GRO Army Chaplains Birth Indices

I have discovered an interesting birth in the above index, which can be found on FMP. Does the GRO refer to the General Record Office? And if so can I order a certificate?

The birth I am interested in is registered as BCHA Yr 1827 Page 323 Line 249.

Does anybody know how I go about getting more information?

Limits on Assisted Emigration to Australia

As usual I have been diverted to an interesting question. I found a Note in FamilySearch FamilyTree about a family distantly related to my lot, who'd emigrated to Queensland. I'd previously found that they'd left one child behind and the note said in explanation:
The family came to Australia about 1866 ... Owning to the fact they had 6 children and only 5 being allowed on board ship, Aunt Harriet, then 6 years old was ...

Chile BMDs

I wonder If anyone has access to thee BMDs for Chile after the 1930s. I have a Scottish man who went out to Patagonia to work on a sheep farm in 1914. There’s an excellent website called PatBrit which has enabled me to find a few details for him. I know he married in Punta Arenas in 1921 and the Consular Death Indices show that his wife died in 1945. I believe he then married ...

Is it a needle in a haystack?

Hello All,
I am trying to find information on my GG Grandfathers family. He was John Collins b 1887 in London.
He states in 1911 census that he was born in London. On the 1939 register he stated that his D.O.B was 2nd April 1887. On his marriage Certificate he has listed his father as also John Collins.
Is there anyway of finding him on earlier census's with his parents or is this a big ...

Army Alias - general question

I came across a Service record on FMP of someone signing up as John Lee in 1881 but having to sign a Statutory Declarations Act form in 1887 to confirm his actual name was Charles Henry Mitchell. This was almost at the end of his period of service and shortly before he was transferred to the Reserve.

John Taylor Battle of Trafalgar

I am researching a family tree that includes a John Taylor from Lichfield, who according to family legend fought at the Battle of Trafalgar, possibly as a Sergeant in the Royal Marines. The legend was spread by his Granddaughter in the 1860’s. I have looked on the Trafalgar Roll and on Forces, medal records but there is no clear connection. His date of birth is unclear as different census and death records suggest 1774, 1778, ...

Lunsford Research

I am Bill Lunsford and I have been doing genetic genealogy for six years. In that time there is one thing I haven't been able to locate. I am in search of a male Lunsford in the U.K.

So many trees I have looked at over the years seem to lead to the same progenitor as "the" source of our United States lines. Sir Thomas Lunsford (most favored) was certainly among the first settlers in ...
