Armed Forces / Army Number
« on: Thursday 14 November 19 16:47 GMT (UK)  »
Hi, my father did his National Service in 1956, with the Welch Fusiliers. I can't access his records as I don't have his army number. How do I go about finding this number? Any help would be welcome. Thank you in advance.

Lancashire / Williamson Tunnels Liverpool
« on: Sunday 01 April 12 21:36 BST (UK)  »
Hi Guys, this is a long shot, but hoping someone will be able to point me in the right direction.
    I am a volunteer at the Friends of Williamson's Tunnels in Edge Hill Liverpool (we can be found on Facebook and also have a website). I have been told that the Territorial Army mapped out these tunnels many years ago. Does anyone know who would have these maps as the barracks are no longer there and who would I have to get in touch with to ask about the maps?
Thanx, Lynn xxx

Lancashire / Strange Names, Olsen, Ronnholm, Thomassen
« on: Monday 25 April 11 11:49 BST (UK)  »
Came across three strange names in my tree, would love someone try and help where they originated please. Right, I found my great auntie Annie married twice. In 1916, I have Annie Wood marrying Neils Peter Olsen. Then in 1932 marrying Karl Ronnholm. Then her daughter Mary C Olsen marrying Asbjorn A Thomassen. Does anyone know where I can find out where they come from? They don't sound very English to me. Thanx for reading, Lynn x

Denbighshire / Henry Wilson Powlson
« on: Friday 23 April 10 12:27 BST (UK)  »
Hi, I have just found a branch of my Powlson family in Llandrillo Yn Rhos. If any of these names ring a bell, I would love to hear from you.....
Henry Wilson Powlson born 1856, Manchester and died 1834 Conway. His wife was Sarah Arrabella Wise.
Clara Powlson born 1860, Manchester and died 1939 Aled
Charlotte E Powlson born 1870 Manchester and died 1947 Aled
Sidney Powlson 1865 Manchester and died 1941 Aled
    If anyone could help with a possible place of burial, that would also come in handy. I can't find any marriages for Clara and Charlotte, plus the death's were in Powlson. Thanx for reading, Lynn

Lancashire Lookup Requests / John Robert Geopel help please 1861 search
« on: Wednesday 24 February 10 07:53 GMT (UK)  »
Hi Rootschatters, looking for help, again lol. I am trying to locate John Robert Geopel, (born 1793, London) on the 1861 census. I have him on the 1851, with his wife Rosamund and family. I know he died in June 1862, Liverpool. So why can't I see him on the 1861? I have looked at the various different spellings. Please help. Thanx for reading, Lynn x

Hiya Rootschatters, need some help before I crack up. I am doing a Local History course on Liverpool. Now we are doing some murders that happened. The Black Widows or better known as the Skirving Street poisoners . I have been asked to find them on the 1881 census. I have looked for two nights and can't find anything. I have the entries from the criminal registers, but that is it. They are Catherine Flanagan and Margaret Higgins. For those who don't know the story or want to be refreshed, I have enclosed the link from the Liverpool Echo. if anyone can find them for me, I would be so grateful.
Thanx for reading, Lynn (hope the link works)
