Ireland / Grant of Probate Northern Ireland
« on: Wednesday 05 October 22 18:50 BST (UK)  »
Is it possible to get a copy of a grant of probate made in Northern Ireland?
Many thnks for your help.

Many thanks for the ideas and comments. I will give them a try.

Hi - can anyone please recommend a good family tree software, quite happy to buy rather than use a free one - looking for ease of use, nice clear charts and attractive trees that print to A4 and can be saved as pdf files so easy to share and ability to do several separate trees.

Thank you so much for all the replies. Interesting to see that Albert & Bertha emigrated and took maybe all or some of their daughters with them. Thank you for the newspaper articles - very interesting. It is now a complete mystery to me who the sister named Edith could have been who wrote to them from England in the 1990s. Perhaps Edith was not a sister at all, but  maybe a good friend or even a 'sister' through their Methodist church?

Thanks.  I cant find a Glady Beecroft being born in Notts around 1911, so maybe this person is named Beecroft by marriage? And no sorry do not have any exact dates of birth.

I have received a letter from Australia from a descendant trying to trace relatives of her late mother Lorna nee Beecroft b. abt. 1922 Basford, Selston d. 2018 Australia.  Lorna had an elder sister known as 'Edith' who I think is Gladys E. Beecroft b. abt. 1920 Basford who in the 1990s was living at Sedgwick Street, Jacksdale. There were 3 other sisters as well, Ivy b. abt. 1909 Basford, Ada Ethel b. 1908 Greasley and Nora E. Beecroft b. abt. 1917 d. 1921.  In 1911 the family were at Brow Cottages, Annesley Lane, Selston parents were Albert Beecroft b.abt. 1885 Selston and Bertha nee Musgrove. Albert was son of William Beecroft b.abt. 1843 Riddings and Matilda nee Hunt.  I have tried to trace Ivy, Ada Ethel and Gladys E forward but with no luck - can't find them on the 1939 or getting married or dying. I hope you can help. There is also quite a gap between the births of Albert & Berthas daughters - 1908. 1909. GAP 1917 1920 1922?

New Zealand Completed Requests / The AULT sisters
« on: Wednesday 07 March 18 00:27 GMT (UK)  »
I am looking for any information regarding Phyllis May nee Ault born abt 1899 Shardlow, Allenton, Derbyshire, England who married Roger Wrigley 1921 at Shardlow. They had a son named Charles A Wrigley in 1922 at Shardlow, they emigrated to NZ in 1933, Roger died in NZ, Auckland 1965 aged 70 and Phyllis died NZ in 1981 aged 81. Family rumour says a sister of Phyllis also went to NZ, she had sisters Edith Priscilla Dawson Ault (m. George Leeson in 1919 at Derby) don't think it was that sister, more likely Hilda Victoria Ault b. abt. 1900 Allenton Derby m. Frank Woods in 1927 in UK, had dau Patricia Woods 1928 Belper Derbyshire and then perhaps went to NZ?  Hope someone can help. Many thanks.
