Hampshire & Isle of Wight / Re: Any idea what Midge could be short for?

As this has been reactivated (!), I can add that I've had email correspondence with a Midge in NZ whose 'formal' name is Margery

If you mean were each of them twins, then look again to see if there are relevant entries close by each one.  Could be even an hour or two apart (poor mother!) in those days.

The Common Room / Re: Electoral Register and dead ancestors
« on: Saturday 24 November 18 12:16 GMT (UK)  »
If nobody (family / executors ) advised the Electoral Office, how were they to know?

In that era, no computers etc, and I'd guess the various government departments didn't talk to each other much, either ??? ???

Whose responsibility was it to advice the Electoral Office?

Warwickshire / Re: Married at sea? Where would it be recorded?
« on: Friday 23 November 18 23:53 GMT (UK)  »
If married at sea, it should be in the ship's log.

The problem may be, getting hold of that ??? ??? ???

Otherwise, if it was a British ship, have you tried the special section of the GRO records for events at sea / overseas?

I thought it might be Irish?

Or else the writer didn't know how to spell Murdoch?

Are you sure that's an occupation?

In the second snip, I'd say the name is Muredach Hannan
