I suspect the bible belonged initially to my 3rd great grandfather Stephen TOLHURST, the 8th child of ...

Newcastle criminal's on line

The Daily Mail have run a story today about a new on-line resource being set up by the Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums service. It's worth a look at the article - even if you don't have ancestors who may appear in the line up, the photos are wonderful.

On line records for Tasmania

Hello everyone

I am trying to research a friend's family, some of whom went to Tasmania in the 1960's as £10 Poms.

I have been unable to find any online records of their arrival, subsequent marriages, deaths, where they lived etc.etc.

Do such records exist?

Rita

William LaFayette Oran

I'm trying to find my great-great-grandfather William LaFayette Oran's parents. The earliest record I can find for him is the 1870 Census for Meigs County Tennessee. He is listed as William L Orrand born in 1849 in North Carolina. The record for his wife Susan and daughter Mary have been switched with the wife and child of the person above him. He married Susan McCracken Kelsay in 1868 in Washington County Tennessee. The 1870 and ...
