The only Hans Peterson I can find in NY around that time is in the 1860 census aged 39, a bricklayer from Norway.  Wife (?) was Helina.

I can't see any address on that census but the Brooklyn City Directory for 1862 has a Hans Peterson, Mason, at 5 Vine.

So far I can't anything about 6 Rector Street.

Looking forward to your next update  :D

I have the same problem Squawk, and also the thing on Ancestry where it insists on filling in the search box with someone from my existing tree.

I use Windows 10 & Chrome, but the auto-fill has only really become an issue in the last month or two so I don't know if its as a result of some update or other.

Apologies - I've just re-checked and there is an additional deposit covering burials 1856-1978 so I was wrong about them not surviving.

I have the LRFHS Burial index for Rutland, and whilst most parishes go up to the mid/late 1900's, the last Ketton burial is June 1881.

According to the records office the burial register ends in 1856, although there is a Memoranda Book that goes up to 1881 - the same year that the LRFHS index ends.

It may therefore be that the burial register for 1899 has not survived.

Durham / Re: Marriage 13 Sep 1910 at Esh Winning lookup?

The reference to St Godric's is a little odd, as film no 2082476 (which details the marriage) is listed as follows:

Catholic church records of the city of Durham, 1812-1989
Catholic Church. St. Godric's:
Baptisms, 1868-1911; Deaths, 1883, 1894-1899, 1902-1933, 1900-1901, 1933-1989
http://www.rootschat.com/links/01mco/

So it shouldn't include any marriages.  What it does include though is Mary Ann Scott's birth & baptism:

Could it be that a note has been added to her birth/baptism simply recording the fact that she had married?

Hi RTL

I'd already looked at that one and he's in London with wife Camilla in 1911, aged 40 & married 8 years, so presumably the Giovanni Battista who married Marta Camilla Brenta in 1903. 

I guess it's possible it could be the same person - the timescale certainly fits - but he'd need some excellent moisturiser to get away with claiming to be 40 when he would have really been 64 (but if it is him, I definitely need to know which brand ;D )
