The Common Room / Re: Thank you's, maps and groups to join???
« on: Tuesday 19 April 05 22:38 BST (UK)  »
First question???   Is it okay to post a thank you in the area where someone answered your post?  Or is the fact that you thanked them before hand in the post itself sufficient?  I wanted to thank a couple of people who answered my posting but was afraid it would be considered SPAM.  What is proper etiquette? 

Also can you recommend what maps of the UK, primarily England, would be best for learning of the  counties and regions both past and present?  Is the Society of Genealogists a good resource for maps especially those showing older county registration districts?  What other resources might there be?

Last question!!!  What are considered in the UK to be the best groups to join for studying family history.  Ones with access to numerous databases, etc.??  Are there equivalents to or that have greater access to information in the UK?

Thanks for your help!!  Dawn

Rod in Sussex is correct, a thank you is always welcomed from someone who has taken the time to reply to a post.
Also with regards to maps The Genuki site is quite comprehensive
As you mention England I have the link here: within the Genuki site links to the Old Maps site that Rod mentions, that is also a very good link.

I also find that joining a family history society is a good step with regards to resources available to an area that you are interested in. There are many site with online resources as you mention, Ancestry & also the LDS that Rod mentioned in his post. I think it would depend on the regions that you are researching. If you can say which region in England you are most interested in, us users may be able to direct you to good sources, or at least in the general direction.

Kindest Regards & all the very best with your research.

Is there any-one out there doing research about the Greenhill Area of Swansea, any information they may have would be very interesting.  With Thanks

I have two interesting books on the Greenhill area and as my Irish ancestors settled there I have knowledge on this area. If that is any help to you?

Census and Resource Discussion / Re: HELP

Your Mother is probably correct regarding being born in the March He was probably registered during the April - June Quarter in the indexes. 

Where did you send off for the Certificate?
Was it directly with the local office concerned or was it Southport?

Regards Jen

Glamorganshire Completed Lookups / Re: Census 1861 Swansea & Gower
« on: Monday 18 April 05 14:21 BST (UK)  »
Hello again, This wasn't the only match for their names, but there is no match to the couple together

I picked out the Gower areas primarily when searching but scrolled onto all matches to see if they were in Swansea itself and nothing.

I don't think this is them as the names are listed as unmarried, but I cannot find any other match:

Family History Beginners Board / Re: death certificate
« on: Sunday 17 April 05 17:17 BST (UK)  »
No you do not need the birth certificate. All you normally need to do if you are purchasing the certificate from the local registrar (where your ancestor was born / married / died) is to fill out an application form stating all of their particulars that you are aware of and they will search for the death entry. They need to know their full name and at least quarter and year that they died.

Hope this clarifies.

Well I sure missed all the Rootschatters!  ::)

I did go and thoroughly enjoyed & came away with some goodies!  ;D

Unfortunately I did not bump into any other Rootschat users  :( I was at the fair from 11:30 - 2:30pm My 4 yr old couldn't cope with her boredom any more!  ;D so I had no choice but to come away without seeing any of you.

Did chat to many others in the same genealogical circles as myself though so came away happy.

Hope you all enjoyed too!
Regards Jen  :D

The Common Room / Re: Advice please!
« on: Sunday 17 April 05 00:04 BST (UK)  »
Well with regards to the surname's as Annie was married to Samuel the baby would automatically take the surname ~ even though in true reality the baby may not actually be his!  :P This would explain the latter child having his surname when he was with Georgina ~ As there is a man 'William' living with Annie keep this in mind incase you find more clues that tie him in with the family.

With Rose's Birth certificate Samuel may have a mention and this may clarify if indeed he was 'on the scene' at the time of her birth, but if the father's name is left blank this would indicate the father being absent and the child was infact illegitimate (even though the baby has taken her mother's married name)

Hope I haven't confused you!  ::)

Regards Jen
