Many thanks for that link as I have just discovered from a will that Georgiana Tunstall and Herbert Tunstall from Goldenhill, Stoke on Trent must have emigrated there (Chicago, Illinois) and I have used your link and there are two strong candidates whose DOB tally with the 1841 and 1851 census that look promising.
Another relative Thomas William Norton Tunstall also went to Belvedere, Illinois but I dont know any other details on their settlement in the USA yet.
Thanks again
regards Gareth

Following are a couple of other helpful Illinois sites:

http://auroracemeteries.com/

and several helpful city directories and other illinois sites can be found by googling:

Aurora, Illinois + genealogy.

Had nothing but the address 79 N. Smith Street, Aurora, Ill. plus a signature of "Auntie Lill" from an 1908 letter.  Traced person via Aurora City directory for that address finding the whole family and then found several of them via the cemetery site. ;)

Hello Annie:
hope you don;t get all that snow!!!!!!!  Have a nice spring day here, lots of blue sky and sunshine plus all the snow has gone. !!

But Central Alberta got a bid dump of snow on the week end.  Glad it was them and not us.


Cheers

Hello all:

I noticed a big interest in the Chicago newspaper link. Thought this might complement it. Lots of fun stuff if you have relatives who were there in the 1800s and 1900s.
