Hi Alison,

I've had a look at your tree and there's still so much you can do with it before moving onto other branches, otherwise it just becomes a collection of names and vague dates.

I can see you don't have full membership so don't have access to most of Ancestry's records but there are lots of other places you can search for free, and you can alway put up a request if you need help.

You should firm up some of the birth years you have by checking out http://www.freebmd.org.uk/cgi/search.pl
You should add marriage details, this helps explain where you've obtained maiden names from. Have you tried looking for baptisms or deaths?

You'll see that although you have Rebecca CANNELL's year of birth as 1867 she was actually registered in Dec 1864 in Depwade v.4b p.237 (this is the registration are that covers Forncett)

Using that date you can pick her up with her parents and seven siblings on the 1871 census. If you'd like the full details just ask and I'll happily post it for you.

Another useful free site is https://www.familysearch.org/
This has extracts from parish registers (marriages, baptisms, deaths) and census details.

As a lot of your ancesters were from Norfolk you should find this site useful http://www.doun.org/transcriptions/index.php

Hope this helps
Linda
