    3. This is the first time I have used this service and not even sure I have the correct email address but here goes! Some years ago a member of GOONS very kindly furnished me with some valuable information about my family, the GELDERS. I put it all to one side for a few years and now want to get started again. Unfortunately the gentleman who gave me the information is no longer a member of GOONS and I am unable to contact him at his address. My problem is that he told me that my 4 times g grandfather was born in Huddersfield in 1804. Being a GOONS member I was sure the information would be correct. However I cannot find a birth record for him. He is called William Gelder and lived in Lindley, Huddersfield and worked in one of the mills. He married Harriet Brooke and I have their marriage details and all their children. I would like to take this back further but am at a loss as what to do next and wondered if anyone could make any suggestions. Many thanks Norrie Earl (nee Gelder)

    3. Is it possible that your William was christened in Bradford (about 12 miles away)?

    3. Thank you so much Corinne. This does seem very feasible. However the 1851 census does say that he was born in Huddersfield.
