Help please. My GG Grandmother Frances H Fletcher was born in Barbados in 1852, her mothers name was Sarah and was born in Ireland I have no maiden name for Sarah. I am assuming that Frances' father was in the services? I cannot find who her father was as there were no records of him coming back to England with his wife and children, and cannot find a marriage certificate for Frances' father and mother. I have no idea what part of Barbados they were at or anything else can someone please help me

Most people start searching with the IGI (it's the largest database in the world, and it's free).

There are MANY features - you almost need to do a course to learn all of them - but once you get started it's very fruitful to keep looking with different angles and directions.

When you click on one of the links below, go to the right hand side of one of the record displayed and click on the tiny arrowhead. The record will drop down instead of opening another window and making you page backwards and forwards.

You can also use the specs on the left side to narrow all the various categories, some of them even "step down" several times (Europe > Ireland > Galway > Galway City, etc.).

So here's a start, with the various basic searches I put in... good luck!
