Kerry / Killarney address
« on: Tuesday 01 September 20 22:09 BST (UK)  »
In the last few days my Irish have been turned on their heads  :o
A real juxtaposition of names.
My query is.. are there anything records available that will show a person living in High Street Killarney between say 1885-1890
My G/father was born there in 1886
My gg/grandmother is listed there in the 1901 census
I want to know if my g/grandmother really did "go home to Mum" to have her baby.
any help really appreciated  :-*

The Common Room / Ancestry thrulines evaluations
« on: Wednesday 11 March 20 23:04 GMT (UK)  »
This may have been asked before but how do I add notes to these please. Ancestry have put up a 4th g/grandmother for me to evaluate and while there are several other trees that have included this lady, I know for a fact (Will dated 1812) that her daughter of the same name as my 3rd g/grandmother actually married someone else. ???
Any suggestions please

Sussex / Sussex DNA
« on: Friday 27 September 19 22:59 BST (UK)  »
I belong to several facebook DNA groups (eg. Northumberland, Scotland, County Kerry Ireland) that use the gedmatch tool to connect with others, does anyone know if there is a Sussex group please. I really would like to know that I have the right families in my tree

The Common Room / Emigration and back
« on: Wednesday 01 May 19 21:14 BST (UK)  »
I have family (husband and wife) that emigrated to Canberra, Australia in 1950. Have just recently found death certificates for them both in the 1990's in Bournemouth, Dorset, so presumably they moved back to the UK. Is there any way to find out when please? I don't know if they had children.

Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Another My Heritage query
« on: Wednesday 06 March 19 21:31 GMT (UK)  »
Just before Christmas I was given a DNA kit from My heritage. I duly joined up (2 year sub), downloaded my gedcom and sent in my kit.
Dna have been returned and results seem to be rather disappointing and most Smart matches are with people from the 13/14 centuries  ::)

My question is ...I have another small tree on my pc (about 10-12 people) of a "possible" connection to my tree. Is it possible to download this to MH as well to see if there are any dna matches

She was possibly born around the 1830-40s and her father may have been James

I've probably asked this before, but any suggestions welcome please :)
I am stuck with my 3 x G/grandfather (nothing strange about that I know) but I'm wondering if there is anyway to find his apprenticeship records.
I know he was a linen/wool draper. I have an idea of who his father may have been but really need something concrete that says John Newton, linen draper, son of ……??
He married aged 24, presumably had finished his apprenticeship some years earlier. Married at St John Newcastle on Tyne on 18th August 1793
