Europe / Re: Help locating a Belgium birth please
« on: Friday 14 June 19 18:21 BST (UK)  »
1925 birth records in Belgium are not publicly available due to privacy legislation (Note: Rootschat doesn't allow any discussions of these people either unless there is 100% certainty that they are deceased. At the moment the rules of this forum are not being followed!)

"As of March 31, 2019, access to records in Belgium is unrestricted to those more than 100 years for births, 75 years for marriages, and 50 years for deaths. Records later than these time periods are not open to the general public, and those after 1915 are not online. These records can only be viewed by special permission after writing to the municipal authorities of the municipality where the event occurred. A fee may be charged. "

Hi, thank you for this information, it will explain why I haven't found anything. Marguerite was my great grandma who died in 1985 and unfortunately nothing is known about her birth or parents.

Thank you.

Europe / Help locating a Belgium birth please
« on: Thursday 13 June 19 01:21 BST (UK)  »
Hi guys,

I wonder if anyone could possibly help me please?

I am trying to locate a birth for a Marguerite Elizabeth (or Eliza) M Michiels born 29th July 1925 in Belgium possibly Antwerp. I have found her first marriage to a Robert T Rook in 1947 also in Belguim in the army marriages index but I am stuck on her birth, parents and any siblings.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

I don't know if this website would be helpful or not. I ran into it working on an uncle by marriage's family, but never looked at it much.

Europe / Italy birth record - Pietro Guarnerio
« on: Monday 03 December 18 19:29 GMT (UK)  »
Hi,

I wonder if someone can help me please?

I am trying to locate the birth of a Pietro Guarnerio born around 1798 in Italy. He did move to the UK as he married a Mary Southwell in Huntingdon in 1823. All census records only state that he was born in Italy and a Naturalised British Subject but doesn't state where in Italy. Nothing is coming up on Ancestry or Find My past and I dont know where else to look.

Any help will be greatly appreciated

Thank you

Lancashire / Re: Thomas Lamb 1789 Cockerham
« on: Friday 16 November 18 21:47 GMT (UK)  »
I searched for Thomas Lamb marriages on LANOPC in a timeframe when a man born c1789 might have married. I couldn't pair any up with a baptism except for my own ancestor who was married at Ribchester 1811.
Another Thomas who married in that era was land agent to the duke who was the landlord. You should be able to work out which one he was and eliminate him.
Lamb was the most common surname in Thurnham township at one time.

Several people with long experience of Lamb research have contributed to the old Lamb thread.

Have you looked at Surnames Interests?

Hi,

Sorry for the late reply, I've not been feeling too well.

Thank you for the information, I've not had a look at the Surnames Interest but will do either later tonight or tomorrow and I will also check out the thread and see what comes up.

Thank you  :)

Where did you get the birth year of 1789 from?

Hi,

From Ancestry, there was a Thomas Lamb who was baptised 1789, Cockerham, Lancashire and the father was Cuddy Lamb. I did contact someone on Ancestry that had this Thomas on their tree but she cant find anything.

Ann

Is that the only information you have about Thomas having been born a) in 1789 and b) in Cockerham parish?
 There are several Thomas Lamb baptisms 1789 +/- 5 years within a 10 mile radius of Cockerham on Lancashire Online Parish Clerks. There are more in the rest of Lancashire.
Do you have evidence that your Thomas was born in Lancashire?

I dont I'm afraid. What I am doing is creating small trees with any Thomas Lamb born 1789 and gathering information to see if they connect with my Thomas Lamb, its something I have done with another great grandparent that was born elsewhere and solved via this way. I have found Thomas Lambs of the same year in Durham and Tew, Oxfordshire but unfortunately they dont connect so now I'm doing the Thomas Lamb of Cockerham but finding information on him is hard and anyone on Ancestry that have him in their tree have no extra information thats why I have reached out on here, it doesn't help either that he has a really common name. I have been stuck on Thomas for years now but I am determined to crack it and I'm going grey in the process lol.

There is an old, long thread about Lambs of Cockerham 1800s. It probably has information about Cuddy's family and other Lambs.  Lamb was a very common name in Cockerham parish.
My Thomas Lamb was baptised at Cockerham 1792. He remained in Lancashire and died in Preston. He was a stonemason.
