Hi, I am currently looking for information on my grandad Frank Ashley Dronfield
I am able to find the three other siblings, Lily, Fred and Bernard, as well as his father Fred or Alfred,
I am unable to find any records on my grandad,
His father comes from a family with 8 children, I thought maybe I wasnt the only person looking into this Sheffield family? Minto Road, Sheffield
Frank Ashley Dronfield, born 1912 mothers maiden name Hague, I have sent you an email with further information.
Nellie is on the 1939 register living 40 Minto Road with a son Leonard and an Elizabeth Hague who I think is her mother.
Just to give you a nudge in how to research if you are just starting your tree.
If you use the GRO index it now shows the mothers maiden name.
It is important to have a few certificates when you first start which prove you are on the right track.
Once you get back to 1911 you can follow the family back to 1841 on the different census.
Our Parish records & Burials which are over to the left may help also.
Access as I said to FreeBMD/GRO,Ancestry/FindMyPast will help.
Family Search, FreeREG are a few other sites you might need to look into.
When all else fails we are here to lead you to where you need to go or actually turn material up that will help you.
Have fun and take your time...... nothing worse than rushing and taking the wrong line.
