Family History Beginners Board / Experience with Nuns
« on: Friday 21 September 07 23:51 BST (UK)  »
I have just found out that 2 of my great,great aunts were nuns, the elderly relative that informed me of the fact has not a clue which order they were with. She thinks they served in Asia, but that is all. I have  spoken to the Parish Priest of the church that they attended and he gave me the contact details of the Order that most girls from the parish joined. They dont have any knowledge of them.
Where do I go next ???

This Family Tree business is certainly strange, 6 months ago I would never have thought I would be in correspondence with a religeous order of sisters

Any help would be greatly recieved

The Lighter Side / Stourbridge, which county ???

Which county was Stourbridge prior to the boundary changes, I always thought it was in Worcestershire. Both Shropshire and Worcestershire message boards have it in their list of towns

Hi
You can tell I'm new to this Family History business. Could you please explain to me this cousin thing, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and so on cousins. Then you have 2nd cousins removed ect. I only know who my cousins are, I bet I have plenty of the others.

Thanks

Worcestershire Lookup Requests / NASH - Stourbridge
« on: Tuesday 18 September 07 13:07 BST (UK)  »
I am new to family genealogy. I am trying to find out any info on my 2xG.Grandfather James Nash. I know in 1881 that he was 35 years old(ish) and lived with his wife Mary Ann and children at High or Hill Street, Stourbridge, the census says he was born in Bentley, Worcestershire but the hand writing is v.v poor. He died in 1890, Stourbridge. I can not find any info prior to 1881.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

Simon
