Don't want to lose that many. Won't get any younger contacts And if my Ma had lived to 110 then she'd would have been thrilled to be found!!


I'm not sure I've copied Spring's notice properly but here goes.

As I understand it if you hide your 'living relatives' GR doesn't show anyone born in the last 120 years unless you have filled in the date of death box. This means of course that if you don't want to show someone who has died but who was born within the last 120 years you can just miss out their date of death. Although the boxes will read as 'living person' to anyone with whom you share your tree you can still see all the details.

Thank-you all for your replies. I have a few certificates that need to be ordered ahead of these two so I will let them wait their turn. In the meantime as they were married in Worksop I might put a notice on the Nottinghamshire board.

Thanks again

If I am looking for the details of a marriage that took place in the early 20th century do I have to order the certificate from the Records Office/or visit the Records Office or are such records also available to see locally e.g at churches, Local Record Offices and Registry Offices?

Hi Mosh,

My gggg grandmother Catherine Truman married on 6/10/1778 a William Stubbs of Ruddington. He was reputedly slightly younger than Catherine and so born about 1755. After his marriage he farmed in Normanton-on-Soar where his wife's family came from. I'm afraid we know nothing more about him, the information comes from Catherine's side of the family and it simply states that she married a "William Stubbs of Ruddington"

Spotted in the local paper

"Cumbria County Council's Libraries are stepping back in time....Libraries will be displaying photographs from days gone by, hosting local history talks and organising heritage walks....while family history hunters will be offered tips on how to begin researching their own genealogy. Several libraries are offering free taster sessions on the internet service."

Thanks again Flo.

I am sure you will be right. I looked at the 1891 census and my gg gdpa was in 36 and 34 Potter Street with his family, 32 housed a Police Officer and his family whilst number 30 housed a chimney cleaner, his family and an apprentice. I think there must have been some re-numbering since then.

Also town police stations and courts were frequently in the same building; Loughborough, Barrow-in-Furness & Spalding spring to mind.

Thank-you Flo,

Now I know it is definately there I shall add it to the list of places to visit when I get to the East Midlands. My gg grandfather was the Superintendent there for about 20 years.

Best wishes

Does anyone know whether the Police Station in Potter Street is still standing? In 1881 it was at 32 Potter St but by 1891 the address is given as 34/36 Potter Street.

Thanks for all your help. As I am back to the end of the 1700s I think as Darwinsmom has suggested I need to approach the local library and see if they know of any archives, records etc.

And Aghadowey, if I find any Armstrongs or Hamiltons I will let you know.
