Hi again andrew, To research your ancestor Raynert Ratcliffe, you'd want to first amass all the information you can about him. Then share every possible detail with the forum. A date of birth or even just an approximate year of birth would be a good start. List records and/or other information noting the source of the various facts. Bear in mind many people have a similar name and so just stick to developing all you can about YOUR Raynert as a starting point for further research.
