Sussex Lookup Requests / Daniel Etheridge b1664
« on: Tuesday 26 April 11 17:25 BST (UK)  »
Daniel Etheridge, bapt 30 Oct 1664, St Mary's, Thakeham.
I have a marriage for Daniel to Mary Slater, 13 May 1686, Thakeham (my x8 gr grandparents)
I have seen other records of a Daniel marrying a Mary Greenfield, 18 May 1697, West Chiltington (on SMI)
Did Mary, nee Slater die, if so when,  and did Daniel then remarry to Mary Greenfield.
The burial records for Thakeham, if anyone has access, would help me prove if this is the case.

Lancashire / Percy Wall
« on: Wednesday 21 July 10 19:58 BST (UK)  »
It seems as though Percy Ernest Wall & and his wife Mary Elizabeth, nee Harris (married 1899)came on bad times, as on the 1911 census they are living apart.
Percy was in the Salford Workhouse and Mary was living at 74 Holland Street, Pendleton, a servant age 35 & married. It gives her as having three children, all alive.
I have found that there are three Wall children, Ernest George b1901, Clara Elizabeth b1903 & Albert Edward b 1906, all born Salford. They were living at the Culcheth Cottage Homes, Newchurch, Warrington. The home belonging to the Guardians of Salford Union.
Has anyone come across this family in their tree as I would like to bring this line forward.

Somerset / John BRYER marriage
« on: Wednesday 30 June 10 10:30 BST (UK)  »
I'm looking for a marriage, circa 1808 of a John Bryer to a Hannah Maria ?
John, a son, was born 1810 in Cranborne, Dorset. It is possible that the Bryers were originally from Somerset, last known residence was in Broadwater, Sussex.
Anything regarding this family would be much appreciated.

Stirlingshire / Army Catering Corps, Jan 1961
« on: Thursday 26 November 09 09:53 GMT (UK)  »
I have been active in genealogy for about 12 years but at the moment I am compiling a tree with a slight difference. The tree is of 33 guys who joined the Army Catering Corps, January 1961.
In 2011, it is our 50th annivesary, so am trying to locate as many as possible(15 so far) for a reunion
As I cannot include names etc, if you know of anybody born about 1945 from Stirling who joined the ACC could you please contact me

Caithness / Missing sister
« on: Monday 12 October 09 20:27 BST (UK)  »
This is a long shot I know.
I have recently found out that I have a half sister, born 1943-1944, Thurso.  My father, now deceased, was stationed in Thurso during this time and fathered a girl. He and the child's mother never married. He knew that there was a child but was then posted to units throughout Germany and Austria, and they lost all contact.
I have no name for the mother or the girl
As I say, it is a long shot but if you don't ask !!!!
