The Common Room / Registering an illegitimate birth
« on: Wednesday 09 June 21 11:25 BST (UK)  »
My cousin has just discovered via DNA that she had a half brother born 1936 died 2017.  She was b 1948

His mother was married & although his birth was registered under her married name it is said that my uncles name is shown as his father on the birth cert.

If that is true - would I be right in saying that my uncle would have had to be present at the birth registration & therefore had full knowledge of the child's birth?

A copy of the birth cert is being forwarded to my cousin.  The child was raised by the woman's husband who knew he was not the child's father

Surrey Lookup Requests / Where is Amelia Whitehead nee Pedgrift after 1851
« on: Friday 18 December 20 22:31 GMT (UK)  »
Joseph Whitehead b Wandsworth 1815 & Amelia Pedgrift baptised 20.1.1822  Norfolk married 1841 Surrey

The couple are found in 1851 - no children. HO107/1568/124/5.  Amelia’s birthplace Norwich

1861 Joseph is shown as married but no Amelia & no children.  RG9/339/79/28

1871/1881 - Joseph is now with Elizabeth Whitcombe & has 3 children by her - no marriage.  Elizabeth dies 1883 & Joseph 1899.  Elizabeth was single in 1861 so if Joseph was a widower there wasn’t anything to stop them marrying.  Their children were all registered as Whitehead.

There is an 1853 death in Marylebone but that Amelia is 50 per GRO online.  Her burial record shows her as 51 which is clearly written and has an address in Marylebone.  However - I would be happier if I could find a matching 1851 entry for her to rule her out as being Amelia b 1822. 

Can anybody find Amelia Whitehead b 1802 on the 1851 census in the ?? Marylebone area?

Can anybody find Amelia Whitehead nee Pedgrift b 1822 Norfolk after 1851?

The Stay Safe Board / Not wearing a face mask
« on: Friday 14 August 20 22:44 BST (UK)  »
I was quite shocked today in Aldi - St Annes (Fylde)  branch.  In the first 2 aisles I counted 8 people without masks - mainly in the 20/30 age group.

2 were couples, a group of 3 young lads and a youth on his own.  I accept some people have hidden disabilities but 8 on the same day in what is quite a small branch of Aldi???

The Lighter Side / Family Search - Log in issues
« on: Wednesday 15 July 20 17:50 BST (UK)  »
Anybody having problems with FS? 

I log in - select to stay logged in for 2 weeks - but if I leave the site even for an hour or so I have to log in again

This is only happening on my iPad - not my desk top PC - and is a recent thing as I have never had a problem before

The Stay Safe Board / General discussion on current situation
« on: Sunday 10 May 20 01:54 BST (UK)  »
I heard that Blackpool was heaving today so I dread to think what's going to happen if any restrictions are eased.  The death toll is still far too high for my liking and with the 10-14 day incubation period for this virus I think another 2 weeks of restrictions would not be that unreasonable.

My neighbour was in shock on Thursday.  He is an engineer and his workplace have been staggering shifts to ensure distancing.  A colleague was sent home sick last Saturday, he was on a ventilator by Monday and died Wednesday.  Confirmed Coronavirus as cause of death

The Stay Safe Board / Banking scam
« on: Friday 08 May 20 11:56 BST (UK)  »
Just been talking to one of the nurses at our GP’s practice.  She told me that a couple of “at risk” patients had received calls from an 0800 number - supposedly a bank.

They were offering to deliver money “at this difficult time”. - no guessing at what came next re bank details etc!!

Worrying thing is - it was only people identified as “at risk” who had received letters from either GP/Consultant or NHS texts to their mobiles.

I have also posted this on the Lancashire board

https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=829551.new#new

I have all other info on this couple except a marriage.  Both were born in Monmouthshire but all 3 of their children were born in Liverpool between 1868-1874.  Henry died in Liverpool 1879

In 1861 Fanny was still in Usk Monmouthshire

Fanny is shown as Frances Lucas on the 1841 census but on all later censuses and on her re-marriage in 1886 & 1906 death reg she is Fanny

She re-married 1886 to Hugh McClements and is shown as a widow on the marriage cert

I am beginning to think they never married

The Common Room / Anybody else having Family Search problems on Apple iPad?
« on: Thursday 19 December 19 23:19 GMT (UK)  »
About 3 IOS updates ago - I could no longer access FS.  Had no problems previously and thought it may have been corrected with the next update - but it hasn’t

If I input www.familysearch.org - I get the main page without problem

However - if I then select “Search” then “Records” The search page loads then fades out.  It then reloads and fades again then the following message appears

A problem repeatedly occurred on https://www.familysearch.org/search/.  In the URL it shows Web page crashed

iPad is running IOS 13.3 which is the latest update
