Durham / mary gibson
« on: Tuesday 17 December 19 11:03 GMT (UK)  »
im searching for any information about Mary Gibson. I know her parents are Josephine Murray (Nee McCormick) Josephine's year of birth 1930, father Bernard Murray. Lived in Durham area. 

Iím searching for the birth certificate of my great great grandfather Patrick Conroy.
His marriage certificate shows that when he married in 1867 he was 23 y o. He married Anner (Hannah) Naylor and his fatherís name was Murt. I assume that is short for Murtagh. I have also seen it recorded as Mart.
Although married in Newcastle upon Tyne he previously lived in Bradford.
1881 Census shows he was living in Newcastle and was born in Bradford. Year of birth 1844.
1891 Census shows him as Peter Conroy same wife and children living in Newcastle and born Ireland. Year of birth 1840.
1901 Census shows him as Peter Conray, same wife and children although year of birth is 1839
His army service record shows him as Patrick Conroy born in the Parish of Mountmellick, near the town of Bradford in the County of Queens (Laois). Year of birth 1840.
A bit confusing but I think maybe he was born in Mountmellick before moving to Bradford. If he was born in Bradford why would he even mention Mountmellick?  Iím not sure why theyíd mix them together like this.

Iím looking for my great great grandfather. Sadly I know very little about the family at all. My grandfather has been a family secret and after 11 years of searching Iíve only just found him. Cyril Bennett. Born 1906 Newcastle on Tyne.

The man Iím looking for lived in the Newcastle/Durham area. Charles Joseph Bennett is his name. He has a son Charles Henry year of birth 1879.

Any help greatfully appreciated.

Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Y chromosome test
« on: Friday 27 July 18 14:01 BST (UK)  »
Hi All,
         I've been looking for living family of my grandad over the last few years and have finally discovered an individual who may be my cousin.
In order to show that we share the same grandad I'm thinking of having a Y Chromosome test done. Has anyone had this test done and if so can you recommend a company who i could contact to carry out the test.

England / search for great grandmothers parents
« on: Tuesday 15 May 18 16:15 BST (UK)  »
Iím trying to trace the parents of my great grandmother Edith Williment who married Wilson May on 26/9/1892.
I found a B.Cert for Edith 1871 born Norwich and I contacted the GRO to obtain it: Vol 4b, Page 156, Qtr 2 but they have been unable to find it. The marriage certificate shows her father to be Jacob Williment a labourer. The marriage taking place in Newcastle upon Tyne. As I canít get her B.Cert I donít know her motherís name.
The 1861 census shows a Jacob Williment who is a labourer in Norwich with a wife Sophia. Unfortunately Edith is not on this Census as sheís not yet born. I canít find Jacob Williment on the 1881 and 1891 census and therefore canít make a link with the Jacob Iíve found.
Anyone with any advice? Thanks in advance.
