Family History Beginners Board / Lost at sea
« on: Tuesday 06 October 09 15:22 BST (UK)  »
Would anyone know where best to start looking for details of someone who was lost at sea some time in the late 1920s or early 1930s? My uncle, Eric Reginald Brooks, disappeared somewhere in the South China Seas around this time. He wasn't in the navy so there won't be any naval records to search. I think he worked in Shanghai at the time.

Yorkshire (West Riding) / Dawson family, Hartley Brook, Ecclesfield, Sheffield

I'm researching the Dawson family of Hartley Brook, Ecclesfield.
Mum and dad were Elizabeth Carr (b. 1851, Rawmarsh) and John Dawson (b. 1845, Ecclesfield, d. 1910). Elizabeth and John were married at Mount Pleasant Methodist Chapel, Ecclesfield, in 1872.
Their children were Mary (b. 1873), Annie (b. 1876), Emma (b. 1878, married Thomas Morris, 1916), Agnes (b. 1880, married Benjamin Brooks 1909, d. 1953 in London), John (b. 1883, married Lilly Tingle), Joseph (b. 1886, married Ethel), Thomas (b. 1888), and Kenneth (b. 1892).
All were born in Ecclesfield. The family mostly worked as file cutters.
I would love to hear from anyone connected with this family.
