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...

  1. Why aren’t Curates helpful to my lot?

    Can anyone explain why the Curates, Rectors, and Church Clerks can’t be more helpful to my family? As I trawl through the Parish records of Norfolk, threading my way through the ink blots, crossing outs and spidery handwriting, amidst the words of the boldly and proudly literate men of the cloth,...

  4. Are you searching for BURLEY family?

    It's a long shot, but I'd love to think that these medals could be reunited with the family. I don't think I'm allowed to add a link but if you go to Ebay and search for "WWI PAIR TO CASUALTY - QUEEN'S REGT + MIC ETC" you'll see the medals of Private Ernest Charles Burley, who was buried in...

  10. Confused and don't know which way to go.

    A branch of my tree-line is causing grief. I have looked into IGI, various site on Ancestry as I have a full membership, the same with FMP and lastly with the Parish Records and even email the OPC for assistance. The OPC has agreed that my presumption is a pretty good guess but cannot say for...

  12. Burials, hangings and Zulus

    Hi everyone, I've come to a bit of a stop with my family tree and so have taken time out to look at some other things I've got hanging around. One of these was the case of John Withey, who was hung in Bristol in 1889 for the murder of his wife. I wondered where he is likely to be buried. Would...

  13. Trade Directories - a query

    I'm currently searching the trade directories (mainly Wrights and Kellys) and keep coming across a TN reference number by some people - would anyone know what this is - is it a registration (a bit like the modern taxi licences) or something else - it doesn't seem to be tied to a particular trade. ...

  15. Question Local custom/ a cry for female emancipation?

    Does anyone know whether it was local custom (or indeed Welsh law) that a widow should use her maiden name in the Welsh census? I ask this because my great grandparents (x4) had been married for 54 years before his death in 1837. At the 1841 Welsh census, his widow appears under her own maiden...
