The Lighter Side / Re: An unexpected find!
« on: Monday 21 September 20 22:34 BST (UK)  »
Hi

Ive found myself on 2 trees alive and well. For some reason neither had my sister on there. The first tree I found I was speaking to the guy about something else. As the people below grandad was listed as private, I asked who he has listed as it was either dad and me or my uncle and cousin. He went into detail about dad and then about me. Had to laugh at the end because he gave my name and birth date and then said but of course that's you.

Regards

Just a of question.

Where did you get the information about the wedding and when? It maybe that the school was used as a village hall as well

If you can find him on 1939 register it should give you his date of birth. Also as it says about 1878 on marriage certificate, he could have been born in 1877

Albert isn't famous, it's his grandson who is.

None of mine are Quaker Brigid. Either members of the great hall or secular society (think John coltman, the Gimson family, Michael Wright). I'll have a look at the stoneygate address's when I get home.

I think the most well known that could be a relative is Walter sisulu. His dad was Albert dickenson. The connection is that alberts dad was Alfred and his mum was Agnes vann. Agnes's family trace back to a village called misterton in Leicestershire, as does my vann line. Other people's trees have them related, but they have my relatives parents as Richard and Elizabeth vann. The problem is that the baptism record actually says William and Elizabeth. To compound the problem is that my relative was living in sharnford at time of marriage and I can see burials there for a William and Elizabeth, but he is listed at Richards house on the 1841 census, so not entirely sure where this leaves things at the moment on that line.

World War One / Re: RAMC Sergeant with two Service numbers
« on: Saturday 22 August 20 11:22 BST (UK)  »
Hi

It is quite possible for it to be the same person as they changed how the service numbers were issued during the war. I have a few that had 2 service numbers. Someone will probably explain it better than I can, but at the start of the war the service numbers were issued by the regiments, but at a certain point it was changed so that the numbers were issued by the war department or some centralised department. I'll see if I can find a link that explains it better.

This link is the best I can find for now

I do notice someone had a baptism for one of the kids found on ancestry earlier. I'll see if I can refind the link.
