Yes I think that is him in 1881. However after posting this last night I looked for the informant of Williams birth Ben Whiteley and found a Ben and Eliza Whiteley living in Mirfield, West Yorkshire with their 3 year old son William Whiteley in the 1871 census. I now believe this could be him!
I have just received my 2x great grandfather s birth certificate and I was expecting some more information.
I assumed from the GRO index that no father was listed so knew not to expect that however I have no idea who the informant was or where they were living as the address just...
I have struggled to find my 2x great grandfather in any census' up until he began 'lodging' at my 2x great grandmothers house in 1901.
I have just bought his birth certificate and I expected a full address etc but it hasn't delivered.
I cannot find William or his mother (with...
I've never taken two looks at the tax records that have come up on Ancestry as potentially being my relatives, I don't understand them.
Would someone be able to give me some information on them? What are they and how can I use them to get information from?
Unfortunately I have yes and it redirected me to this website where I have to pay. I assume it's different for different states ?
Not sure though! I'm not too eager about paying as he's not a direct descendant of mine, although it would be nice for some information on this guy as I...
I've found a Naturalisation Record Index on Ancestry for a relative who went from Isle of Man to Minnesota.
I have found the place online where I can order it from but before I buy it does any one know what kind of information would be on there? I'm not even sure what year it is from I...
Hi i'm really struggling to find a census record for Edwin and Margaret Fisher for the year 1891.
I have Edwin's census from 1881 and he is living in Mirfield, West Yorkshire with his parents Abraham and Annie.
In second qtr 1881 he married Margaret Callin in Ravensthorpe, West Yorkshire and...
Had another look this aft.
Found a Margaret Callen aged 12 who is a servant in Malew, Isle of Man in the 1861 census. It says approx. year of birth 1849.
Not sure if this is too much of a coincidence. Will try trace her. If this is her this could potentially explain why she isn't in the census?
That's so strange isn't it. Although I've stumbled across their census' and there's a Margaret Kelly on there who would be born around 1850. She is listed as a neice. I've traced her census' and in 1881 she is living with her 2 year old son in IOM so don't think this is her.
Incase I've traced...
Thank you! I will do that.
I don't take other trees on Ancestry as gospel however a lot have Annie's father as John Callan and mother as Jane. However Margaret isn't a sibling so I don't believe it to be correct, it's a tale Grandma's told me for years lol
I struggled at first too she is registered in the 1881 census as 'Maggie Callan'
