OK here goes and the ramblings start! One side of the family has always intrigued me. My dad's cousin's parents were Frank and Elizabeth (Bessie) Gregg and I always thought that Bessie was my dad's mother's sister/half-sister. On re-assembling my long gone tree, Elizabeth didn't appear in either the Field or Place families (Field dad's paternal, Place his maternal). After a bit of digging around I found a birth in the right year/place for Frank Place. In the 1901 census he was living with John & Grace Lambert, his grandparents from his mother's side (Clara died during his birth) In the 1911 census I found him living with Charles & Jane (Janie) Gregg, his aunt/uncle; it transpires that Jane was his mother's sister. What I am trying to find out was he adopted by his aunt & uncle or did he just change his name. Please could someone point me in the right direction as neither Family Search nor Ancestry seem to any info on adoptions. Finally, thank you Chimp for showing where to start this thread.
