    Yes. Also, there was (is?) a time limit within which births had to be registered. Baptisms were more relaxed. People didn’t know what sex the baby was until it arrived, and might decide between the...

    I have moved this thread to General Chatter - with the appearance of fictional people, it seems more appropriate!

    Hi Tony,
    I’m afraid that my feelings about Family Search are colored by the old days of the IGI microfiche and the considerable amounts of imagination involved. I have been assured by a LDS...

    Probably looking for something better. Some farm workers moved every 6 months if their job didnít suit them.

    There was a lot of movement from Ireland to the Glasgow area. And across the...

    Did you look for a birth certificate 7nder his mother’s surname. Normally, a child can only be registered with an unmarried father’s surname if the father was present at the registration.

    Was Kathleen actually nursing at the hospital, or doing something such as administration of catering? I may be wrong, but NAAFI seems a somewhat unlikely alternative employer for a medical person!

    As well as everything that Pam said, it might be worth checking with the Burma Star Association. All my bookmarks are on my PC and I’m not, so I can’t post a link, but I’m sure Mr Google will know it.
