PM me with your details if you like and I'll find you. You can access Births, deaths and marriages for free from 1837. The only trouble is that not all the entries have been transcribed, so you need to look at the original register entries.
Hopefully have found a few of Darren's ancestors. Am pretty sure the name you were querying was Pitfield not Pickfield, as everything seems to tie up. Have answered on other postings, ie where do I start and do I exist.
Between us we should be able to help a bit.
Re: 1881 Census for Wales Please?
Many thanks for that. I forgot I could get the 1881 on Family Search! eek)
Feel really stupid now, lol.
Thank you again. That solves that little problem.:)
Answered some of your questions on your other thread. And yes, it does mean trawling through lots of names and dates, lol. I have had a look for your Thomas Thomas and found the following:
Birth of DORIS THOMAS, July/Aug/Sept Quarter 1915, Manchester, Vol No. 8d, page 376 -...
Hi again :)
BMD's are free anyway ;) it's just the census stuff, etc, you need to pay for.
Are you signing in under the UK version of Ancestry? It will still take the same user name and password, but may be easier to follow my instructions above.
Because not all entries of births...
I have a Boase family who moved from Cornwall to Wales, and 2 of the daughters married in 1874 and 1876, but I am not sure who their spouse's were :confused:
I have a Grace Osborne Boase who married in July/Aug/Sept Quarter 1874 to either William Mends or Charles Tregarthen. (The other...
Have had a quick look for you, and have come up with the following so far on your dad's side.
Birth - William Harrop, born Oct/Nov/Dec Quarter 1912 in Oldham. Vol: 83, Page 1175. The mother's maiden name is listed as "Shaw".
Birth - Hild M PITFIELD, born Oct/Nov/Dec Quarter 1920 ...
Lol. Had the same problem when I started. Began to doubt I was here at all :D
Not all the births, deaths and marriages have been put into the search engine I'm afraid. To find yourself, go into Ancestry, and underneath the search box is a line which says go directly to births...
Hi there :)
Yes, apart from during the war, the census was carried out every 10 years. Unfortunately the latest transcribed one was 1901 I'm afraid, owing to the 100 year closure on releasing census details to protect the individuals concerned.
There is, I believe, a campaign at the moment...
Hi, Don't know if this will help, but one of my ancestors died at sea in 1850. I didn't even know he had died at sea, but I knew he was a sailor and being unable to find a death certificate, I assumed this is how he must have died.
Anyway, by pure chance I tried searching the Trinity House...
It's far easier to go back than to come forward I'm afraid. Unfortunately not every name for every year of birth, marriages and death has been transcribed as yet. This means either trawling through the scanned images of every quarter of every year from 1901, or trying to find other...
I'd like to know too pwease.
As to offers of help... If anyone has any Cornwall, England, ancestors I'd be happy to try and help... especially St Ives. I live in Redruth at the moment, so can visit the Records Centre there; can visit cemetaries anywhere between here and St Ives if anyone...
Another thought... When naming children it was quite often the done thing to give a child the mother's maiden name as a middle name. So you may find that John James Edwards married a Miss Horne. Of course, it doesn't always work this way, but sometimes it's a very helpful clue. :)
Based on his age at marriage, that would make Walter's birth year approximately 1881 (if he was telling the truth about his age), I checked 1880 to 1882 and found the following births:
Walter James Edwards born April/May/June Qtr 1880 Chelsea 19 363
Walter James Edwards born...
