They arrived at Liverpool on 7th November 1924 from Canada and left Liverpool on 28th November so they were in England for 3 weeks. :)
Silly me  ::) I thought it was the other way round! I blame school holidays!

The Common Room / 1901/1911 address look up

Can anyone help look up an address, i'm struggling on both of those census's. I don't have a name to go with it.
It's 147 Chadderton Rd, Oldham Lancs.
It's listed as an adrdress on the outward & in bound shipping records for a Bartley & Bertram Furey they departed 7/11/1924 returned 28/11/1924 ( Hardly seems long enough?!)

South Africa / Parents of Jessie Alexandria Blackler

Hello all, i wonder if you can help me find any further information regarding Jessie's parents?
Jessie Alexandria Blackler was baptised 30/11/1884 in Cathcart, her parents where John & Maria Blackler. Jessie & the family moved to Bulawayo & here she married into the Huntly family.
From death records i think Maria was born Maria Waiters appx 1848 european Scottish, she died 1905. There is a death record for a Charles John Alexander Blackler at Bulawayo in 1955 but that puts his dob at 1870. So not the dad but not sure if/how he is connected, could be a coincident.

I can see John as a Freemason registered at Lodge 2092 in 1885 previous to that he was at lodge 989.  I am trying to find out when they came to Cathcart & from where, i have a feeling the family originated in Devon England... but have no proof.

Hope you can help.

If you go to pedigree view and start with yourself, Ancestry shows you all 16 of your 2G grandparents.

If you start with your mother, it will give you all 16 of your maternal 3G grandparents, etc.

Either write the names down or perhaps take a screenshot.

Roots Magic also syncs with Ancestry, diplodocus, even with the free version, so also worth considering. Saves all images so that you can view them even if you let your Ancestry subscription lapse, which I presume Family Tree Maker 2017 does as well.
Thank you, i didn't know this.... i shall have a look now.

Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / stupid question on 2 x great grandparents

Hello, so sorry to bother you with what is most likely a stupid question, i just can't figure it out!

So i'm trying to find a dna match, to do that i am cataloguing my 2 & 3 x great grandparents on my mother side only, i presume this would half the 16 for 2x gg & 32 for 3xgg??? Next stupid question all my stuff is on ancestry & they don't have a function that brings up all the  2,3 etc great grand parents, can anyone suggest a print out that i can fill in as i keep loosing people when i try!  ;D
Think i'm muddling myself up more than i'm helping. ! lol
