Lancashire / Martin Burke, born circa 1897 Manchester or Ireland?
« on: Monday 27 July 20 15:52 BST (UK)  »
Martin Burke, 22, married Jane Beard, 18, 1st Jan, 1920 in Manchester Registry Office.

Father's names were Martin Burke & Samuel Beard (Deceased)

The occupation of all 4 was Fruit Hawker.

Martin died, age 51, on 24th Aug 1948 in Wythenshawe Sanitorium

I am trying to find Martin's birth either in UK or Ireland. Can anyone help with this one.

I have found 5 children from the marriage for clues to his mother's name. The 1st child was named Mary.
I have been searching the 1901 & 1911 census both in Lancashire & Ireland for Martins with father Martin & mother, Mary. Have found some but cannot be certain.

Down / Fraser Family, Donaghadee/Bangor
« on: Thursday 14 May 20 08:43 BST (UK)  »
My Grandmother's sister, Martha Gaston Clark, b 1895 married a Donald Fraser, b 1894, in Glasgow, 1918. They later moved to Northern Ireland. The last I heard, back in the sixties, they were living either in Bangor or Donaghadee, Co Down.

I have found an old photo which may be of their son's wedding which I have placed on another thread.

Can anyone assist in tracing this family, please.

Can anyone identify the uniform  in the photo discussed in the following thread

This photo was in my GMother's (1883-1968) collection. It may be my GMother's younger sister's son but cannot be sure.
Her sister was Martha Clark who married a Donald Fraser in Glasgow, 1918. They later moved to Northern Ireland, Antrim.
Thought it might have been around the 2nd WW

Kent / Peter Bruntfield & Jane Watson births in Kent
« on: Saturday 25 January 20 12:38 GMT (UK)  »
Looking for the births of Peter Bruntfield & his wife, Jane Watson.

They were married in Canterbury, Kent on 18th Aug 1807.

They had 4 children, 2 in Dover, Kent & 2 in Stoke Damerel, Devon.

 I suspect he was in the Navy & possibly moved about a bit.

His daughter, Ann, b 1808, Dover would eventually marry a Robert Fisher in Perth, Scotland.

Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / DNA testing accuracy
« on: Wednesday 15 January 20 13:34 GMT (UK)  »
My DNA test with Ancestry did not throw up any surprises in terms of my ethnicity but my partner's test with Myheritage was extremely surprising. Although her mother was descended from French Huegenots & father descended from East of England, her ethnicity was 42% Scandinavian.

Can anyone explain that please.
