Thank you for the reply,
So she just sends a copy of his death certificate and they will be able to trace his records from that?

Best wishes

I'm just about to apply for my maternal grandads (& adopted dad) army records.
I am fortunate enough to have his army number and unit.

My friend would love to apply for her grandads records too but hasn't got a clue what unit he was in, never mind army number. Is there any way she could find out & still apply?

Best wishes

Thank you,

I now know Adeline Wright Kynaston died 14/3/1951 and was buried in Glendale Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Los Angeles.

The link you provided says that county do not have any records online, so I will have to email them and see how to get a copy of the will. I know the Kynaston family left a large size will which had to be shared by various relatives in the UK.

Thanks for your help, best wishes

I'm looking for a will of a person who died 1951 in California. At the minute I don't know where she died or how to look for the will.

Does anybody know how/where to find the information? Thanks in advance.

Thank you for the replies :) . I will have a look at who they could possibly be now.

Thanks again, best wishes

Could anyone help with dating these photos. I know who the woman is in pic 4. She (Bella) lived 1884 to 1959. These others are her relatives but I don't know if they're siblings or parents.

Thank you in advance

Thank you again everyone for all the information.

This family is definitely a challenge! The one thing that is puzzling me is why the name change from Drake to Oates? She didn't marry (or I cannot find a marriage). She is listed as single woman on marriage and census. She hasn't moved miles to hide from some one either.

This is not an ancestor of mine. I have been trying to help a cousin with this. She did have a copy of Henry's marriage certificate, it listed no father but he put his mothers details instead as Charlotte Oates.

Thank you all for your input. I will pass on everything. I feel the only way forward is to get the parish records and as many certificates as possible. Although I think this family will take a while to unravel!

Thank you again

Does anyone know of any links for Mirfield?

I have a bit of a dilema.
1861 census Mirfiled:-
Charlotte Oates 64
Jackson Oates 16
Henry Oates 13
Abraham Jackson 44 

Same family 1851 census still in Mirfield
Charlotte Drake 53
Jackson Drake 6
Henry Drake 3
Abraham Jackson 34

I have the marriage details for both children. Jackson states his father is Abraham Jackson and Henry puts his mother in the fathers bit (never seen that before).

My problem is why the name change? I cannot find a marriage and both boys christenings are in the name Oates?

I'm puzzled, any ideas?
Thank you in advance to anyone who is willing to help.
Best wishes
