I am now researching another branch of the family.
Census states they came from Russia.
Samuel Lewis (Louis, Levy) HINDEN (about 1876 in Russia)
and his wife Florence Henrietta COHEN (about 1879 in Russia)
Familytree says his name was Israel Lewis Hinden.
Hello to all,
again I'm working on the Robinson family and we found out that
was born 6th, April 1909 in West Derby, Lancashire
So it must be
Gertrude - A/J 1909 W Derby Liverpool 8b 417
Today we have been told that she had a sister with the name
Margaret or Margaret Ellen...
The Elizabeth and Clifton Barracks in Minden seem very interesting.
Another thought is:
Is there another Newbury in UK? Maybe it was a small village in 1930 and later it was a part of another city?
What do you think?
I already have a posting in the English forum, but I thought it would be of help to ask my question here too.
Is there a way to find out which regiments have been in Minden, Germany in the timeframe of 1948-1950?
I have a friend which was given up for adoption at the age of 6 in 1956...
My friend's mother was not married with Brian Chapman.
She was born out of wedlock. Her birth and adoption took place in Minden, Germany. Her mother was german too.
She had a lot of luck to get her adoption papers after such a long time (54 years). They mostly will be destroyed after 30 years...
On my friend's adoption papers is only the name, DOB and place of birth listed.
As far as I know no middle name. His mother's maiden name is not mentioned because it's not usual on german adoption papers.
Maybe they made a mistake and Newbury was the last residence? Or it was Newborough instead...
again I need your kind help.
A friend of mine is searching for her birthfather. She was adopted at the age of 6 when her mother died.
She now has her adoption files and her birthfather is listed as:
Brian (Bryan?) Chapman, born October 1930 in Newbury.
He served the British army and...
I have a little mystery on Margaret Ada Jeffers married to John R. Weekes:
Birth Margaret Ada Jeffers, 1869 Greater London, Surrey
Census 1871 says estimated birth year 1870 Streatham, Surrey
Census 1901 says says 25 years old, so estimated birth year is 1876 Streatham, Surrey
Census 1911 says...
I just sent an e-mail to my sister-in-law in Liverpool. I hope she can remember some details on Gertrude Robinson.
Can someone please make a lookup in the 1911 Census? I know Norman Thomas Weekes is listed there. At that time he must be around 2 years old.
Thanks again for all your help...
This is what I have of the mother's side of my husband:
his grandfather was
Norman Thomas Weekes
born 1909, Toxteth, Lancashire
died 1987 in Liverpool
married (1934) with
I cannot find anything on her
I have to sort it out .... but as far as I can see it is the right family.
Where can I obtain the birth certificate or marriage certificate of William Henry Niblock and/or Millicent Victoria Lewis?
Yes, the blacksmith John Lewis is the right one.
His daughter Millicent is my husband's grandmother and the names Winifred and Ruby rings a bell ....
In the 1851 census John Lewis mother Hannah is mentioned. At that time she was 60 years old. That means she was born around 1791.
I tried to...
