Hi Wales,
George Ernest Bird is my g. grandfather and I have hit the wall when looking for info on my Grandmother. She was born in 1897 to a career army man who I believe came from Wales, her mother we are told was a Scot. He died in the late 1890's and the 5 children were placed in either an orphanage or an army school just outside of Cardiff. My Gran did speak Welsh which seems to confirm that she was there for some time. There were 4 girls, Catherine Mary, Florence, Dorothy and Nancy. The only boy Thomas was still living in the area in the mid 1940's and he had children. Does anyone have any idea where I can start to look as they are nowhere to be found, no birth or 1901 census for any of them. The marriage cert: gives only her father's name and occupation and nothing else.
Have been at this point for years so any help would be very appreciated. From a grateful Canuk
