The Name of the Father is Missing!
Collecting vital records like birth certificates is something one does to find out more information if you are addicted to the hobby: family history.
H for Hobby: Family History.
I got a letter in pale brown envelope with a Royal Mail stamp. I knew it was from the General Register Office in the U.K. Or GRO, as us family historians like to call it. I had been waiting for the letter to come. What new information would I find out? Would I solve a mystery? Excited, I open it only to discover no father named. So that is still a mystery. In family history research this blank space for the fathers name is considered to be valuable as this confirms that we do not know a the particular details.
It now make sense why Alexandra Ruby Violet is named DAWSON, her mothers maiden name, in the 1911 UK census.
