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...

  4. Were Centenarians reported in newspaper?

    Rather than tag on to an old thread, I thought it may be better to start a new one. My 4x great grandmother Mary Ann Curnick nee Simpson died 9th April 1876 and her age was given as 100 (death registered by daughter). Her burial entry on 15th April 1876 at St. Mary Battersea also gives her ages...

    Just discovered a relationship that I had not seen before in F.H. research when reviewing census records. 1881. Census : A chap aged 34 was a railway labouer - a widower - with a 12 year old son and a 7 year old daughter. Nothing unusual in that, but also living with him was: A 'lady' aged...

  7. 1911 Census and handwriting of ancestors

    My wife thinks I'm 'nuts' and many of you may think the same as she!!! From what I've been given to understand, the 'head of house' completed the census in his/her own hand, If this be true, the 'boy wonder' has another collection coming up - all the ancestors as heads in 1911 - with...

    I never seem to work things out logically. Can anyone explain to me why most of the inmates/paupers of the Royston Union workhouse were children.Where were the adults? My great grandmother and her three young children were transferred from the Union Workhouse in Fulham where there seemed only to...

    I considered posting this on "The Funny Side of Life" forum because it's the biggest genealogical laugh I've had in over 30 years of researching. A few minutes ago I found a public tree on A*** that includes my 3 x Great Grandmother. Bennetta Coates b. 1789, died 1892. Now this lady is my...

  13. Help With Baptism Records

    I am trying to find all the children of John and Linda Brill of Uxbridge, Middlesex. Its proving problematic as it seems some were known by one of their middle names and not their first and some of them had the same name - for example there is (as far as I can tell) a Louis John who was known as...

I can only find one record of a Baines marrying a Wakefield, but not my gran. I've checked the records at Gretna Green without success. Any suggestions...

  15. Question What happened to 'Little Bertie'?

    For a few years now, we have been wondering what happened to my great-great-grand uncle Herbert Sydney Reardon. He was born in 1904 to James Reardon and Maria Caroline Southgate in Rochford, Essex. He has always been left a 'dead-end' on the tree because no one knew much about him. According to...

  16. Gretna Green

    I seem to recall many moons ago a flurry of activity in the 60s/70s when several English teenagers used to flee across the border into Gretna Green to get married quickly (either shotgun or without their parent's permission?) I think this was because Scottish law was different to English law...
