Ready For Blowing a Fuse!!!!!


Well-known member
Hi Everyone,
Iv"e been on various websites (National Archives,Forces Genealogy etc.)but I still cant find a service rcord for my G Grandfather Michael Donnelly.
All I have is what I got from the 1871 Census which said he was Age 19, born in Prescot Lancs. in 1851(June) & he was serving with the 47thLancashire Regiment (Regiment of Foot)as a Private at Fulwood Barracks in Preston.
Has anyone any idea PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE How I can get further with this before I go completely Bananas!
Funnily enough out of all the Ancestors I"ve found Michael is the one I"ve grown most fond of.(Weird or what?) Probably because I had called my son Michael before I even knew I had a GGrandad with the sa
me name.Please someone help restore my sanity!! Best Wishes Littlemoxx
