Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / DNA Phillips name
« on: Thursday 29 March 18 09:25 BST (UK)  »
I recently had my DNA results back which I've posted on a different thread.They were pretty much as expected for me the only surprise was I'm 3.8% Ashkenazi Jewish while my sister is 1.1%. Ever curious I decided to look at my surname origins and at only the second name I googled Phillips it mentions Ashkenazi Jews. My maternal grandmother was a Phillips.

I only did the test because two other family members refused to so I really don't have much idea what I'm doing, but it is fascinating. Can anyone who does know what they're doing tell me if I may have stumbled on the right track.

Many thanks. 

Warwickshire / William Hayes/Sarah Morris marriage.
« on: Monday 22 January 18 18:59 GMT (UK)  »
We recently got our g.g.grandmothers birth certificate in order to find out her mother's maiden name.
Harriet Selina Hayes was born on 6th September 1853 in Hampton upon Arden, Warwickshire. Her father William and mother Sarah formally Morris.
We have been unable to find a marriage for Harriets parents and wonder if anyone could have a look in case we've missed something.
We are aware that on some trees they have a Sarah Smith down as Williams wife, the couple married 15 August 1841 in Warwick.
Harriet had four siblings born in Hampton and another two in Birmingham. We have census details for the family. Harriet married our g.g.grandfather John Phillips and we have had help on his line from Rootschat in the past.

Any help finding a marriage for William Hayes and Sarah Morris would be great. Thank you.

The Lighter Side / Family Tree records books
« on: Thursday 30 November 17 10:57 GMT (UK)  »
I wonder if someone can recommend a family tree record book that can be handwritten by me and will allow me to go back to about 10 generations,I want to be able to include my grandchildren.

My mother and father's paternal family names will die out eventually as my father and uncle are in their 90's and had no sons. For this reason I think it would be nice to have a handwritten record to pass down .

Thank you.

Warwickshire / Munitions factories Birmingham W.W.1
« on: Thursday 08 June 17 14:15 BST (UK)  »
I have just received a copy of my maternal grandparents wedding certificate and notice that both my grandmother and my grandfather's father were munition workers.  At the time of the wedding my gran Celia Grace Phillips lived in Belmont Passage and gt.grandfather Walter Benjamin Ainsworth in Fawdry Street both Aston.  I was wondering if there was a munition factory nearby where perhaps they worked. Any help would be appreciated.  I have looked at some old threads and realise it's probably wishful thinking on my part!
Thanks away.

My late aunts fiance was killed  18 April 1945 in Italy and is buried at Argenta gap war cemetery. He was in the Coldstream Guards. I read a little today about the Battle of Argenta Gap and there is a mention of the 24th Guards Brigade.  Can anyone tell me if this refers to the Coldstream Guards.  Thank you.
