Hi,
Still no years showing, on birth or marriages.
Frustrating x

Hi everyone,
At least I am not alone, so frustrating especially when you are really quick as a researcher and hop in and out of each individual birth etc until you find the connection you are looking for.
Thanks again

Hi,
As long as it's not just me, I'm searching GRO birth 1837-1915 & 1916 onwards.
It's been happening for a couple of days, I've even tried changing my web browser.
I will call ancestry tomorrow.
Thank you everyone

The Common Room / Ancestry birth registration year not appearing
« on: Saturday 10 October 20 13:11 BST (UK)  »
Hi,
When I am searching for births on Ancestry, the birth year doesn't seem to appear in the registration year column ,next to the registration quarter. You have to click into the persons name to view the year of birth. Only relatively recent birth years are showing up.
Is anyone else having the same issues ?
Frustrating !!
Thank you

The Common Room / Re: Freedom of information act 2000...re adoption waiting list
« on: Thursday 08 October 20 14:30 BST (UK)  »
Hi Antony,
I have a CERTIFIED COPY OF ENTRY , it states in the first column date & county of birth of child, it gives date of birth....then handwritten signed...Hackney, sub district Hackney North in the registration district of birth.
It gives the date of adoption order and where it took place. Croydon County Court 27/4/1960, and the the date of entry 10/5/1960.
Obviously I won't publish date of birth but the year was 1954.
So are we presuming he was born in Hackney as previously thought ?
Many thanks again for any thoughts

Hi Antony,
Thank you so much for your reply, I will certainly email Hackney council services.
I will also give the GRO a ring tomorrow after I finish work.
My friend has an adoption certificate for her deceased father, it states his adoptive name, date of birth, location where his birth was registered, and place were county and date where the formal adoption took place.
Another quick question to you :-
Would you know if I applied to the register office in Hackney for a couple of possible births certificates of the my friends deceased father, do they allow the facility to cross check the birth date to the one I give them and the one that's on the certificate ? I have DNA surname matches which appear in GRO births for Hackney in 1954., long shot I know but worth a try.
If it doesn't match would they refund my payment ?
I know they used to many years ago, before the days of ordering online.
Any ideas I would be very appreciative.
Many thanks

The Common Room / Freedom of information act 2000...re adoption waiting list
« on: Tuesday 06 October 20 13:47 BST (UK)  »
Hi all,
I am helping a friend research her deceased fathers adoption along analysing her DNA test results.
We are currently on Hackney councils LONG LONG waiting list to be able to gain into her fathers background into the adoption.
Back in 2000 I used the freedom of information act for another matter my question to you all is :-
Can I use the act just to enquire how many families are before us on the list regarding their own adoptions ?
The reason I would like to know is to ascertain if we may go down the private route and pay for our own social worker intermediary , which I have been told we can do to be able to gain access to what information we may be able to learn ?
We know the adoption records are held with the council as we have this confirmed.
Any thoughts ?
