OK DKA!  I have sent a personal message - I know that before you can send one you have to do three posts - not sure if you can view any sent to you at any time or after the three posts ??? Perhaps someone will enlighten us......    It's an easy site so hopefully you will find my message soon.

Fancy you being in Australia too - small world  ;D

Look forward to hearing from you  :)

Hi

To be able to view and send pms a new Rootschatter needs to make three posts.
This is the information page on Rootschat which explains the personal messaging system.

Hi Valda,  Thank-you for the advice, will make time to absorb all the info on the site - when all fails then read the instructions ......  Would there be any way of tracing the Jennis/Gennis family in Ireland or is there really to little to go on?  Thank you

Hi Edrubava,   Will get back to you soon - trying to absorb all new info and see where I need to go from here. My gr gr grandmother was Elizabeth Jennis (1832) so is your relative her brother William?  It is a small world. Although living in Australia I will always be a Londoner having had 4 generations of my family live in the East End but is a great thrill to find I have a distant relative here in Australia. After reading so much about the living conditions in London in the 19th century I consider it a miracle our ancestors survived at all! Best Wishes DKA

Hi

I would ask for further advice from the Rootschatters on the relevant Irish county board on Rootschat. They will be the experts on Irish records.

Regards

Hello DKA - yes, William (Elizabeth's brother) is my gr gr grandfather!  According to most records he was born in London, which means that William senior, Jane and daughter Elizabeth were all born in Ireland, and they would have come to London around 1833 ish  ???

I have looked into the Irish side of things but with so little information, and not knowing much apart from 'Queenstown' it seems a hard task! 

I too have researched life in London during the 19th century and I agree that it is amazing that we are here - we have it so easy nowadays  :o

Look forward to hearing from you again!
