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.

  2. Slight variation on name?

    I took up Ancestry’s offer of a free look at the National Probate Calendar and was pleased to find the record of my great-great-uncle James Turner Moffat. :smile5: It’s definitely his; the places he lived, his occupation and his widow’s name are correct. It states that he died in Margate in the...

  3. Was there an "etiquette"with bridesmaids?

    I am trying to obtain a copy of a title deed for a cottage at Epwell in Oxfordshire. I am assuming that there is a current body that deals with modern property transactions. Would they keep old records? I am talking 1750 here. Can anyone supply a point of contact, please.
