    1. [ENG-NORTH-YORKS] Re Alice Anderson's child (Ailsa Petrie)
    2. M Greenhow
    3. Hi Ailsa, was the child born in Dewsbury called Harold? Just Harold? Any middle names? Just having a few moments trawling around to see if anything stands out. Do you know if Alice came from Dewsbury area? Helps the more info we have. I have some knowledge of Dewsbury, not that it may necessarily help of course! But I’m originally from West Yorks & worked for many years in Dewsbury & have ancestors there myself. I spotted a Harold Anderson on the 1901 in an institution in South of England, born Dewsbury BUT I noticed too another possible Harold born 1893 in Dewsbury, so.....not sure. Margaret (Greenhow)

    3. Hi Margaret, I don't know whether I have replied to your message. This Anderson family is a real puzzle and a sad one, too. On the surface, irt would appear that either Alice or Alfred walked away from their family - Alice for I don't know who or where and Alfred for Harriet Woodward and a second family. The Harold ANDERSON you spotted in an institution on the 1901 census id the same one. I have written to the Children's Society in London and it has been confirmed. Why he was there is another mystery.  I could purchase his complete file, but unfortunately it would be too expensive for me to justify. As you have some knowledge of Dewsbury and the area, perhaps you could tell me which repository it would be best for me to write to, to enquire about possible records. Dewsbury Library, West Yorkshire Archives, or the Huddersfield & District Family History Society? I have been told that there should be other indexes available as well as the GRO ones.
