Canada / Timothy Hurley, Vancouver death 1972?
« on: Monday 28 November 16 10:30 GMT (UK)  »

I am looking to try and find the death of Timothy Hurley, he was born in Cork, Ireland in 1912 to Jeremiah Hurley and Patricia. He emigrated to Canada before 1964 with his wife Pauline first to Toronto then to moved to Vancouver in 1967. He sometimes went by the Irish version of his name Tadhg.
We believe he died about 1972 in Vancouver but this is where I am stuck.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am finding the Canadian records difficult to navigate.

Durham / Isabella Chapman, Elm Street, South Moor
« on: Friday 07 October 16 21:30 BST (UK)  »
When I started my tree a million years ago I never bothered to get my grandmother's birth cert as she told me all the details of her birth and her parents and sisters, so I never questioned what she told me. She passed away two years ago with her papers going to my aunt who passed away last year and then they traveled to my uncle who today passed them to me as the keeper of the records. In the pile was a Deed Poll petition filled out by my grandmother in 1939 in it she stated that she wanted to abandon all ties to her mother's name as she had been raised from the age of six weeks by the people she saw as her parents.
All I have to go on is the details in the Deed Poll and her original birth cert which was attached to it. My grandmother was born Olive Chapman on 11 November 1921 to Isabella Champman of 74 Elm Street, south Moor, U.D. She was born at 1 Newbiggin Road, Lanchester, which I now know was the workhouse.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Durham Lookup Requests / Briggs 1851 census
« on: Tuesday 10 July 07 21:25 BST (UK)  »
I'm looking for the family of Edward Briggs on the 1851 census, he seems to have evaded my searches, he was born in 1805 in Durham and had a son also called Edward born in 1841, his "wife" was Elizabeth, but they were unmarried at this point so she could still be referring to herself as Murphy.

Help greatly appreciated


Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs / All I have is a thumbnail
« on: Friday 16 March 07 09:00 GMT (UK)  »
This picture was taken of my son a few years back, I have been trying and trying to get the proper picture so I can print it but to no avail as the newspaper that took it don't keep copies.
I know a thumbnail and really small, I've tried making it bigger myself but the pixelation gets pretty bad.
You can remove that strange bag he gas under his right eye too.

Thanking you all for your attempts
