    Why would a Matron register a birth 3 months later?

    I have been digging a bit further and found the parents living together with the child in question in the 1939 - the father is listed as a widow, the mother has a totally different surname (her real one) to the one given on the birth cert and is listed as married (not to the father). There is...

    Why would a Matron register a birth 3 months later?

    I have received a birth cert for someone I'm looking into, and was surprised that the birth was in December, but the registration didn't occur until three months later and was by a Matron from the hospital the baby was born in. Was it common for a Matron to do this - if so in what situation...

    Byrne family in South Africa

    Sharls, any information would be helpful, thank you! I've not had time to keep digging on it so would be nice to hear what happened to them all as the news over here was 'never heard from again', but how true that was I don't know!

    Ronald Prior

    Hi, am looking at my mother-in-law's family. In the 1939 reg I've found her family household with her father and grandparents and her fathers siblings appears to include a Ronald Prior born 13th (I think) May 1921 and as the parents were both Prior in surname, I did indeed find a Ronald Prior...

    Am trying to trace a Charles Kay who was married to an Edith Ann Wyman (born approx. 1869). They married in 1900 in Cardiff and had two sons Harry and Charles. In the 1911 Census Edith is listed as 'husband away' so not sure if he's gone for good or just off visiting somewhere. Any info on him...

    K R Kemp

    I am trying to help someone find their birth mother - they thought my aunt may have been the right lady, but I don't think it adds up. What they have is information from an immigration document from England to Canada - the child went with both parents but the mother left and was never heard from...

    My boyfriend's mum is curious about her family history so as I'm laid up ill I thought I'd spend some time on it - she tells me that she was always told that her fathers side adopted the surname St Julien and that their name before this was Eberhart or Aberhart (not sure of exact spellings)...

    Witchcraft in Eastend in Scotland?!

    My paternal grandmother's family were Scottish and in our family documents we have an old 'scroll' in a little wooden tube with some very hard to decipher writing - which appears to be the efforts of someone to write down the ancestry of the family and one entry says - "Third descent or second...

    What's the best way of finding out the military records for someone? I have found in my old family photos several photos which were obviously taken in India, around 1914 and include the lamb symbol and the phrase 'Queen's' - and I think I recognise one of the soldiers in the photos to be my...
