Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs / Is this the same man ?
« on: Tuesday 17 February 09 21:37 GMT (UK)  »
Hello

I would like opinions on whether the man in the 2nd photo is the same man in the 1st photo.

The 1st photo is of my Great Grandad. I notice he has a promiment line/dimple on his chin. Does the man in the 2nd photo have this line/dimple on his chin ?

My Great Grandad would be 59 in the 2nd photo at his sons wedding if it is him. Does he look 59 ?

Armed Forces / Which Battallion in the Rifle Brigade + S.W.B
« on: Sunday 15 February 09 00:48 GMT (UK)  »
Hello

I found my G Grandfather Charles Arthur Prince, Silver War Badge by accident yesterday in the loft. He must of given it to my late father. I am really happy. His S.W.B number is 71976.

From his medal card he was Private S/10957 Rifle Brigade.  He entered the theatre of war in France on the 8th Dec 1915.

He enlisted 25th May 1915 and was wounded then discharged 10th Oct 1916.

My question is how can i find out which Batallion of the Rifle Brigade he was in and where and how he was wounded.

Thank you in advance

Armed Forces / Royal Navy Service Record help please
« on: Thursday 12 February 09 16:33 GMT (UK)  »
Hello

I need some help in understanding my Great Grandad's Royal Navy Service record. I have outlined the bit i am confused about in red.

Between 1897 and 1914 was he in the Navy as there are no ships listed.

I know from the censuses that he was a Crane Driver in 1901 and an Engine Driver for the Margate Pier and Harbour Company in 1911.

Thank you in advance.

The Common Room / COLLYER, LEE, LOADER in Woking, Surrey puzzle ?
« on: Tuesday 27 January 09 15:52 GMT (UK)  »
Hello

My neighbour is having sleepless nights over her family tree puzzle. She asked me to put it on Rootschat. She wrote it down and gave me the following brick wall. In her own words :

I am tracing my mothers relations from the Woking area of Surrey with the help of a photo album. The family names are LEE and COLLYER. There are two photos in the album i cannot trace with the surname LOADER. My grandmother Louisa Lee refers to one photo as 'my grandmother' with the writing G. LOADER possibly born early 1800's, and also a picture of a Miss Elizabeth LOADER born about the mid 1800's who my mother Winifred FAIRES refers to as Aunt Elizabeth. Following the tree the names are Louisa LEE, Jane COLLYER and Sarah BRIDGES.

So who is granny LOADER ?

Can you help please.
End.

Regards

Devon Lookup Requests / East Stonehouse : 1810 Marriage lookup please
« on: Friday 23 January 09 01:33 GMT (UK)  »
Hello

I wonder if anyone has the East Stonehouse, St George parish records at hand.

I would like to know the info given on a marriage record between James Hooper married Elizabeth Craig 31/10/1810. I am hoping it might say that James was from Exeter.

My ancestors were James Hooper and wife Elizabeth (surname unknown). They were living in Exeter, St Mary Major in 1841 and their children were born there.  James birth is given as 1785. Elizabeth is given as 1788. The 1851 census says Elizabeth (now a widow) was born in Plymouth 1788.

Thank you in advance

Hello

I am looking for the marriage of William Beddall and Ann (surname unkknown) possibly in the Iver and Denham parish area of Bucks c1788.

I say c1788 because their daughter Ann was born about 1789 in Hillingdon, Middlesex. I have searched the Middlesex parishes surrounding Hillingdon for a marriage without sucsess.

Thank you in advance
