The Common Room / Re: wishing for ancestors who had imagination when naming children

I know the feeling Boo.

I have a string of George Whites going down through I think six generations.  I therefore had to be careful to make sure I knew which George I was working on.  This was all down the eldest son line.

White is a bad enough surname to work with without having a load with the same first name.   :o

Which parish is St.Winifred's in?  Glamorganshire is quite a big county I believe.

Hmm, interesting.........

No 59 High Street, East Ham, West Ham in the 1911 census.

If someone knows how to find the enumerators schedule this can be checked to see if No 59 was occupied or not.

I think this may be Caroline's birth registration:-

SMITH, CAROLINE       TOBIN     
GRO Reference: 1900  D Quarter in WEST HAM  Volume 04A  Page 281

The family are living in the West Ham registration district in 1901.

Hhmm, maybe that isn't the right one.  Can't find any Smith/Tobin births that fit the children listed in the 1901.

Nothing for the 1911 either.

Knowing the number of the property would be helpful.  Do I assume that the property is in Stephen Street?

I've checked the 1901 census and there is no farrier or blacksmith listed for Stephen Street or Giffarde/Guffarde Street.

Perhaps the Brecon local history society could help?

The Common Room / Re: 1939 Register
« on: Thursday 13 September 18 18:50 BST (UK)  »
May I suggest that you do as Nanny Jan said in her reply#20?

Write to Find My Past, explain that you have a death certificate for your grandfather but you can't find him on the 1939 Register.  Can they help?  If you can give them any idea of where he may have been living that would be helpful.

Mention the names of his foster parents as that may help.  You never know, he may have been registered under his foster parents surname.

If he didn't join the Navy until after the 1939 Register was taken, then, in theory, he should be on there.
