Glamorganshire / Dodd Family 1861
« on: Monday 29 June 20 16:50 BST (UK)  »
I have the Dodd family on the 1861 census in Ystraddyfodwg:  (RG9/4063/70 p 12)

Abraham Dodd   36  b Blackwood, Mon
Sarah Dodd   44 b   Breconshire
Wm Dodd  17 b Ystradyfodwg,
Catherine Dodd 14  b Ystradyfodwg,
Evan Dodd    10 b Ystradyfodwg,
Abraham Dodd  6  b Ystradyfodwg,
Daniel Dodd 3  b Ystradyfodwg,
John Dodd   6/12 b Ystradyfodwg,
Sarah Daniel 19

Now I have found Abraham Dodd senior on the 1871 census as a lodger and shown as unmarried. But have not found any of the others on the 1871 census.  I have also not found a death for wife Sarah.

I have all the siblings after 1871, it is just the 1871 census I am missing.

Any help please

World War Two / Frederick Evan John
« on: Friday 22 November 19 15:34 GMT (UK)  »
Looking for any information regarding Frederick Evan John, member of the Royal Corp of Signals in WW2. Thought I would try here first before applying through military records.

Frederick Evan John was born in 1916 Cardiff. In 1941 Frederick was in Egypt and was apparently injured or was taken ill and recuperated in Egypt.

Am doing this for a friend and that is all I have at present.  If anyone can help my friend will be extremely grateful.


Other Countries / Hook - Mauritius
« on: Monday 16 September 19 23:23 BST (UK)  »
Am helping a friend research his family.  His father Desire Regis (or Regis Desire) Hook (deceased) was born approx 1937 in Beau Bassin Plaines Wilhems Mauritius. Think his father was Walter.  That is all we know at present.  He did marry in Mauritius, lady surname Amiran but children born UK from 1965 to 1970.  Any help locating any Hook's in Mauritius welcome - Thanks  Ray

An oldish photo with some blemishes, would love some improvement, thanks

Would really like some help getting this photo back to something like the original.



Armed Forces / Transportation
« on: Tuesday 10 July 18 09:59 BST (UK)  »
Have found a record for a family member (from 1833) who was transported to Australia for 14 years for a military crimes.  The first crime was desertion but I just can't make out the second crime - hoping a rootschat member can pick it up.  The family member is Robert Foot, shown just below John Robertson who was transported for the same crimes.

I then have a marriage for John in 1891 at Chadron Nebraska to a Mary M Murphy born 1871 in New York:
Name:   John W. Foote
Gender:   Male
Race:   White
Marriage Age:   24

Marriage Date:   26 Oct 1891
Marriage Place:   Chadron, Nebraska, USA

Mother:   Sarah Foote
Spouse:   Mary M. Murphy

Whilst John gives his birthplace as Kentucky it is the correct John because he gives his mothers maiden name as Tilsley. 

After the 1891 census I have found nothing else on John or Mary.  Any help appreciated. 

I don't need any assistance on the rest of the family has I have them fairly well covered.  Thanks.

I have Nancy Smith born 1777 Staffordshire, believe baptised 18 June 1777 in St Editha Tamworth and married Thomas Allsop 1793 at St Editha Tamworth.

I have Nancy on the 1851 census with son Samuel:

Where born   Wilnecote, Warwickshire, England

Sub-registration district   Tamworth
ED, institution, or vessel   16d
Household schedule number   19

The Ashmore's are all Samuel's family (marries Amelia later) and have all the information I need on him and the rest of family.

What I am missing is a death for Nancy.  I have tried all the possible changes to surname, even looked at a possible marriage (even at 78!!) but have not found a death.  Would welcome any help available.
