London and Middlesex / looking for John Yeo
« on: Thursday 14 September 23 15:00 BST (UK)  »
hello all
 not sure if any one can help me with the 1921 census.
If you can I am looking for a John Yeo on the 1911 census he is living at 93 Kilravock Street, Queen's Park, Harrow Road, Paddington   in the home of  Henrietta Batchelor born 1859 St Pancras .
 John was born abt 1910 and is down as a Nurse Child (Nurse) I am trying to find if he is still a round in 1921 as the John I am looking for is in New Zealand by then, he was put in an orphanage abt 1914 I know its not a lot to go on if he is still in the UK I can cross him of my list.
thank you for reading this kind regards Sue

Hi I have never done research in New Zealand,  can you tell me how easy it is to find records on line.
 Do you have the same information on wedding and birth certificate  as we do in the UK.
If a person born in 1911 in Auckland was put in an orphanage can you access records.

All I have is a name  John Anderson  date of birth 1911 to go on.
can any one give me a clue what sites are available .

kind regards Sue

Lancashire / In search of Eliza Watts Dempsey
« on: Tuesday 04 July 23 15:14 BST (UK)  »
Hi  all
I think I have tried most places but can not find Eliza, I know she married
Alfred Benjamin Kelly in Aug 1871 Manchester.
Eliza father name was Thomas Dempsey, I have not been able to find anything before that.
Eliza may have died at some point before 1886 or Benjamin left her.

I believe  Benjamin as he was known by 1881 was living  in Liverpool with a lady Mary Louisa Levine and did not married her until June 1886 .

I believe Alfred Benjamin and Benjamin Kelly are both the same man,  my great grandfather.

Benjamin is my brick wall I know his father was John, and he was born in Manchester married Mary and had my gran Lillian Kelly born 1889  Manchester,  who is another story.

Sorry to be so long winded,  but any help would be very much appreciated.
kind regards Sue
