Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs / Thomas Walsh - photo c1943-1946
« on: Sunday 10 October 21 16:48 BST (UK)  »
If anyone has the time to remove the scratches and give him a clean up, I'd really appreciate it.

any info regarding the sleeve badge also welcome - a web search seems to say its possibly a Petty Officer's sleeve badge but I'm not sure (ever, about services stuff! )

Still need to book an appointment to visit, but from today microfilms will be accessible again


Lancashire / St Cecilia's RC junior/infant school, Snaefell Ave., Tuebrook
« on: Thursday 16 September 21 16:55 BST (UK)  »
These children would have  started school in 1929 and attended till 1935 before going on to senior schools. I'd like, if possible, to narrow the date the photo was taken.
My problem is the wee girl at the front who is obscuring the date and class number on the placard.

If anyone can help I'd appreciate any and all suggestions of places to enquire about the date/ suggestions about how old the children may have been.

The holy grail would be if someone else has a copy of the photo and also had a Granny/ Great Granny who helpfully noted the date on the back:-)

I know this is a long shot, but God loves a trier!


Armed Forces / 4th (Royal Irish) Dragoon Guards
« on: Sunday 22 August 21 18:44 BST (UK)  »
I am researching a man, John Fraser , private 145 who enlisted in this regiment at Newcastle in 1820 and served for 24 years.

This book, has helped me enormously to track where he was when his various children were born (wife obviously must have accompanied him)

but it stops in 1838 and I'd like, if possible, to find out where he may have been from then till his discharge in 1844.

If anyone is able to point me in the right direction to find out, I'd appreciate it.

1851 census, for Wilhelmina Frazer, age 16 at 1 Union Tce, Newcastle upon Tyne
Piece 2407 / Folio 65 / Page 2 (for writing comparison)

any clues as to what it says and whereabouts in Ireland it is please?



Durham / Durham Record Office - more praise!
« on: Friday 20 August 21 14:05 BST (UK)  »
Other archives in the area will provide copies of records for those who, like me, are not able to visit.
The usual caveat is that unless you know an exact date and venue its no longer a 'copy' request but a 'research' request - with a resultant large hike in price.

I use the Durham Records Office Quick Search facility quite often for copies. Order and pay online and it really is quick.
This week I wanted a copy of a marriage record, I did know the church but only had the year and quarter. I emailed them to check if this would come into the realms of 'research'.
The reply was that the quick search service only requires a year and place, so they were happy to go ahead with the order.  I ordered and paid 5 and received the copy by email within 4 hours.

They are at the top of my list of helpful, efficient folk:-)


Northumberland Lookup Requests / Church Bank Cemetery Look up please
« on: Friday 20 August 21 12:07 BST (UK)  »
I have a death register entry for a Margaret Everett, who died 27 January 1883, aged 48 at Stephenson St. Willington Quay.
I believe Church Bank is the nearest Cemetery, but could be wrong .

If its possible to check at the North Tyneside Local History Library, I'd appreciate it.
No rush. If she's there, she'll still be there whenever any one visits :-)



Durham / Utterly flummoxed reading this census return- Help please
« on: Saturday 07 August 21 12:47 BST (UK)  »
1851 census
Piece 2397, Folio 486, Page 15
(For reference to see the whole pages to compare the writing)
The last line (honest) is an Ann Shillitoe, wife, married, age 52, born Yorkshire, Leeds
Her husband was a mariner so was probably at sea .

The next page has the rest of the household
there is a granddaughter aged 3  and I'd love to go look her up and see whose child she was but no matter how much I squint I can't decipher her name

Can anyone help?

Northumberland / Cambo Burial Registers - where are they?
« on: Thursday 05 August 21 16:49 BST (UK)  »
I was just about to put this burial record on an order form for Woodhorn :-(
Hannah Anderson, died 14 Jun 1877, buried 16th June 1877 at Cambo
(sources are death register entry, NDFHS burials transcripts on their members section, NBI on FindMyPast and her death notice says she died at Wallington so its all adding up).

Genuki tells me (on the Hartburn page)
Cambo, Holy Trinity: Records of baptisms 1843-1943, marriages 1843-1984 and burials 1843-1959 are available at Northumberland Archives Service.

But not according to either the catalogue or their Parish Registers list.

Does anyone know if the burials registers are still held at the church? Or have they been missed from the catalogue etc at Woodhorn?
