Wales / Photo
« on: Tuesday 29 September 20 13:48 BST (UK)  »
Hello again everyone.
I'm sorry if I put this on the wrong one and if I've already asked. 
What I'm trying to find out is where I can get a clearer picture of the children in abergele hospital Wales.
The reason why I'm asking is because is because my mum was in abergele hospital Wales when she was around 3 until the age of 5.  My mum told me that she was having to lie on her back for quite a few years. 
I do have a copy of the children in abergele hospital.  But I got it from there site a few years ago.   I've tried to find the New paper who took the photo.  I've even sent a email to the BBC.  I've not heard anything back.   
I've tried attachment on this site. But I get the file is too big.
If anyone can help me with this I would really appreciate it.  As I think my mum is in the 1st bed facing the camera.
Thank you again for your help.
And I'm sorry if I've posted this on the wrong one.
Many thanks to you all

Stirlingshire / Help - Eveline Jones or Shulman
« on: Monday 20 July 20 12:41 BST (UK)  »
Hello I'm not sure if I have already asked this question in the past.  If so I really apologise.  At thè moment I'm trying to find out everything I can about my late gran eveline Jones.  Jones is her married name.  I know her as Eveline shulman.  There's a few things that I'm in need of some help with.
My gran Eveline passed away in Stirling hospital scottland 1998 . What i don't know is what happened to her belongings. As no family was precent. I'm trying to find out where I can get this information.

The 2nd one is really strange.
When my gran Eveline married my grandad Alfred evan Jones her name was Eveline shulman. 
But on my mum's birth certificate it says Eveline Jones formerly hill.
Now I'm wondering where it came from.
According to the Manchester register office.  My mum's birth certificate is correct and the name of hill is eaither my grans birth name or she was married before she married Alfred Evan Jones.  Now I don't know if she was married before she married Alfred Evan Jones. Or is it her birth name. 
From what I can understand my gran Eveline was adopted by David Joseph Shulman and his wife Annie.

If anyone can help me solve this id  really appreciate it.

Thank you for your help and time.

« on: Friday 15 November 19 16:33 GMT (UK)  »
Hello again every one.  It's been ages since I've asked for help.
I'm not sure who can help me with this. It's a bit like a small shopping list.
This is for my hubby phil. What I'm trying to do is find out a few things that I'm having trouble with. I.seem to hit a dead end.
What I'm trying to find is anything to do with Burma there's a name something like chindits.  My hubby father was helping lay some gas pipes down. One.was.on fire.ready to explode  when  moved and. Coverd his mate.  He.was.Give a medel for bravery.
He was in the Lancashire fuslelires. Ww2. He was also lost in the jungle for 2 years  Phil my hubby thought it was 5years.
So what I am trying to do is find out anything I possibly can about his dad.
All we have is 3 photo's.  That was sent via Facebook family members.
One of the 3 is a reunion for the fusillers. It's not very clear. But we can just about see Sam  ( my hubbies dad) 
If there's anything you could help me with I really would appreciate it as I'm trying so hard to help my hubby.  He's so proud of his father. And really would like something about him.  I've asked members of his family. But it seems that they don't want to help.  Even though they know more than we do.
If there's anything else you might need to know I will tell anyone who will help  if I know it.if I don't Phil might know.
I know his dad's details like dob and his name.
His name is Samuel Richard Lucas. Born 14th march 1915. He was married February  1940 I think 17th.  He was born in Manchester. 
He passed away 12th of August 1999. He married Irene Miriam ditchfield.
Her birthday is 28th of September 1920

I hope you can help me with my Quest.
Thank you everyone for your help and time
Yours sincerely

Hello everyone.
I'm not exactly sure where to post this or what site I should be using.

What I'm trying to find out is where I can get the full details of a photo I have from when my mum was in Abergele in hospital. It was then known as Abergele asylum. 
I'm not exactly  the age my mum was there  only for what my mum told me. Maybe she was told by her mum I'm not sure on.
My mum told me that she was in Abergele for 5 year's.  Most of the time she was on her back.and had a plaster cast from her waste  down. Up to half way down her leg. 
Apparently it was due to a spine injury. Being thrown from a wheel Barrow. 

The photo I have now I found last year.  If I had found it before my mum passed away she would have been able to tell me what I'm trying to find out. 

Some where in the photo my mum is in one of the beds.  I'm not sure where.
It could be possible she's one of the girls nearest to the camera.  There's one lying down and has a plaster cast on her right leg.  Which is where my mum's was.

What I'm trying to do is find a clear copy of it so I can see if the girl is my mum and hopefully my auntie can tell me.
She as seen the photo and apparently her mum had the same one.

From what I can understand. My mum had light colour hair when she was younger.

So if there's anything anyone can help me with I really would appreciate it.

Thank you again for your time and help.
Dorothy

Ps
 I got the photo off pintrest. And put Abergele. I didn't even know about the photo had any connections with my mum.
I just wanted to see what the hospital was like.
Thank you again for your help and time.

Lancashire / manchester local photo collection
« on: Saturday 23 February 19 09:50 GMT (UK)  »
Good morning everyone.


1st I would like to apologise if i'm putting this post on the wrong part of the group.
2nd  I would like to ask if there is anyone who can point me in the wright direction for a link as I have tried manchester local collection. There are so many places I don't know where to start.


What I'm trying to find is a area and houses where my great gran lived  and also where my gran lived before she was married.  I understand there might not be any numbers on doors. How ever I was kindly sent a photo of an area where my gran lived.  On the photo  it has 2 numbers on the front of the buildings. One was 171 upperbrook street cholton on Medlock Manchester and number 98.
The address I'm looking for is 192 upper brook Street cholton on Medlock Manchester. That is where my gran lived before she married my grandad.


The next one I'm looking for is 59.Rusholme road cholton on Medlock Manchester.
That is where my great gran lived before and after she had my grandad. 
Apparently she moved to sale in wythenshawe  some years later after my grandparents got married. I'm not sure what year.




If there's anything anyone can help me with I really would appreciate it .I just keep going round in circles.


Thank all for your time and help.

Can anyone tell me how long it takes to  receive  army record's from when you apply for them?

I applied for my grandads army record's on the 21st of November. I sent  everything off to the army record's department in Scotland.

I've been trying to get answers from them.to see when I will recieve them. But I'm not getting any replys back.
My hubby says he hopes it's not one of these places where you get conned like a fake place.

I told him I have the address on the letter and the form where I was told to send everything to.

If anyone can help me I'd really appreciate it.
Thank you again for your time

Ps
I received a email from the army record's department in Scotland afew months ago just before I started to save up for my grandads army record's. 

By the sounds of it. They might have my grandads army record's. 
What I don't understand is this. If they have his name and date of birth. Why is it taking long.?

I have  attached a copy of the email I received. Hopefully someone can help?

World War Two / Help with Grandads Army Record A.E. Jones
« on: Friday 07 December 18 01:46 GMT (UK)  »
Hi everyone.
I'm in need of some help or advice.
I don't know if anyone can help with this. But I thought there is no harm in asking.


A few weeks ago I applied for my grandads army record's. I sent a email to the army record's department in Scotland about the form I had to fill in. Because I was confused on which parts  even though  I  read it over afew times. 


I also received a email from the army record's department in Scotland. Saying that they have a A.E Jones dob 27/9/14.  On there file's . But cant be 100 % sure  if it is my until grandfather until they call up the file's.


Apparently  I'm classed as the living next of kin because he's my grandad .
I have sent 2 emails  to them asking about my grandads army record's. Just to see when I will recieve them .and explained about our post man usually  post's  letters in the wrong doors..


I haven't had any replys back from them.

So I thought I'd ask if anyone can help me on this? 


Because  it is a lot of money for me especially when it was my birthday money.
I don't mind spending  money on something I want.  I only hope  that the one they have on file is my grandad.
If it isn't  I have lost my money.  Even though they said they wouldn't except any payments until they have the correct one .
 Which is confusing  because on the form  it says if unsuccessful there don't refund money.




Please can anyone help me with this? 


Thank you again for your time and help

Family History Beginners Board / Confustion
« on: Saturday 22 September 18 12:07 BST (UK)  »
Hi everyone.
I'm slightly confused about something.  Can anyone please explain something to me. I might sound a bit daft.
But I just can't seem to get round this.
As everyone knows I've been doing my family background for a while now. And with a lot of help I've found out alot about my family which I had no idea about.  When I got my grandparents marriage certificate.  It had my grandfathers   dad's name on. Which began to confuse me the reason for that was because  my grandads birth name is Alfred evan Jones.  His mum's name is Frances Jones.  Which would be obvious.  Even though  she wasn't married before or after my grandad was born  on my grandparents marriage certificate it says the name of my grandads birth father.  Which is john jones.  I know there's a john jones in my great gran Frances Jones family  but it was further on before she was born.  John jones  the one I know about  is the son of James Jones who married a lady called mary Taylor in 1927. They had 3 son's  George. John and Peter.

This is where I'm  slightly confused. 
I have been told that  my grandads father was found in the bathroom. I assume he passed away.  He was living with my great gran Frances Jones.  But  she wasn't married to him.  So how can it be possible 

That my great gran Frances Jones has the same surname Jones as John jones  if they wasn't married?   

And also  acording to what I've been reading.  John jones  is my maternal great grandfather. And my great gran Frances Jones is my maternal great granmother. 

I have been told that john jones is my great grandad.

I don't even know what the difference is between  maternal and paternal.  I was told what it was but I just really can't  remember. 


If there's anyone who can help me with these I would really appreciate it.
Thank you all again for your time and help.

Dorothy
