    Kourgerakis in Crete

    Dave, I wonder if you are still around. I have just revived this thread to see if anything else has eventuated. I never ever heard from Westrip. I now have this information. Om 1910 there was an incident in the Lindsay household. Grandpa arrived home with a small bundle, a baby boy. On...

    County Derry, Ireland

    Thanks Ellie, no we are not related, in fact I think you are closer to the Clan Lachlan than I am. Mine all came from Paisley, Renfrewshire or Lanarkshire. I know all the country towns in NSW you mentioned though.

    I presume I am to find these on line? Is your ancestor a McLauchlan Ellie? I may have mentioned I had 10% Scandinavian in my DNA. I actually answered this several hours ago, but have lost the message - sorry.

    County Derry, Ireland

    Thanks Ellie, I was really excited to see the Clan Maclachlan and the castle. It mentions the battle of Culloden, and one of my now deceased rellies told my dad a few things she'd heard - namely (1) The Laughlan family was decimated during the battle of Culloden in 1745. (2) The Lauchlan's...

    County Derry, Ireland

    Thanks Ellie, but it is asking me for a subscription - way too expensive for me in Australian money, but not only that, its too risky to pay for a William Laughlan/ McLagan/ Lacklan on the chance it might be one of them. If it was a name that could only be spelt one way, I think I'd have a...

    County Derry, Ireland

    Is anyone familiar with Irish records in both County Clare and County Derry? I'm in Australia. I have William Laughlan who married Jane Stewart possibly around the 1820s and had two sons that I know of William b 1827, Joseph b 1830. My problem is I have seen the name spelt Lacklan Lauchline...

    I will. Hope to hear from the girl in Qld. I won't tell you we also have a family of Cooks in Overbury, but they are pretty well documented. My grandmother was the descendent of the Hampshire lot, and my great grandmother's family on Pop's side was from Overbury, tho she herself was born in...

    I quite agree. They always say you have to have proof of everything before you can claim the people are yours, yet everything points in our favour except the theory of him coming from Manchester. And death certificates are only as good as the information their relatives put on the...

    We (my daughter & I) are pretty convinced its our John & Frank (among other children), but when the family say in their death notices in Trove, that their John Cook was late of Manchester, it has sown a few seeds of doubt.

    Repeating an earlier request, thus "would it be possible to look up John Cook from Manchester in 1851,61, 71 for John Cook. I am guessing he'd have been born around 1843. I know I have asked for a John Cook in Petersfield, Hants, but all the information after he arrived in Australia points to...
