I've had two queries from different people asking how they can find the names of the fathers of their ancestors who were born illegitimately. They asked if the church could tell them if they wrote to the church and asked. I had always assumed that the father's name doesn't appear because he didn't acknowledge being the father and therefore no record was made of his name. Is it possible to find out the names of fathers of these people?

Hi June
Sometimes you can have luck to find the father if they have going to court with the case.

Thanks, Bert. These events happened back in the 1800s and involved farm people, so I don't imagine they went to court about it.
