I have spent some time researching on-line collecting birth and marriage certs to track back my family line.
My Grandfather was George(1) and he married (May Ethel WERN) his father was George(2) who in 1914 married Alice Bore (daughter of Alice LIGHT and Richard BORE). From their marriage certificate I see George's father was Moses and was dead at the time of the wedding.
I have searched and searched for a Birth Cert for George(2) but without luck, there are to many Moses Purkiss in the Portsmouth (and of course New Forest area!!!) to try to leap a generation to hit lucky and trace forward back to George(2)
From family here say I think George(2) had an older Brother Moses, I have found a Moses who died in the Great War in 1917 but can't link him in.
Unfortunatly my Grandfather died in the 80's and I have no living relative that can fill the gaps, George(1) had I'm told 9 brothers or Sisters but I have no info on them other than some of the names they were known by
If anyone knows of George son of Moses or in fact Moses. Please contact me.
Finally I have found a Moses son of Moses son of Aaron but I can't link this line in. The dates for these 3 sort of match to make the last Moses my GG Granddad but I have no information on his children.
