I think Pandasmum is in midlands, and Im even further south.

Are you in and around Sunderland, unfindable?

I did look at records office in Sunderland last time I visited in Summer but that was for another part of the family.

Judging from Pandasmum's comments she is William Golightly relative, where as I descend from his sister, Jane. Both point to a George Golightly c1872/75.

On my Nan's birth certificate, father is George and mother has Ruth Ward (maiden name) so at least that answers the first part, but like Pandas mum, then gets super confusing as seems to be several avenues to go down next and not one seems clear.

Even marriage certificate between George and Ruth is spurious, as one previously suggested seems to have a different spouse Gillogley vs Golightly, which I guess could be an error? I am going to order it anyway and see what turns up.

I realised later that this is a very old post.  Originally started in 2008 and Pandasmum was last active in 2010.

Yes, an old post but this thread may still be of relevance for deandon perhaps?
The marriage entry (post 4) is likely to be at Tyne and Wear Archives if anyone is able to visit.

Welcome to RootsChat deandon :)

Oh yes, RTL, however old a post is, it may well have some interest to someone at a later date.  Family history never goes out of date  ;D

Absolutely! Iíve been going over a couple of old threads from 2004 and 2018, both hold information relevant to two of my family names  :D

Hi, have just received notification that someone has replied to this message which I'd forgotten about. I did send for my grandfather's birth certificate and found I had entirely the wrong family! I have now been able to trace my Golightly family back to c1675, thanks to a small fortune in sending for various certificates, the Bishop of Durham's transcripts and a visit to the Weardale museum.  ;D
