Northumberland / St John PRs 1728 Newton
« on: Saturday 19 August 17 22:21 BST (UK)  »
Please does anyone have access to the St John, Newcastle upon Tyne PRs or could point me in the right direction to look myself. I cancelled my ancestry sub as the amount of use couldn't justify expense on a pension :-)

I would like to see the actual image if possible of this marriage as I am not convinced that Robley is the correct name for the bride....mis-transcription?

This from Fam Search.....
Name    Robt Newton     
 Spouse's Name     Mary Robley   
 Event Date     10 Aug 1728   
 Event Place     Saint John,Newcastle Upon Tyne,Northumberland,England 

Many thanks Sylvia

Kerry / Kerry Parish register help please - Mara - McClure Aug 1859
« on: Thursday 09 March 17 19:15 GMT (UK)  »
Someone very kindly put up a link to the Catholic Parish Registers and for the first time I have found my gg/grandmother in the flesh (so to speak) ;D. A very kind Priest sent me a transcript of this years ago but gave this 'one' daughter the name of Sara Francesca

However I wonder if you can help re the entry please. It looks to me like Sara and Francesca....twins??? Most of the entries above and below are one name

As a bit of interest my dear old Mum always said that her g/mothers were maternal twins, and I have never found a further baptism for Francesca. I do know for a fact that Nana and Grandad were noted as cousins when they married

New Zealand Completed Requests / WW1 ancestors, more sites to check
« on: Monday 04 May 15 21:26 BST (UK)  »
I don't know if these have been added before but I was sent this email and they look quite useful. Happy hunting

Start by searching for them on the Online cenotaph at www.aucklandmuseum.com/war-memorial/online-cenotaph – there will be basic details there, and a link to their military personnel file at National Archives, which you can read online and download.  Don’t forget to leave a poppy for them.

(If they were in the Australian armed forces, go here  http://discoveringanzacs.naa.gov.au/ instead.)

No ancestors served in World War 1?  Feel free to adopt one at http://www.shadowbattalion.nz, then go to the online cenotaph to learn more about them

Australia / A friend's brother died in Victoria
« on: Tuesday 02 December 14 06:17 GMT (UK)  »
Hi folks
Hoping someone can point me in the right direction please
A friend's estranged brother died in Victoria  (Melbourne?) in 1996. He possibly committed suicide.
She would like to know if it is possible to get a copy of his death cert, any newspaper report and/or coroner's report?
Where would she apply?
I won't mention the name in case it's too recent but can be PMd if it helps
regards Sylvia

Northumberland / Fam Search restriction on records?
« on: Sunday 18 May 14 09:03 BST (UK)  »
I'm hoping someone can help please. I was going to have a browse of the Bellingham baptisms and burials but Fam Search is giving me this message.....

This image is viewable:
•  When using the site at a family history center. 
• To signed-in members of supporting organizations.

Is this a new thing or am I missing something? I always thought these "browse images" were always available (although time consuming  :D)

The Common Room / FindMyPast newspapers
« on: Thursday 27 March 14 20:29 GMT (UK)  »
I've found a really good article on FindMyPast about a court case in the family. I would like to cut and paste the quite large piece to a separate doc so I can print it off. Is there an easy way to do this...right clicking doesn't seem to achieve anything.
Help please
