Derbyshire / Beardsley of Melbourne and Belper
« on: Saturday 31 August 19 15:30 BST (UK)  »

I am looking for any information on John Beardsley b 1813 in Belper. Some records say Shottle. I know in later years the family moved to Melbourne Derbyshire. John was a butcher, as was his son Robert, who murdered his wife! John married an Elizabeth Radford. I have been unable to find John's parents

Thanks in advance

Galway / Nuns in the family

Hello there

Does anyone have any idea where I would find more details on a relation who was a nun? She was born in 1908 but I don't have any other info, except her name etc.


Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / DNA
« on: Tuesday 09 April 19 18:05 BST (UK)  »

Sorry if this has been posted before, but has anyone got any tips on finding Irish connections? I have a match on My Heritage. She has no tree. It says she is 80 years old. She matches one of my mother's second cousins and my mother, but I don't know who she is and neither does the shared match. If it was an English match I would be able to find out who she is by searching back through records, but obviously that isn't possible with Irish records as they finish online in about 1958.

Would appreciate any guidance.


Galway / Where is this place?
« on: Wednesday 03 April 19 18:01 BST (UK)  »

An ancestor of mine, Martin Tuohy married Honoria Banfield/Bonfield in 1877 in Looscaun Parish. They both gave their place of residence as Shlaughtee or Slaughtee. I've tried everything I can think of to find where this place is. Does anyone have any ideas?

If it's any help, Martin's father is given as Patrick Tuohy (died) and Honoria's father is Michael Banfield (alive).


Galway / Where else to look for a marriage?
« on: Sunday 10 March 19 19:12 GMT (UK)  »

I am trying to find the marriage of Lawrence/Laurence Burke and Margaret Costello. In the 1911 census it says they have been married 9 years. This seems correct as I can find Lawrence on his own in the 1901, but no further record of Margaret anywhere. She is my brickwall. I only know her surname is Costello from the children's birth records. They lived in Nutgrove or Feebrack, Tynagh. No record of them on the Irish Genealogy website.

Sorry I am quite new to the Irish side of Genealogy.
Kind regards, Samantha

Galway / Finding a recent death record
« on: Thursday 07 March 19 19:07 GMT (UK)  »

I've recently found out that my Grandfather died in 2015 (I never met him). I know his full name and year of birth. Is there a way to find record of his death? He is listed on his parents gravestone in Abbey, Co Galway so I've been told, but I don't know if he is actually buried there.

London and Middlesex / Where to go next with ancestor?
« on: Friday 18 November 11 20:32 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all

I am trying to find out more about an ancestor. Her name was Alice O'connor and she married a Frederick Bolt. They were married in 1909 in a Catholic church in Kensington. I have the marriage cert. It gives her fathers name as Patrick Joseph O'connor and his job was labourer. I have also found what I believe is her death, in Ipswich in 1974. The death record gives her name as Alice Theresa Bolt and dob as 28 August 1887. I know the family moved to Ipswich which is why I believe it to be the correct one. With this info, where do I go from here?
