School Admission registers.

I think that school admission registers are a next step in building up a picture of our ancestors lives.

As you know I have been absent for a couple of days but I have been away on a genealogy trip. My great grandmother Catherine Isabella Coombs life is now well documented by me.

I have been trawling through school registers of the Islington area of London where she lived as a child. I then found her admission registers at Winchester Street School, Islington, London. They said:-

Coombs, Catherine, admitted 20.3.1893, of 90 Southampton Street, Islington, Father William T Coombs, a Litho Printer, Born 22/9/1889, Discharged 29/1/1897 to Girls School.

Amazing hey?
