Hi All,
No I havn"t joined my dear departed ancestors, or eloped with Paxo(Worse Luck) I have just had to give myself a break as I was going round in circles and meeting myself coming back:confused: (Not a Pretty Sight)
Anyway I feel refreshed and ready to go again, and try and knock down a few more Brick Walls:eek:
I have bought anoth 5 various ertificates which have given me a bit more info. I didn"t know anything about my GGGrandad not even his name, but I have bought a Marriage Cert. for my GGUncle and according to that, his name was Michael Meledy and he was a Soldier (He was also Deceased by 1896) My GGGran Elizabeth was born in Calcutta India in 1866, has anyone any idea how I can find out which Regiments were serving there then? I honestly have no idea where to start:confused:It really is becoming quite spooky:eek: this connection between Michaels and soldiers in my family.As I have mentioned before, I called my son Michael and he served with the Paras , and of course then I knew nothing about my Relies:eek:
Any suggestions on how to take another brick out of this particular wall would be greatly appreciated.
Happy Hunting All
Luv Littlemo ;)

Hi Ben & Steve,
Good to hear from you both again. Might have known you would have something to say on the Paxo front Steve:biggrin: Must admit though, I"m still as besotted as ever, still playing the tape of "The Victorians" Ah me! what a sad life I do lead:eek:
Luv Mo

Not at all Mo, if he puts a smile on ya face, then so be it.
I like him for what he is, a no nonsense yorkshire lad. I especially liked his stint on WDYTYA.:)
So I guess by your measure I'm a saddo as well. Long live saddo's.:2fun: :2fun:

Hi julie, I"ve joined FIBIS, as it seems quite good for a £15 a year membership, so if I manage to find out any more about the Meledys I will let you know. Thanks:)
