US Lookup Requests / DAVISON family went to USA and back
« on: Thursday 23 June 11 11:52 BST (UK)  »
Can anyone advise me please where to find passenger lists from County Durham to Pennysylvania USA in the 1880s
Helping a friend research his family tree we've come across his gt gran ANN DAVISON (maiden name unknown)who was born Bishop Auckland 1862.
In 1891 she is in Bishop Auckland work house listed as married with her children:
George   b County Durham   1882
Ann         b Pennysylvania     1886 British subject
Sarah      b. Pennysylvania   1888 British subject
Charlotte b.County Durham  1890 (my friend's gran)
It seems the family must have gone to the USA after  the birth of George  and returned before the birth of Charlotte.
I haven't been able to find her husband anywhere.
Any help gratefully accepted.

I'm trying to find the parents of Roseanna Ritchie who was born 1905 Lanchester, County Durham, for a friend, without her having to buy a birth certificate.  I can't find her on the 1911 census at all. She married Alfred Hayden in 1928 Lanchester.

Durham / Rodger Ibbetson's marriage
« on: Saturday 31 July 10 17:59 BST (UK)  »
I'm helping a friend with her family research but we've come to a dead end with her great grandparents marriage as he is listed on BMD as married December 1862 Darlington but unfortunately there are 3  bridegrooms and only 2 brides on the page, the missing one is Ann who married Rodger.
I can't turn her up by a search of all the Anns married  then.The only Ann unaccounted for was Ann Rudd married December 1862 at Stockton.Yet it's listed amongst the Dalington ones on a different page.
Is the only way to find her name by sending for the marriage certificate ?
She is listed on the census returns as born Ricknall, County Durham.
Any advice would be much appreciated thank you.

Can anyone tell me please if/where I can get my late father's army records ? He was from County Durham in England.  I have hardly any information, only that he was at a training camp in Cumbria, England, in 1939 and was stationed in Essex,England  in 1946. In between those dates he was in India at one time. That's all I have to go on,not much I know.

My gt gt grandad's brother was transported to Tasmania as a convict in 1842. I am trying to find another brother who may have followed him  to Tasmania, from Essex, but not as a convict, between 1842 and 1851, and settled there.
Please could anyone tell me how and where to start looking for him ?
