    Ancestry searches at the library

    Ben, I am 100% with you. I don't like ancestry making money off of my research when I cannot access other trees unless I pay for a subscription. That said, I did temporarily pay for 1 month world because I am at a point where I need access to info that I cannot get for free and my library...

    Where to look for marriages from Tottenham, Middlesex

    Yes, I did see the children for Christopher and Ann. As well as burials for many of the children which died in infancy. That's why I was hoping to find a marriage record for them in the same area, but cannot. I was hoping it would be easy and they'd be in same area. :2fun: I did just find a...

    Where to look for marriages from Tottenham, Middlesex

    I don't think that is likely to be them, but I will definitely check and see if I can rule them out. I have a death certificate of one of their children from May 1770 and she was 16 when she died. That would put her birth around 1754, possibly 1753. I did find a Sarah Buckel that was...

    Where to look for marriages from Tottenham, Middlesex

    I am trying to find out where my relatives were married, Christopher Buckel and Ann?. I know they were from Tottenham, would they have married in London? This would have been in the 1750's. The christenings and burials of their children were all in All Hallows, Tottenham. It's driving me...

    1861 Census look up please

    I don't believe this would be my Henry. The birthdate I have for him is Mar 25,1852. The date should be fairly correct. Possible a few years out, but not likely more than that. I haven't been able to find his birth registration, but the birthdate I have is from later census records and death...

    Thomas Phillips and Sophia Bowden - Middlesex

    Thank you Valerie. Thomas' hometown helps. I was hoping that there would be some unique first name on the witness that would help pinpoint which Bowden family Sophia belonged to, but of course it has to be Ann. :2fun: It's not such an easy task tracing maternal family lines. Sophia would be...

    1861 Census look up please

    I am looking for Henry James White born 1852 in Exeter, Devon. I believe he would have been living in Devonshire at the time. He was known as Harry in his later years. His father was Henry John White, but was known as John. I'm not sure if he was born in the County or not. I am looking for...

    Sparklingtechie, The Phillips in both my and my husband's family did not immigrate to Canada. I haven't researched them very much, only a couple generations back since from the branch off in the early 1800's. It's something I've just been delving into recently. My husband's line is from...

    Photos - Ontario, Canada archives

    I came across this site a while back while looking into my husband's family history. I actually found quite a few images of one of his relatives who was a Reverend. http://images.ourontario.ca/ It contains a vast array of images (photos, newspaper notices, government doc) from Ontario, Canada...

    Canadian Census

    Just a word of advice about the Canadian census records. I helped transcribe some of the records and there were many pages that were in awful condition. In my experience the 1911 census was far worse than the 1901. If you don't find who you are looking for by name, try the area they are from...

    I am looking for a little more information about Thomas Phillips and Sophia Bowden who married on November 1, 1818 at St. John, Hackney, Middlesex. The birth year estimates I have are Thomas born 1798 and Sophia born 1796. I believe both were born in the County. I was wondering if any one had...
