Technical Help / Keeping up with Answering Email
« on: Tuesday 23 March 21 06:14 GMT (UK)  »
Hello All,

I know I am a disorganised person but having gmail is not helping.

Some years ago, when I had another email provider, it all came in through Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 and I had numerous folders set up, eg DNA, Hodgson, Urgent Answer, and as I read each email I moved it to the appropriate folder.

I don't think I can do that with gmail.

Sometimes you don't want to answer an email the same day - it needs some thought - and I am finding that these emails slip out of sight.

Please tell me what you do.

Is there a programme I can put in front of gmail to do the same thing as my ancient programme used to do? Or can I still use it - but how do I set it up.

Thank you for listening to me,

Good afternoon,

John Hickey had a farm at this place in 1884 when he made his will. It is near Charlton, but I can not see a likely candidate on Google maps.
Thank you for any help you can give me.

Australia / Ideas for Finding this Marriage
« on: Monday 28 September 20 07:41 BST (UK)  »
Good evening,
Family legend has it that great grandmother's sister ? McDermott went to Australia, (either from New Zealand or County Clare, Ireland), and married ? Heneberry - a relation of Fred Heneberry the boxer.

As great grandmother married in New Zealand in 1866 I imagine her sister's marriage would be in the 1860's or 1870's.

I do not know in which state this marriage took place.

Do you have any hints for looking, other than slowly trawling through each state's records?

Thank you

Ireland / Relationships in a Birth Registration
« on: Saturday 06 June 20 09:10 BST (UK)  »
Good evening,

Thomas Joseph O'Reilly was born to Charles O'Reilly and Mary Anne (nee Lynch) in November 1864 in Taghart, County Cavan.
The person who registered the birth was John Reilly, uncle to the child, occupier, of Taghart.
Two questions:
1. Can I assume that John is a brother to Charles? This particular O'Reilly family has been well researched and we (the researchers) have not been aware of John.
2. What does "occupier" mean?
Thank you

Australia / Contacting people who Tag and Make Lists in Trove
« on: Saturday 11 January 20 01:54 GMT (UK)  »
Hello All,

I have stumbled across a woman who is tagging surnames of interest to me. She has only signed with a first name, which I do not recognize. Is there any way I can contact her?

Kerry / Geography Help for BALLNIVRINAGH

Could some one please tell me what the spelling really is.

Gloucestershire / Newent and Littledean
« on: Thursday 08 August 19 05:55 BST (UK)  »
Hello All,

At the moment an Okey/Oakey/Ockey family is in my sights. Some are in Newent and some in Little Dean. As my research is in late 1600's and early 1700's am I safe in assuming that the families are living in either one or the other, and not a mixture?
According to Google, the two places are over 3 hours walking apart. Would a mother carry her new baby that distance to be baptised at the other place. (Both Church of England).
Thank you from Jean in New Zealand

Berkshire / Bowling Alley, Basildon, 1851
« on: Monday 20 May 19 06:38 BST (UK)  »
Hello All,

In 1851 John Albury, a baker and grocer lived with his family in Bowling Avenue.
Can a person who knows this area give me some idea of where to look on a modern map for this road/street?

Thank you
