    Looking for a missing child I have been scouring the workhouse admission registers on Anc.

    What is your interpretation of this surname?

    Anc, has one name but I think it is something else - anyone care to make a suggestion?

    Thank you - I too read it as Goodbody.:)
    Anc. has it as Goodway (which is the name I am looking for), and I doubted
    myself o_O when I read it as Goodbody.

    How frustrating. But yes, it's Goodbody.
