The Common Room / Re: Someone has put my tree on Ancestry
« on: Saturday 18 April 09 15:09 BST (UK)  »
There have been a nuber of threads on this subject over the years.

Some years ago someone put my tree on Ancestry.  He made a few mistakes.  I was a bit annoyed that he hadn't put me down as a contact.  A couple of years later I looked again and someone else had taken my tree but I was surprised to find that my Gggrandfather who died in 1851 had risen up and gone to America and married again and fathered several children after his death.  Needless to say I don't take other peoples trees as fact and always check.  I use them as a guide only.

I share my tree now with anyone who wants it as I don't think my family are very interested.  It's up to them to check the details.

I've been checking my husbands family tree which is in a published book and have found a couple of mistakes and a couple of mysteries.

Scruffypup do you mean Sowerby Bridge?

Just registering to get notification of any reply to this. Hope you don't mind.

I have Ann Worswick bc 1802.  Married Henry Holgate 1826 Gisburn.  They have a son Joseph so it is possible they are related.  I haven't looked at the 1851 census yet.

Families did move around this area so  they are not necessarily travellers.

London and Middlesex / Re: McQuire marriage

No marriage on the IGI but there is a baptism for David Macquire in 1805 Clerkenwell http://www.familysearch.org/eng/default.asp

As said previously Best to get a birth certificate for one of the children to find the mothers maiden name

Graveyards and Gravestones / Re: Can't afford gravestones?
« on: Sunday 29 March 09 12:58 BST (UK)  »
Well I must admit that my husband was cremated and his ashes scattered at the crematorium so no gravestone for him.  There will not be one for me either if my children follow my wishes and do the same with me.  They won't have the money for anything.  Hopefully my family tree and computer will produce something for them to remember us by.

I found my grandparents grave covered in Ivy.  They did not have a headstone but their names were on the edging.  This must have been added in 1938 after my grandmother died.  Someone must have saved up.

Family History Beginners Board / Re: Birth registrations vs baptisms
« on: Saturday 28 March 09 09:58 GMT (UK)  »
My grandparents were rufused a church burial for their young daughter because she had not been baptised.  She had to be buried in unconcecrated ground.  This was 1920.

Some people couldn't afford baptisms which is why they didn't take place

London & Middlesex Completed Lookup Requests / Re: Help - George Dimond, Hackney
« on: Wednesday 25 March 09 14:27 GMT (UK)  »
Mine, and I suspect Melioras, are booklets purchased quite a few years ago from the East Of London FHS http://www.eolfhs.org.uk/eolintro.htm.  They don't give a great deal of information.  I don't think any are on the net.  If you want a lookup ask on the requests board.
