    Is someone up for a challenge??

    Hi Claire, No I don't know that site you mentioned but I'm not well up on Army stuff! I searched for deaths on A.........y site but didn't find anything. At The National Archives you have to search yourself or pay someone to do it for you. Which is what I think I may have to do. I tried...

    Is someone up for a challenge??

    Hi folks, Well latest update on this is that I received the marriage cert for John Webb and Elizabeth Robinson today. I think the Registrar must have had a hearing problem or it was a clerical error. I'm pretty sure this is the correct marriage certificate as the father of the bride is named...

    Is someone up for a challenge??

    Hi Claire, Thanks for trying to help me with this. I did find the death cert for John Thomas Webb but unfortunately UK death certs don't name the parents and they give very little info on the origins of the person. Just the basics like cause of death, date, residence at time of death etc. So...

    Is someone up for a challenge??

    Hi Ben, Yes I am one step ahead of you and I decided to ring Blackpool Registrars to see if they would do a search for me. I gave them all the details of the marriage cert and they asked me for the occupation of John Webb so they could perhaps match up the details. They have been brilliant and...

    Is someone up for a challenge??

    Aahhh, thought I knew you! Yes, I think I have spoken (so to speak) to you before on BritGen. Think it was about my illegitimacy success with my g/g/grandfather, I found his real father. Don't know if you remember? Well, this Webb nightmare is my husband's tree and even some of the mods on...

    Is someone up for a challenge??

    Hi Ben, Yes I will search through the Patish Records. I've got nothing to lose have I? Fortunately, my local records office is not too far so I will try and get there next week. Thanks for your help and advice. Best wishes Elaine. P.S. I know your name do you frequent another forum?

    Is someone up for a challenge??

    Well, I've searched through the marriages abroad but zilch again! I tried ALL records just to be on the safe side. Worth a try, shame I didn't hit on something. I'm sure this elusive John T Webb doesn't want to be found as a child!:rolleyes: Thanks anyway Ben, Elaine.

    Is someone up for a challenge??

    Just seen your thread on the marriage abroad! Yes, that's an idea, I will have a look on the website, although I've never traced marriage's abroad before. Good thinking Ben! Thanks again, Elaine.

    Is someone up for a challenge??

    Hi Ben, Yes that's a possibility I suppose but I don't think I'm ever going to find any real evidence am I? It's always going to be a guess, which is really bugging me. I just don't know how to proceed with this. Why is there a difference with the dob 1847 or 1857? I'm inclined to go with...

    Is someone up for a challenge??

    Hi Ben, Yes, I did consider the John T Webb at Chorlton I found him in a census but I can't be sure that is him because I have no idea of his parent's names. It is a possibility but I have no evidence. The only records I have for the Navy is as follows: John Thomas Webb dob 16th April 1857...

    Is someone up for a challenge??

    Hi folks, Please bear with me as this is my first post on this forum and I'm not sure if I'm in the right place! Ok, here goes if someone can conquer this I will eat my hat!:) I have John Thomas Webb b.1847 or 1857 (this is another query!!) in Great Bolton, Lancashire. He is married to...

    Hello from a Lancashire Lass!

    Hi everyone, Thank you for the warm welcome. I will post my query over the next few days when I have a clear head. I have been out celebrating tonight after passing an exam, so it's not the best time to try and explain my genealogy problems!:smilie: I look forward to joining you again on...

    Hello from a Lancashire Lass!

    Hi to everyone, I am a genealogy addict and I have just found this forum. It looks great. I have been a member on another well known forum where I got loads of help apart from my 'Webb' brickwall, which nobody seems to be able to conquer!! :( Hope someone on here may be able to help me with...
