    Witherslack Boarding School

    Can anyone please tell me if Witherslack boarding school has always been for pupils with special needs. I am thinking possibly in the late 1970s to late 1980s. I believe that this school or group of schools are base in the North East and Cumbria areas. Thanks Julie

    Moore Family- Aston Birmingham

    Hi Dave Yes I think this must be them but I would also like to find out about Fanny born 1865. I would also like to trace the Irish roots but I do not know where to start. Do you have any idea of how I can go about it please. I have been told that Irish records are not easy to find. Thanks Julie

    Hi Sorry that I did not reply last night. I had to log off - my eyes were sore. I am the computer all day at work and I had been on a little too long. I am at work now so I am unable to look up John's occupation - I will however take a look at it tonight and will let you know. Many thanks Julie

    Hello again. I have found a death for a Fanny Gargan in 1897. This would make her born around 1865. I think she was my Gt Grandma's Sister. I am having trouble finding her birth. As far as I know it should be in Warwickshire. Can anyone help please. Thanks
