Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / How To Load My Wifes DNA To My Ancestry Tree
« on: Friday 13 August 21 13:19 BST (UK)  »
I have my family tree on Ancestry, I had my Ancestry DNA attached to it years ago. My wife has just had the results to her Ancestry DNA.

How can I load her results to my Ancestry tree, I seem to be going round in circles

Thank you

World War One / 3rd ? Coy, Royal Engineers
« on: Sunday 07 March 21 21:41 GMT (UK)  »
Hello

Please can someone tell me what 3rd ? Coy means, and does anyone know where these Royal Engineers were between August 1915 and March 1916

My next question, My Thomas Hobson joins up on 18th August 1915 and is in France 7 days later, is this unusual?

Thank you

Hi

Does anyone have access to Grafton Flyford or Flyford Flavel parish records, I really would appreciate a lookup.  According to the censuses, my 3 x gt grandfather John Nash was born 1812-1814 in one of those parishes

Thank you

Derbyshire / Oswald Stephen Dippnall died Belper 1961
« on: Saturday 09 May 20 13:43 BST (UK)  »
I have an uncle, my mothers brother, his name was Oswald Stephen Dippnall.  I believe he was profoundly handicapped, he died in the Belper registration district in 1961 age 9, this wasn't the family home county.  I was wandering whether there was some kind of hospital or the like in Belper.

I would send of for his death certificate, but I haven't received certificates that I sent off for in March

Thank you

Lancashire / Strangeways Prison, Manchester

Hi

I have an ancestor who was a naughty boy, between 1895 and 1903 he was given at least 4 terms of hard labour from the Manchester Police Court and Manchester Sessions.  Would this have been served at Strangeways or would he have been moved out of Manchester?

Thank you

Lancashire / Village St Johns Liverpool
« on: Thursday 09 April 20 15:22 BST (UK)  »
This is the address on a 1841 census in Liverpool, the previous page the addresses are on St Johns Lane.  This one is given as Village St John.  I would like to know where in Liverpool this would be.  Will this be the area where St Johns Market and shopping mall are today

Thank you
