Hi All

Looking for a burial of William Pratt died June 22 1893 at 12 Railway Terrace, North Ormesby, Middlesborough.  Assumed Anglican so would he be buried at the Church (is it St Cuthbert's?) or the local Cemetery.  ???

His wife Ann or Annie (born 1848) is still alive in 1911 census and in Middlesborough so presume she may also be buried in same place.

Any suggestions?

Many thanks

 ??? Hi everyone

Can anybody enlighten me re applying for a birth certificate from the UK for a Canadian ancestor (grandfather) of my daughter in law born in Windsor, Ontario.  I have the short form birth cert but need the long form one to find exact details.  My daughter in laws mother lives in Cape Town, South Africa so correspondence except by email is difficult.

Canada Lookup Requests Completed / Edward Hunt passenger list Feb 1918 COMPLETED
« on: Sunday 24 January 10 18:28 GMT (UK)  »
Hi everyone

Having a problem confirming a sailing to Halifax, Nova Scotia from Liverpool England.  I have an Edward Henry Hunt sailing on 2nd Feb 1918 on board SS Olympic he was in the CEF returning home for discharge in March 1918 having been wounded in WW1 France.  He married his wife Florence Ethel Netherclift in Aug 1917 and had a son Harold Edward on 27th Dec 1917.  I believe they all sailed together on this ship but have tried searching Ancestry and got confusing results, ie and Harold Edwart Hunt (which is probably the one), Florence Ethel Hunt (probably the right one as only one listed) and Edward Hunt.  I just need to know if they all sailed on the same boat.  They destination was Toronto and then on to Windsor.

Thanks

The Lighter Side / New online game World of Rootschat!
« on: Friday 24 February 06 22:24 GMT (UK)  »
Just been struck by a sudden brainwave and as I was replying to a post.  How about a game called World of Rootschat.  You know where you play the role of detective etc ..... and have to search various worlds or towns cities on quests for the various scrolls, parish registers census info etc.  Collect gold and trade it to see images of ancestors etc.  Any thoughts?

« on: Friday 24 February 06 20:55 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all

Just had a sudden thought  :o  What made people baptise their children on certain dates, eg a month later or Christmas Day etc or even as adults.  Also when they chose to get married.  Would love to computer som statistics on that rather like the rootschat variety.  Any suggestions or comments?

Cheers

Surrey Completed Look up Requests / 1891 HUNT in Frimley/Yorktown
« on: Friday 24 February 06 19:28 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all

Trying to solve a conundrum with 2 brothers:-

Edward HUNT marries Ann STROUD (born Burghfield, Berkshire) abt 1891 to 1893 as first child is 1893.  Trying to find if he has married.  If not then he may be with his father and mother Geroge HUNT and Mary.

Edward HUNT has a brother called Charles Arthur HUNT (b1862 in York Town, Frimley) who marries Ann (possibly Ford) bef 1889 as first child Evelin Mary A Hunt born 1889 and second child Charles E Hunt born Jan 1891.  Charles died dec qtr 1891.  Both Anns come from Berkshire and there is some confusion that Ann Ford remarried to Edward the brother of Charles!  Any help would be much appreciated.

Many thanks in advance.
