Can anyone please tell me if Witherslack boarding school has always been for pupils with special needs. I am thinking possibly in the late 1970s to late 1980s. I believe that this school or group of schools are base in the North East and Cumbria areas.
Yes I think this must be them but I would also like to find out about Fanny born 1865. I would also like to trace the Irish roots but I do not know where to start. Do you have any idea of how I can go about it please. I have been told that Irish records are not easy to find.
Sorry that I did not reply last night. I had to log off - my eyes were sore. I am the computer all day at work and I had been on a little too long.
I am at work now so I am unable to look up John's occupation - I will however take a look at it tonight and will let you know.
I have found a death for a Fanny Gargan in 1897. This would make her born around 1865. I think she was my Gt Grandma's Sister. I am having trouble finding her birth. As far as I know it should be in Warwickshire. Can anyone help please.
This is a brilliant idea. I appreciate any help that I can get. I am trying to research Gargan, Shellard and Moore. These sre the names that I am stuck with the most. This is a really friendly helpful site. Thanks to all concerned.

I am trying to find out anything at all about the Prust family in Yorkshire. I am particularly interested in Wortley and Pontefract. I would like to know any connections between the Prusts, Holmes and Richardson families.
Thank you :D
This does look like these people are the ones that I am looking for. Frances Gargan (Fanny) was present at Margarets death in 1894.
The children mentioned on the 1891 census do not appear to be Edward & Margarets. I will have to have a good look around now to find them. I wonder who...
They were all born in Birmingham. It is just weird why they are all missing from the 1891 census. I would just like to fill in the gap. I went to Birmingham
the other day and searched the archives there but I have still drawn a blank.
I did however, find a coroners report for my Gt Grandad...
I am a new member too. I have been researching my family history for about 3 years now. It is very enjoyable. I have found living relatives as well as ancestors and made a very good friend.
Good luck with your research
My Name is Julie and I have just joined today. I love researching my family history. I have been very lucky so far. I have managed to find some living relatives that I did not even know about. My real find has been my second cousin Sandra. I cannot believe how we are so much alike. Not in looks...
