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: BG in Who Do You Think You Are Magazine

    Afternoon all, Just a quick message to say BG got a small mention in the August edition of Who Do You Think You Are Magazine under the "Best Websites" section. A small victory for us all, and considering the top 3 were Rootschat with over 200,000 members and over 4 million posts, The Great...

  3. 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...

  2. Is there a logical way to do this FH thing?

    HI, I've been researching on and off for about 3 years, but sometimes I feel like a flailing octopus. I seem to go in all directions at once, and can't work out the best way to proceed or record my findings. Does anyone have a system that works for them? Lindt

  3. Question Marriage laws

    Does anyone know the answer to this question? If a girl married aged 19 in 1852 would she be subject to some kind of permission as she was under 21?

  7. Presumption of death?

    Let us assume that a wife is deserted by her husband. In course of time she finds a new partner but cannot marry him because she still has a (presumed) living husband.
