Carole, thank you very much, my friend will be chuffed to bits with this info. Dave, wow, I thought tracing German/ Prussian records was so difficult. Iíve been trying to find info on my wifeís ancestress from Prussia for ages but have been clutching at straws.The rest of the info that you have will be so appreciated, Phil.

Thank you both very much. I can let my friend know now. The captain name seems about right for the family. His fathers middle name was Rycroft which is a bit unusual. As for not knowing his grandparents Christian names, I didnít know one of my grans name as when I was a child I just called her gran. I had no close family left alive to ask. Thank you once again, Phil.

Nottinghamshire Lookup Requests / Taylor/ Nurnberg marriage
« on: Wednesday 28 April 21 16:59 BST (UK)  »
Hi all, Iím trying to find some info for a friend. His father was Ian R Taylor. Ianís mother is just down as Nurnberg on the family search site and no wedding shows up on free bmd. I wonder why family search just has her surname down as the babyís mother. Also seems to be the name of a German town, Phil.

Ah, ok sorry for the misunderstanding. Iíve got a feeling my Jones link through my dna match might not be down this line. The other side of the family Iím matched with is via a violet Webster born about 1909. Maybe she had a Jones in her line going back. I really appreciate everyones help on this, thank you, Phil.

Hi Osprey, my John Jones was definitely born in 1849 though!

Brenton  boy, blimey, you could throw a blanket over these addresses. Itís so frustrating that you take a step forward and then itís stalemate for ages.My grt grt grandfather William was dead by the time his son John got married in 1874. The marriage took place when John lived in Tredunnock and one of the witnesses was a William Skipp.

Hi Cas, the 1911 Alfred Edwin is in Abersychan with a son Edward George. Edward is definitely the grandfather of my dna match. Iím going down the Jones line as through MyHeritage I have a cousins son who is an overwhelming match with me. That match is through my dads sister ( born Jones). MyHeritage has given me a match with Edwards granddaughter but also my cousins son as a match with her. I hope that makes sense, Phil (Jones).

Thank you both very much. Perhaps Joshua is the link to my John and his father William. These Welsh villages and parishes werenít very far apart were they!
