Lancashire Lookup Requests / Re: Death Dates? How can I find them?
« on: Saturday 18 July 09 16:21 BST (UK)  »
I don't often bother with death dates either but..........

If you think they died in Lancashire try http://www.lancashirebmd.org.uk/  There are lots of John Holts after 1911 so you will have to take a chance on the right one.  The age is not always correct on a death certificate.  Were they still alive when the children married?

Martha will be under her married name

You can also try Freebmd but it is not complete.

London and Middlesex / Re: WHEELER Family, London

Hello

Have you looked at the IGI http://www.familysearch.org/eng/default.asp
There is a thomas Wheeler baptised in St Olave Southwark in 1736.  He could be yours.  Best to try to find more children to see if they are  named after parents.

You could check your other queries on the same site.

The only trouble with London ancestors is that they could have come from anywhere.  A lot of people headed to London during that time as I know to my cost.

The Common Room / Re: Family history is thoroughly corrupted
« on: Sunday 28 June 09 11:58 BST (UK)  »
Yes this subject has been discussed many many times.

Many years ago before the internet was popular I sent a copy of my tree to a distant relative.  I had researched it on Parish registers at the LDS.  This person put it on Rootsweb.  It is now on Ancestry.  One of my ancestors who died in 1851, I have the death cert, was resurrected in America with a new family.  How clever.

Use the trees as a guide only and check everything

The Common Room / Re: Should I continue with my tree?
« on: Monday 22 June 09 10:56 BST (UK)  »
My children are adopted and are not interested in my family or their"real family".

However I was showing my grandson part of the tree which had his surname and started with my husbands parents and he said "I want to be on there"  I am busy producing a family tree, with his name on, for his 18th birthday.  What he does with it is up to him but it is keeping me occupied for hours.  I'll have to stick it on to some wallpaper as it is about 4ft long and 2ft high.

Annie if you go to your nearest LDS centre you will be able to order the film of the parish register for a very small fee.  Then you will be able to view it on microfilm or microfiche.

Nick29  The mormons were able to film the parish registers on the understanding that they would allow anyone to view the records, so not that generous.
