Family History Programs, Tree Organisation, Presentation / FamilyHistorian 3
« on: Friday 26 June 15 20:50 BST (UK)  »
Hi, all. 
I'm hoping there is a simple explanation for my problem - there probably is as I'm not very hi-tech-minded and most of you will be cleverer than I am on these things!  I have FH3 (since 2006-ish) and it's been fine for what I want.  However, in the last couple of weeks I haven't been able to open the property dialog boxes. I don't recall doing anything to change things.   I click on the icon and nothing happens.  It's beginning to irritate, especially as I have quite a bit of stuff to record on various individuals, not least my lovely grandad's WW1 records. 

Hoping someone out there has this program and can help.

Glamorganshire / Trawlers based at Swansea
« on: Saturday 27 August 11 16:54 BST (UK)  »
Hi, all.  I've been told that my great-grandfather owned a share in a trawler which worked out of Swansea.  Apparently he made lots of money but spent it all in the pub!   I'd like to check this story out (about the boat, not the pub).  Does anyone know if there was much of a fishing industry in Swansea?  I always think of it as being involved in heavy industry in those days (early 20th century), but perhaps there was some fishing.  I guess the fishing boats had to be registered and, if that is the case,  I was wondering if anyone knows where I might be able to find any documents/transcripts which still exist. 

I'll be very glad of any clues or hints.  Many thanks.

« on: Saturday 12 June 10 08:38 BST (UK)  »
If it is of any use to anyone, I have a birth cert for the above, daughter of David Morgans (farmer of Cwrtygleden, Llanelly) and Mary, formerly Mainwaring.  I was trying to find a Sarah Morgans but it wasn't this one! 

Please PM  me if you need this certificate and I'll happily post it to you. 

Best wishes,
Gill

Somerset / Cats Ach?
« on: Monday 27 July 09 15:13 BST (UK)  »
Has anyone heard of a place in Somerset called Cats Ach?  I came across it on FamilySearch while looking for a baptism in 1815-ish in or near Martock and wondered if Cats Ach could be Ash, Martock.  I've googled and multimapped but can't find it, so hoped someone had come across it before.

Many thanks,
Gill

Oxfordshire Completed Look Up Requests / The Abbey, Abingdon
« on: Tuesday 19 May 09 14:50 BST (UK)  »
I'm hoping someone out there knows the town of Abingdon and will find this question easy to answer.  There is someone in my husband's family tree who was living in 1891 in The Abbey, Parish of St. Nicholas, Abingdon.  I know she wasn't a nun (!) so wondered if these were almshouses - she was an 81-year-old widow in 1891 so seems a likely candidate if they were almshouses.  Any info on that address would be welcome.  I've tried googling and, whilst there is reams of stuff on the abbey/church, I've failed to find anything about why "The Abbey" would be the address of ordinary folk.

Many thanks,
Gill

Glamorganshire / Mary Jane Doolan nee Thomas
« on: Friday 03 April 09 15:23 BST (UK)  »
Hello, everyone.  I'm wondering if this lady appears in anyone else's ancestry:  Mary Jane Thomas, b. 1867, Welsh-speaker born in Tregrove (1891 census) or Tregross (1901 census).   (Anyone got any ideas about this place - nearest I've found is Tregroes nr Llandyssul but I guess it could be anywhere in Wales.)  She married (1885) James Doolan at St. David's RC Church, Cardiff, and her father is shown as Daniel Thomas, deceased, Mason, on the marriage certificate.  I have tried to trace her on earlier censuses without success, and finding Daniel Thomas is like looking for a needle in a haystack - made more difficult because I don't know when he died.   She was living in Havelock St., Cardiff, at the time of her marriage but I can't find anything earlier than that.  I'm doing this bit of work for a friend and I'd love to be able to solve this riddle and thought maybe someone out there already knows .........

Many thanks,
