New Zealand Completed Requests / Charles Fergussen
« on: Saturday 04 February 17 04:23 GMT (UK)  »
Looking for Charles or Charlie Ferguson. Very little information about this individual. I know he was in the Stirling area in the Sth Island circa 1930s and was working on a chicory farm.I believe he left the area about 1938 to 39. We are assuming he may have been late teens 18 yrs to perhaps late 20s .He may have left the area and gone to war. I am aware that info here is very very limiting but any clue could be of help. Thanks  Hereford

Durham / Dawsons to America
« on: Monday 07 March 16 02:59 GMT (UK)  »
Hi hope someone can help. have been researching the Dawson's of Durham for a while .I have a record of a 1650 to 1720 John Dawson and wife 1660-1725 Annam Keenliside moving from England to the Isle of Wight Virginia US.I think round about 1700s. They must of left a son John 1683 behind .Just wondering if this is correct information . Not knowing English History at that time I am unsure as to why they would have left and left their son. I am assuming they had other children but can not find any more information . Thank you Hereford.

Sailed on the ship Neptune. Arrived Australia 1841 married Michael Honan an Irish convict. They  had 2 or 3 daughters One being Anastasia whom is my G G Grandmother. There is very little info that I can find but was hoping that her early life ,family, where lived/born  and anything else could be discovered.

Waterford / Honan
« on: Monday 12 January 15 02:32 GMT (UK)  »
I am trying to locate information about this family pre Australia . Michael Honan senior birth I am estimating about 1790. Had 3 sons that I know of perhaps more children. Thomas-b-1805,Patrick -b-1815 and Michael jnr b-1811.Trying to find out the Irish History of this family. Who was Michael seniors wife? The 3 sons were tried in 1834 in Waterford and sentenced to 7 years and sent to Australia aboard the Hero .If anyone out there knows any of this family's history or are related to this family  or can point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it. Thank you Hereford

Northumberland / Dawsons of Durham
« on: Saturday 08 November 14 01:32 GMT (UK)  »
Hi Hope someone can help. I am trying to find the missing piece of my Dawson family. Hugh Dawson was the son of Oliver and Jane Dawson. Oliver born 1792 Allendale  and Jane 1806 Shotley
They had Hugh who was born in 1829.His sister Hannah emigrated to the States with her husband George Herron and his 2 sisters Jane and Elizabeth along with youngest brother Oliver (My G G grandfather)and their 2 husbands emigrated to NZ there is no record of what happened to Hugh after Jane and Elizabeth emigrated which was about 1860 .In the 1851 census his occupation is coke burner.The family were living at Kenton Durham at this time. He was 22. I have found a marriage record of a Hugh Dawson marriage in 1862 in Hexham to a Elizabeth McGregor or another name of Tamar Dickinson and I know Hexham is an area where my Dawson Ancestors lived .Another census record is of a Hugh and Elizabeth living in Staffordshire. in 1871 and occupation is Coal miner . I am assuming Coke burner and coal miner are a connected occupation. Just unsure if this is the Hugh that I am looking for as it has got Staffordshire as place of birth but his age at time of census matches. Hope this all makes sense. I know what has happened to all the siblings except this one. I am wanting to find the final chapter of this generation of Dawson's Thanks for any help Hereford

United States of America / Irish minister in Nth Dakota
« on: Monday 04 March 13 02:51 GMT (UK)  »
I am researching my G Grandfather Thomas Edward Turner who with his wife and family arrived in Ellis Island 1908 and traveled to Mohall  North Dakota.According to the Ellis records they were going to stay with a Rev W J Walker.Where would I be able to locate records of him in that area as i understand from Family Stories that he ministered in a German settlement . My Grandmother records this as Minnesota. Also would there be any record of Thomas been badly burned in a fire and having to go back to Ireland . Is there an old newspaper site that I could access for that time in the USA? many thanks Hereford.
