john hobbs 1740 gaddesden, herts, where did he come from?
« on: Monday 27 July 15 13:24 BST (UK) »
Hi All
So ive been researching for a while now and have come to a halt.  My 7th great grandfather, John, was born in great gaddesden herts in 1740 yet this is no proof of this.  I cant find a baptism to research further back and now dont know where to look?
Ive used the free sites and county/parish records so far
If anyone can help advise further i would be grateful
Thankyou
Chris

Hi Chris

I have quite a bit of information for you. I do know that your 7th times great grandfather was not born in great gaddesden, that is why you cant find any records for this. would you like to private message so I can forward the information to you or would you like me to post it on here.

awaiting your reply
kim

Hi

If you pass/receive info thru the personal message system then you run the risk of cutting out help from the rest of the Rootschatters, who do not wish to waste time/effort duplicating research on detail already known.

Regards,

Ray

It does say as part of my registering that i am aloud to use the pm service does it not?
It is also the discretion of its participants what and how information is shared. To say the information is not going to be shared is highly presumptive.

Hi Kimmie75, share the info anyway you please:) i appreciate your help.

We only share sensitive information by pm - say for information on living folk. Just replying opens up the topic to anyone who wishes to comment ;)

Thanks for clarifying sarah. I didnt want to stir trouble but i also understand if someone has put in alot of effort that it also be there discretion, particularly if its been a financial cost to the exploration.

Kind Regards
Chris
