The Common Room / Who knows this young girl
« on: Thursday 09 August 18 08:06 BST (UK)  »
This photo of a young girl was taken in about the 1920s.  She's probably deceased now, but she may have children or grandchildren who are still alive.  Does anyone recognise her?

Derbyshire / FATHERS OF "ILLEGITIMATE" CHILDREN 1908
« on: Wednesday 15 January 14 01:26 GMT (UK)  »
My grandmother was born "illegitimately" in Belper in 1908. 

Is it likely to be possible to track down a father's name?

Laois (Queens) / QUEEN'S COLORADO?
« on: Tuesday 14 January 14 04:35 GMT (UK)  »
I've come across Queen's Colorado in the 1901 Irish Census.  I've Googled it to no avail.  Was there such a place or is a mistaken translation of the written "Queens County"?

Irish Language / TRANSLATING A REFERENCE TO SEAMUS O CATHASAIGH
« on: Monday 06 January 14 02:42 GMT (UK)  »
I appreciate the help I've received in translating Seamus' 1911 census return.  I've now come across a biography which states that:

"Mac ba ea é le William Casey, cléireach. I dtuairisc in Sinn Féin 19 Lúnasa 1911 ar a ‘bhainis airgid’ deirtear gurbh é aonmhac Uilliam Uí Chathasaigh as an Muileann Cearr é. Phós sé Kathleen Weir, haitéir arbh fheirmeoir a hathair, ar 19 Lúnasa 1886 in Eaglais Naomh Seosamh, Bóthar Berkeley, Baile Átha Cliath."

Using the Google translator, it's not clear to me whether William Casey is his father or only son or both. 

Also the translator suggests he "married Kathleen Weir , a farmer whose father Hatter".  Should that read that her father was also a farmer?

Dublin / CONNOLLY, KELLY AND CO
« on: Wednesday 01 January 14 02:16 GMT (UK)  »
I'd appreciate any information on Connolly, Kelly and Co, a vegetable and fruit wholesaler (and retailer) that operated in Dublin in the 1940s and 1950s and perhaps early 1960s.  One of the owners was my grandfather-in-law, Thomas Kelly. 

I've been trying to track down information on the company, but apart from the name I've not been able to find anything.

Derbyshire / PLEASE BE SPECIFIC
« on: Saturday 11 February 12 02:16 GMT (UK)  »
There are 24 pages of chat on the Derbyshire site.

It would be useful for those of us new to roots chat and trying to skim the 24 pages for topics of interest if authors could include a surname or a place name in the subject heading.     

Thus, the "generic" subject heading "Death Certificate look up" might be more usefully shown as "SMITH - Death Cert Look up". 

Or "Birth look up" might better be "BROWN - birth look up".

Or "John's profession?" might be better "JOHN SMITH's Profession?"

Nottinghamshire / IS THIS MAN A STUART?
« on: Friday 03 February 12 01:35 GMT (UK)  »
The attached photo belonged to my grandmother (Marie Stuart, born in Belper 1906, migrated to Australia 1923 and died in 1955). 

The photo was placed on the Derbyshire site in late January, but it occurred to me that the Stuart family has links in Nottinghamshire and it may be useful to reload it on the Nottinghamshire site too. 

I don't belief the photo portrays Marie's stepfather (Hiram Heaps).  Apart from the likelihood that he would be too young for the photo which seems to be of 1930s vintage, the child is out of place - my grandmother's half-sister, Doris Heaps, migrated to Australia in 1925 and the only other child, Aaron died in the early 1900s.

This leads me to believe it may be one of my grandmother's Stuart uncles.

Any help identifying the persons in the photo would be most helpful!
