Durham / Flint Mill, Urpeth.
« on: Wednesday 29 January 20 18:20 GMT (UK)  »
Hi just got a copy of my grandads birth certificate, it says place of birth was Flint Mill, Urpeth. Can anyone tell me, 1. Is this still standing, not sure if itís one building or set of houses?  2. How far away from Beamish Open Air is it and 3. Has anyone any photos of It/ them

Thank you

Here is a photo of my mam and dads wedding. It was 20th July 1946 in Horden, Durham.
I donít have the original photo as this was sent to me from a cousin. I have never seen this before. Unfortunately it is creased right across their faces I am not sure if you can help as it is a small image but even if it could be made clearer would be great. I am trying to work out the other faces around but itís difficult. Any help would be gratefully received.

Lanarkshire / William Michael Connelly
« on: Sunday 19 February 17 19:06 GMT (UK)  »
Hi I have hit a brick wall with a ggg grandfather. His name is William Michael Connelly. I have very limited information on him. From a census in 1911 I found he was born in Partick in circa 1861. He had Irish parentage. He moved to Sunderland around 1881. He married Margaret Turley in Sunderland in 1896. He died in 1912 father of 7. I am trying to find his parents, where do I start when I have no details of them. I have found a family living in Govan at this time with a slight change in the spelling of the surname Connolly. Father Peter and Margaret, mother with two daughters. But nothing to confirm this.
Thank you

Durham / Forster family Beamish
« on: Wednesday 14 August 13 20:08 BST (UK)  »
I have posted a couple of years ago regarding this family. Unfortunately I am no further forward. I have literally hit a brick wall and dont know where to go next.
I am looking for any information anyone can give me on my grandfathers three brothers.
My grandfather was John Robert Forster, born in Beamish in 1891. He was the eldest son of Thomas Forster 1860 and Mary E Thompson 1870-1902. My grandfathers brothers were Thomas (Heatherington) Forster, bn 1894, Frederick born 1896 and Alfred born 1899. All boys were born in Beamish and I have found them living with their parents in the 1901 census. Family were living in Gateshead then. However due to the common surname and first names I cannot find trace of them any further.
As I say any help would be gratefully received.

Yorkshire (West Riding) Lookup Requests / Robert Hepworth
« on: Sunday 06 November 11 18:54 GMT (UK)  »
Hi can anyone look up a birth for me and also a marriage. It is Emley, believed St Michaels. Person I am looking for is Robert Hepworth born in 1663 son of John Hepworth 1626. I am trying to confirm his birth/christening and who his mother is. IGI shows a mother of Mary and other children William and Francis. However other members of my family have said John re married an Elizabeth Lockwood. I can find no trace of her being his mother. Can anyone find this information for me please.

What i have got so far

Robert Hepworth born in 1663 married Anna Oxley born in 1664. Their children are Mary Francis, Martha, Mary, John, Robert Sarah, Anna and Hannah. I am a direct descendant of Robert. I believe Robert Hepworth 1663 was son of John, born 1626, John was the son of John born 1604 and John was the son of Henry 1575.
I need to confirm Roberts mother please.

Kind regards Mercel ???

Original posting,404274.0.html

???I entered this post quite a while ago and still struggling to find anything concrete, just wondered if anyone would be able to help again. Really struggling, searching a name like Forster in the north east is like trying to find a Smith. I did do a search on Thomas Forster born apprx 1792 in Tanfield and came up with possible parents of Thomas born 1763 and Jane Collins 1765 married in Tanfield in 1788 but really dont know how to evidence this. Any suggestions please
Kind regards
