Immigrants & Emigrants - General / De Zee Ploeg
« on: Thursday 08 March 18 17:31 GMT (UK)  »
Does anyone know of a passenger list for this ship that left Holland  in 1817 for America but ended up in Bergen Norway ?  It has a fascinating story which is well documented.

Aberdeenshire / James Strachan shoemaker Aberdeen
« on: Thursday 24 October 13 14:18 BST (UK)  »
I have hit a brick wall as James Strachan is a common name! he was a shoemaker in Virgina st, married Margaret Adam  Banchory 1824. died Aberdeen 1842 aged 46.  I can't find an appropriate birth for him.  are there clues for me in the shoemaker trade?  is he likely to be the son of a shoemaker?  James was Dean of the Guild at one time according to memoirs.

I am trying to find William Kennedy in 1841, he was not living with his family  in Scott St, and i suspect he was in Hull prison for insolvency, as listed in the London gazette a year later in 1842.  is it likely that he was  in prison all this time and is there a listing anywhere in the 1841 for the prison inmates on the census?

Yorkshire (East Riding & York) / Keyingham gravestones
« on: Saturday 25 May 13 10:15 BST (UK)  »
Does anyone know what happened to the gravestones in Keyingham?  I know a lot are stood up around the church yard but I couldn't find Wright or Escreets, as were listed in the wonderful memorial inscription booklet for Keyingham.  Just interested  that's all.

trying to find any memorial inscriptions or graves for people listed as buried in Blackburn early 1800's.  I don't live far away but don't know the area.  in particular clayton St methodist Chapel and St Mary the virgin (old church) 

Yorkshire (West Riding) / otley volunteer engineers
« on: Monday 28 May 12 13:07 BST (UK)  »
my ancestor was a corporal with the otley volunteer engineers and buried with military honours in 1883.   Anyone know anything about this organisation. ?  the article says he was buried in Otley cemetery but i can't find his name on the listings for this, but i have at least found out more about him from this article in the Ilkley gazette.  he died aged 32 and was an "active member" - what would he do?   he ran the George Inn in Otley at the time of his death. . -

hello.      I am researching in to the Fosters in Sculcoates early 1800's.  How do I do this?   my parents still live in Hull so I can easily go and look at things - but where do I find births, deaths, marriages etc?    thank you.
