Sorry, crossed with you there.  Sounds an amazing trip though.  I loved Italy when we were there and we worked with many Italians in Swotzerland..

Enjoy the trip  Come back and tell us about it!

Best wishes

Hi Both

Ironically I replied to this before when I was in Cumbria  We used to go regularly to the ice cream parlours and the Peace Family run by the Italians  However now I'm down in Lancashire where my family are from 

However my other grandparents were in Birkenhead and on our visits we used to cross the Mersey on the ferry and go up to Hilton Street, now redeveloped but we used to go for ice cream cones to a tiny ice cream shop on a corner near there and I'm sure they were Italian.  It was near the park.

Do you think it was one of yours?

Intriguing, though there was a lot of contact between Mersey side and cumbria because much of the transport was by sea and people went in and out of both ports.

Hi Everyone from over in UK

This is a big ask on the off chance.

We're having a bit of a reunion this weekend and I've tried to do a bit more of the researh I did for my friend  I was so pleased to find an obituary and put it in my discoveries on Ancestry only to find out that two days later the site has closed down!

Sister Mary Reansbury from Brantford became the head of her order or mother house and dies about 2003 Daily Times Obituary Scarborough Ontario.  It was a full copy not just an index  I just didnt have a printer at the moment I found it.

There was a lovely long piece on an obituary site but it's gone  I'd love to findit for her.  Does anyone know another way of getting it even if I have to pay to download?

Thanks for reading

Best wishes

Europe / Re: German Ancestors

Hi Sarah
Just going to have another go at my German side.

Looks exactly as you say  The FS intrigued me too.  I expected BS for British subject or else German subject but I can only think of French subject or Franzorsische probably wrongly spelt.

Have you got census for any other years?  We have a French born lady - we think! - and on other census I found more details - though we still have a mystery!

I did find one entry for the German side onfamilysearch but need to find out about certificates.

Good luck!

Thank you for getting back
I did quite a bit of research in the Borders/Dumfries area when I was up north and there are hoards of Carruthers though not all dealers and merchants!

Ps Have you tried Malcolm Bull's Yorkshire companion?  Fascinating detail including Joseph Shaw etc


Just typed this and lost it.

George was a builder son of Jonathan a silk dyer

Witnesses were Thomas and William Bowden and Joseph Shaw a cornmiller

The mill and other businesses were near Ripponden  There was much business over the hills to Yorkshire.  Have you looked for connections over there?

Best wishes

September 1869  George Bowden married Eliza Showler  8e 41

Many of these are on line  I'll look

Best wishes
