Europe / French to English Translation Required
« on: Sunday 15 August 21 10:30 BST (UK)  »
I'd appreciate help with this record of an infant death. The mother died within a few days -- on or before 2 April.

Parents: William Francis Cardwell, and his wife, Emily (Moyers), were from Ireland. Not sure why they were in Paris. Maybe the translation will shed light.

Thank you so much!

Will try this one more time. Having a hard time with the attachment.

I would appreciate it if someone could someone please translate the attached marriage record.

Thank you!


I'd appreciate suggestions of Electrical Engineering Training Schools between 1905-1913.

Researching family member from the UK, Electrical Engineering Lists. Hope to obtain program registration info to confirm family connection. This method has been extremely helpful for other family members.

Thank you

Where would someone obtain their Electrical Engineering education in 1913? Trying to confirm family relationship. Had luck in the past obtaining parent's names by contacting schools/universities.

Believe he was born in Penang, Straits Settlements in 1888, first appears in Bristol in 1914 (possibly 1911).

Douglas Wilson Mc Intyre is listed in Bristol as Graduate in 1913, and Associate Engineer in 1917 in the UK, Electrical Engineer Lists, 1871-1930 (Ancestry).

Listed as Electrical Engineer, Corporate Sub Station, Bristol Corporation in England and Wales 1939 Register (Ancestry).

Found as RAF in UK, Royal Air Force Airmen Records, 1918-1940.

Thank you for any help/suggestions!

Could you help me date this photograph? It was one of a handful of pics found after my gm died in 1995. My gm was born in Brislington in 1901. Her mother was from Cork City, County Cork but I don't know much more than that.

I'd appreciate any insight at all.


Other Countries / Penang: Christopher A McIntyre, Jane Alice Stewart
« on: Sunday 19 June 11 08:53 BST (UK)  »
Looking for information about Christopher A McINTYRE, b est 1853, possibly in Penang, suspect other McINTYREs in the area were related.

Clerk at Boustead & Co. in Penang in 1870s, partner with F(rederick?) STEWART, STEWART McINTYRE, land & commission agents & appraisers in 1900. F Stewart was likely his brother-in-law. Don't know if STEWART McINTYRE, engineers in Singapore is affiliated

Wife, Jane Alice (STEWART), d Jan 1891, is buried in Penang RC Cemetery. Believe he remarried before 1895. Christopher & Jane had 8 children, 5 girls, 3 boys incl Hannah, Hilda, Edith Charlotte Regina, Colin Adair and possibly Frederick Stewart.

Any information or suggestions would be wonderful, you may see something I've overlooked.


Antrim / Belfast Schools 1908-1922
« on: Saturday 26 February 11 09:12 GMT (UK)  »
Could anyone suggest resources, possibly school records?

Protestant HAMILTON family originally from Milford, Armagh but all five children were born in Penang, Straits Settlements, while their father, William HAMILTON, was a schoolmaster. Supposedly the children, or at least the oldest, Patrick, were schooled in Belfast.

Three boys: Patrick, b June 1896; William, b Jul 1897, Frederick b Oct 1899. Two girls: Mary b Nov 1904, Edith b 1906 (tbc). Mother, Edith may have been Roman Catholic (tbc), but husband's family were staunch Protestants. The boys served in military in WW1, their father taught cadets in Penang, not sure if that might offer a clue.

Found a possible "Mrs HAMILTON & children" sailing, 22 Mar 1901 from Penang to London, and departing England to Penang Nov 1908, arriving 22 Nov (newspaper notice). It's a bit of a leap and no other sailings were found.

Would Edith likely have stayed in Ireland/England, or would the children have been boarded? If so, at what ages might that happen? Their father taught in Penang from 1892 until all the children were grown but oddly he shows up in the Milford, Armagh 1901 Census. Can't find Edith or the children on 1901/1911 Irish censuses.

Edith's family may have been in London, she died there in Marylebone in 1925, supposedly near her family. Have no info regarding her birth, may have been born in Scotland or Straits Settlements.

I'm at a loss. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
