My Parents names Keith Arnold and Elsie Forrester, my Dads Parents Samual Arnold (Born 1905) and Hilda Arnold nee Stevens, My G-Grandads parents were William Arnold and Martha Arnold nee Greenhalgh they were married in December 1884 registered at Barton on Irwell all lived Swinton/Pendlebury area of Manchester. My Mums Parents were John Forrester and Elsie Forrester nee Corbett from the same area as above. John Forresters parents were from Scotland all I know is he too was called John Forrester. this is all I know so far. Help Needed.

Hi Shstus

You nearly got it, but your post is in the chat room.

If you select your post, click EDIT, then block in your post and copy, you can then paste it in the correct forum. (save writing it out again)

look at the bottom right of this screen. there is a box marked Forum Jump, click on the arrow, then select the forum you want, in your case Genealogy beginners help. You can then paste your question there.

EDIT - YOU DO NOT NEED TO DO THIS NOW AS P.RISBOY HAS KINDLY MOVED YOUR THREAD TO THE BEGINNERS HELP FORUM
