« on: Saturday 21 November 15 19:34 GMT (UK)  »
Good day. I'd like information on the following people:
Lambertus Bosman, born Aurik, East Friesland approximately 1655. Died 6 Jan 1713 and buried Noorderkerk, Amsterdam. Married at Nieuwe Kerk, Amsterdam on 21 September 1681 to Maria Franz(en) who was born Amsterdam approximately 1656. She died Utrechse Street, Amsterdam approx 1 Nov 1722 and buried 2 Nov 1722. She was the daughter of Frans Fransz. Lambertus and Maria had four children.

I'd like to get information on their parents; their professions; did they have brothers or sisters; any other info would be appreciated.

London and Middlesex / John Ashley and Martha Ann Phelps
« on: Saturday 21 November 15 18:26 GMT (UK)  »
Good day. I'd like to get more information on John Ashley and his wife Martha Ann Phelps. They were married at St Luke's, Finsbury, London on 29 Aug 1863. They had a child, Martha Phelps Ashley (did they have other children?) born London 1870 (when exactly?) and she died 7 Aug 1956. Was John a farmer? Where and with what? Who were his and his wife's parents and where did they come from? Any information on them would be appreciated - even their grandparents, etc.

Photo on front page of the Cape Times - years ago.  Some years ago (I guess between 1948 and 1851) my Dad fell into the Cape Town harbour, with his bicycle, while cycling through the docks.  It was a weekend.  They went to look at a boat (ship?) that was burning.  Ambulance arrived as well as a photographer - Cape Times - after the event.  Would it be possible to get a copy of the photo and the article?

Good day.  I'm trying to find out information regarding my Father, Ian Neville Bosman.  He was born in Cape Town, South Africa, on 8 March 1934.  His Mother was Beatrix Dorothea Bosman.  She was born 18 June 1911.   She never named the Father - I'm trying to find out who this was...  She married later in life to Clifford Woulidge and they had a daughter, Lanice.  Any information would be truly appreciated.

London & Middlesex Completed Lookup Requests / Foundling Florence Mary H Ashley
« on: Saturday 22 August 15 18:04 BST (UK)  »
Florence Mary H Ashley was born 13 February 1907 and passed away 1989 at the age of 82, Gravesend, Kent.  She was a Foundling and I have very little information about her life prior to leaving England in 1939.  I've not been able to find any records about her Foundling life.  Could anyone perhaps help?  Many thanks, Braam

Immigrants & Emigrants - General / Charles George Henry Behm
« on: Saturday 22 August 15 12:49 BST (UK)  »
Good day.  I'm trying to trace information regarding CGH Behm and his parents.  His Mother, Elizabeth (Elisabeth) Behm (nee Haberer?) was born in Germany 11/07/1868.  She came to England 1897 (1911 census).  1911 census also indated that she'd been married 13 years but no reference to her husband, George Behm.  I don't have any info from the 1901 census or any after 1911.  CGH Behm born 29/07/1903 in England, however seemed to only come back to England as per school record 20 April 1914 till 7 September 1917 - St Paul's Knightbridge.  This indicated that his last school was in Germany - not sure which school.  I have no info on his Mother during WW1 internment.  CGH Behm changed his surname to Benn in 1930 - I have information from then on, including his marriage to Florence Ashley.  Could anyone help with info prior to this, including for his parents?  Many thanks.

Europe / Elizabeth and George Behm
« on: Monday 17 August 15 19:48 BST (UK)  »
I'm looking for information about my Great-Grandparents, Elizabeth (Elisabeth?) and George Behm.  The only information I've been able to find is as follows (most from the birth certificate of their son, Charles George Henry Behm, 29/07/1903, (later he changed it to Benn)) :

Elizabeth Behm (don't know her maiden name, something like "Haberor or Haberon"?) born 11 July 1868.  Nationality German and place of birth "Palone"?  She went to England 1897 and worked as a cook.  She was interned WW1 and reported to police weekly WW2.  Died Chatham 1944.

George Behm listed as being a domestic Valet.  Not sure whether he went to England with Elizabeth - nothing mentioned of him.

I would love to get more information about them - birth, marriage or death certificates.  Not sure how to do it?

Many thanks


London & Middlesex Lookup Requests / Florence Mary H Ashley
« on: Monday 17 August 15 19:12 BST (UK)  »
Florence Ashley, born 13 Feb 1907, was a Foundling.  She is my Grandmother on my Mother's side.  I live in SA so it's impossible to go through any records in the UK.  I have very little information about her, as the topic was taboo.  Could anyone help?

Many thanks
