Hi copperbeech

Its me again and I have to once again to confess that I've bought this item for 17 and .... what an item.  I wish my family bible had that much information it would of saved me a year of trying to find the correct records, the entries are staggering and very factual and when I've compared the parish records and GRO indexes with whats written its accurate.

My goal again is to unite this with the family it originally came from if possible and use it as a research exercise project to hone my skills to find living members of the family concerned.

Mike

Hi there,
I’ve just joined Rootschat and came across your post re Allen Family.
My ancestors were Allen’s predominantly in Bulwell, Notts. Including George Allen the grocer who was also on the Board of guardians, married to Mary White with numerous children including my G.G grandmother Louisa.
I don’t know if you may still have the info, but if you do and it relates to these  then I would be more than happy to pay you for the information.
Please feel free to contact me.

Hi Meakmogs and welcome to Rootschat, Mike hasn't been online since October last, if his email is still active you may get a response. In the meantime, have a look around and see what we have to offer.
Good Luck!

Hi there

Haven't been on for a great while but I'm back on this case, had an accident with my old computer and lost all the electronic records I'd collected.  Luckily I had printed out most of them so its a case of re-finding all the electronic stuff and re-entering into my family tree programs again.

As for this Allen family they are from the Nottingham city and I'm certain there are not any that are residing in the Bulwell area at all. Soon as I've researched further I will let you all know about this family and any possible living relatives I've managed to find.

The bible is actually a very old book and is a Book of Common Prayer, alot of the 's' are actually printed as a 'f'. This copy was printed by T. Wright and W. Gill, printers to the Univerfity: And fold by W. Jackfon, in Oxford. 1767 [Price: One Shilling and Eight-pence, unbound]

The births, marriages and deaths written on the front and rear pages of the bible are sush an easy starting point for the start of my research.
