Have a look round, have a look at the “stickies” posted...

That can happen. If you are certain that the marriage is correct and it's the right William, it's possible that either James or Caroline was a step-parent. I see that they specified bachelor and...
Anc says that he married 9 Dec '17. Also gives the regt as Lab Batt London Regt. I THINK it says his occupation was "barman".

It would be a good idea, I think, to put the Huguenot question aside until you get further back in time and are sure which French names you are looking for. The main escape from France happened at...

Thank you, Bev!
Sorry, Paul, but we are not related to this family. Fullscot is working her way through WW1 records and, when she finds people who have been mis-filed, lists them on our strays page to make it...
Welcome to British Genealogy, Wayne. Have a look around, choose a suitable forum, and tell us a bit about your research.
He doesn’t have to have moved there, he could have been visiting, traveling through, or on holiday. What was the cause of death, and does the death certificate say where he actually died? If it was...
I've had a quick look at Scotlands People, no Thomas Seabright born 1880-1890. Looks like Helachau's find is distinctly possible.
Welcome in, Sarah. Have a look round, choose a suitable place, and tell us about part of your research. At the tops of many of many of the forums, you’ll find posts with general help for the subject...

Happy New Year (and New Decade) everyone!
May all your searches be informative!
Oh dear, Soden55, prepare to be hit by a thunderbolt!
Britain is made up of four separate countries, and heaven help anyone who puts them all under England!
There are some records that cross...

It is not unexpected, but a shock anyway. We will miss her.
Scottish records are among the easiest to find. You just have to look in the right place.
I see that you have found the Scots area of our forums, so go up a level to the General Scottish section...
Time to wish everyone a Happy Christmas, and many successful ancestor finds.
And a special thank you to our many kind members for the time they give to doing lookups and providing help throughout...
All extra crumbs of information can be useful in sorting the wanted person from any others. For example, what did he do for a living. If he had a job that involved a lot of training, he...

I see that I...

As always, thank you and your gang of volunteers, Bev.
What do you know about him, Ness?
For a start, did he survive the war? Commonwealth War Graves have 2 John F entries - one in the Merchant Navy, died aged 47 in 1940, the other is too young, having...

Welcome to the British Genealogy Forum, Tony.
Have you tried Scotland’s People? They have the surviving pre-1855 parish registers.
