Hampshire & Isle of Wight / Lilian Elizabeth Melita Bell
« on: Wednesday 10 March 21 12:22 GMT (UK)  »
I have a newspaper report of Lilian Elizabeth Melita Bell marrying Mr Diaper in 1951.  She dies as Lilian Elizabeth Melita Diaper in 2002 in Winchester, born 17/08/1929.
Her parents are named in the newspaper report as Mr & Mrs James Bell.

Lilian G B Draper marries Mr Luke in 1919, then, after his death, marries James W C Bell in 1923.
They appear to have 4 sons from freebmd, one born Southampton, James in 1924, one born in Alverstoke, Reginald in 1926. Then 2 more sons born Southampton (1934 and 1937).
On the 1939 the father is away, Lilian G B Bell(1897) with James and Reginald showing,  then 3 redacted entries., then Harry Draper, father-in-law. 

On the newspaper report she is referred to as the Bell's only daughter, so she is probably hiding under the thick black line with the 2 presumed living brothers.

Can anyone find a birth for her, please?

The Common Room / Lost a Post
« on: Thursday 07 January 21 10:34 GMT (UK)  »
I was working on a post at the end of 2020 and within the thread the name of a lady came up as Joan Iris Head born 1919.  The name of Pike is also connected.
I cannot find it on searching Joan Iris Head in the search box.
I tried searching on another 3 name person and found them immediately.
What am I doing wrong? 

As an irrelevant comment, I have sometimes got to interesting rootschat threads just by putting the name into Google.  Mr Google supplied me with articles about the sex life of an 81 year old pensioner - is that a reference to my search history?? ;)

Tyrone / Addresses at marriage
« on: Monday 12 October 20 22:28 BST (UK)  »
William Warling married Sarah Kyle in December 1881 in Edenderry.

I am sitting here with maps and lists and place names, but to no avail.  Can anyone work out where they both were living at time of marriage?

The Common Room / Northern Ireland Adoption Children register
« on: Thursday 01 October 20 22:42 BST (UK)  »
I have a Certified copy of an entry in the Adopted children register, under the Northern Ireland 1950 act.  Arrived today by post.

The person's claimed birth date (daughter's information) has always been the 28/07/1926.

Under the date birth of child heading it says, Seventh July 1947  (Column 2)

Under date of adoption order and description of court by which made it says 28/07/1926 (Column 6)

Under date of entry it says 30/06/1947 County Court, County of Tyrone... (Column 7)

In addition (column 5) Name of adopter has the mother as a widow, which happened in 1931

It certifies it is a true copy etc etc

I intend to phone tomorrow to find out what is going on, unless anyone can say why it appears to be completely topsy-turvey but that is how it is done.

I attempted to find a sample online filled-in example, but could not get anything.

Is the fact that the person was 21 in 1947 of any relevance.

In addition, in the column for name and surname of child, it just has their first 2 names, though that second name is commonly used as a surname (James).

Any suggestions gratefully received.

Tyrone / Name query and map
« on: Thursday 01 October 20 10:16 BST (UK)  »
To me this looks like Roaghan.  It should be in Fintona/Omagh/County Tyrone.

Is it Reaghan?

Also, can anyone recommend an historical map of Omagh district, as nls does not seem to cover the area?


Just found : Roughan.  Near Clogher?

Still would like help with map,though :)

Ireland / Birth certificate for 1926.
« on: Sunday 20 September 20 19:01 BST (UK)  »
My sister-in-law was told by her Mother that her Father had been adopted, but not to tell him that she knew.
She has his date of birth, in 1926, and that is all.  She does not know who his parents were, where he was born, any brothers or sisters.  Nothing.
She also does not know if her Mother invented the story.
Her Mother was from Portadown, and they lived in Omagh.  Protestants.

I keep reading the Irish sites, and feeling stupid.  Can she get a birth certificate for 1926 without knowing any details other than exact date of birth, and quoting the name that he used?
Forgotten to ask if she knows where and when married, as also keen on a marriage certificate.

Any help gladly received, I feel so ignorant about (Northern) Irish records. Sorry.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Daughter's name please from 1881 census
« on: Saturday 21 December 19 16:22 GMT (UK)  »
Can anyone decide what the daughter's name is please?
This does relate to another on-going thread, but no-one on there has volunteered anything, so posting on here.
Ancestry and IGI SPOILER ALERT has the name as Imon Pooly Parkinson, and the poster on the other thread thinks Inoon.  This might be a different family as daughters found are Kate and Elizabeth elsewhere, but interested in anyone's ideas nevertheless.

Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs / Wrongly labelled photo?

I believe my Mother has wrongly identified this photo, so would like an estimate for date to see which one of us could be correct.

After a few days on the boards this post seems to have completely disappeared - where do I ask what has happened to it?
