Canada / Acadia Records
« on: Sunday 18 February 18 14:50 GMT (UK)  »
Does anyone understand the Acadia records?  I can't quite figure out the locations.  I've got the attached baptism for John Busterd/Buster 4 Jun 1854 in Woodstock (Paroisse), Acadie (Nova Scotia and New Brunswick) who I believe is the first child of John Busterd/Buster and Margaret O'Hara.  I can't seem to find the marriage record for the parents.

Looking for the family of John Gallagher in this census.  Son, William, (parents John Gallagher and Eliza O'Hara) was baptized 18 Nov 1849 in Hawick, Roxburghshire, Scotland (born 4 Nov 1849 in Kelso).  I have the baptism from

The family is in Hartlepool, England by 1852 but I am having trouble locating them anywhere in 1851.

The Common Room / Frazier - Canada to New York
« on: Friday 09 February 18 02:08 GMT (UK)  »
Looking for the baptism of James Frazier (probably Catholic but not positive) and the marriage of his parents and the family's immigration to the US.  Father born in Canada.  There is some indication from death certificates of James' siblings that their father was born in the Toronto, Canada area.  I've been able to confirm nothing prior to James's marriage to Mary Bustard in Amsterdam, New York 29 Nov 1883.  James may have been naturalized in 1881 through his father according to the 1925 New York State Census.

Durham Lookup Requests / Hartlepool/1851 Census/Gallaghers

Good morning, all!  I have been researching the Gallagher family for quite some time.  They started in Ireland (somewhere) - John Gallagher and Elizabeth O'Hara - had a son, John, around 1842, had another son, William, in Kelso, Roxburghshire, Scotland in 1849 and baptized him in Hawick, Roxburghshire, Scotland that same year.  By 1852 they are in Hartlepool and have their daughter, Elizabeth.  I'm looking to see if they are on the 1851 census in Hartlepool.  I can't seem to find them anywhere.

They are definitely in Hartlepool from 1861 forward.  The 1871 Hartlepool census indicates that the son, John born in 1842, was born in Terone Caven, Ireland.
