 'General Registry Office' ( GRO ) of 'England and Wales', is FREE to, "Register"; and, "Search", the "Indexes".
From when the 'Civil Registration' for both, "Birth", commenced in the Third Quarter in 1837, until about 1921, the Mother's "Maiden" Name, is recorded, for a Child's Birth. And, if there is ONLY a "▬" (ie. "Dash"), the Mother's "Maiden" Name, such indicates that the Child's Birth, was "Illegitimate" (ie. 'Born Out of Wedlock').
Thank you Brett0
