    Census to Excel

    This may be old hat to some but I saw a video a while back on creating an excel spreadsheet/database from the census records on Ancestry. I can't tell you how helpful this has been when you narrow down your ancestors to a specific area. One branch of my family hail from Pemberton in Lancashire...

    I like a challenge but sometimes it can be too much.

    Not sure how much autosomal DNA may help you Benny. I’m fairly new to DNA so don’t have a great deal of knowledge but (to date) mine has been no help with my tree. It’s not specific enough for counties, mine mainly states NW England (with a percentage of Scandinavian/Viking which I think is...

    Happy to help if you want to progress any of these further but I'll stop for now as half the fun is making your own discoveries ;)

    Not finding anything else for a baptism in Cornwall sadly, most seem to be in and around Somerset :( I'm just coming up with 1820/1823 baptism in Madron to John and Jane which is too late.

    Yes, definitely think it was was given as McDermond or something similar sounding. Can't really understand the James but certainly John in other census returns.

    Excellent. Many thanks Julie. Ancestry wasn't even bringing them up as McAermond in the searches. Got them on FMP under McAumond though.

    Catherine Ann McDermott

    Can anybody find this family in 1861. Tried every variation of spelling I can come up with to no avail :( I've been through 376 households in the same street in 1861 and sadly there were not there then. I need to try and tie Catherine in to this family and unfortunately she was working elsewhere...

    Catherine Ann McDermott

    The surname McDermid actually appears on Catherine’s marriage certificate so likely that’s how they thought to spell it.

    Thanks Julie. That helps enormously with a MMN.

    Just to update this, I now have the birth certificate for the Auckland, Durham 1851 birth (mmn McIntay) and the father is indeed Patrick McDermott and not John as I thought. This family stayed very stable around Crook, Durham. So back to square one in trying to find the birth or census records...

    Photos on my tree used incorrectly by others

    You could download your gedcom file from ancestry and then create another separate tree with it on ancestry using a different tree name. The new tree will contain all your ancestors without any of the media/photos attached, just the facts. You could make the new tree without any media 'public'...
