Family History Beginners Board / Free searching 1800 - 1000
« on: Tuesday 30 June 20 08:46 BST (UK)  »
Hello knowledgeable people. I am on Ancestry and most of my relatives come from England, one or two from Scotland and Ireland.

Researching them should be simple but I can't conclusively prove links from end of 1700 where Ancestry does not take the DNA link back.

What do I do? I am really not getting anywhere. I know enough that I don't want to 'guess' or just take 'possibles' but I just can get anywhere.

What am I missing?

Thank you regards Janice

PS this child's name is especially strange 'Bartholomew Frogley Dale (1749-) ' as I found where an Ann married a Bartholomew Frogley. Is there a cross over. Did Ann marry twice. HELP please

As an added conundrum.... it is HIGHLY unusual in those time for a couple to have sooo many children before they marry. Bartholomew and Ann had 7 children before they married in 1769. James Dale was their first. Can someone think about this for me because I feel VERY unsure this is the right combination. HELP please. ??? ???

Hey Col C, don't know if this will work because it is the only reply I can click on. I agree, James is the obvious, but then Bartholemew is in the children. What is the internet link you've used? thanks J

I thought I was more than a beginner but I am forced to ask for the higher wisdom of you lovely people. I CANNOT progress James Dale. 5th GGF. I believe he is linked to Helmsley, Yorkshire and had a son William Dale 30 Nov 1785 , Helmsley, York, England my 4th GGF. Most of the hints keep going to Bartholomew Dale but I really don't think that is right. It seems they have carried on naming after the previous father with James, William and Thomas so I just can't buy Bartholomew. I really need help please. Thank you in advance. Janice Lee  Dale
