The Common Room / Stick to Direct Research?Never!
« on: Saturday 23 December 06 12:00 GMT (UK)  »
         I was contacted last night by someone on Genes Re-United about an apparently minor cousin of my Family on the extreme edge of my Tree.This was an Albert Ellis Owens born in Hawarden Flintshire in 1923,who it appears as it was at that time,was incorrectly connected to my Family.The contact showed that he had a different Mother to the one I had listed in my Tree.
        At this point I thought the only thing for me to do was to delete Albert and his descendants from my Tree,as the Mother I had listed was the only link there was to my Family.
       However I remembered I had a contact from Canada who also had the same details as I had.On contacting him,the contact convinced me that there was still a link between this Albert and my Family,reminding me of Albert's M.I,after his Burial at Flint in 1950,which showed a Martha Kiff was buried in the same grave as Albert.
       This Martha was born Martha Evans at Flint in 1888,and married an Edward Frederick Kiff at Flint in 1923.She was also the Grandaughter of a Benjamin Jones who was born in Bagillt Flintshire in 1827,and who was the brother of an Eleanor Jones born in Bagillt in 1815,who was my Greatx2-Grandmother.
        This Eleanor Jones married an Isaac Evans at Bagillt in 1836,and they had a daughter Eleanor Evans born at Bagillt in 1849,who was to marry a David Conway at Hanley Staffordshire in 1870.
        Eleanor Evans and David Conway had a daughter Alice born at Hanley in 1870,who was to go on to marry a Thomas Evans at Holywell in 1892.
       Alice Conway and Thomas Evans had a son George E Evans born in Bagillt in 1900,who was to go on to marry a Sarah Humphreys at Northop in 1919.
       George E Evans and Sarah Humphreys had a daughter Margaret Eleanor Evans born at Bagillt in 1922,who went on to marry an Albert Ellis Owens at Flint in 1946!
      So I am able to prove the true link between Albert Ellis Owens and my Family,and also prove to myself that the earlier research I did into the Jones/Evans Families of Bagillt is correct and not hopeful speculation!
     Of course the moral of this long and perhaps rambling tale is;that if I like some researchers I encounter,had merely concentrated on my Direct Line,I would have not had the contact on GR last night,who unwittingly proved a lot of my research was correct!

P.S.-For those who worry about these things,all the people I have mentioned above are deceased!

Happy Christmas.

Merionethshire Lookup Requests / Catharine Parry 1841-1851
« on: Friday 22 December 06 12:36 GMT (UK)  »
Catharine(sic) Parry in the 1861 Census is shown as being born in Llanfor Merionethshire in c 1816,and is show as a Widow living in Trefor Uchaf.Also in her Household are her sons;Hugh born in Llanfor in c 1841,Evan born in Llangollen in c 1851,daughter Jane born in Llangollen in c 1845,there is also a "lodger" William Parry Widower born in Llangollen in c 1810,who I strongly suspect is a relative.I can't find any trace of Catharine or the children in 1851 or in 1841,and am hoping that someone else will have better luck!
