Family History Beginners Board / Where is Amy
« on: Thursday 30 April 15 17:17 BST (UK)  »
 Hi, l hope you can h help with this one, my ancestor Maria Travi   1890-1915 married James Morgan 1887 in 1909, on the 1911 census they have a daughter Amy 1910, l cannot find a birth for Amy but l have found her in and out of City Road workhouse infirmary august to october 1910 with her mother Maria her birth date on infirmary record is 29.12.1909.
Maria died in 1915 and her fathers military record records next of kin Arthur Morgan father but no mention of Amy,
Did she die or did he give her to someone else as has happened as we know.
Going round in circles with this one fresh eyes needed.


Family History Beginners Board / Bridget Clara Margaret Dyson
« on: Saturday 30 August 14 14:38 BST (UK)  »
Hi, l have a bit of a dilema can you help,

When l first put in Bridgets name on Ancestry a tree came up , l never take it for granted that it is right so with my research and the tree l continued to look and it did seem to be right except for a couple of things as follows.

b. 1901 to George and Francis Dyson Tower Hamlets.
1911 census could be her in Lyncote St Dunstans New Road Windsor as he mother was dead and this looks like some kind of home also with a sister Jinnie (could be Jane have not got to her yet)
Outward bound passenger list 1930 address 62 Willfotan St W12 a houswife with sone John !
Canadian Passanger list  says she is Single with son John passage paid by Mrs Airth.
Marriage to Douglas Edward Airth but as C Dyson 1931.
Death Bridget Claira M Airth 1977 apparently death cert says she is Roman Catholic!

Then on Find a grave every thing seems ok except for parents Joseph Dyson and Broughton do l assume they have it wrong am l following the wrong lady.
please any advice.

The Common Room / Family Trees.
« on: Saturday 26 July 14 19:08 BST (UK)  »
Why do people not check what they have on their trees, l am trying to breakdown some brickwalls and when l put my ancestors name in a tree came up and l thought l would check it out and unless my ancestor was popping across the pond every couple of years to one wife and having more children and then popping back to have children in uk he even names his son in US in 1877 the same as the son in UK in 1887 , found other errors as well he has even put my ancestors wife and children in UK on tree but it dosnt make sence, then l thought maybe the children are not his in US but second wifes but there is a baptims in 1877 with him on register. Had my rant feel better now but it is a warning never use other peoples trees unless certain l would rather leave my research unfinished.

mother Sarah Travi
Francis Travi (my grandfather) age 4
Charles Travi                           age 2 (also no birth cert found)

Sarah and Francisco did not marry until 1882 and l have everything from 1881.
but while still searching for my Francis l came across a Baptism in London. (grandad was born Clerkenwell) as follows.
Francis Franchesto
Father Francis Franchesco
occ. Wire Worker.
Mother Matilda Franchesco
Clerkenwell St Johns.

l cannot find anything  on the Franchesco Name on any search.
So have the registra made a mistake in the surname.
