    Hi. I am working on family history and stuck
    Im happy to join everyone and hope I can help as well as get some help.
    My reason for being here is I am researching family history for my daughters and ran into a few snags.
    I just recently discovered that even though my grand-father (now deceased) represented himself as an only child he was not. He had 2 siblings Orrin born about 1903 & Alma born about 1901. They are in the 1910 census and cannot be found any place else.
    I need to find out what happened to them.
    Grandpa told the whole family all kids included he was an only child. His wife who grew up with him told same tale yet knew better.
    Any ideas ?
    Everything else adds up.
    Thanks for listening.

    Do you have access to the 1920 and 1930 Censuses? The above links are all quite good... and here are some others:

    Are these people you are researching in the US? I've got a subscription to the US databases at; if you'll give the last name, I'll plug them in and see what comes up.

    Hi again.
    Thank You all.
    Yes I tried ancestry and roots web. That is how I found Alma & Orrin even existed.
    The Lds even list them as craven & Evas children and nothing more.
    Last name is FAIRCHILD(s)
    The S was removed in the early 1900's by most relatives.
    I haven't checked other countrys, that is an idea.
    Thanks again.

    Wow, you've been doing a great work, andreamarie!
    As the question is quite old, I wonder how the things go with your family tree now and whether you've found everybody?
    Look, if you need to save all the given information about your relatives, you can try a family tree maker here That's what I use for my research. Good luck!
