Hi All thanks for the add. Vast tree so far with over 60,000! Ireland, Australia, USA and Canada. Duffy, Moon, Daley, Meyer
Hi, I am looking for any clues on marriage of Ellen Lockhart and John Anderson, Carrickfergus 1844. John originally from Edinburgh, Ellen born 1823. Ellen died 1900 in Belfast. John alive in Belfast in 1892 but dead by 1900
Hi. I am an Australian tracing my family (Burnett, Wright, Green,Kirby) back to Yorkshire and the Village of Thorner in the 18th century and earlier. If anyone has a shared history of these names and has photos of the area I would be most grateful to hear from them.
G'day, I'm new to this forum. I would like to ask for opinions about a situation with one of my ancestors. Without giving a name to start with, I have an ancestor who had a child at the age of 48/49. She had not had any children for 9 years before this birth. There was a daughter at home, aged 15 at the time of this birth.
Having done our DNA tests, search/filter options make this an interesting puzzle.
