History of Ancestors and Spooky Stories
« on: Wednesday 02 September 09 11:04 BST (UK) »
Hi All,

A census website sent me an email invite a join a thread of Spooky ancestor stories from people at a subscription cost. There for I thought this is the best website to have one.

Mine are not stories but strange coincidences!
The most famous we all know but still there! When looking for ancestor Bapt & BMD's more IGI but also others sources, there is always 2 or more entries of an event the year you are wanting but none years before or after.

My best was (Bearing in mind! I have looked up hundreds of graves locations for people) when looking for my granddads grave and found nothing and nearly giving up-sat on a grave stone to have a smoke! There out of the corner of my eye was his grave and nothing really unusual !but it happend exactly the same with his brothers grave a hundred miles away. Sat down ready to give up having a smoke and there gt uncle Sam's Grave. These are the only two times I have found graves this way.

Last in Holmfirth I had looked for a grave of a Abraham for months and one day while looking at a Thomas grave said out load " come on Tommy show me where Abraham is?"
Well late that day in Holmfirth (Summer wine as TV) I had a slit rub with another car.--Right where Abraham lived I found out later.????????? Weired!!

Feel free to put your stories or of the unexplained*on this thread.

In my opinion the marriage residence is not always the place of birth. Never forget Workhouse and overseers accounts records of birth
