Forum: General Family History Queries

Although it is best to use specific forums for various topics, this one is for general topics that don't otherwise have a home.

  2. Sticky Thread Sticky: General Family History

  7. Cause of death Jaundice??

    Received the death cert for my GGG grandmother today and cause of death is given as Icterus, which seems to be another name for jaundice. I would have thought that this was a symptom rather than a cause. Did the doctor not want to investigate further or what? Similarly a few months earlier my...

  8. Mary Crouch 1784 Deptford

    Could someone please look up Mary Crouch who was baptised at St Paul Deptford on 04 July 1784 and see what the name of the street was as I can't make it out. It looks like "Bridge ...." and could be the name of a public house as the father's occupation is Victualler.

  9. So Sad

    I know we've all come across things in parish records or censuses that make us smile or feel sad, particularly when we see a generation of children wiped out by illness or whatever. But I've just come across a burial record for "a stranger found drowned in the Grand Beck" in the Gainford, Co...
