London and Middlesex / Lewin family
« on: Saturday 21 January 12 18:32 GMT (UK)  »
Dear All
Could anyone do a look up for me for the Marriage Index (Palots?) for William and Sophia Lewin, both from Middlesex who married about 1824/6, please.

Rutland / John and Mary Ann Freeman
« on: Tuesday 03 January 12 00:10 GMT (UK)  »
Dear All
Does anyone have any info they can give me on John and Mary Ann Freeman.  He was born in Brooke, Rutland, and she was born in Langham, Rutland, both ca. 1811.  I have found them on censuses until 1861 and then they disappear.  I can't find them on the National Burial Index.  He was a grazier/cattle dealer.  I should be grateful for anything.  Thank you.

Dear All
Is there any possibility you could tidy these little girls up?  And provide me with a date?  They are tintypes - I think possibly about the 1860s but an educated date might enable me to work out who they are.
Many thanks.

Is there any possibility that you could tidy up this photo please?  It's rather faded and has a crease.  I'd be very grateful.

Oxfordshire / Bell Inn, Shennington
« on: Tuesday 01 March 11 19:08 GMT (UK)  »
Dear All
My Dad's cousin has sent me a copy of a letter written to her great aunt in the early 70s.  I think the writer's name might (or might not) be Susie.  But she's nearly 86 and living with her daughter and son-in-law (or possibly daughter-in-law and son) Hilda and Francis who are publicans at the Bell Inn, Shennington, nr Banbury in Oxfordshire.   She mentions no less than 14 people in the letter by name - but few surnames.  Is there any way I can find out who kep the Bell Inn in the late 60s and early 70s, please?
Many thanks

Dear All
This is one of my Franklin rellies from the Bedford/Biggleswade area.  Could anyone please identify what regiment he was serving in, please?  His cap badge seems to be a horse.
Many thanks

Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs / A very faded picture
« on: Saturday 19 February 11 14:09 GMT (UK)  »
Would anyone be able to help making this photo clearer please?  He has to be one of my Franklin relatives from Bedford/Biggleswade.  The photo was taken at The Studio, Shortmead Street, Biggleswade,  measuring 5.5 cm x 9 cm, and is mounted on a card.  Also is it possible to suggest a date for it?  Not to mention the sort of regiment?  I should be very grateful
Many thanks

The Common Room / Haslar Naval Hospital
« on: Wednesday 27 October 10 23:00 BST (UK)  »
Dear All
I've just been watching Time Team.  My Gt Grandfather was injured in a fall on a ship in 1914/15, in a torpedo training establishment in Portsmouth Harbour, so was probably nursed at Haslar.  Is there any possibility of access to their records as there are family myths about his accident which don't add up, and it would be nice to sort out what really happened to him?  He suffered epilepsy for the rest of his life because of his injuries, having been discharged from the Navy as unfit.
