The Common Room / Brickwall on Armerican arrival, 1877 -1881?
« on: Monday 05 April 21 10:36 BST (UK)  »
Hi to all,
Hoping someone can supply information / guide me in the right direction.??
What I am asking mainly for is for information on how to find / access Ships passenger records across the Atlantic between the years of 1877 & 1900.?

This is a Brickwall of a Brickwall that has been a problem to the family for quite some time on both sides of the Atlantic.?
It concerns an Ancestor, my G / Grandfather's Brother, who was born in Liverpool, Lancashire 1854 ??.
He has Married in 1874 and with his English wife he has four children in England by the end of year 1881.

The 1881 Census is the last English Census found of him being in England.

By 1883 his English Wife has remarried. (  Assume bigamously.?? )

The next Census/es that he appears on are American 1900 - 1910 and the 1920 Censuses.
He himself ( bigamously?? ) Marries in America in 1896, and has four Children born by 1920. He dies in Jan.1930.

This is where both the English / American Family/s are confused ( Brickwall? ) as to what the American Censuses show / reveal.?
These three censuses they have him of arriving / entering America between 1877 and 1881.?? - No earlier American Census has been found on him before 1900.?

 ( English records have him of Fathering three? English Chlidren between 1876 and 1881? )
 ( American Censuses  have him of being in America since 1877.? )
This info is / has been conflicting to both Family's on each side of the Atlantic on what to believe?

As to what records show, just how has he or someone managed to Father Children in England as the 1881 Census show's and also be able to be in America between the same years? of 1877-1881?

As then the only way across the Atlantic was by Ship ( 1877 - 1881? ). I am  looking / searching for information of how to search Ships Passenger Lists of that time for my Great Grandfather's Brother.
When he went to America he changed his name from Harry Wentzell b 1854/6 to Harry Sadler/Saddler.

Appreciate any help / advice, Thank you,
 and thank you for taking the time to read my post   Best Regards Just J

Surrey / Re Marriage 1935
« on: Tuesday 09 March 21 17:21 GMT (UK)  »
Hi,
Don't know if anyone can or is able to help. My membership has recently expired with Ancestry. My renewing of membership I have on hold, because I have hospital appointments due in the pipeline and is one of reasons why I have not yet renewed.
Of the following from the 1911 Census. I think I have finally found a Marriage which may be a Marriage that relates to my ancestors. On the 1911 Census the couple are entered down as of being Married for 3 years. Research that I did I only covered a 20 year time span. I have only recently found that this was not going far enough into the records to when that they did finally Marry. The same named couple, if these are my relations, married some 24 years on from the 1911 Census.
What I would like if it is possible as much detail from the Marriage to see if that they are my ancestors.?
The Marriage took place in DEC 1935. - LEWISHAM - VOL 1D  Page 2110  for a JAMES HENRY SEARSE and ALICE VERNON
Many Thanks if you are able to help in anyway at all
          Best Regards  JUST J

The link that Sandra posted is for "6 months, not 1 year", so they are now charging 199.98 per year for Worldwide.


Malky

No it's still 89.99 Worldwide for a year. I'm Admin on a large FB genealogy group and people use this everyday. It only works if your old subscription has expired completely, before that it shows as 6 months.

groom,
Can you advise me, - My yearly contract finished on the 20th of last month. How long can I wait before I am able to purchase for the same lower priced deal
     Many thanks Just J

Thanks Malky
      Last year in Feb I paid the lower price for one year.
This year being a census release year can only be one of "some reason/s" why they have more than doubled the price from last year and they will not lower until they decide when they think it's "necessary".
I am not a person who will be paying over double for something that I paid half the price for the previous year, as much as I would like to have access to the 1921 Census.
 I can wait and see if a better deal comes up before the release.
Invalidity I suffer with, and with that sort of an increase going on from the previous year is by far too much for me to cover. I may have to settle for at least a one month's contract if nothing else appears    Regards Just J

 (groom & Rosie - I'm not as quick as you two on replying, Thanks for the info)

Hi Sandra, I purchased that same deal in Feb. last year and it's not long expired. I was hoping it would still be available for this year and your info has confirmed this for me. I'm possibly not going to renew until when the 1921 Census is released or I may hold back until how I am after treatment. With fingerers crossed I just hope the deal will still be available then.
                 Thanks again for the info, Best Regards Just J

Has anyone knowing of the price deals that are available on Ancestry at present?
I'm soon to be going to/into hospital for treatment.
My Annual agreement expired recently. I would like to know if anyone knows if there are any better deals of Ancestry than to what they are offering on the Ancestry site.?
Their six monthly deal of 54 plus seems good at present, but has anyone knowledge of a better deal. Or would it be better to wait nearer to the time that they release the 1921 Census. Any info much appreciated.
Regards JUST J
