How to Use RootsChat (Please don't post requests here) / New Rootschat new format
« on: Thursday 20 December 12 18:03 GMT (UK)  »
Dear Administrators
I don't know where is best to post this
and you may well remove it

What I loved most about the old rootschat was the ease of use and layout
It was unique and so easy to use
Opening up the new format today and  I'm sad to say its lost it

It looks like now everyone board that exists
I'm sure I will get used to it
But sadly I don't know why people have to go and tamper with a product that was perfect  :'(

Technical Help / Premiere Elements question and multiple videos
« on: Monday 19 November 12 09:25 GMT (UK)  »
Any experienced users of Premiere Elements?

We have a collection of history stories and wondering if it would work to combine them all into one file..with a menu screen that could allow selection of a story (most 3-5 mins long)

Now the real question, when they stories have been saved we have ended up with many files and varying file extensions..very confusing..
What file/extension would be the complete video

The one that seems to work is a VOB file?
does that make sense to anyone

New Zealand Completed Requests / Alfred Wilson arrived in nz c1909 from where?
« on: Wednesday 07 November 12 19:10 GMT (UK)  »
Said I would help a friend with what seemed an easy track back to England given all the names..but admitting defeat!!  :'(

Marriage and death details say that
Name is Alfred or Alfred Lenard Kirkwood WILSON
Parents Alfred William Wilson and Alice nee CHAPMAN, father nurseryman
Born Folkestone or Ashford Kent, England about 1879

Alfred married for the 2nd time to May Williams 1914
First wife deceased 14/4/1904 and in NZ since c1909

Thread at kent board,620474.msg4704339.html#msg4704339
Can't find a rego under any name eg tried Kirkwood etc... and no matching census

Can't find anything that matches back in thought if I could find him coming to NZ..from where.when it may be a help

Can anyone see ALFRED WILSON coming to NZ c1909


Scotland / Chapman and Wilson marriage 1870s **completed**
« on: Wednesday 07 November 12 09:15 GMT (UK)  »
I'm running out of places where to look and ask
Several threads fpr Kent,620474.msg4704339.html#msg4704339

Alfred Leonard Kirkwood Wilson's New Zealand death certificate 1929
Has that his fathers name is: ALFRED WILLIAM WILSON (a Nurseryman)
That he was born Ashford England
Arrical in NZ c1909

On his second marriage in NZ, it has widower and the date 14 April 1904..for supposedly when first wife died
The marriage cert had Folkestone as place of birth

Can anyone spot an Alfred or William who is a nurseryman c 1879 in Kent area??

I'm asking here in Scotland if there is a marriage for a ALICE CHAPMAN to ALFRED WILLIAM WILSON 187ish
Their son later uses a middlename of KIRKWOOD..and I see that several families in Scotland include this..but can so far find no connection
Many thanks

Kent / Alice CHAPMAN married WILSON c 1870s
« on: Sunday 04 November 12 17:16 GMT (UK)  »
Have a thread on her son,620474.0.html

But no real leads, so wondered of anyone has Alice in their tree..
Should be married to an ALFRED WILLIAM WILSON
nothing shows in the registrations


Kent / Alfred Leonard WILSON born about 1879
« on: Saturday 20 October 12 21:10 BST (UK)  »
Dear chatters
out of my depth in a new county
Helping a friend with a query and having no luck

Alfred Leonard Kirkwwod WILSON born about 1879
death cert info (New Zealand) has parents as Alfred and Alice Wilson (nee Chapman)
Birthplace Ashford or Folkestone

I can't make a match on any of the above
Found a family in Kent 1881 census but no Alfred son

Can anyone see anything I can't
Wondered about the Kirkwood, which is not always used, but can't see anything using that as a surname option

Althea  :)

Roll of Early Settlers & Descendants in the Auckland Province before 1852
This ref is given on the NZSG index with page numbers

Just wondering if there is more info than just a name
Looking at Peter and Alexander LAMB, the ref is page 130

Is it a publication that any poster has??

New Zealand Completed Requests / Intention to Marry lookup**complete**
« on: Thursday 13 September 12 01:45 BST (UK)  »

Details of the marriage:
John Anderson marriage    30 Nov 1885 to Catherine Patterson

Many thanks
