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...

  7. Why would a child NOT be baptised?

    There appears to be no problem for an unmarried girl having an illegitimate child, and having that child baptised. Could an unmarried man, who the lady he fathered the child with deserted him, also baptise his child? This birth took place in Cornwall about 1832.

  9. Finding a mariner's death before 1823

    What records would be available for me to find a death registration for a mariner before 1823 as I don't know the location of his death. I do have a copy of a will dated 1803 where he names his wife as executor but does that mean he died or created the will in 1803?
