If somebody was described as having died of a Tubercular Liver what would that mean?


Other Countries / Jamaica family search
« on: Sunday 10 September 17 18:30 BST (UK)  »
I wonder if somebody could help me. I am researching the Jamaican side of my family but I don't seem to be able to get very far. I've only managed to get back my great grandparents but not any further. The only information I have got came a marriage and baptismal records I found on the familysearch website.

My grandfathers Stephen Samuel Foster and Isobel Malvina Dunkley were both born in St Elizabeth, Jamaica in about 1900. They got married in 1925, and according to the marriage record, Stephen Foster's father was called Alfred and Isobel Dunkley's father was called Joseph . The witnesses to the marriage were George Dunkley and Jemima Foster. Between 1925 and 1936 they had three children who's names were Winifred Viola, Alfred Adolphus and Rudolph Samuel.

Any help would be much appreciated as I have been researching this side of my family without any success for quite a long time.

Would it be possible for children from a non conformist family to be baptised in a parish church?

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Father's surname
« on: Saturday 05 August 17 20:21 BST (UK)  »
This is a long shot because it is so faded but could anyone tell me what the father's surname is and whether there is any chance it could be Bevan? Could somebody also tell me what the mothers name is?


Breconshire / Brick wall
« on: Friday 21 April 17 19:55 BST (UK)  »
I  have been  trying to trace the line of my Welsh ancestors but I seem to have hit a brick wall. I have for them in every census except 1841 and 1861. I think I have also found them in the parish registers.

The family I am looking for are:

William Bevan, b, 1837, Rassau, Breconshire
Margaret Bevan, b, 1837,
Thomas Bevan, b,1866,
William Bevan, b, 1869

William Bevan, 1791, Llangattock?
Ann Bevan, 1801?
William Bevan, 1837
John Bevan, 1845
Jennet Bevan,1843

Could someone help me find them in the 1841 and 1861 census or in the Parish records for Llangattock?
Also if anyone has experience of researching these areas, could you tell me if it is known to be difficult?

The Common Room / Missing record
« on: Tuesday 27 December 16 10:11 GMT (UK)  »
I am looking for the death certificate for somebody who died around about 1980 but they don't seem to have been registered. I thought all births death and marriages had to be registered, so what could be the reason for that?

Cork / Donovan, Field family Cork
« on: Tuesday 20 September 16 19:15 BST (UK)  »
the release of the civil records for Ireland has renewed my interest in this side of my family history, but I am still stuck behind a brick wall and can't get any further back. My great grandmother Mary Donovan was born in 1870 in Cork to Maurice Donovan and Hanorah Kelly. She moved to Wales where she Married my great grandfather Patrick Field in about 1901. Hanorah Kelly and Maurice Donovan got married  in 1865. My great grandfather Patrick Field was born in 1863 in Cork to Eugene Field and Ellen Mcswiney. I have found baptisms for his siblings John, William and Johannah and a possible marriage for Eugene and Ellen in 1855. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I could further my research?

Thank you.

Ireland / Name changes
« on: Friday 10 July 15 20:08 BST (UK)  »
Was it common for people in Ireland to change their names during the 19th century?

One of my ancestors was called Eugene on a birth certificate but on the parish record his name is written down as Owen. Also his wife's maiden name is Mcswiney on one parish record entry but just plain Swiney on a different parish record entry.
