The Common Room / Death records

Sorry if I am dim, do we really have every death record, not have been destroyed by the war in London? No page missing on registration of death around 1910s to 1920s?

Happy New Year!

I might be a bit idiot - is there an app to remind you the anniversaries of birth marriage death of loved deceased ones - simply alert you from the app?

Wales / Blodwin Jones
« on: Friday 17 March 17 20:30 GMT (UK)  »

I am confused on the Jones family. I have the marriage cert of Blodwin Jones, age 19, spinster married on 23rd June 1913 at Pengam, Bedwelley, Monmouth to Edwin Luffman. Blodwin's father was William Jones,a coalminer. Blodwin's address was 20 Greenfield, New Tredegar.

I found Blodwin on 1911 census with the same address 20 Greenfield, lived with her parents William and Mary. They married for 34 years and have one child, I assumed its Blodwin, look at age gaps between parents and daughter.

Going back to 1901, I found her as a granddaughter of William and Mary! Along with William, Mary, Blodwin, was son David William and his wife Jane daughter in law and another granddaughter Mary E Jones, I assumed Mary E was a daughter of David and Jane.

But on 1911 census, David and Jane lived next door to William and Mary, stated they married for 10 years and have no children!

I ordered the birth cert of Blodwin Jones with the help of death record of Blodwin Luffman, stated her birth date and I thought it was easy to find her but no GRO couldn't find her!

I think William and Mary and David and Jane were confused - they may not sure in 1911 but more clearly in 1901.

Without Welsh parish records on ancestry, I am stuck and confused!

Can you do some magic please?

Gloucestershire / Ledbury, Gloucestershire
« on: Sunday 20 March 16 18:25 GMT (UK)  »

I discovered on 1911 census that my single great grandmother and a bachelor great grandfather both lived on their own in Ledbury before they got married. Annie Goulder was training for nurse and midwifery and William Harrison-Osborne was training for chemist. Is there a training place for these occupation in Ledbury around 1900s? I can't find anything on Google. Its just that William came from Scotter, Lincolnshire and Annie came from not long way Tidenham, Gloucestershire - such a small place Ledbury to chose for training for some reason. I would love to know how they met!!

The Common Room / Reading across in family history book
« on: Wednesday 02 March 16 19:56 GMT (UK)  »
I think I am a bit strange today!

I have loads of documents and photos on my computer and I need to put them together in a book along with texts/captions - its bit like a newspaper style - I need to put them in odd places and add captions underneath.

I have Word but strangely it won't do as it told! Typically, Word on 3 different computers are different versions, a bit frustrating, not knowing which version of Word is better. I tried having a go at that but bit of each are best.

The book need to be Landscape and reading left to right and more than 2 photos or docs on one page.

Any idea how to do it easily? I want to use Boots but I don't think they can print documents! IS there a software to make a book and which is best?


Family History Programs, Tree Organisation, Presentation / Family Tree chart
« on: Wednesday 02 March 16 19:40 GMT (UK)  »
This is a bit odd

I do have genealogy program and ancestry but I just want to do a simple 10 generation family tree chart on A4 paper in writing! Obviously its squashed but that's what I needed. I just want names with age at death only. The names should be vertical, not horizontal. Is there a chart available where I can fill in names & ages in plain boxes, somewhere?
