    Surname Changes

    Having had a look at the names you've given, I can see the marriage entry for Edward Harrison and Ellen Ratcliffe but certainly nothing for an Edwin Addison and Helen Radcliffe. I was wondering if you've obtained that marriage certificate, to confirm one way or another? It occurred to me that...

    I think the best thing to do with Rose Elizabeth is to get her birth certificate as well - at least then you'd know. For all we know she could be adopted! Rose Elizabeth Webb Sep 1873 Lichfield 6b 419 I agree that the most likely marriage is James and Mary Meloy Sep 1867 Lichfield. If...

    Hi Alvin, I don't know if there is a distant connection but I have quite a few Thomas Seawards from Devon in my family tree. However, the furthest I go back at the moment is about 1808, so way past the time your ancestor emigrated. I've not been able to see any marriages between Thomas...

    West Derby cemetery records

    West Derby cemetery records

    Hi grannie, I don't mind going at all. I just hope there's an headstone for me to take a photo of and some info for you. I'd hate for you to have had your hopes built up for nothing. I hold the deeds of a family grave in Anfield cemetery and was very disappointed to find only a flat piece of...
