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

  1. Birth recorded twice different surname

    Looking into my late mother-in-law's family history I've come across 2 records of her birth. Both with the same date, district and page number but 1 shows just "Iris Ivy Finlay" under the F's and the other "Iris Ivy Stuart Finlay" under the S's. Does this happen often?

  4. 'Visitor' on a census.

    I will preface this with an "I know you can't take everything on the census as gospel, mistakes happened, etc", just pondering this conundrum. Looking at 1861 census (Piece: 307 Folio: 45 Page Number: 1) at the people who are Schedule 2 and 3 on the page who are both living at the same...

    As some of you will have realised, I am currently trawling through just one section of the above records looking for an ancestor who is hiding from me. The title of this collection of records is VERY misleading. It contains Service Records from as early as the 1880's and as late as (so far)...
