Armed Forces / Naval Record - Clarification required please!
« on: Wednesday 03 March 10 00:31 GMT (UK)  »

Have located the following record which is a very good possibility for one of my ancestors within the National Archives Documents Online section:

Description Name† Bennett, Michael John
Official Number:† 239354
Place of Birth:† Swansea, Glamorgan
Date 12 October 1890
Catalogue reference ADM 188/425†
Dept Records of the Admiralty, Naval Forces, Royal Marines, Coastguard, and related bodies

My query is, what does the date signify? Is it the date of birth of the subject?



Ireland / Anyone going to the National Library of Ireland? Look up request...
« on: Friday 12 February 10 13:16 GMT (UK)  »

Apologies for being cheeky here, but I was just wondering if anyone would be kind enough, if they are going to the NLI and, if they had the time, to do a look up for me please?

I'm trying to trace the RC baptism record of my x 3 great grandmother Mary Leonard, who was born in Tipperary c. 1832 with† all of the English census returns she's listed on giving her year of birth as 1832.

She married a soldier of the 47th Regiment of Foot in Clonmel Registry Office in June 1848, so, presuming she married in her home parish, I would be hoping that she might be listed within the following set of records at the NLI:

Clonmel: St. Mary's, Aug 5 1823 - Dec 28 1842 Pos. 2461

No father was stated on her marriage certificate, but it appeared to have stated her name (i.e. Mary Leonard, Servant). However, having consulted with the Clonmel Registry Office, they informa me that this is almost certainly her mother's name, thus indicating that Mary's father was not known.

Any assitance with this would be greatly appreciated!



Roscommon / Confused...are there two places called 'Ballinamore' in County Leitrim?
« on: Saturday 02 January 10 19:32 GMT (UK)  »

Might anyone be able to clarify whether there are two places called 'Ballinamore' in County Leitrim?

My Great, great grandfather's military service record says that he was born in the 'Parish of Ballinamore, in or near the town of Leitrim, in the County of Leitrim' (Bold text indicates the handwritten elements of the service record).

Now, I can see that there's a town called Ballinamore, in the parish of Outeragh, however, this is almost 25 kilometres north east of the town of Leitrim.

Yet, there would appear to be references to a place called Ballinamore much closer to the town of Leitrim, which is located right on the border of Co. Leitrim and Co. Roscommon adjacent to the 'Ballinamore and Ballyconnell Canal, very close to 'Carrick On Shannon'.

So...would anyone agree that it's likely to be this second place, even though it doesn't appear to feature in the Griffith's Valuatio searches...the nearest placename being classed as the 'Road to Ballinamore'?

Any assistance would be appreciated thanks!!



Would anyone be kind enough to attempt a clean-up of the attached photo please? If possible, I'd like to get rid of the creases and the white specks please...!



Lancashire / Images of All Saint's Church, Great Nelson Street, L'Pool
« on: Monday 02 November 09 17:37 GMT (UK)  »

I seem to be searching, without much luck, for any existing photos of All Saint's Church which was located on Great Nelson Street, Liverpool.

It was demolished in the early 1960's as part of the mass clearance of the Scotland Road area.

Might anyone have any photos, or know of any available of this church please?



Lancashire / Scotland Road area, Liverpool - What schools c. 1884??
« on: Wednesday 28 October 09 08:36 GMT (UK)  »

I was wondering if someone be able to assist with this please?

Iím trying to whittle down a list of old school records Iím looking to search. The child in question was male, living at Rachel Street, Liverpool (Rachel Street ran/runs between Scotland Road and Great Homer Street, and was close to Wilbraham Street to be more precise), and was C of E in terms of religious denomination, the time period Iím interested in being c.1884-1890.

Might anyone know of any schools that were in the area that would be a good starting point for my search?



Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Place of Birth??
« on: Tuesday 04 August 09 13:06 BST (UK)  »

Can anyone tell what they think the middle entry on the attached segment of a census place of birth colum reads please?

I know for certain that the top line reads 'Wolverhampton', and that the bottom one is clearly 'Liverpool'. Does anyone agree that the middle one reads 'Wigan, Lancash'?


Hi† :)

I was just wondering if anyone would mind doing a look up for me if they have access to any of the Manchester Trade Directories within the time period specified please?

I'm trying to locate a Martin Manion, who was a Cabinet Maker by trade, who I suspect was in the Salford area between these years, after appearing in Liverpool on the 1881 census with his family.



Glamorganshire / Where's Michael?
« on: Friday 03 July 09 13:00 BST (UK)  »

I'm trying to locate my x 3 Great grandfather Michael Begley on the 1911 Census, and was wondering if anyone would mind seeing if they can spot him via the search facility please?

Obviously, I'm not asking anyone to access these records - I'm just after a fresh pair of eyes on the search engine, as I seem to have run out of name variations to search for!

He was born c. 1851 in Ireland and is on the 1901 Census, residing at High Street, Swansea, Glamorgan with his wife Johanna and a couple of their children.

However, I have located Johanna on the 1911 census, and she's living with one of their daughters, with there being no sign of Michael.

FreeBMD has deaths for both a Michael and a Johanna Begley registered in 1915 and 1912 respectively (and both registered in Swansea), although I have yet to order them to prove conclusively either way if it relates to them, although they seem to be the only relevant ones on there.

Can anyone help please?† ???



EDIT: I have just obtained the original image of the census, and it states that Johanna's 'married' and not 'widowed', so, presumably, he must be out there somewhere??
