    Hello Allie - welcome - I was very interested to see your introductory post as I am currently planning a help sheet for people in your position, but I have no personal experience of this. I'm not sufficiently expert to style myself a family history 'teacher', but I work with (as opposed to...

    welcome Hi Karen - have you joined your local family history society? I think you'd find them very helpful and useful. The person that has collected the most research for my husband's family roots (in Essex) is Australian and has done nearly all her reasearch from there - and also my local...

    Non workhouse paupers

    That sounds a likely explanation - this is the vale of Evesham, a fruit & veg growing area, so a lot of agricultural work would I suppose be seasonal. Many thanks for taking the time to contribute 'Duckweed' ! Joy

    Royal Flying Corps - Wireless Detachment

    Thanks for all your help Julie - I have Googled many times but with one difference: I only recently looked carefully on the scroll photograph and took heed of the unit's proper name - I think I've always thought and referred to them as the 'Signals' unit. Your pointers have enabled me to find...

    Royal Flying Corps - Wireless Detachment

    Hi Julie - this looks facinating - thanks so much for the link - it will be my bed time reading tonight! I can't tell from the link where you found this - was it Leeds, The Liddle Collection? This is the only reference I've ever found but didn't think anything was available online. It's on...

    Non workhouse paupers

    Hi Julie - for some reason I can't see your post to this thread, as per the email? However, thanks for the workhouse link - but this family were not in a union workhouse, but listed in the census along with other residents in the village. This is why I wondered why they were classified as...

    Visititation from God

    As there was an inquest - was the choroner the informant on the death cert? Apparently, because they were not medically qualified in those days, this was the cause of death recorded by choroners, when they found that someone died of natural causes. (YFT magazine, no. 56). Sorry, but looks...

    Royal Flying Corps - Wireless Detachment

    My father was a member of this unit serving at Ypres. I have a postcard photo of seven other 'mates' from the unit, but only have signatures on the reverse to go by. I think the names are: WARD, WILEY, WILLIAMS, WILDSMITH, WARTON or WESTON, WESTROM, WILDING (se attached). I also have a...

    Non workhouse paupers

    I have found an entry whilst browsing the 1851 census for Salford Priors, Warks, where the occupation is given as 'Pauper' and 'Paupers wife' (James & Rachel Wallace & family Emma, Enoch, Ellen & George) - this is not connected to my own research but I wondered if this would just mean that they...
