Family History Beginners Board / Could someone please help
« on: Sunday 09 January 22 22:47 GMT (UK)  »
I'm trying to find out where I can ask about my Grans adoption certificate.

One of my brothers said my gran Eveline had a birth certificate.
I asked him if he knew any details on I'm looking for her birth name.
He replied back and said he couldn't remember. And said she was Jewish and married into the Jones family.
Well I know my gran Eveline wasn't Jewish. And I know she married into the Jones family because she married Alfred Evan Jones.

I have a few helpers.  One gave me an idea.  And said maybe it was a adoption certificate.

Can anyone please tell me who do I ask and what/how do I word it?
I've never done this before.
Please if anyone can help me I would really appreciate it.

I.hope this isn't against the rules?

Thank you for your help and your time.

Wales / abergele hospital
« on: Monday 02 August 21 08:24 BST (UK)  »
Hello everyone.
I'm not sure if I have the correct part on this site.
I'm just wondering if anyone could help on something please.
My grandad Alfred Evan Jones. (Born in England)  1914.
He joined the army in 1939.classed as fit for the army.  In 1940 he was suddenly discharged classed as unfit for any military service.   Which I'm not sure why.
But my mum told me that her dad was in the same hospital as her in abergele hospital Wales.  From what I can understand. She said her dad's ward was back to back with hers.
My grandad went home from the hospital. But my mum stayed in because she had a plaster cast from her waste down. She had a TB spine.

What I'm trying to find out is why would my grandad Alfred Evan Jones be discharged from the army and sent to abergele hospital.
I don't know how to find out anything like this.
As I've been trying to find out other things  connected to myself and my mum.
I was in Conway for a short time. In 1960s. But I don't know why.
And I'm trying to find out about a photo of the children outside in the beds in abergele hospital.  Apparently my mum is one of the girls.

Anyway  if anyone can help me with anything I would really appreciate it.
I don't know what else to do.

Thank you again for your help and your time.


Wales / Photo

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.

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
