Inverness / Re: Jane Smith

I wonder if you have taken into account that in Scotland Smith is quite often spelled Smyth. It drove me crazy when working on my counsin's tree.

I had a similar problem when trying to trace one of my great aunts, she had been in an asylum for over 40 years. When I enquired how I could access her records I was informed that I would have to prove my identity and lineage through a series of birth, marriage and certificates, even after doing that the local NHS trust could refuse my request. I was lucky though that she died just over 100 years ago and now I can see her records without proving anything, just like anyone could if they were interested in her.

Family History Beginners Board / Re: Trying to find Charles Cusworth - Photographer

I am related to Charles, he is/was my 3rd great uncle but am unable to add anything to what you have already found. I find it odd that he just seems to pop up in Derby having been in London and then goes to the USA. I have seen numerous newspaper articles about a Charles Cusworth living in Hertfordshire in 1899 who was foreman of jury which found Mary Ansell guilty of murdering her sister, he disappears from there after 1900. I wonder if they could be one and the same or is it a big coincidence.? Sadly the newspaper reports do not give his occupation as they would today.
