I'm beginning to conduct a one name study and want to put together a website to contain all of my research. I use Blogger and planned on writing a blog there to track the research, but I need more flexibility to produce the kind of website I want.
I have some basic website building knowledge so...
Difficult to read occupation - No. 2
Hi, thought I might as well edit this post with a new occupation that I can't read! I've attached the image.
Someone else on the page seems to also be a farmer but underneath it says 'boy in door'. Mine says '?? door labourer'
Any ideas what it means?
I was just wondering if anyone could find a Hannah Jane Carr in the 1911 census? I can see her name in Bridlington on the 1911 census site, but I can't find the right family on Ancestry :( Maybe she's visiting someone whose name isn't Carr?
I have just received a copy of the probate (I assume).
It calls the deceased 'intestate' so I was wondering what that meant?
Also, his father in law and brother in law are listed as sureties - what does that mean as well?
I did a quick forum search but I appear to be the only one confused :)
I've just discovered my great grandfather had a brother that may have been born after their father died. I've ordered his birth certificate but just wondering if someone could locate him in 1911?
Unfortunately it would appear after the death of John the family got split up, with the mother in...
I'm trying to find Harriet Pickup in the 1891 census and I have come across a Hornet Pickup (as translated by anc..)and just want to see if anyone else agrees with my assumption this must be Harriet. The head of the household is almost certainly her brother, but I just want to make sure!
Just been searching the Tyne and Wear archive online and discovered lots of documents relating to Elders Walker & Co Ltd, paint, varnish and colour manufacturers and glass merchants.
John's brother is a paint manufacturer, and it's been thought we had a link to that company, but today they only...
Just got my ancestors death certificate from 1904 (aged 31, grrr pneumonia!) and it states he was secretary to a public company.
I know today you have to name your secretary's at Companies House - just wondering if that database is searchable?
Hmm, I hadn't thought of that. Do you know if there's any way to find out if he did go into care?
Regarding Teresa's family, her father is listed as Dick Wiseman on her marriage certificate, which is completely different to John... I'll see if the same name appears on the birth certificate.
Is that the 1901 census?
I've found that family group which I am assuming to be the correct one, but John Redvers and mother disappear in 1911...
Teresa isn't to be found in the 1901 census either. Maybe I'm just related to a bunch of shifty people avoiding the census, which knowing my...
