Canada Lookup Request / Application for a Canadian death cert
« on: Friday 04 May 18 14:46 BST (UK)  »

I have found the death dates for 3 of my friends relatives who were born and died in Canada. She wants to apply for copies of their death certs so could somebody advise the procedure please?

Details as follows:

Thelma May Lytle (nee Payne) died on April 2, 1990. She was buried in Woodlawn Cemetery in Saskatoon

Herbert Elmer Lytle died on December 21, 1986. He was buried in Woodlawn Cemetery in Saskatoon

Stanley Parker Payne died in Langley, British Columbia, on June 4, 2011

Cork / Birth/Bapt for Margaret Gertrude Regan or O'Regan born 27.4.1872 Passage West
« on: Tuesday 07 November 17 00:14 GMT (UK)  »

My husbands maternal grandmother's birthdate has just been found on the 1939 register - 27.4.1872.

She married James Leonard Thompson in February 1898 as Maggie Gertrude Regan - father Patrick occ farmer (deceased).  1901 entry shows her as Maggie G

1911 -  birthplace is Passage West County Cork and she is Margaret

1939 register - Margaret      1957 death - Margaret

My husband says she was O'Regan but dropped the O' when she came to England.  There is no proof of this.

The family were Roman Catholic but I cannot match her birthdate to any baptisms online.

Can any baptism be found?  If not - is it possible to pay the Irish GRO for a search of birth registrations using the info I have?

FS has a birth entry for a Margaret O Regan in Cork 1872 but no quarter is shown and I don't know whether the O is actually a middle name or a mistranscription


This photo may be my paternal grandfather born 1877 who was a marine fireman and died 1919


It may be his son (my uncle) born 1903 died 1966 who served in India in the 1940's but I have no details of his regiment etc

Armed Forces / Who would benefit from these war books/photos
« on: Saturday 15 April 17 22:41 BST (UK)  »
A friend was recently widowed and in conversation she mentioned that her husband had a number of albums of photos he had taken of ?? war graves around the country.  He also had a collection of books "all things war" as she put it.

She travelled a lot for her work and he accompanied her.  He would then go off to whatever cemetery was in the area and spend time taking photos. 

She doesn't know what to do with the albums/books but has no desire to keep them as they have no interest for her.

I haven't actually seen any of the albums or books so am unsure of the exact nature of the photos but as his interest was in the war - I am pretty sure the photos would only be of war graves

If anybody has any ideas or interest - could you pm me and I will ask her for further details

United States of America / Sarah Carlin b 1866 Liverpool England
« on: Tuesday 27 September 16 01:27 BST (UK)  »
Can anybody find any info about this ancestor in the USA (possibly Kentucky)

Sarah Carlin (no  middle name) was born 22.6.1866 in Liverpool - her parents Matthew & Jane (nee King) both born Ireland were my great grandparents.   

I have her up to the 1881 census then nothing.  Over the years I have checked all possible marriages and deaths between 1881-1891 and afterwards without success.

Back in 2001 I was contacted by an American lady from Kentucky  who seemed to be connected to this branch of the family and told me that Sarah and her married sister Martha plus Martha's daughter had emigrated to the USA. 

Sarah allegedly married a Cherokee Indian and Martha  "shacked up" with another man who may have been English and whose surname was “Smith”.  She also gave me a great deal of info about Martha’s daughter “Ellen”.  When I tried to contact her again a couple of years ago, her email address was no longer valid.

Martha Ann Carlin only married in 1900 to James Michael McDonald. In 1911 is living with another of her sisters and shown as having no children.  Martha died in 1915 so I now have doubts about the info given about Sarah.

Sarah’s eldest brother William J (not known what the J stands for)  b 1853 Ireland disappears after the 1871 census and is rumoured to have emigrated to the USA but I have not found anything to support that. 

Her brother in law William Toft went to Philadelphia and died there on 16.9.1886 from Typhoid.  His wife had given birth in England on 10.8.1886 so it’s possible there is a USA connection with Sarah & William.

Technical Help / Ancestry & Google problems on AOL
« on: Saturday 23 January 16 23:48 GMT (UK)  »

I thought these problems may correct themselves so have held on in blind hope but they are now getting to be a nuisance.  Can anybody offer any help/advice to get them working properly?


For a few weeks now, when I put a question into Google and click on the search icon - nothing happens.  I then have to right click on my mouse and select reload.  All the hits appear but the "question box" disappears. 

I can't just right click on reload at the outset as it flips me back to the question box and deletes what I had put there.   I have to go through the usual search process first or it won't work at all

If I use Google via Firefox - no problem


For the past week I have been unable to get the search page up on anything on Ancestry.  I have everything stored as "Quick Links" on Ancestry so just click on the link but now I get a "Source Information" page instead of the input page

If I access Ancestry from Firefox - no problem

These are the only 2 sites I am having problems with - everything else works as normal
