Gloucestershire Lookup Requests / Cheltenham marriage 1826
« on: Thursday 02 October 08 21:58 BST (UK)  »
I'm looking to confirm (or not) a marriage record submitted on LDS site between
William Maxam and Hannah Harding on 8 April 1826 in Cheltenham.

Does anyone have access to parish records for this area?

Buckinghamshire Lookup Requests / 1891 Census HESTER
« on: Sunday 07 September 08 20:53 BST (UK)  »
I don't know whether I've missed something obvious, but I am trying to find the following person in 1891 Census and cannot find her anywhere!

Emily Hester born 1886 (+/-1) Wycombe

I have her in 1901, but she is not with her family  :'(
I may well have to order a birth certificate to find out her parents, but was trying to avoid it if possible  :-\

London & Middlesex Lookup Requests / Willesden Jewish Cemetery
« on: Saturday 05 April 08 17:48 BST (UK)  »
Does anyone live near Willesden Jewish Cemetery, Beaconsfield Road?
If so, I was wondering if you'd be able to have a look for a grave and take a photo or find out what is written on it. 
Just in case the details are:

Esther Lyons
Date of burial 16/11/1897
Section K
Row C
Plot 17

Here's hoping ...... ;)

I have posted this once before, but I thought I'd try again as I'm still stuck, although I have few bits of extra info:
Looking for any information on:
James Oakley White born High Wycombe, Bucks
Father: Frederick Oakley White
Emigrated with his mother Eileen Mary White ) in Nov 1948 on SS Washington.
Arrived in New York 22 Nov 1948
Destination recorded on Passenger list: 1028 W Hollins St. Baltimore

I believe he was in the US Navy.

Any ideas of how I can find out more e.g. where he went, who he married, if he had children etc???

US Resources & Offers / Finding people in the US
« on: Monday 19 November 07 20:57 GMT (UK)  »
I came across this website today which you can search for individuals (some alive, some not) and it gives you a fair amount of detail about them.  Thought it might be useful, particularly if you have an unusual name.  There are a few English references (found my husband on it  :o) but mainly US.  Apparently has over 39 million people listed on it  :o

Europe / German Look up needed - not really an immigrant!
« on: Tuesday 14 August 07 22:33 BST (UK)  »
I wasn't sure if this was the right place to put this request, but it seemed the 'best fit'.

I've just spotted on the 1881 Census a Gustaf Lowenthal b1836 Oelft, Germany.  He is on board a ship called GF Muntz in Lundy Island, Devon.   ???
He also seems to be listed on a German Ships Crew List in Bremen, but I can't access the details.  :'(

Can some kind soul see if they can find anything about him or the ship he was on?

« on: Thursday 15 February 07 16:40 GMT (UK)  »
Looking for the possible baptism of William White  c1785 in Emmington, Oxfordshire which I believe comes under Thame registration district.
I know it's a very common name - but just thought it would be worth a shot  ;)
 :) Thanks
