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.

  3. Scullow Surname

    Does anyone know anything about this surname? I'd like to find out what happened to a William Scullow who married Ann Allen (a possible relative) in 1625 in Droitwich, Worecestershire, and who may have ended up on Alvechurch (same county) later in that century. Unfortunately mentions of the surname...

  4. Question SMYRNA Turkey

    On the 1881 census I've found a birth for an Alexander James Tuson born c.1864 in Smyrina (B Sb), Turkey. From other research I've discovered him in Plymouth and migrating to Australia in 1909. I'd like to find his parents. Where would I look for his birth registration/certificate? David
