Because I think there is a chance that my point might get a little lost in explanation – my questions are as follows: Is my supposition that there is a relationship between my Elizabeth Saltonstall and the American Saltonstalls (based on some DNA results) seem reasonable? [Does that suggest that the family tradition is correct?] Is attempting to make the link between them probably impossible? The scenario: My 5x great grandmother is Elizabeth Saltonstall. Her death...

My father was drafted towards the end of World War 2 after he turned 18. I have his service record which I found when clearing out my parents' house. He joined the RAF on 28th Dec 1942 and was posted to the Gold Coast in Africa. He was discharged from the RAF on 30th June 1945 as his services were no longer required. But instead of being sent home he was transferred to the Navy the following day and served until 28th Apr 1946. I initially though this RN period was National Service, since the...

Hi, I am looking for help in finding a marriage about 1769. The baptismal records for St Marys, Portsea, Hants, record the baptisms for 7 children of Josiah Wadge (name variants !) from Frb 1770 to Mar 1780, mother recorded as Sarah in some of these. In December, Josiah - described as a widower aged 42 - married Sarah Levinstone/Livingstone at the same church. I know from other legal records that Josiah was born in Callington, Cornwall in 1768. I have been unable, despite extensive & repeated... Missing data ..read more

Hi everyone. I would like some advice on how to find proof (or otherwise) that my husband has a connection to Arthur Worsley, the famous ventriloquist. A comment made by my father-in-law years ago has always intrigued me. "'E favours the Worsleys" was his quote and right enough, in his younger days, my hubby James does have the same features as Arthur Worsley and also a musical career. I cannot find any connection in his aunts, uncles, immediate cousins or even a generation further back.... Searching from hearsay ..read more

Several years ago, I discovered a first cousin of my great-grandfather who popped up in the 1911 Canadian census in Carrot River, Saskatchewan. He was one of four in that generation to cross the Atlantic (my great-grandfather emigrated to Vermont in 1903, his older brother to New Brunswick in 1912, and a third cousin went to Ontario, and later migrated down in to New York). Recently, I read A Place Called Winter, by Patrick Gale. The author's great-grandfather had, as a result of some... Settlement of Canadian Prairies 1910s ..read more

Please can anyone help with this "relation to head of household" from the 1851 census for William Kirkbride aged 4. He was illegitimate and is here living with the Tweddle(Tweedle) family in Farlam, Cumberland. FMP have not attempted to transcribe this field while Ancestry have "Nurse Child". I think the "Child" is correct but I'm not convinced about "Nurse". View attachment 2461 ..read more

How to find the maiden name of a woman pre 1837 in England?

Hi Everyone, I'm trying to trace ancestors of a family who emigrated from Sussex to Australia in 1838. Particularly the husbands parents. I can't find a parish record of his birth/baptism to see parents names. Immigration records do give a Mother's name but it is not the same surname as the son who emmigrated. One possibility is that the Mother was widowed & remarried before her son emmigrated & so her surname would be different. Another is that her son was born after his Mother was widowed...

I have used FTA to create a basic tree which it has done very well however where there is an empty death event in my original tree FTA has inserted before 23 MAR 2024 and if there is no death event UNKNOWN is inserted. Is there a setting so that I can change the way FTA handles an empty death event or is there a way that FTA will update the entry to the recommended date ("Can be updated to" column in Loose Deaths report)? There are quite a lot of these so to change them manually would be very... updating death dates ..read more
