Armagh / William James, Thomas & Georgina Stevenson - How to prove related ?
« on: Friday 08 March 13 23:22 GMT (UK)  »
In my research I have come across these three people who I believe are brothers and sister but am having trouble proving it. I have not found any baptisms for them.
1.William James is my great- grandfather and was born in about 1850. He moved to England in the early 1870's and on the 1881 census his place of birth says Kinnego Lurgan. His father was a Thomas Stevenson, farmer.
2.Georgina was born about 1854 and her father was also a Thomas Stevenson, farmer. On her marriage certificate it has Drumnakelly as her home. She married Halliday Gracey.
3.Thomas was born approximately 1847. He went on to Trinity and became a clergyman. His father is also Thomas Stevenson, farmer.
My grandfather told my mother he had an uncle that went to Trinity so although only a story this would fit.
I did employ a researcher a few years ago to try and find Thomas, the father and she did find one connected to Drumnakelly and Clanrolla but no definite proof this was him. She did find a marriage certificate for a Thomas Stevenson who was a widower and this had Drumnakelly as his residence.

I am hoping someone may be able to help me out on this issue. Any ideas???

Thanks in advance.

Tipperary / Thomas Stevenson - Clergyman Roscrea, Bourney West
« on: Friday 08 March 13 22:55 GMT (UK)  »
I have checked the Crockford's directory and Thomas disappears after 1915/16 so I presume he died.
I am hoping someone may have some information about Thomas, when he died and possibly where he is buried. Also if anyone has any information on him at all it would be great.He was born in Armagh in about 1847 but am hopeful there may be answers in Tipperary.

Any help would be great. Thanks in advance.

Can anybody tell me where old staff records may be located. I believe my grandmother worked there in the early 1900s.
Thanks in advance

Thank you all for your replies.
Derek , I don't believe this is my lady. Mine is definitely Olga Elizabeth Wilson and she did die in 1972. Sometimes she had Hailstones as a third christian name. Her maiden name was Watt.

Nookie , Thanks for your email about where the records are kept. I did think about writing to the crematorium and may do so anyway. I will try a look up request as well.
I also looked at the archives with no success as well.

Thanks also to you Ruth. I will keep looking at the Family Search site for any new records.

I am going off on a bit of a tangent here but as it appears it may be difficult to get a copy of the death notice would it be better if I tried to trace the family another way. I believe Olga was part of a a fairly prominent family in East London. Her husband was part owner & managing director of Wilson Rowntree up until about 1960. Perhaps there are some other sources where I could access family details by posting a different request??

Once again thanks for all your help.

South Africa / Olga Elizabeth Wilson - Death notice
« on: Saturday 05 January 13 22:18 GMT (UK)  »

This is my first time at this so I hope I get it right. This relative died in 1972 exact date not known. A plaque with these details is in the Cambridge Crematorium East London. How can one access the death notice as it is not at the archives and I presume the details would be held at the Master of the High Courts Office. I am based in the UK so any advise would be great. I am trying to trace the family and thought the death notice might help with my quest. If at all possible how easy is it to apply for these details.

Olga was married to Douglas David Wilson of the Wilson Brothers confectioners in East London.
