There is very little information here to start a search. Here is my advice:

You need a date of marriage and a subsequent marriage certificate. This will give the name of the father and a definitive age (as near as dammit anyway).

Then you can use this age to get a year of birth and can search for a birth certificate using the fathers name.

Both parents names are on the birth cert along with a maiden name. You can then start census searches pre-1901 to go further back.

You can obtain certificates online at the following address:

http://www.statistics.gov.uk/registration/general_register.a...

They will carry out searches within a 5 year period....

Hi Pauline. Can you help me? My grandfather was Sgt Thomas George Miskin who was shot down in 1941. His wife was Phyllis Kathleen Higgins. I think he had about 6 brothers and two of my 2nd cousins have shown up in Scotland from a dna match - Heather Tutt and Peter Anderson

Id like to know his brothers names or his parents

Thanks Tony

Thats interesting. My grandmother was Phyllis Katheen Miskin and my grandfather Thomas George Miskin. I wonder how close we are related? I know Thomas had 6 brothers I think. Im in NZ

Tony,
Not my research but ... I understand that Thomas George and George C MISKIN b1927 were 4th cousins. So, you are not very closely related to George C's descent and I guess your father remains the best person to help you with your grandparents families.
