Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Myheritage dna
« on: Wednesday 17 July 19 19:04 BST (UK)  »
Well l struggled for sometime on which company l should do the DNA with. Which type should l go for a minefield but hoorah myancestry offered a free kit if they considered you worthy lo!. I said I'm looking for my brother who through normal channels have failed to find.
Anyway they said a kit was winging its way to me- it arrived l did it buds in the cheek either side then off it went to USA.
Have to wait a few weeks for the results, but l haven't deluded myself that it will be anything other that a basic kit to lure me in. I see that Ancestry hold the biggest store.
So what am l asking well 1st will l be able to make sense of what they send me and 2nd should l pay to do an Ancestry one to cover  my odds.
Any support welcome especially folk who have done DNA with myheritage.

Hi everyone,
Now l don't want to misled anyone but  I found a man with same name as my grandfather travelling to New York 1956.
I haven't got any evidence to say he came to the states. Problem l have is he left my grandmother to work in England 1947/48 and contact was lost l can not find him either in England or back in Ireland. I have his date of birth and was wondering would the travel records record dob etc
So l could rule this chap out of follow up.
Sorry if message seems a little wordy lol ☺

I have marriage certificate for a chap from Gorey- stating
he is a soldier 1946.
Not sure if this person is dead or alive! May have been born 1925/26. Certificate shows he's a minor so I'm assuming that is under 21yrs.
Any ideas which regiment he may have been in, and who l could contact.
Many thanks for any help

Wexford / Did Kathleen marry?
« on: Friday 08 June 18 18:21 BST (UK)  »
I have a date of birth August 1930 in St John's Enniscorthy (workhouse)
I assume she would have been baptised at the workhouse church. So given that she did marry would she have needed to ask to marry somewhere else in Ireland.
 Who would hold such records? Would information be given freely or data protection kick in with the line of research.c
Oh so many question  ???

Yorkshire (West Riding) / Boxer Styke
« on: Monday 20 June 16 20:49 BST (UK)  »
Family folk law has Henry/Harry Bolton born 1880
Parents John & Elizabeth  Bolton residing Islington Holbeck Leeds.
Story tells he was a bare knuckle boxer and sometime money lender.
A person contacted me many years ago saying Styke as he was known had boxed in the yard at Tommy Wass Dewsbury Rd Leeds. This person claimed they had a photo of a boxing belt he had won. She said it was similar to a Lonsdale Belt.
Anyone who can confirm if this is true would be appreciated

Witness on marriage certificate 1965 st Nicolas of Myra Francis st Dublin.
Joseph Freer was witness with Joan Farrell.
Bride & Groom now dead and maybe the witness too.
Marriage on 31st December  Patrick Stanley & Mary Power.
If you knew Joesph or any of others mentioned, where the after 'do' was held anything.
I think Mary may have at some point worked in the fish factory in Dublin!
