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

  7. Question What happened to unidentified bodies?

    We complain about "losing" our ancestors between Censuses and attribute their disappearance to various sources, including abduction by aliens - perhaps a possiblity when a whole family disappears! But when one person has disappeared, could he or she have become an unidentified body, and, in that...

  10. When Wills clash with Parish Records

    I thought that now I have found several wills things would all work out! But it is a head-splitting nightmare! Everyone is called "my Nephew John of Middleton" and the Parish Records assure me he was neither born there, nor died there, nor married there, and it is all pre 1841 census and in...

  12. Birth Registration

    This question is related to birth registration UK 1920ís. If for any reason a childís surname changes whilst he is a minor, (for example if there is a separation and mother remarries and takes the kids with her), would the birth be re-registered? I ask because there is such a case where...

  15. Municipal Graveyards and Burial Details

    I'm trying to confirm where various members of my London family were actually buried. Is my only source of information the actual cemetary office itself or have they submitted their records to larger archives in the same way that churches have given their registers?

  17. How to trace pre 1837?

I know about parish records and such; I've heard mention of removal orders, and of course there are wills and also some directories. In...

  19. Such a sad discovery!

    I think I'll be adding a new tale to my family history work soon. Having subbed to the 1911 now I have made the most appalling discovery. When the 1911 first came out on credits there was just one of my great uncles who remained elusive - and his three children. By rights they should have been...
