I'm not sure if this is the most recent thread, but I just used the link and go the premium mebership for 89.99.

First try, because I know some people have said they have to click the link multiple times.

The Common Room / Re: Frank Jeffrey TRIGG, when did he die?

Thanks Everybody

it seems so simple when you all do it. I have spent hours looking, in all the name combinations I could think of.

I really need to get better at this  :)

The Common Room / SOLVED: Frank Jeffrey TRIGG, when did he die?
« on: Friday 10 December 21 12:16 GMT (UK)  »
Firstly, apologies for putting this here, I wasn't sure of the etiquette when it could be either England or Wales.

Frank Jeffrey Trigg was born 23 Dec 1923 in Newent, Gloucestershire. He grew up just over the border in Llantarnam, Monmouthshire.

Family lore says he died when either he, or his elder brother Harold Maurice (b 1915) was 14. It is unclear from the sentence structure which one was 14! He died of TB. ("oh yes, Maurice had a brother who died of TB when he was 14")

I have ordered a death certificate for the only death I can find, which is Jan 1929 in Bournemouth. This would make Frank around 4 and Harold around 14 which could fit, and although the family have no connection to Bournemouth we thought it possible there was a TB sanatorium there (There were many on the south coast due to the favourable air).

All well and good we think.................................

Except that I now find Frank is listed on the 1939 census as living at home in Llantanam and is described as incapacitated, which would fit with being ill with TB but completely throws out the 1929 death.

I cannot find another death anywhere that could be him, after 1939.

Can anyone help?

TIA, Tracey

May be the other Ada but I have now discounted this as have narrowed it down.

Gloucestershire / Eva or Ethel TRIGG, who is still alive in 1911?
« on: Sunday 05 December 21 12:52 GMT (UK)  »
Hi Everybody

I did ask about Eva before and got a couple of answers. I was just checking to see if anyone had any further information as its coming up to Christmas and I can't justify splashing out on more certificates right now! Especially as it is not a direct line.

Timothy Trigg B1842 Marries Mary Meek b1854 on 31st May 1879 in Gloucester.

They have the following children:

Kitty May b1880-d1909
Hilda b1881-d1964
Maurice John b1882-d1891

Eva b1823-d????

Mildred b1885-d after 1928
Archibald Martin b1806-d after 1928
Colin b1887-d1888
Morton b1889-d1977

Ethel b1891 - d????

Arthur Harold b1892 d1892
Lilly b1897 - d after 1911

On the 1911 census, Tim and Mary record 11 children, 6 living, 5 dead.

All the above information has at least 2 sources so I am as sure as possible that it is correct, which leaves either Eva or Ethel alive in 1911, The other must have died.

It may be Eva who died as there is a BMD record for a death in Westbury on Severn in Dec 1883 apparently, although I cannot find the index at the GRO, Ancestry or FreeBMD.

I did find an index for the death of an Ethel in 1906, Newent 6a 188 which could be her as the age is about right

If anybody has any additional info on these girls which might confirm, I would be really greatful.


The Common Room / Re: Conundrum for future generations

Yes, I suppose you are right.

Following a conversation on Facebook, I did have an idea though!

I'm going to create a note in all of my modern relatives with all their known internet usernames etc as I suppose locating digital history will be as important in the future as official records. Judging by what some people put on Social media distant descendants in 200 years will know what we had for dinner on any given day!

The Common Room / Conundrum for future generations
« on: Tuesday 30 November 21 21:39 GMT (UK)  »

My husband and i were married abroad. While the marriage is 100% legally recognized in the uk, it isnt registered with the GRO.

In order for that to happen we have to get our spanish marriage certificate officially translated and notorisef in order to lodge it with the GRO and obtain a british marriage certificate.  This would cost a considerable amount so we have never bothered.

However, anyone in the future searching for a marriage for us wouldn't find one and would presume we are unmarried. Not a problem in this day and age, but also not correct!

I wonder how many other people this applies to?
