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.

  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. Miss Nellie Golley - born Aug. 1 1891

    The lady named above is my grand Aunt. I don't believe I have posted about her in the past, but she is presenting me with a bit of a mystery prior to her marriage on the 28 April 1919.

    In 1922, my grandmother returned to England for a visit. On her return to Canada, she was required to fill out Form 30A, which, among other things, required her to indicate whom she was visiting. Her form indicates she was visiting her mother at "75 Alms House, Wokingham". Was that merely a...
