Cornwall / Peter GARLAND
« on: Tuesday 29 September 20 14:34 BST (UK)  »

London and Middlesex / Gertrude & Thomas COOK
« on: Thursday 23 July 20 12:30 BST (UK)  »
Gertrude & Thomas COOK were born ca 1910 and, in 1960, were living in Enfield. Thomas had served in the Royal Navy until 1955. They had at least two sons, one born in 1942 and the other, I believe, a few years later. I'm trying to find their marriage, and should be most grateful if anyone can help.

Herefordshire / John AMIS(S)
« on: Tuesday 14 April 20 10:20 BST (UK)  »

Susannah AMISS was baptized in St Owen on 30 May 1756, parents John & Mary

I have been unable to find a marriage for John AMISS and Mary XXXX. Can anyone help, please?

Scotland / Nancy CARROLL
« on: Sunday 05 April 20 14:55 BST (UK)  »
In her Will, Mary CARROLL (see separate thread) mentions her sister, Nancy, and Nancy’s children (un-named).  A search for the birth of Nancy CARROLL has drawn a complete blank, as has a search for her marriage. Likewise, searching for Agnes, Anne, Hannah etc has been equally fruitless.
Nancy is not listed with the family in 1911 so, presumably, was born after the Census.

Can anyone help, please?

Technical Help / Windows updates
« on: Thursday 03 October 19 15:08 BST (UK)  »
I keep being informed that my version of Windows 10 will no longer be supported after November.

Every time I attempt to update, the process stalls around 60% and my computer becomes completely unresponsive. Eventually ,in despair, I do what I am continually being told not to do, I switch off. When I switch back on, the update continues until about 80%, when it stalls again. Eventually, I switch off and re-start, and the update continues up to 89% when it stalls again. At this point, nothing I do gets the update going again and, when I switch off and restart, all the alterations are reversed and the computer is restored to its original state. Can anyone help me to complete the update, please?

Scotland / Mary CARROLL
« on: Saturday 28 September 19 22:05 BST (UK)  »
Mary CARROLL was born somewhere in Scotland between 13.01.1905 and 12.01.1906. I have found 9 instances of that name in that period, so I need to eliminate 8 of them. The lady I seek was still a spinster in 1939.
If anyone has a Mary CARROLL whose birth date fits and who married (or died) before 1940, I should be most grateful to know of her.

The Common Room / Anno pred.

England / Luke BUNTER
« on: Thursday 27 June 19 10:07 BST (UK)  »
Luke BUNTER m Jane WILLS in Mylor, Cornwall on 20 Feb 1722.

I have been unable to find his baptism in Cornwall OPC, Findmypast, FreeReg and Family Search, these last 3 on a country-wide basis. Can anyone help, please?

Cornwall / Luke BUNTER
« on: Wednesday 26 June 19 12:26 BST (UK)  »
                     Luke BUNTER m Jane WILLS on 20 Feb 1722 in Mylor

1. Where, and to whom, was he born? I can find no trace of him.

2. Probate was granted in 1748 in Exeter on the will of a Luke BUNTER, almost certainly the same man, but I cannot find his burial. The will might have been destroyed in WWII but, if not, where can I locate it?

If anyone can help with the above, I should be most grateful.
