Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / 1939 Register
« on: Tuesday 11 December 18 21:07 GMT (UK)  »
Looking for Jack Lennards on the 1939 register.........brings up an entry for Jack Levine - crossed out and "Lennard" inserted. It gives a date of birth........and the following notation: "m.d. 230 AYA 28.5.51" any ideas?

According to the entry, it's possible Jack Levine was married to (Joan Avril) Hoffman........ There isn't a birth entry for Jack Levine for December quarter 1905 - per the birth date given and I can't find a marriage between Levine / Hoffman.........which the entry also suggests.

London and Middlesex / Death Registration and burial
« on: Friday 11 August 17 19:46 BST (UK)  »
Greater London Burial Index includes:
Mary Ann Lloyd, 57, Little Sutton St, 8 Jan 1854 age 56, St Thomas Charterhouse, Islington

There are three death registions in 1854 for Mary Lloyd - no Mary Ann's - Hackney, Southwark and Marylebone. None fall in the first quarter.

Any ideas?

Yet another door slammed in my face in my fairly hopeless attempts to find out more about my father's death in Cameroon in 1964. As he was dual French/English and apparently socialising with French friends when the purported accident occurred, I made an approach to the French Consul in Yaounde. Letter received today basically tells me : Je vous informe que la section consulaire de l'Ambassade de France au Cameroun n'est pas en mesure d'effectuer de telles recherches. En effect, la recherche dans l'interest des familles est un service qui n'est plus rendu par l'administration francaise dupuis 2013. Je vous invite donc a adresser vos demandes a des professionels de la recherche privee.

Why, why why is it necessary to get a professional researcher? .........Anyone happen to have contact with someone who would take this up?

Can anyone recommend a FH programme which runs on a Mac? Preferably something free of charge - and something I can easily download. At present using Legacy Family Tree on Windows 8 but looking to change over to Apple.

Thanks in advance.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Birth Certificate Amendment
« on: Monday 08 August 16 17:46 BST (UK)  »
I've just received a birth certificate. Box 7 reads:
"X the mark of Penelope Burn
(12) Occupier (the word occupier has been crossed out)
4 Edwards Court
Princess Street

on the right hand side of box 10........has been written: "Twelve" with the initials of the registrar. The 12 obviously applies to the crossing out of "occupier" and inserting "mother"

Is the number 12 associated with this kind of amendment? If not, what does it mean?


Donegal / Leeper Family
« on: Friday 15 July 16 19:37 BST (UK)  »
I'd like to find the baptism for my mother Muriel Leeper b 1928 registered Stranolar. Father was Oliver Leeper and Marion Kilpatrick. Birth certificate shows she was born in Cappry - which appears to be the name of a road. Also interested in the baptisms of any siblings together with marriages for Murial and any siblings............
Have these records been returned to a Records Office, as in the UK? Where would I find these records please?


Family History Beginners Board / 1939 Register
« on: Tuesday 31 May 16 17:59 BST (UK)  »
I've searched for and found Herbert Johnson b 1889 living in Carshalton, Surrey with his wife Alice - alongside her name is the name Bachelor.......... she married someone with that surname after the death of Herbert some years after 1939. Coincidence? 

For windows users I recommend the Legacy free program which I've used for years and years and think is great (I'm a researcher, not a geek!) - but what is there available for MAC users?
All suggestions welcome
