Durham Lookup Requests / Baaptism Eva COLLINS 1916

Wondering if someone would be kind enough to find a Baptism for Eva COLLINS born 24th March 1916 in Sacriston, Co Durham.

Looking for parents names, I believe the mothers maiden name would be DAVIDSON.


Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Re: Gedmatch - not sure what use it is!

I can empathise with a few on here. I come from a long line of No Dads in all of my families. Which does cause problems.

I also have long lists of people who share my DNA without putting a family tree on. I really do not understand someone who would do that.

The main one for me was with a family connection that proved where my fathers family came from in Essex when his g grandfather had lived in Kent for most of his life. Just one of my No Dad lines. Because of the DNA I have now proved what took an awful long time and a lot of work..

Of the few who have put trees on, very, very few have any matching names, but the most frequent one is Smith. lol

I have only had contact with about six people, most have been helpful. I have tried contacting others who I can see a possible connection to, but have not had any replies.

Very frustrating.

I would say you are right about the RSF, I cannot find any other badge in my books that look like that.

No Idea sorry, but it looks very Italian to me.

Hi all,

Got the certificate today and it confirms Jane HITCHCOCK, the mother of Edward Whitman HITCHCOCK.
Only just though, as I was hoping that it was either one of her parents who registered no it was an Ann HOOKER who was present at death of Saint Peters ???? Canterbury.

It states that Jane is the daughter of Henry HITCHCOCK a Photographic Artist. Which would be right as he has given his occupation as a Portrait Painter in the census.

Jane address looks like Northgate Street, Northgate, where she died on the twentieth of ????? February 1861

What I cannot work out at all is the cause of death, it is "P......... P............... Diseased Bowels Not Certified".

I was going to put an insert in here but for some reason I cannot do it. Will have to try separately.

At least thanks very much to you lovely people, I have found her, even though its tragedy with her son only 15.


Hampshire & Isle of Wight / Re: Eastney Barracks, Portsmouth

Hi There,

It would not be unusual for a Stoker to be based at a Royal Marine Barracks. If they had some form of heating or engine at the barracks that required maintenance, a Stoker would have been doing it for them. Marines were for fighting, not Stoking.
