Hi Kath, It's been a while since I have been on RootsChat how are you related to this family? Maybe we can share info on their descendants

Northumberland / Alnwick Orphanage
« on: Friday 18 March 11 01:02 GMT (UK)  »
Does anyone have any information on the Orphanage in Alnwick, during the 1940's ?  My mother and several of her brothers and sisters were there between 1942 and 1946 however she was very young at the time and her memory is a little vague.  I want to be able to add details regarding the staff, daily life and the organisation to my family history as it is obviously quite a big part of the lives of my mother and several of her siblings.

Any information is more than I have currently.  Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Hi Fiona,
I have Mary Kirkaldie marrying William Halkerston on 3rd June 1826 in St.Andrews. I think Mary was born 26th July 1801 in Cupar, her parents were Alexander Kirkaldie (b. 14 Dec 1767 in Kinghorn) & Mary White (bapt. 24 April 1768 in Cupar)

Do you know this family.

born Bothel?

Bothal - Near Morpeth & Pegswood


Also is that a mark on her hair or is it a feather or just the style?

Hi Keith,
    I took that as being a feather I don't know if you guys agree or not.

    Mike, that is fantastic many thanks.

   Kali, I love what you have done with her dress that just looks "Right" to me.

Northumberland / Re: Berrington RC

there seems to be some overlap between the Berrington and Haggerston registers. The Berrington chapel remains a mystery. I know there is now a RC Church at Lowick, but I don't know if there is a connection between Berrington and Lowick.

These three "parishes" are all neighbouring, at least I can not think of one that would get in the way.  So maybe a single Priest would have served them all, certainly Berrington would not be big enough to have a priest of their own.  Unless it is just a chapel within a bigger parish which is most likely.  I hope this helps even if it is so long after your original post.

Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs / 2 Photo's needing something
« on: Monday 28 August 06 19:39 BST (UK)  »
  Here is another 2 photo's (not so important) the first well that's obvious what's needed here, as for the second well I would like to see a face and if it can be coloured that would be a bonus.  There is no urgency over these it would be nice to get them sorted.

Many thanks in advance.

Don't worry I won't post any more this week.   ;)

Can some kind soul please do something with this photograph of my grandmother, to our knowledge it is the ONLY photogrph of he in exsistance. She died when my mother was about 18 months old, so it mean quite alot to the family.  Many thanks in advance.
