Hi all

Has anybody tried searching for a company rather than a person in the directories on ancestry or FindMyPast?

England / Person died in one county buried in another ?
« on: Thursday 23 August 18 12:29 BST (UK)  »
Hi all,

Not sure where to post this.

From doing some searches, how would I go about looking for info about someone dying in Cheltenham and being buried in Tilton on the Hill (Leicestershire).

What I have so far is a Charles woods Curtis was on the 1911 census living in Cheltenham. I can see a Charles W Curtis on the GRO index died in Cheltenham 1st quarter 1915. As he was born in Leicestershire, I have had a look on the parish records on familysearch, and a burial is recorded at tilton on the hill on January 19th 1915. Tilton village website has a date of death as January 13th 1915, but has death at Halstead (next door village to tilton).

Any suggestions

Regards

Fife / Anne headland born 1845 kilconquhar?
« on: Saturday 30 December 17 13:32 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all

I am doing some research on my Headland family and am trying to confirm information on a Anne headland, daughter of David headland and Ann edmondson.

The only info to date I have are from the 1851 census which refers to her as Ann Headland born 1845 kilconquhar. By 1861 they were in Harrogate and place of birth in census just says Scotland.

Any help gratefully received

Yorkshire (West Riding) Lookup Requests / William/George Headland
« on: Wednesday 12 April 17 10:50 BST (UK)  »
Hi all

I have been searching my headland family and have found a branch that ended up in Denaby Main. I have found the kids baptism records on genuki transcription of mexborough Methodist baptisms. On there is the baptism of William headland born 02/06/1898, but I can't find any other information on him.

On the 1901 census, there is no William, but there is a george headland age 4. Not seen a baptism record for him or found birth record. The only other information I have found is for a george headland in the ww1 army records listed as being 19 in 1918 and from danby Yorkshire.

Is William/George the same person. I have found no other information so far. I have found info for 2 other brothers and 3 sisters so far.

Regards

Hi all

I have found a copy of a will that is listed as being in the Famous People records catalogue. How would you find out why they were famous? I have searched for the person but can't see what he was famous for.

Hi all.

I am trying to find a death record for a Benjamin Curtis, born 1862 in skeffington, Leicestershire and died in Canada around 1890, we think. The only other known info in Canada was that his son was born in north cypress in manatoba in 1889.

Thanks in advance
