Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Re: Jewish DNA
« on: Yesterday at 20:03 »
A family story was that my maternal gt.grandfather was a Russian Jew. One of my distant cousins, who is researching a different line, organised a DNA test for me. My result showed 6% Ashkenazi which would fit with the family story.  However as he 'married out' ....well lived with my gt.grandma and they had 10 children....there was no marriage certificate and I suspect his name on the birth certs and his own death cert was not the one he started life with. So no surname to work with.  ::)

For various Dorset records; not just PRs and census:

Scroll through the home page to see a list of other counties with a similar scheme.

The registration in Bradford shows the surname of the mother to be Kennedy, which could fit with your possibility of an 'out of wedlock' birth with the mother moving away from her area for the birth.

My gt. uncle (born 1920), who died in 1953, was still blacked out until I emailed a copy of his death certificate a few weeks ago. My mother, who died in 2002 (born 1921), was available to see from the day the Register went live.   Still haven't been able to work that out!

I understood that the 'number takers' were noting who had voted and not how they voted; this was to prevent them being visited later in the day to be reminded that it was time to go out and vote.

Not sure if this helps but I found my gt.grandfather, followed by one of his sons on the same film. Same first name but different regiments. Both sets of papers showed slight damage from the fire...slightly charred edges etc.

I assume they were filmed in the order they were filed.

Both her birth and death registrations are on FreeBMD.
