you can go on the 1901 & 1911 census, and type in the Sims name and then the first names of your relatives and even the birth "year" and you'll find some of them and their children listed. In the 1901 Joseph Sims's wife, Mary is listed but in the 1911 she is listed under "Alice". Check it out, it is a start. Geraldine
