hi

i've not been doing this for long but my main search is in Sheffield. Up to now its just the same pattern in the line i'm following, same house, same christian name and same job (cutlers) back to early 1800's. Be interesting to see what happened before the steel works became so big. And before that house was built ha ha......

must admit, my great, great, great grandad's name changing from Frederick to William really threw me   :-\   ;)

Mine are just around worcester, warwickshire, hereford the birmingham area.
 Allthough my father when he was in the Royal Marines 1924-1936 had the jolliest time by all accounts (So you never know!!!). 
 I am a 10 pound pom in Australia came out on my own and married a Australian. Planned to go back home to live but stayed here and love it
I did think someone else in the family emmigrated, it was of my fathers generation .
I still say home for Uk I lived in Kitts Green Birmingham till I turned 21 in  the November and left for Australia soon after.

Family history says our JENJINS family came from County Cork in Ireland during potato famine between 1842 and 1846.  We think they went first to Que., Canada then were in Chateaugay, Franklin County, New York by 1850.  I am finding research for Ireland very hard, few records actually online. John JENKINS (m) Mary/Maria SALMON DWYER.  Both (b) late 1700's to mid 18teens, ages changed at each census, seems no one remembered their age but I tend to believe more the age they gave when they were younger.

England seems to be my  primary ground...both sides of the line.  Now if I could only get a better understanding of the various counties in the land I might have a better understanding of where places are and their proximity to other areas...geesh, wish I had paid more attention in geography class when we studed Great Britain although I think our primary focus was on the provinces of Canada!! ???

My mother's family always hung on to the story that my grgrandmother was some sort of blue blood or at least carried the title "Lady"....not too sure how high up the aristocratic line..but some where in the group.  Well so far all I have found is that she appears to have been a store clerk and laundress...must be a new realm of aristrocacy I'm not familiar with!  ;)

But I keep plugging on and who knows maybe there is a drop of blue in these veins yet to be discovered  ;D

So England is the place with all its county "shires" that I can neither pronounce, spell nor relate to.  But thank you for this wonder site and the great people who take pity on my simple questions and state of ever confusion providing wonderful advice, information and suggestions on my continued quest to find my crown and castle....but the truth would just be fine.  :)

Maybe it would be easier to ask....Where aren't u researching??????


Sometimes I can't remember who came from where, married whom and who was named what!!!

I am researching England.....(countless counties!)..........India..(some odd sounding places-which are now in Pakistan ???)............Aden...(south Yemen, Africa or sumthing).............Ireland...(but theres no records left!!!)..........and then of course theres all those births in numerous other countries along the way, just to add to my utter confusion!

Maybe my life would be simpler if I hadn't asked those first questions of my origin!! :-\

Hi there! I'm researching  mostly Ireland (Westmeath)
my greatgrandmoter's parents Patrick Simon/simmons and Mary Kennedy were from there around 1850/60.My greatgrand mother name was Briget Emily end she ended up in China!! (Honk Kong) around the end of 1800 or very beginning of 1900 there she married Prosper Francis D'Agustine from Corsica but by then an Engiish citizien teacher  at the Queen’s college in Honk Kong there in 1903 was born my grand mother Olive Kathleen Simons/Simmons-D'agustine. To that end the research is very difficult because I can't find any records for the British Colonies. My grand mother Olive travelled wiyh her family all  over the British Empire ,Malta and ended up in Italy were she married an Italian  etc 
Help Pleeease!
Ciao
