The Common Room / Seymour T P Hales
« on: Saturday 15 January 22 08:59 GMT (UK)  »
All my DNA research suggests that Seymour T P Hales was my biological father. He was born in Lambeth on 26 May 1923 and died in Blackpool in October 1981.
He married a few times and appeared to have numerous affairs, me being the result of one of them.
At some point in the 1950's he served in the Army in Singapore.
My research has been with Ancestry and my tree is public.
I am really finding this man rather elusive and would appreciate thoughts on how I can find further information about him. Anything would be useful.
Thank you so much

Family History Beginners Board / LOVELOCK
« on: Sunday 24 May 20 13:58 BST (UK)  »
In my tree search I have become rather confused with this man. Gerald C Lovelock born in Brentford, Middlesex in 1927 but appears to have changed his name twice before his death in 2005 in Milton Keynes, Bucks. He was also known as Stephen Lovelock and Stephen Murray in Ancestry records. At one point, he was married to Elsie Marie Goosey. Just wondering if anyone can help me move forward with this foggy area. Many thanks.

Family History Beginners Board / Non-Conformist

Just seeking general feedback about Non-Conformity as it seems like there is a history of it in my tree going back to around 1800. I am aware of what it is about, but were they accepted by the majority or not.
Many thanks.

Family History Beginners Board / William George SATCHWELL
« on: Monday 24 April 17 16:54 BST (UK)  »
Am having problems in trying to find the names of my GGGrandfathers parents.
He was born in London in 1852 and died in Salford, Lancashire in 1929.
I understand that he is a descendant of Benjamin Satchwell 1732-1810 of Leamington Spa.
Any help will be gratefully received.
Many thanks.

Family History Beginners Board / Matthew WALTON burial
« on: Sunday 26 February 17 17:04 GMT (UK)  »
Born in Glossop, Derbyshire in 1889 where he lived for most of his life, yet for some reason, died in Blackpool, Lancashire in 1957. I am trying to find out where he would have been buried as all his family are in Gossop cemetery and he is not.
Many thanks.

Australia / William Hardie BOTT
« on: Tuesday 14 February 17 18:15 GMT (UK)  »
I am trying to find birth information re. my uncle who died about 5 years ago. I know he was Australian and born around 1920 and married my aunt Constance Ruth SATCHWELL in 1939 in Manchester.
Any ideas, please?

Family History Beginners Board / 1 or 2 Trees??
« on: Thursday 02 February 17 09:45 GMT (UK)  »
I have been working on my adopted family tree but would like to add my birth  mothers family to it. Is this possible or do I need to start a second tree. Does not appear so easy in Ancestry. Many thanks.

Family History Beginners Board / Hollingworth grave
« on: Saturday 28 January 17 09:12 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all
I believe there is a Family grave in a Hollingworth church named POTT including James & Floris Pott.
I am unsure as to the name of the church but do know it was close to the Gun Inn. I now live in France so it's not so easy to visit but I cannot find the church on Google Earth so maybe it's gone, now.
Any information would be most welcome.
