Re: Genealogy

I have a very close friend who is a genealogist. So any problems, come and ask, and I will help. I am VERY good with Church records. Church records are all we have before the census returns.

Oh, I must contribute more to this lovely thread. I just keep forgetting.
Silver Tabby, give me a prompt now and again, please.

Re: Genealogy

I hope to do a bit of digging prior to my UK visit next year.
Might try to visit some of the old 'hunting-grounds.

The little I know is that my father's father was from Inverness and his mother was from Paisley.
My mother's parents were both born in Aus but their parents were from Wexford - but married in Kent.
A proper mish-mash.

But not a convict in sight ......

Re: Genealogy

What is the difference between a Genealogist and a Gynecologist?
One looks up the family tree and the other looks up the family bush.

Re: Genealogy

Was rummaging about on Ancestry.com yesterday - as one does on a wet Sunday - when a photo of my great aunt Patty popped up, Quite startling to see a relative of mine being researched by someone else. Have sent a PM to the owner of the photo - can hardly wait for his/her reply !!

The nice thing about the photo was/is - aunt Patty is with her husband - although I knew Patty I never met him - so it is nice to see his photo.

Re: Genealogy

Back to approx 1500 but need to work on proofs before I try to go back further. Spending time now on "padding out" knowledge of individuals, plenty of carpenters and agricultural workers and one Yeoman so far.

Wow! That must have taken some doing. Fascinating, isn't it?
