I know there are some very knowledgeable folks around, so perhaps one of you
can throw some light on this problem.
My grandfather, William SHAW (yes, I know there are hundreds!), was
allegedly born at Hurst Green, which I think, is or was in Lancashire, in or
about 1864, but the parish was in Yorkshire. It does not seem to be
mentioned in the IGI for either Yorks or Lancs. Can anyone suggest how I
might go about finding my "Fly-Billy SHAW", as he was known later.
Regards, and a very Happy New Year to everyone.
