Cardiganshire / Re: Confusing Surname Notes in FreeREG Record!
« on: Sunday 21 August 16 16:11 BST (UK)  »
It seems to work for me when I click on it from here. However, here is a transcription:

William son of George & Anne baptised 6 Jul 1806 at St Michael, Ciliau Aeron, Cardiganshire.  Father's patronymic noted as George Simpson

Cardiganshire / Confusing Surname Notes in FreeREG Record!
« on: Sunday 21 August 16 15:55 BST (UK)  »

This is the record of one of my ancestors (William George) but I am confused on why the surname of the father is different from the register's note. It says George George, but the note says George Simpson. Any ideas?

Monmouthshire / Re: Isaac Kemble's and Catherine Donovan's Parents
« on: Friday 08 July 16 08:34 BST (UK)  »
Hi all,

I am familiar with a few census records and such. I am just trying to find out about baptisms and such to further the Kemble and Donovan lineage.

James Kemble ca. 1816 was supposedly born in/around Gloucestershire and married Elizabeth Colly.

Timothy Donovan ca. 1815 was born in Ireland and Married a Mary.

Monmouthshire / Isaac Kemble's and Catherine Donovan's Parents

I have gathered census records and a baptism for Isaac Kemble (Born, 1841 and Baptised 7 Mar 1847). He died in 1907. The baptism record shows and 1841 census shows Isaac's parents as James and Elizabeth. I am wondering if anyone could assist me in furthering his lineage as I can't seen to find convincing records for him.

He also married a Catherine Donovan, who I'd like to further research also. She was born in 1842 in Newport, Wales and parents were Timothy and Mary born in Ireland.

Any assistance for these two would be great! Thanks.

I currently have one tree that I have successfully used for many years which has 1800 people on it. I like this method because it is simpler and organises reports that can be generated easily.

I have seen others use different family tree projects or Gedcoms for a specific ancestor, surname or lineage. What are you thoughts on this? Do you do it? If so, what are the pros and cons?

Ah, so that would only be a small percentage from 1831-1901 according to the population at the time -

Ireland / Which Ancestry subscription allows Irish records?
« on: Sunday 26 June 16 16:02 BST (UK)  »
I live in the UK and I know I have Irish ancestors but I am just wondering, will I need to get a worldwide subscription or can I make do with a premium subscription being that the Republic of Ireland is not part of the UK?

Hi all,

I just came across this thread and noticed that some names are similar to that of a particular lineage from my tree. My 3rd great-grandmother was Catherine Donovan with parents named Timothy and Mary from Cork. They seemed to have moved to Cardiff, Wales when Catherine was born but unable to find many other connections.

Tribalpages is free for its basic form, if you need more room per person for information or photos then it costs to upgrade.

Thank you, also.
