Lancashire / Re: Joseph Quilliam circa 1823 Isle of Man
« on: Yesterday at 15:17 »
A little correction ;D That would be Rushen - Castle Rushen is in Castletown.

A baptism in neighbouring Malew parish:
22 September 1822, Joseph, son of John Quilliam and Margaret Moore.

Available on iMuseum.im or FamilySearch.

There's a list here of different regiments and their hackles:

Perhaps a defunct regiment?

The hackle (plume on the bonnet) appears to be distinctive, looking to be white over a darker colour.

That suggests, to me, Highland Light Infantry?
Theirs is white over red.

Technical Help / Re: Deleting a person on Roots Magic family tree

I'm still not sure what exactly "4 M" is?

Can you confirm you have created a person called "4 M"?
If not what on earth are you referring to?

Check any residual links by clicking on the name, and selecting the "Family" tab.
Any children, parents or spouses will show on the screen.

Unlink the person ( I assume "4 M" is a person?) from family.
(Edit, Unlink, Unlink From Parents)

Unlink the person from spouse.
(Edit, Unlink, Unlink From Spouse)

Then Delete the person
(Edit, Delete, Person)

Other Countries / Re: Translation from Icelandic (Very short document)

Sister-in-Law says:

Birth Certificate
Magnus Guðmundsson
Born 7 August 1890. Baptised 17 (s.m. ??? not sure as abit illegible but doesn’t look like a date!)

Parents Guðmundur þorarinsson and Vigdís Magnúsdóttir  couple (husband and wife) in Jöðurgerði (can’t read it properly as it could start with F - it’s probably a placename of a farm or small district. 

Correct according to priest book (not sure how to translate) - perhaps similarly to a registry - name of the parish is Kalfatjörn (means calfpond - havent heard of it) and its in Kjalarnes diocese (not too far from Reykjavik)

Vottur means witness

Afraid I can’t read the bottom line but it’s a date

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Re: Crest
« on: Monday 15 October 18 15:10 BST (UK)  »
In English Heraldry those helmets would likely be Sovereign's helmets; they were in gold, full-faced, with 6 bars.
Lesser nobility had different helmets, either in profile or between profile and full-faced.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Re: Crest
« on: Monday 15 October 18 14:55 BST (UK)  »
For starters, this old Coat-of-Arms has 3 crests!
The crest is the bit which sits on top of a helmet, which in itself sits on top of the shield.

I would describe it as quarterly of 6.
The 3 crests obviously belong to 3 noble families.

I'll dig around and see what I can find.
