Europe / Norwegian parish
« on: Wednesday 18 August 21 00:56 BST (UK)  »
I have Hans Julius BORSUM reputedly born/baptised 1832 Diabast Norway. I can find no information about Diabast ( Google). Other Trees on Ancestry have him born Oslo/Christiana.
Is anyone able to help please? I have used the Norway Digital Archives with limited success.
I also have his naturalisation certificate stating Christiana, Agerhus Auet ( presume Akerhus)
Thank you

England / Meaning of Aged fund house on 1851 census
« on: Monday 21 June 21 02:01 BST (UK)  »
Does anyone know what the entry on the 1851 UK census under occupation "Aged fund House" means?
I have several examples in the village of Hatfield Peverel for men aged 70-80 and also some who are living in Almshouses. Does this mean the properties were for older villagers and supported  perhaps by the parish?

Many thanks

Antrim Resources & Offers / Andrew Boyd Ballymena Co Antrim
« on: Wednesday 29 April 20 04:27 BST (UK)  »
Am searching for a marriage c 1820-1830 between Andrew Boyd and Elizabeth McCulloch most probably Catholic Parish. The only detail I have is that they were from Ballymena. One son, John Boyd b 1831 came to Australia in the mid 1850' s.
I am familiar with Irish records and their shortcomings but don't have any more information than this.
Many thanks

Can anyone tell me what uniform this serviceman is wearing please. The lady on the right is my mother and I think the photo was taken c 1940 in England, possibly Wiltshire, before my brother was born in 1941. It is not my father as he ALWAYS took the photos!
