Bennett's in the USA

+5 votes

It looks like I have relatives in the USA.  One of the many pictures I have here is one of Granddad Bennett's brother Dick ( I presume Richard) the photo is dated 1970 and picture Dick with his son Jack's daughter, her name is Tina and she looks to be anywhere between 12 - 18 months old I dont have a clue as to where to start looking, seeing as how I dont know where they might live ( if they are alive, and also the date 1970 there seems to be alot of records unavailable due to privacy. Any ideas?

I don't know if the location on this marriage cert will help you find him in the census data with siblings, as I am not familiar with towns within the various counties in England.

Source: England and Wales Marriage Registration Index, 1837-2005," database, FamilySearch (, William A Bennett and null, 1924; from “England & Wales Marriages, 1837-2005,” database, findmypast ( : 2012); citing 1924, quarter 4, vol. 3A, p. 1100, Edmonton, Middlesex, England, General Register Office, Southport, England

Spouse Name (available after 1911)     Strange

Hi Chris, yes that is my Grandfather, I am actually looking for his Brother called Dick which I presume will be Richard. The picture that I have linked is that of Granddads Brother Dick, and Im picking that he (Dick) may have moved at sometime to the United States, I have no idea when or to where he moved, its just the pic I have states that the man is "Uncle Dick who is holding Dick's son ( Jack) Daughter Tina USA" dated 1970.

Thank you for your help though :)
I realize that, I just thought if you could find William Arthur in a census as a child, you might come up with 'Dick' and his dob and location, search in the US for immigration, a marriage or death with the matching names of their parents.
Ah, ok, yes I found a census with Richard in it and was able to calculate his DOB from the date of census and the recorded age at that time, its just when I looked at the American census/BMD's etc etc they are vastly different from what I am used to, so many states to choose from, but, I will look at immigration, thank you I didnt even think of that. thanks again, Anne
