Denbighshire / place name similar to Llagemyn
« on: Thursday 20 October 05 22:03 BST (UK)  »
I am looking at a family Robert Hughes and Laura Hughes (1861- 1891) living in Festiniog. Her birthplace is listed as Dolwyddelan, Caernarvonshire which I can find but his has been transcribed (hard to read on census) as Llangemyn Denbighshire but I can't find this place. Has anyone any idea what it could be please?
Thanks Heywood

The Lighter Side / deciphering cause of death
« on: Wednesday 19 October 05 20:50 BST (UK)  »
Sorry if this is in the wrong forum- not sure where it should be! Can anyone please read and interpret the bit between Measles and Bronchitis. It is with reference to the death of a 1 year old child.
I am trying to put a jpg on and have followed the instructions found elsewhere on this site but cannot do this - so am attaching it. I do hope it works.

Lancashire Completed Lookup Requests / exchange district liverpool 1851-1871
« on: Sunday 09 October 05 01:03 BST (UK)  »
Can anyone help please? I am trying to help a contact in USA. I have found his family:
1861 Liverpool census Exchange district
47 Hodson Street (looks like that -could be Hudson Street)
Patrick Gavin 30 yrs born Ireland ; Sabina Gavin 23 Ireland ; Daniel 9 yrs born Liverpool; Mary Ann 5 yrs  born L'pool; Bridget 2 yrs born L'pool
Anthony Callaghan 30 yrs boarder  born Ireland
Michael Callaghan  37 yrs  boarder

1871same address - much fainter and harder to read and ltranscribed as 'Goven' but handwritten is clear to see is Gavin
I am  looking for: a possible entry in 1851 census and a  marriage - Patrick Gavan and Sarah Joyce and the birth/ baptism records of the children.
I have tried FreeBMD and some names in 1837 online with no success - quite a few Gavan (and variations) - with possible dates but not accurate enough.
Does anyone know the name of the Catholic church in that area for possible baptisms or can anyone suggest anything else?
Many thanks

Patrick Gavan / Gavin   born Ireland
Sarah Gavan wife         born Ireland

I have approximate ages but no address - sorry.
The family emigrated to USA around 1875.
Thanks very much

Mayo / Goldens of Rathlacken and Duffy

I realise that my previous posting- subject  'Carrowmore-Lacken/ Kilcummin' could be misleading - unless of course you know the area. I am really after any information about the name Golden/ Goldrick of Rathlacken please. I do have Duffy interests too in the same general area.

Staffordshire / Whitehouse, Tipton - any information
« on: Sunday 07 August 05 22:51 BST (UK)  »
Looking for any information on the family of William and Hannah Whitehouse.
I have information from censuses but not 1861. I think William might have died by then.
On a birth certificate I have, Hannah is named:
 Hannah Whitehouse, late Humphries, formerly Gorsman.
I'm not sure but wonder if she was born Humphries and married Gorsman- but could that have been the other way round?
They were living in both West Bromwich and Tipton at various times and Hannah is listed as being born in Birmingham.

I would be interested if anyone has Golden relatives from Rathlacken. I am also chasing up Duffy from this general area. I think people from these families mainly went to USA but perhaps some ended up in England. Thanks.
