    Sue - just had a look at this. The first witness is simply N. Flanegan. Over the years I've collected quite a few marriages where the witnesses just sign with their initial and surname.

    Oh, heck - I've just been 'upgraded' to the new version. I don't have the same problems you all seem to have with the actual interface - times move on, but it's so slow now - and I'm on a super fast...

    If you want a quick short-cut on that infamous new search page, just put Duke for the forename, Sutherland for the Surname and 1786 in the year of birth. Fill in the 'Place your ancestor might have...

    Spot on here! I'm so glad someone else thinks like me. I have always cited the RG refs for a census and its 'owner' The National Archives, because surely that is the universal reference and you...

    I face exactly this dilemma at the moment. The rumour in our family was that my 4xgreat grandfather Thomas Jameson came from Scotland. However in Ashton in Makerfield where he lived and where his...

    Regardless of whichever site you mean here, Madcap, the assumption that people did NOT move about prior to 1834 is equally flawed, I'm afraid. :)

    In my Stokes family we have used Charles as a forename or middle name in every branch since 1703. Also telling, though, is the lack of certain names, I find. We have no Georges at all. In the...

    I once saw a wonderful website from a young gal purporting to be the 17th great-granddaughter of the Roman empress Livia (58BC-29AD). Apart from the fact that any ancient historian could prove to...

    As long as it's not George. I was hoping for a girl, to be honest. It would have been the first time a little girl was actually born to be queen now they've changed the Mediaeval rulings. Ah, dash...

    Pretty sure that George is a husbandman and Joane is a spinster, yes. But as Sue says, to be absolutely sure we would need to have the full reference.

    I have to agree, Wendy. I loved Legacy when I first got it - as I thought the source writer would be a boon. It turned out to be over-complicated in the end. So I went back to Family Historian.
