Sorry folks but I  have inadvertently deleted a message about Australia libraries I think in answer to a post I did earlier.  Can anyone tell me how to retrieve it please or can the original message sender please message me again.

Thank you

Australia / Walter Herbert Albert Jewell
« on: Thursday 24 March 22 10:01 GMT (UK)  »
Hello all in Australia.   

I am hoping someone can help me with some information on a man who went to Australia in 1946.  He was born in 1920 in London.  In 1980 he was in an elctoral record Name:Walter Herbert Albert JewellGender:MaleElectoral Date:1980Electoral Place:Caboolture, Fisher, Queensland, Australia. 

I am searching for a friend who is related to him and family story is that he left the UK in a hurry as he was a bit of a bad boy.  He was not heard of again by the family.  She would like to find out if there are any relatives of this man still in Australia and about his life so she can tell the rest of the family before they get too old.

He is her uncle.  Even though his sister (her mother) is now dead there are several neices and nephews who wonder what happened to him.

I hope someone can give me some information for her.

Thank you

Yorkshire (East Riding & York) / Help to locate grave in Hull Eastern Cemetry
« on: Sunday 13 March 22 18:38 GMT (UK)  »
Good evening,

I know this is a large ask but is there anyone out there who could take a picture of a grave for me please.  I am not sure if it will still exist and it may not even have a headstone.   It is Compartment 228 Grave 88 at the Eastern Cemetery, Preston Road, Hull.  It should be for an Albert Dargue born 1879.

He is my gt grandfather and it has taken me well over 10 years to find all the information I have on his life so far.

Thank you if you can help.

What a happy Sunday this is.  After 15 years of searching I have eventually found (with help from chat room here) my grandfathers birth certificate.  He was born at 77 Fleming Street Gateshead and I cannot find it on google earth.  Can anyone advise where I might get a picture of this place. 
Thank you

The Common Room / 1921 Census image

I have purchased and downloaded an image from 1921 but it does not appear to have an address on it.  Is this normal for this census please?

Europe / Loretta Clares Garbutt 1844 and Alfred Napolean Garbutt 1842 France
« on: Saturday 27 March 21 10:20 GMT (UK)  »
Please can anyone help find the births for these two children.  Their father went to France (we do not know why) and his wife had these two children while they were there.  Fathers name was William George Garbutt (1799) and his wife was Jane.  They had several other children but in the UK.  Several of us are looking at the family as we are direct descendents and are baffled as to where and why they went to France.  they must have gone after July quarter of 1940 as they had a child then in South Shields.

 Thank you for any help you can give

The Common Room / 1939 Census information
« on: Thursday 16 August 18 14:35 BST (UK)  »
Hi All,

I have found my grandparents and family on the 1939 census and one of the children (who is still alive) is on there but her name has been changed in Green capitals to her married name.  Originally only dashes to indicate same name as person previously on list.  My father who is on there and some other siblings have been blacked out as they are still alive.  Why would this be different for her?  Would it be because she emigrated?



Yorkshire (East Riding & York) / Can't find a burial for Albert Ernest Dargue
« on: Tuesday 31 July 18 16:25 BST (UK)  »
I am coming back to this after several years of leaving it alone hoping something has appeared in the interim.  My gt. grandfather Albert Ernest Dargue died in Hull in 1938.  He died on January 1st at 5 Durham Street.  He had left his wife and family and had returned to the town of his birth with his new lady friend.  His children were told by their mother that he was dead after he left.  I expect this was to save face.

I have not been able to find out where he was buried or if he was cremated.

Could anyone please help close this search for me please.



Durham / Cannot find right location
« on: Sunday 03 January 16 19:31 GMT (UK)  »
My grandmother was born in 1912 and on her birth certificate the address is 437 Mount Pleasant, Sacriston, Witton Gilbert RD.

I have looked on google earth but cannot find anything that fits.  I realise that Mount Pleasant and Sacriston are different places and that Witton Gilbert seems to be a small place in the middle.

Can anyone shed any light on  where she may actually have been born.

Thank you


I do not get on here every day so sorry if it is a while before I reply
