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.

  1. Sticky Thread Sticky: Important message for all forum members

    People who research family history are very generous with their time and help, especially towards those new to research. This is great because it shows what a friendly bunch we all are. However, there are certain things which are not allowed and this includes breaching copyright or licence - At...

  2. Sticky Thread Sticky: General Family History

    Hello folks. This is just a reminder that this forum exists. As well as general questions on family and local history; it's as good a board to use as any if you've 'lost' someone, somewhere and want to begin tracking them. I'm sure that you know the sort of thing I mean, an ancestor was...

  1. Re-registering births?

    Just a quick query for a friend of mine who's puzzled on her family tree. I can't mention any names as the parties involved are probably still alive. Quite a tangled web, but in essence, we've found 2 births, one in 1960 and one in 1962, we think brother and sister. We've then found entries...

  2. An unexpected result

    Having spoken to my father about his grandfather and being told that he died in 1940 "just after the outbreak of war" I confidently sent off for the death certificate for the only David Smith who died in Stoke in 1940. It wasn't him! Even though his daughter E Smith was informant (my grandmother...

  4. Carver & Gilder

    My first question(s) on this forum so please be gentle :rolleyes5: Am I right in assuming that, in the mid 19th Century, someone described as a carver gilder would be likely to be doing bespoke work for customers at "the top end of the market"? In particular, might he be directly employed at a...

  6. Question English OPR Terms

    Hi All, I wonder if anyone has come across the word "Virgin" used in an Old Parish Record for a marriage. The obvious reason for this springs to mind, but Ann Emery in the example below was about 37 years old at the time of her marriage. Would there be any other reason for recording her as a...
