(In family search: born 15 March 1801 in Burnham, son of Daniel Pond and Mary)

This one is mine ... but I think he married twice.

Thanks heaps for the help ... I need to see how I can get these files opened.  I think it is back to the old hard copy for me now!!!

I have tried everything to open the files, can't do it on XP either.  Some are .ged files and are from 2004.  Some are older versions of paf and I have paf5.  Some are legacy and I don't have that on pc and if I download it I would have the same problem as they will be an older version. 
I have always preferred my hard copy system, but started computerised version and had stuff everywhere.

Thank you ... I have lost my files  :-[  :'(  :-\ :-[

Been through everything and the one I need I can't find.  I have some .paf files on my pc but I can't open them even though I have .paf 5 on my computer.  I think it might be something to do with windows 10.  I will have another go tomorrow on my laptop that has XP on it.  Not very happy :(

Thanks Laura ... I'll have to have a look at mine tomorrow (off to bed) ... there appears to be a few born around the same time in Burnham that ended up in Cornwall so think they might be brothers.  James POND (going from memory so it might have been John) married a Williams in Talland (or Polperro), he was a teacher (again from memory) their son is my great great grandfather who moved to Kenwyn and married Anne Dungey.  great grandfather Sydney and his brother John James came to Western Australia.

Lancashire / Re: Centenary of ANZAC
« on: Monday 06 July 15 08:12 BST (UK)  »
I am in Australia and not at all familiar with England so any help would be greatly appreciated.

An initiative for the Centenary of ANZAC is Poppy Park that saw poppies made to commemorate the Australian war dead. People could purchase these poppies and research the soldier that was commemorated. I have purchased 5 of these poppies and intend to pass them on to the families with a brief history of the lad's service.

The first one to arrive is for an English lad from Lancashire, named Percy SANDHAM, he was born in Bolton c1892 and the son of Fredrick and Jane Hartley Rollinson. Percy served with the 30th Bn AIF and was killed 25.02.1917, has no known grave and commemorated on VB Memorial.

Percy was head chorister boy at Bolton Parish Church (St Peters) and when the Roll of Honour at the Aust War Memorial was being organised his mother gave her address as 49 George Street West Birmingham.

Other than the details in his service file, at the AWM and on CWGC I have had little success in tracing his family so that I can pass on this poppy to them. Any help locating his family to enable the poppy to be sent to them would be greatly appreciated.

What I have managed to establish is that Percy had a sister named Frances. Frances married Percy Yates and had three children, Frederick, Eileen and Myra. Frederick married Gladys Beatrice Elsie SMITH in Birmingham and she died 2005 in Dorset. So I am hoping that at some point in time the family of Frederick and Elsie Yates moved to Dorset and someone can put me in touch with them so I can send them Percy's poppy.

A David Sandham apparantly has a tree on GR for this family and someone has contacted him but as yet no reply.
