Technical Help / MSILPerseus.98526 - Trojan?
« on: Sunday 07 January 18 02:48 GMT (UK)  »
My virus scanner has identified the above but has not been able to remove it. 

I've googled and found a site telling me how to remove it, but it involves playing around in the registry, which I don't think I feel confident enough to do.   

Can anyone please advise how bad this is, and whether there is another way to remove it?


Europe / Maria Smith, British Subject born Hesse Cassel c1818, lived in Glamorgan
« on: Thursday 04 January 18 18:13 GMT (UK)  »
I've exhausted every avenue I can think of in searching for Maria's family so am posting this in the hope that someone might have some fresh ideas.

In 1842 Maria Smith married Thomas Morgan in Aberdare, Glamorgan.  She was 23 24 and her father was given as Henry Smith, Mason.  Both made their mark, and the witnesses were Morgan Thomas, George Simpson & Richard Edwards.

Maria's address at marriage was Aberdare Village, but in 1841 she appears to be living in Merthyr Tydfil with John & Jane Jones. 

Maria's birth year varies wildly throughout the 1851-1901 census, but with the exception of 1881 her birth place is consistent as Hesse Cassel or Germany.

I have not been able to find any trace of Henry Smith, mason, but had assumed - perhaps wrongly - that Maria's status as a British Subject means he was British.  The 1891 census notes that she speaks both Welsh & English whereas her husband speaks only Welsh.

I've tried researching why a British stonemason would be in Hesse around the 1810-1820, but have again drawn a blank. Perhaps he was German after all, and her citizenship was through her husband?

Any thoughts, ideas or suggestions gladly received!

The Common Room / Valid marriage?
« on: Sunday 17 December 17 01:58 GMT (UK)  »
I know I should know the answer to this but I'm beginning to doubt myself. 

Charles married wife 1 in 1903 but abandoned her 2-years later. 

In 1908 he married wife 2.  Wife 1 was still alive but died 3-months later.  Her will details Charles abandonment of her & their children but does not mention a divorce. 

In 1915 wife 2 remarries claiming Charles is dead.

In 1917 Charles marries wife 3.

Assuming there was no divorce from wife 1, am I right in thinking that marriage 3 was valid but marriage 2 was not?  This was in America (Ohio) if that makes any difference.

United States of America / 1918 Ohio Marriage Record 'corrected'
« on: Thursday 07 December 17 16:51 GMT (UK)  »
In 1918 Lloyd H Nunamaker married Helen Thomson in Cuyahoga, Ohio.  The marriage entry has a hand-written note at the side, which I read as "Oct 11 1918 N(?) Court, Record ordered corrected - name of Lloyd H Nunamaker to Lloyd H Flick".

The 1900 census shows him as Lloyd H Nunamaker aged 4, and there is a marriage on 6 Sep 1895 between Howard Nunamaker & Rose Stoerkel.

On 8 Nov 1905, Rose Nunamaker married Charles H Flick, and Lloyd is with them in the 1910 census as LLoyd H Flick.   

In 1914 - as Nunamaker - he married Ethel Schwab, apparently divorcing in 1917. 

As the only time he is referred to as Flick is in the 1910 census I'm mystified as to why the 1918 marriage would require 'correcting'.  Any ideas?

US Completed Requests / Jane Arline Davies born Cleveland Ohio 1913
« on: Sunday 26 November 17 18:15 GMT (UK)  »
On 21 July 1932 Jane Arline Davies married Charles M Hunt at Ripley, Chatauqua, New York. 

Jane was born 5 Aug 1913 in Cleveland, Ohio to Marie [Maria] Morgan & Llewelyn Davies, both born Wales. 
Charles was born 5 Jun 1911 in Cleveland, Ohio to Anna Lazna & Charles Hunt, both born in the US.

On 25 Jan 1938 Charles M Hunt married Betty Salata in Columbiana County, Ohio.  His parents and DoB are the same as in 1932 but he claims this is his first marriage.

Can anyone trace Jane after 1932?   The only possible clues I have are that on Llewelyn Davies 1953 Death Certificate the informant is Jane King (relationship not stated) and that Jane's three half-sisters all died in Sun City, Arizona between 1972 & 1994.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Help with some medical notes
« on: Tuesday 21 November 17 03:57 GMT (UK)  »
I recently discovered that a GG Uncle died in an asylum aged 14, the cause of death being Chronic Hydrocephalus.  I've managed to decipher most of the notes - which were really quite awful, poor lad - but would appreciate some help with these last few bits if anyone can help.

Glamorganshire / Morgan Davies 'somewhere' in Merthyr Tydfil 1849
« on: Saturday 11 November 17 02:24 GMT (UK)  »
Can anyone make sense of the address of the informant on this 1849 death certificate please? 

The deceased is Gwenllian Davies, 68, of Village, Aberdare, widow of Thomas Davies, Collier.  I think Thomas may have died in March 1841.

I'm trying to trace the family of James Davis/Davies who died aged 35 in February the same year and think this may be his mother, which potentially could make Morgan Davies a brother or uncle to James - if only I could locate him!
