Yorkshire (West Riding) / Sheffield Electoral roll 1940's onwards
« on: Wednesday 12 February 20 16:02 GMT (UK)  »
I have the Warriner family at 151 Fitzhubert Road, Sheffield C.B in 1939.

dad James b 1900
sons James  b 1923 
Brian b 1931
Barrie/Barry b 1936

All deceased.

Mum Lilian should be there too but isn't.

It is particularly James b 1923 that I am interested in.
He married Winifred Button in London in 1959,but died there in Jan 1961.
His marriage cert says that his previous marriage was dissolved,but we can't find one!

Does anyone have access to the electoral rolls to follow this family to 1959/60.

Many thanks

Johnathan Tebay born abt 1855 Macclesfield Cheshire England travelled to Canada with his son Ellis b 1887 on the Empress of Ireland headed for St John New Brunswick on 8th Feb 1907.

Son Ellis returned to the UK and married in 1910.Haven't found which ship or when this happened though.

Many thanks to anyone who can help with this.


Technical Help / Why can't I stayed logged in?
« on: Wednesday 16 November 16 11:09 GMT (UK)  »
I am on Windows 7 and use Firefox.

2 days ago my computer suddenly shut down (as if we'd had a power cut) but came straight back on.
I was no longer logged in to any website (Rootschat,Twitter,Yahoo Mail,Facebook and Ancestry to name a few).

Using Firefox and trying the tools...options....privacy settings ,I still can't get it to remain logged in as before. On Twitter,every time I log back in it sends me an email to ask if it was me!

It is remembering my passwords but not remembering to keep me logged in.

I am fed up with it so have migrated to Google Chrome for a while,that does allow me to stay logged in,but I don't like it as much as Firefox.

Suggestions please....I am not very computer literate and am terrified that I'll change something and won't be able to get it back as it was.So please explain in simple terms  ;D

Thanks Carol

Census and Resource Discussion / 1939 register- 5 million new records unlocked.
« on: Tuesday 15 November 16 23:20 GMT (UK)  »
Have just noticed this on Find My Past....

"  Thanks to the work of the 1939 Register team, we've been able to successfully match and open over 5 million more records that were previously closed, and they're all available to explore right now. If you have tried unsuccessfully to find a family member in the Register who died after 1991, there's a very good chance you'll be able to now.

Findmypast is the only place online that gives you access to the 1939 Register, which is a responsibility we take very seriously. Accordingly, we've been working away behind the scenes to give you access to as many individual entries as possible.

As we've mentioned in the past, data protection law prevents us from opening the record of anyone younger than 100 years and a day and still alive. As the Register ceased to be updated in 1991, this meant a number of the records of people who have since died were closed, when legally they could be open. In addition, many deaths were never recorded in the Register, possibly due to the individual dying abroad or a number of other reasons. The records of these people would also be closed.

In order to open these records and give access to our users, we've cross-referenced the 1939 Register with the General Register Office's England and Wales civil registration death indexes, 1969-2006. Since this record set gives dates of birth, we can match individual deaths, where they are recorded, to the people in the 1939 Register, meaning we can now open these records. We took the decision to do this matching after we had launched so that both Findmypast and TNA were confident that the process was 100% accurate.

We're cross-referencing further records on an ongoing basis, and will have more open soon.

In addition, we're opening the records of those who pass the 100 years and a day threshold on a weekly basis, at a rate of around 30,000 per month. We'll be opening more records every week, so check back often! "
