Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Baptism of George Yewde, 1642
« on: Sunday 01 August 21 11:22 BST (UK)  »
Hi All,

I'm trying to work out if the attached parish record shows the baptism of George & Thomas, or if Thomas is a completely separate baptism and George has no father listed.  I'm struggling to work out the word (or words) after Thomas to see if it is a different surname for Thomas.

Any help appreciated,

Thanks,

Jean

Scotland / Mary Ann Oliver PATON nee WILSON
« on: Saturday 02 July 16 21:36 BST (UK)  »
Hi All,

I don't have much experience looking at Scottish research, but my husband remembers Mary and would like to know when she died.  She married George Black PATON in 1946 in Ramsgate.  George was Scottish and they lived there - I belive Mary died in Scotland but have no idea where but possibly in the 1970's.  After Mary died George moved to England and lived with my in-laws until he died in 1983.  George may have been a fireman or part time fireman and enjoyed woodworking.

I'd really appreciate any help,

Thanks,

Jean

Armed Forces Resources / Boer War - Spion Kop Photographs
« on: Thursday 21 January 16 19:54 GMT (UK)  »
I was lucky enough to holiday in South Africa recently and had the opportunity to visit Spion Kop.  I took a number of photos and will post them gradually on this thread.

If you see anything of interest PM me and I can send a high resolution copy of the photograph.

Thanks,

Jean

Cheshire / CPRDB - Great Budworth now loaded
« on: Friday 13 March 15 16:49 GMT (UK)  »
Hi All,

Please note that the parish record transcription for Great Budworth St Mary & All Saints, one of the largest ancient parishes of Cheshire, was added to the Cheshire Parish Register Project database yesterday and is searchable here:

I am personally delighted as this is the one I have been waiting for - weekend plans are now out of the window! :)

Cheshire / CPRDB - Northwich Castle Holy Trinity now loaded
« on: Saturday 05 April 14 14:15 BST (UK)  »
Hi All,

Northwich Castle Holy Trinity is available now on the CPRDB site - it has leapfrogged Great Budworth because it is a small parish and required less work.

Please note that this only contains 449 baptisms as there were no burials or marriages performed before 1872 which is the cut off date for the CPRDB project.

Happy hunting!

Cheshire / CPRDB - Knutsford Parish now loaded

Hi All,

Please note that the parish record transcription for Knutsford St John was added to the Cheshire Parish Register Project database today and is searchable here:

A real bonus following the addition of Cheadle St Mary in January.  And I'm reliably informed that Great Budworth is next!  Watch this space!

It appears that there is a problem with the Tameside Burial records database at the moment that they are working to resolve.  Will post as soon as I have an update.
