« on: Monday 04 June 18 14:43 BST (UK)  »
Looking for a birth record that does not appear in the GRO consular records.

I have navigated my way to here

http://earchives.le64.fr/ead.html?id=FRAD064003_IR0002#!{%22content%22:[%22FRAD064003_IR0002_e0040845%22,false,%22%22]}

and down the list on the left to here for Biarritz

Naissances, mariages, décès (NMD)
Dates extrêmes   1793-1902

and have been scrolling through images

but also found a broken link on familysearch to a search facility.

https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/725348?availability=Family%20History%20Library

My schoolgirl french is completely inadequate for this so I don't even know if I'm in the right place.

Any pointers to a search facility or suggestions other than looking through all the images would be welcome.

Yorkshire (West Riding) / Why move to Coventry?
« on: Friday 26 January 18 11:10 GMT (UK)  »
I'm looking into the Hammert0n family who for generations are Yorkshire based but then suddenly between the late 1760's and 1790's seem to up-sticks and move to Coventry.

Are there any known socio-economic reasons known for this?

Did the parishes of Coventry request labour from Yorkshire to fill gaps as happened in WW1 for munitions?

I've looked at canals and these aren't in the right place.

Is a railway route a factor?

Emley, their last known residence, is I'm led to believe agricultural, but could the textile industry have influenced this move, although ribbon-weaving in Coventry came along a bit later.

I'm open to suggestions from those with more local knowledge.

Yorkshire (West Riding) / Baptism look-up please, Emley circa 1763
« on: Thursday 25 January 18 18:42 GMT (UK)  »
Now I know how we all love multiple duplicated online trees, until you find a piece of information and for whatever reason, you can't verify it.

So I'm led to believe Stephen Hammert0n was baptised sometime in May 1763, various dates are given on these trees but I can't find an entry in the IGI, batch p00760-1, or Ancestry and FindMyPast transcriptions.

His parents should be J0hn & Mary.

I would be grateful fi someone could have a rummage around and see what turns up that is verifiable.

Thanks.
