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...

  3. "A marriage has been arranged..."

    Just curious as to the wording of a marriage announcement. Almost all of them run along the lines of "The engagement is annnounced..." but this one states "A marriage has been arranged and will take place shortly..." Would it be unfair to suppose the bride might have been pregnant at the time?
