Would it be usual for the fact that a mother has died to be indicated on a child's baptism entry?

Hannah Lea (mother-in-law of Emily Sophia Black) 19th c.

While we're solving the mysteries of my great-grandmother Emily Sophia Black (or Smith, or whatever) who married Robert Nield, I'd also like to look into earlier generations. Hannah Lea was the daughter of John Henry Lea, a butcher, and married Robert Nield (son of Robert Nield and Eleanor Pinnington). They were the parents of several children including Robert Nield who married Emily. I'd like to know more about Hannah's family, her childhood, her married life ...

Jersey occupation records

I am all for notification of new records but why would researchers use Find My Past for these records when they have a free index on Jersey Heritage, who have the images anyway. I would also recommend the books by Dr Gilly Carr (of the University of Cambridge) and others that fill in the gaps in the court cases, e.g.possession of a radio set was against orders in the Channel Islands or listening to BBC ...

Kelly/Scott marraige...

The second brick wall I have been struggling with for a number of years is the marriage between John Kelly and Jane Scott.

Jane Scott was born abt 1842 in Scotland and again her age does vary on the census records.
Her ...

William James/David James

Hi, I have been stuck on these two for years. William James is the father of David James. David was born in 1853 in Llanfyrnach, Wales, and his wife was Rachel Jones. William James was born in, I think in 1827. He got married to Hannah Davies on 21/10/1852 in Llanfernach, Wales. William at the time was listed as living at Tycoed and was the son of John James. Hannah Davies lived at Pengawse and ...

baptism query

I've just found a Catholic baptism in which the godmother was the widowed head of household at the address where the baby was born. They don't have the same surname, and don't appear together on a census, so no relationship known, but should I assume there could be a family connection and research accordingly? Or would that be reading too much into the choice of godmother?

Problems remembering/changing password

Hello all,

I've recently upgraded my phone and now I cant log into the app as I cant remember my password. The app suggests using the desktop site to reset (I am still logged into this). But I cannot seem to change my password anywhere. When I log into my profile to attempt to change it, it says that the page is not found. Any help much appreciated.
