Hi All,
In February, I visited Fulwood Army Museum as I found out from the 1871 Census that my GGrandad was stationed there. They very kindly offered to try to find his Army Records, but I have just received a letter from them saying although they have Researched extensively they cannot find anything .
Can anyone please help me with any suggestions as to where I go from here? I"m feeling really disillusioned at the moment :eek: as I have recently found out that I"ve been researching the wrong family of of Ancestors on my Paternal Grandma"s side, now this :(
My GGrandad was called Michael Donnelly, and he was born in Prescot (St Helens) in December 1850 and according to the 1871 Census he was stationed at Fulwood Barracks serving with the 47th Lancashire Regiment (of Foot) or maybe I have the wrong Michael Donnelly, unless I can find some sort of Record I can"t ever find out. Please Please (Pretty Please) some kind soul please help me out, before I give this Ancestry Lark up as a bad job :( this is really how disappointed I"m feeling at the moment. Someone save an Old Lady"s Sanity :eek: PLEASE.
Happy Hunting
Luv Littlemo xx
