Re: Family Tree online event

Hi In answer to Mike's request. Thank you Russell. I heard of this on Face Book so I copied the address and when I posted it in my answer it came as Family Search (I think it may be in collaboration with Family Search) so I am writing it from the address bar: facebook.com/events/972945223175634/ .

Re: Census Page 1 info - how to record it and use it?

David The information page may not be necessary as a source record but I would always record the information contained. The enumeration district can be very helpful. On Ancestry if you scroll to below the search box and click on the England census 1881 (eg) a box to the right opens and you are able ...

Re: My Father in 1939 register

Helen
Thank you for clarification I just knew that some people had found ancestors on one site but not on the other, especially when FMP had been laggardly in updating their records.
Ann, stay safe and well.

Re: My Father in 1939 register

I believe some people have found that on Ancestry a record was open but on FMP it was redacted. I read it depended when the company updated their record set.

Re: Who should you add to your tree?

William As Colin said there is no right or wrong way to conduct your research. My experience is, particularly as you go further back in time, you might not be actually related by blood to some of these people but there could be marriages within the family community which involve these people and wit...

Re: Are English parish record images online?

Bill If the date you are looking for is in the same church record around the same date it probable that the information will be the same for all the surrounding records. The change could come when there is a new register or a new vicar. After 1813 there were forms, some vicars did record the date of...

Re: Are English parish record images online?

Bill Just as an addition to Anne's reply about Find My Past and the A -Z of records. I agree with her that look for the parish but if your search doesn't return your ancestor go back to a general search as well, as with FMP's Staffordshire records the name doesn't always turn up even if the name is ...

Re: Grandchild, parent unknown

However the eldest daughter, Alice Jane went to live with a family named Gregory. She is listed as "grandda...

Hi, I have put this under "General" as it is only an idea and wondered if members had any thoughts or had tried it.

Re: Naturalization records

Hi
Having researched a family who married German immigrants and their experiences during the 1st WW I found the same as Lorna, that they were no longer regarded as English or Irish in one case. One lady was sent to prison for staying with her sister.
