    William Butterfield

    Yes I think that is him in 1881. However after posting this last night I looked for the informant of Williams birth Ben Whiteley and found a Ben and Eliza Whiteley living in Mirfield, West Yorkshire with their 3 year old son William Whiteley in the 1871 census. I now believe this could be him!

    William Butterfield

    Hi everyone I have struggled to find my 2x great grandfather in any census' up until he began 'lodging' at my 2x great grandmothers house in 1901. I have just bought his birth certificate and I expected a full address etc but it hasn't delivered. I cannot find William or his mother (with...

    Deciphering tax records UK

    Hi everyone, I've never taken two looks at the tax records that have come up on Ancestry as potentially being my relatives, I don't understand them. Would someone be able to give me some information on them? What are they and how can I use them to get information from? Thanks Danielle

    Naturalisation Records USA

    Hi Ellie, Unfortunately I have yes and it redirected me to this website where I have to pay. I assume it's different for different states ? Not sure though! I'm not too eager about paying as he's not a direct descendant of mine, although it would be nice for some information on this guy as I...

    Naturalisation Records USA

    Hi, I've found a Naturalisation Record Index on Ancestry for a relative who went from Isle of Man to Minnesota. I have found the place online where I can order it from but before I buy it does any one know what kind of information would be on there? I'm not even sure what year it is from I...

    Isle of Man?!

    Thanks Ellie, I do find it hard to believe they would have so many children and not baptise one of them though, I will get Margaret's marriage certificate and hope it provides some answers!

    Isle of Man?!

    Had another look this aft. Found a Margaret Callen aged 12 who is a servant in Malew, Isle of Man in the 1861 census. It says approx. year of birth 1849. Not sure if this is too much of a coincidence. Will try trace her. If this is her this could potentially explain why she isn't in the census?

    Isle of Man?!

    Potentially. But too much of a coincidence to not be on any of the census' aswell.

    Isle of Man?!

    That's so strange isn't it. Although I've stumbled across their census' and there's a Margaret Kelly on there who would be born around 1850. She is listed as a neice. I've traced her census' and in 1881 she is living with her 2 year old son in IOM so don't think this is her. Incase I've traced...

    Isle of Man?!

    Hi Emeltee, I have Annie and Abraham's marriage certificate, it says her father is John Callen and that he's a farmer. He was still alive at the time of their marriage in March 27th 1880

    Isle of Man?!

    Thank you! I will do that. I don't take other trees on Ancestry as gospel however a lot have Annie's father as John Callan and mother as Jane. However Margaret isn't a sibling so I don't believe it to be correct, it's a tale Grandma's told me for years lol Thanks again Danielle
