Subject: [DEV] Help with Milton Birthplace
> Greetings from Canada -
> Would somebody be kind enough to advise where I can obtain birth details
> to enable me to send for a Birth Certificate for:
> PERKINS Elizabeth - 139 Navy Row, Stoke Damerel, HO/107/1882, Folio 517,
> Page 83
> I found her on the 1851 Census, age 12, Birthplace: Milton
> She is shown as the daughter of George Perkins (60) and Grace Perkins
> (61), but it seems more than likely that she is their granddaughter.
> I understand that the Devon FHS is closed for now and this is the Office
> I have found very helpful on previous occasions. I have not been able
> to find Elizabeth on either the BMD or IGI.
> Would somebody be kind enough to advise where additional information can
> be located, as I don't believe that the census data is sufficient for
> birth certificate application.
> Any help or suggestions would be most appreciated.
> Thanks very much.
