    I live in the USA in Henniker New Hampshire. I've been doing the family reserach for years and hit a wall until today while using a weekend free search on Findmypast.org. I did not have the hit on several search engines that I use.
    My Gr Gr Gr Grandfather was George W Armstrong and his first wife was Lucy Susan Barber. I just found their marriage in 1827 in Ilminster England.
    First name(s) LUCY
    Last name BARBER
    Marriage year 1827
    Marriage date 30 AUG 1827
    Place ILMINSTER
    Groom's first name(s) George
    Groom's last name ARMSTRONG
    Groom's marital status -
    Groom's parish -
    Bride's first name(s) Lucy
    Bride's last name BARBER
    Bride's marital status -
    Bride's parish -
    County Somerset
    Country England
    Record set Somerset Marriages (post-1754)

    Now they had two daughters Charlotte J Armstrong born in 1831 and Elizabeth Armstrong born in 1832. I still have no hits for them but I also notice no birth records for Ilminster showing up so I suspect they were born in that area. Any ideas of how I could search thos parish records.

    Hi Don, welcome in. Good to see you.
    As this particular Forum is only for howdo's, a mod will probably come along shrtly & move part of your post to another site where we can all have a go at helping you. The Somerset Forum is a likely spot.
    Meantime we can have a look & see what we come up with. Enjoy the Forum. C|:-)

    Greetings Don and welcome to the forum. As Wendy has pointed out this section of the forum is not for research queries. I have copied your original post to the Somerset section where queries can be made and it can be found here.

    Can I also ask you to add your location to your profile please. It can sometimes be useful to members trying to assist you if they know roughly where you are located.

    Welcome to the forum, Don. :)

    As Doug mentioned, please pop your location into your profile and then it will show on each post that you make. If you are not sure how to do this, just yell and one of us will explain. :)
