My family tree just does not fit together I seem to be missing something I think ,my paternal grandfather is Alfred William Jackson who was born in cotheridge in Worcestershire I think 1890/1891 he was buried may 8 th 1961 in ashperton chuch I have the church parish record from the Vicar ,his parents I believe were George jackson born in gotherington,Bishops Cleeve in 1854 ish and Dinah Taylor 1854 from great washbourne Gloucester ,and George’s parents were George Jackson  1817 from Bishops Cleeve and Matilda long from Norton born 1814 but there seems to be a big gap between parent and child I have the 1911 census that states George and Dinah have been married 36 years had 10 children but 1 died ,the family know of 6 sons but something just isn’t adding up ,I would be very grateful for any help at all

Think I have George born 1854 in the 1861 Census, his parents are actually George born 1817 and Isabella born 1814. Unless this is a second marriage! Further research required!

Hi every census apart from the 1861 shows George married Matilda long it’s only that census that they have wrote Isabella but I’ve searched and searched and Matilda long born 1814 in Norton ,married George jacksons 1817 from gotherington ,he was my 2nd grandfather so this is confusing !! Also there is a 7 year gap between the 1st and 2nd child ? And the census also should say Thomas was 11 months not 11 years as he was born in 1860 ,

Hi Angie, its not that uncommon to discover unknown siblings in the 1911 census, I discovered one of my GG's was one of 16!!!

Your dates don't look unrealistic but the best way is to start with the 'facts' you do know and source the profile around those then work backwards generation by generation. When you are on you profiles page click the drop down from the tabs at the top that has their wiki-id. Click search; select familysearch as the site you want and then start sourcing!!

When you find your 1911 census you can add it to your profile by copy and pasting the source citation at the bottom of the page!

The best thing about this is the direct link to the source is saved on the profile so you don't need to go hunting for it again!

Hope that help? I'll try finding the census you mentioned for you!

To fill in the gaps for those missing children use the GRO Index for births & deaths, which now includes mother's maiden name for births & age on death.

You will need to register, but the site is free to use.
