PLEASE NOTE: When this question was asked the amount of information available online was very restricted and the only census available (on a CD) was the 1881 census. The answer given below should be carefully checked using the additional information now readily available online.

Edited posting to a query which was "lost" when the old forum collapsed - February 2001

Catherine McCarthy (bedfordcathy @t wants to know the background of Hilda BROWN, who married Sam WORKER on 22 Dec 1918 in Radlett Parish Church. She had lived in Station Road, Radlett.

If you want to find out about Hilda and Sam's place of birth and their parents the first stage is to get a copy of their marriage certificate so you know who her father was, his occupation, and her age and address at the time of marriage. assuming you don't already know when she was born.

While the marriage register for Radlett  has not been indexed by the LDS, the baptismal register has been indexed for the period in question - and does not list a Hilda BROWN. In fact you need to be very careful in your investigations and you may find some useful hints on Getting Started . BROWN is a very common name - and by way of an example 10 Hilda BROWN born 1880 are listed on the 1881 census.
