Confused of Knowsley
published by Les Martels - 4 months 13 days ago.

In the case of the duplicate Alfred Bown forenames, have you looked for baptisms to see if they are both baptised as Alfred and not one of them Albert.  It is quite a common combination to make a mistake on.

I have similar problem of loads of family history documents and nowhere to put them.  A friend suggested contacting the Somerset records office in Taunton and donating them.  Haven't tried yet but worth a thought.

When husband Peter discovered - via DNA testing - that he no longer had Devon & Cornwall ancestors he donated all the books he'd amassed on those 2 counties to the relevant FH Societies...however, he has rapidly filled the space with books on Sussex & Kent (his new ancestral counties)!!  The dining room was filled with DEV & CON books for months as we awaited volunteers to come and collect them.  Good luck and speed with your new boiler installation.

 


Chapel/ Bedminster union/Long Ashton Union
published by uphill - 4 months 20 days ago.

Pat, Thanks for replying. I should have mentioned I recently checked both Bristol and Somerset archives online for any records on the Chapel. Also I have checked with both archives - but many years ago -if they knew the location of the registers (nothing)- not done this recently.  Was hoping that maybe someone researching or transcribing may have come across them - as if by magic ?!  There's always hope !


Chapel/ Bedminster union/Long Ashton Union

There is a large collection of documents relating to the Bedminster and Long Ashton Poor Law Union at the Somerset Archives   https://somerset-cat.swheritage.org.uk/records/D/G/bd  There is also a collection under Farleigh Hospital but I cannot immediately see any reference to the chapel.  Contact the Somerset Archives who may be able to be of help.


What does "relict" mean on gravestones?
published by Pat Hase - 4 months 20 days ago.

These memorials are so interesting and some have some awful warnings of mortality!  Relict was used to denote a widow.
