    Coal miners death

    They usually show as either Ashton-in-makerfield or St Helens. I would imagine that miners would live near enough the coalfield to walk to everyday so they cant be far beyond those areas.

    Coal miners death

    Following on from my dearly beloved Thilwinds:confused: I wondered if my John's early death at 37 was due to him being a coalminer. So I did a check on coal miner deaths and found John and Ralph Durdom (father and son) had died in a mining disaster in 1850 at Evans and Turners Haydock colliery...

    false advertising

    I agree! The only Barbados records they had when I took out the subscription was the slave records which were, and still are, before the period I am interested in. However, because I had the world wide I ended up with the marriage records of another branch of my tree in Canada and some other...

    'head coup'

    Wow, you would have thought with an obvious head injury they wouldnt have accepted him in the army. Very interesting though, the only distinguishing marks any of mine had were a tattoo lol

    false advertising

    Hi Susan On A******y try putting in West Indies instead of Bermuda, I found that some records are listed under that rather than specific Islands. I did the same as you and upgraded to try and get records on Barbados but cant say I have found anything worth mentioning for my research:mad...

    Thilwind/Thirlwind/Trilwind

    Thanks Maddie As far as I know there is no record of them moving out of Lancashire so I suppose thats a good thing. I think that apart from an Aunt that lived in Cornwall for a while, I have managed to get the first Thilwind to leave Lancashire on a permanent basis for centuries :D and he doesnt...
