Durham / Hepplewhite
« on: Monday 20 November 06 13:13 GMT (UK)  »
As often happens a new family name has shown up in my research.

New interest in the Hepplewhite name of a man showing up on NSW, Australia marriage certificate in 1901.

Known facts: William Hepplewhite seaman born about 1870, stating he was born in Shields England.

Any other interest out there?

London & Middlesex Completed Lookup Requests / Any Bury, Farmer, Weal, Skellet interest?
« on: Saturday 30 September 06 13:24 BST (UK)  »
Returning to  research another little known side of my family.  The connection is a Mary Ann Farmer( b 1860 Stepney London) who married a John Bury( b 1860 London, Middlesex) in 1883.

Mary Ann's parents were William Farmer and Mary Ann Weal/ Wheel. I am not sure about Johns. Some leads about  a Robert and Elizabeth, but this is not verified.

Does anybody know of these interest?

Devon / WWI aussie soldier in Exeter Hospital
« on: Friday 15 September 06 12:39 BST (UK)  »
Interested in finding out about any resources, history, details, past records of No 3 Exeter Hospital.

Grandfather was patient there while injured during WW1.  Though he returned to Aus after war he did not return to family and no record of him.  Family folklore of perhaps return to England.

Interested in any advice?

Warwickshire / which cemetry for for 1871 burial
« on: Wednesday 19 July 06 09:38 BST (UK)  »
Trying to track down the one last burial site of family being researched.

Laura Ann Cooper born 5/11/1869 at Birmingham.
She died on 29/6/1871.  Her death certificate shows she died at Clifton Road Aston Manor and the cause of death was croup ( i think, writing is difficult to read)

the family has a history of being married, baptized in Church of England churches. 

How do I find out which church to investigate to find out burial place? Is there a listing available anywhere? Do I contact individual churches with details, but which churches?

Ideas and advice greatly appreciated

Technical Help / wanting to duplicate records on 2 computers
« on: Monday 03 July 06 15:34 BST (UK)  »
Please excuse me if this turns out to be a trivial question that shows my IT ignorance!!!!!!!!

I have purchased Treemaker and loaded it on my homecomputer.  However I often take my laptop away to visit sites, and on holidays etc.  I have just returned from a holiday and had my laptop to catch up on some of my real work.

While visiting the local library I saw they had a great Family History section and was really angry with myself that I had no details on my laptop.  Is there some way I can load Family treemaker onto my laptop and send the completed details to myself.

For all you experienced IT people i am waiting for any ideas.

« on: Monday 03 July 06 15:23 BST (UK)  »
I have extremely limited information about Ann Beard, birth place Wolverhampton who married a Richard Cooper born 29/7/1815.

I believe they married on 6 November 1843 and may have had  children named Ann, Emma and John and Samuel.

Interested in advice of how to go about verifing details and finding out more about Ann Berda and her family. I ned a diversion from the Coopers( they are driving me nutty)!!!!!!!!!!!
