The Common Room / Asylum Records - tissues at the ready.
« on: Monday 31 January 11 21:53 GMT (UK)  »
My brother just received the records of our GGrandmother from the Lancs Record Office. Excellent service! We received a death notice and detailed medical records and a photograph! However, it was harrowing reading. I had never met this person but I was nearly reduced to tears reading her notes. What a horrible time she had for the 20 years she was incarcerated. I like to think she would not have suffered so cruelly today.  :'(

New Zealand Completed Requests / Marriage look up NZ
« on: Friday 07 January 11 21:17 GMT (UK)  »
A contact has informed me that one of my families had another daughter. Her name is Helen McKenzie Wright, parents Janet McKenzie and Alexander Wright. The family were in Glasgow but I can't find a birth for this daughter (c 1885). I was also told she married in NZ but I don't know where.

Is it possible to find a marriage with just the brides name? I am hoping that a marriage cert will confirm parentage. I would be grateful if someone could look for me or at least point me in the right direction. Thanks

If you are at a bit of a loose end could you try to find the following:

Annie E McKenzie b 30/11/1886, Lawrence , MA to Philip Chesbro b c1884. I know they had at least 2 children - Dorothy b abt 1910 and Gordon b abt 1911. Father Alexander McKenzie, Mother Lucy Fish.

Margaret McKenzie b 1891 Fitchburg, MA to Verlyn Bryant b 1887 GeorgiA (MA?)

Sarah (Sadie) McKenzie b 1897 Fitchburg, MA.  to Joseph Ryan b c1896, Illinois
Father to Sarah and Margaret,  Kenneth McKenzie, Mother Sarah Scott.

I have tried Family Search and a few other sites but I just can't see them.

Thank You!

Find BDM's in US, 1900 to present? (Maine and Massachusetts mainly) I have tried family search but their records only seem to go to 1915. Tried 'Googling' sites but no luck yet.
