Scotland / Information request: Sister Alice Hughes, Glasgow
« on: Saturday 25 September 10 17:41 BST (UK)  »

I'm after any available information ie. Census, date of death relating to an Alice/Alicia Hughes born c.1853 1857 in Co. Laois, Ireland who became a Nun and moved to Glasgow.

I know she would have been in the Glasgow area from 1901 onwards, but could well have been there a number of years prior to this.

Any census info would be much appreciated!

Thanks in advance  :)


Lancashire / [COMPLETED] Liverpool Ironworks c.1870-1890. Where?
« on: Tuesday 24 August 10 14:34 BST (UK)  »

I have an ancestor who was living in Liverpool (Scotland Road area) and who is stated on the 1871, 1881 and 1891 Census returns as being a Labourer in an Ironworks.

Might anyone know where this might have been, or if there were a number of them?

I know there was the Mersey Forge, was this the only one?

Any assistance appeciated thanks


Occupation Interests / Information sought - Ironworks Labourer
« on: Saturday 21 August 10 17:34 BST (UK)  »

I'm trying to obtain any information (general/detailed) on the working conditions someone who was working as a Labourer in an Ironworks would have experienced in the Victorian era.

I've performed quite a few searches online for such information, but nothing much appears to be coming up.

Would anyone be able to point me in the right direction?

Any assistance appreciated!



Shropshire Lookup Requests / Lookup request: Cox, Whitchurch, Shropshire
« on: Tuesday 27 July 10 21:56 BST (UK)  »

Was just wondering if anybody would be kind enough to do a lookup for me please?

Looking for any further information relating to the following two IGI entries:


Elizabeth COX 4th September 1808, Parents: William and Ann Cox
Jane COX       20th August 1810, Parents: William and Ann Cox

Would like to see if there's a potential marriage for William and Ann, circa 1798-1808, if that's not too much to ask?



The Common Room / Same person?
« on: Tuesday 06 July 10 22:53 BST (UK)  »

Does anyone agree that the two men in the image below are one and the same?

Any opinions appreciated thanks

Can post images separately if required as I know the combined quality's not the best.




Does anyone think that these two photos are of the same man?

The older man is my Great, great grandfather, and this photo was taken in 1926. I have just received the second photo from another of his descendants, and, while they don't know his identity, they do know that he was a relative of their grandfather (One of my Great, great grandfather's sons).

I think this second photo was taken in the 1890's so, perhaps some 35 years before the first.

Might anyone be able to merge the two to compare the ratios of the features of the face please?

Thanks in advance!!


Hi  :)

I am looking (without success so far...) for any old photograph(s) of the old barrack housing which was located on Pier Road St. Heliers. Might anybody have any, or know of any sites that might have one please?

I've already tried the Société Jersiaise website and could not find one...

Any assitance would be much appreciated



Armed Forces / Regimental diary - 47th Regiment of Foot
« on: Thursday 25 March 10 12:33 GMT (UK)  »
Hi,  :)

Might anyone have a copy of the regimental diary for the 47th Regiment of Foot between 1866 and 1882 they'd be willing to provide a copy of, before I apply to obtain it from the Regimental Museum?

I know the basic movements of the regiment during this period, but am looking for further detail as I am researching the career of a soldier.



Lincolnshire Lookup Requests / Look-up request: Herbert Wattam, North Reston, 1890
« on: Thursday 11 March 10 21:51 GMT (UK)  »
Hi,  :)

I was just wondering if anyone might be going to the Lincolnshire Record Office, and if so, if they'd be kind enough to look up the following for me...

I would like to check whether  Herbert Henry Wattam, born 14th February 1890 was baptised at North Reston Church please.

The Record office reference for the relevant baptism records is:

North Reston PAR/1/4 Baptisms 1813-1996

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated thanks.
