Hi Annette

Have you tried the IGI and Genes Reunited?  Also a good equivalent to our "yellow pages" in the UK which lists various commercial people is the one at historicaldirectories.org (Leicester Uni run this one) which has scanned in various trade directories of the 1800's from around the country.  Fully searchable by name and occupation.  This may be a start.  Try Fawcett and the village name in Google and see what happens, or Geneanet is worth checking out.

Cheers

Census and Resource Discussion / Re: Catholic library - open for business?

Hi MarieC

I presume you have tried all the usual suspects online like IGI etc.  I know I found some of my Yorkshire lot were Catholics who married Anabaptists and of course do not baptise their children or give the parents names etc (causes a big headache when all the sons have a son named after the common father!)  Some kind C of E vicar recorde them in the back of his book.  I actually did not know there was a Catholic library.  Will keep an eye open for them in the future.

Census and Resource Discussion / Re: Non- PC Family tree's

I have paperwork on a large Ikea (!) bookcase with files for every ancestor (over 13500 and still growing).  Use FTM10 and have entered all ancestors on it.  I burn a copy every so often and back up everytime to 4 computers on the network I run at home.  Well worth the effort.

The Common Room / When people were baptised
« on: Friday 24 February 06 20:55 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all

Just had a sudden thought  :o  What made people baptise their children on certain dates, eg a month later or Christmas Day etc or even as adults.  Also when they chose to get married.  Would love to computer som statistics on that rather like the rootschat variety.  Any suggestions or comments?

Cheers

Hi Mimosa

Was the transfer to Genes alright?  Are we green for go?

Have found from a few friends on the net that Tesco tends to bin various emails from certain internet providers even if they are friends replying to an email!  Not very helpful it they end up in the bulk folder! :o

Worth considering and changing and import/export your contact list and tell them you have moved ISP's.

The Lighter Side / Re: Relaxation for Genealogy researchers!

Hmmm

How about patting on the head with RH and circular movements on stomach/chest with LH then reverse them and see what happens!  :o ;D

What next reflexology for Family Histerians?  ??? Sorry Historians and researchers not the people who panic as the computers falls terminally ill or you have not had your latest ancestor fix (drugs anyone? 8))

Stay cool and chill (the weather in the UK at the moment is Brrrr factor)
