These pictures are quite dark and not very clear, are they able to be brightened up? Any help would be massively appreciated! Thank you so much!

The Common Room / Magazine from 1898
« on: Saturday 18 July 20 18:56 BST (UK)  »

We were sorting our loft out and came across a magazine type of book that my grandad had found years ago when he was doing building work at a derelict property.

The magazine was called Home Notes and the date says 1898. I've tried to search for the same magazine online and I can't seem to find anything!

I only took a picture of the front as it is very delicate after many many years!

Cheshire / Hmm is this strange?
« on: Saturday 04 July 20 17:02 BST (UK)  »

I was looking for information on my relative, Wilfred Oakes, a while ago.

My nana (his daughter), has just brought him up again and we've realised some weird things!

Wilfred married Doris Walklate in 1947, Northwich area, but there is hardly anything online to confirm this? I've just ordered there marriage certificate (hopefully it's theres), but it's very hard to find online! Myheritage? Freebmd?

Also, Wilfred died in Middlewich, he drowned in the local canal and was found by a dog walker. The case is still open and he died in 1977, for such a small village, this is BIG news and we'd of thought it would be in the papers? But we can't find anything for that either? We don't know if he was pushed in or if he fell in or if he jumped in..

It just seems very strange to me!

Thank you in advance if anyone can help :)

Europe / Matjas surname, finding a family in Germany
« on: Monday 30 March 20 18:44 BST (UK)  »

I'm trying to help someone find there family but they are having no luck at the moment! Can anyone help find information?

So there was Josef Porr DOB 1879 and Helene Matjas DOB 1890.

They had Josef Matjas 1914 - 1999.

Josef Matjas then married Alice Grunewald 1908 - 1995 and they had a child called Rosemarie Matjas 1939 - 2000.

Kristen is really eager to find information, she has these basic facts but she wants to know if theres anything else. Pictures/more unknown family/siblings etc? Where did they live in Germany? Is "Matjas" even a german surname? We know Josef and Alice eventually went to the USA in 1954.

There just doesn't seem to be anyone alive who'd have the answers for Kristen, so i'm hoping someone can help? :)

thank you.

Other Countries / Croatia - Stefica Perek Headstone
« on: Thursday 30 January 20 18:29 GMT (UK)  »

I have been sent this image, a grave stone for Milan and Stefica Perek, i have no idea where the grave is! Just that it is somewhere in Beletinec, Croatia.

But i'm trying to find out when Stefica died as it isnt on the headstone? (i've been told numerous times that she has definitely passed away), so i'm just wondering if anyone know how to search this? As i don't speak Croatian and it's making it quite difficult! :(

Cheshire / Abandoned House on Wistaston Road, Nantwich
« on: Sunday 12 January 20 12:50 GMT (UK)  »

I am VERY interested to learn about the abandoned house on Wistaston Road in Nantwich, no.10.

I've searched for the residents and it says the house is still owned, but theres no way anyone could be living in there right now. It looks like it has been abandoned for years. I'm just wondering if anyone would know any information on this property? old owners etc? what happened?

Thank you :)

Cheshire / Kings Street, Middlewich
« on: Friday 11 October 19 21:26 BST (UK)  »

this is abit of a long shot but i'm trying to search for a Lucy who used to live on Kings Street in Middlewich, we thought it would be no.71 but i have no idea how to find out!

obviously she has died now, i don't have her birth or death date so with such little information i know it's a long shot!


Caernarvonshire / Eleanor Parry 1844
« on: Sunday 14 July 19 21:06 BST (UK)  »

Theres a grave I go to visit in Conwy and i'm interested in the grave that is actually next to it..

St Marys Church, Conwy

Eleanor Parry died in June 1844 at the age of 10 years old.
Her mother is also called Eleanor and I think her dad is called Thomas?

Does anyone know of this family? Or why she died so young? Or if there were other siblings etc?

I'm just trying to see if theres some kind of match with this grave and the one i visit because theres loads of space in the cemetry and yet them two are stood very close side by side with each other! maybe for no reason, but i'm curious! :)

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Cause of death
« on: Sunday 23 June 19 20:54 BST (UK)  »

Can anyone work out what this says please?

I can see the bottom name is Sepsis and there's something to do with an amputation but the first line and part of the second line is really hard to read!

Thank you.
