Re: Are English parish record images online?

Mike,

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I had already looked there. They are available online, but only at an LDS Family History Center. At the moment these are all closed due to the virus. There is one not to far from me, so maybe I'll head over there after things open up again.

Thanks,
Bill

Re: Are English parish record images online?

Ann,

The image Brian posted was for 1695. The other records for the family would range from about 1685 to 1730 or so.

Since I'm not positive I am related to this family (see the thread need help finding Nicholas Henshaw (15790)), I think I'll hold off subscribing for now.

Thanks!

Re: Are English parish record images online?

Ann, Thanks for the reply. I have searched both ways on FindMyPast and found some records for the family. I just don't have a subscription to FindMyPast. I was hoping that some of the records might have more info than what was transcribed into the indices on Ancestry, FamilySearch, etc. For the one ...

Re: Are English parish record images online?

Thanks all for the help and replies. I will check out the Lincolnshire Archives site. I may sign up for a month on FindMyPast to see what I can find there. My searches for my possible Spalding Henshaw connection have not found anything that isn't already in index form on Ancestry or FamilySearch. Th...

Re: Are English parish record images online?

Lorna,

Thanks so much. I should have been looking for "y" with an "e" over it instead of "y" with an "o" over it. After looking at the other writing in the image Brian posted, I can see that it is an "e".

Thanks!

Re: Are English parish record images online?

I see that it is in the Unicode symbols and is indeed a "Latin small y with a ring above it". I couldn't find anywhere what it means or how it is used in genealogy. Hopefully someone will know.

Thanks,

Re: Are English parish record images online?

Brian,

Thanks for the image. I was hoping there might be some additional info that wasn't included in the index. Oh well, it was worth a try.

Do you know what the symbol after his name is that looks like a "y" with an "o" over it?

Thanks,
Bill

Mike, Thanks for the kind offer. I am particularly interested in Nickolas Henshaw. He was baptized at St Mary and St Nicholas Church in Spalding, Lincolnshire on 31 Aug 1695. If you could check any images for him, it would be appreciated. I am curious if there is any additional information I can get...

Are English parish record images online?

I was wondering if any one could tell me if parish record images for Lincolnshire are available online anywhere. I know the indices are available online at Ancestry, Family Search, and I'm sure other places as well. I was hoping to be able to view the actual images of the records if it is possible. ...

Hi David,

Welcome to FHUG. If you have all the information in FH then you can go to the toolbar and use View > Fan Charts... to create a fan chart that you could send via email.

Re: Occupation - Scholar etc

Adrian,

Not to quibble, but I believe the US census is showing the highest level achieved at the point in time the census was enumerated, not the "final" level achieved by that person.

You can click on the icon in the upper right corner of the property box that looks like a magnifying glass. This will display in the focus window the person you are looking at in the property box.

Re: Not able to do full backup

The medium and full backup options are only available if you are using a project.

You can tell if you are using a project by looking at the title bar of the Family Historian window. If it says "Family Historian Project", then you are using a project. If not then you are not using a project.

The Navy Air Force didn't come into being until October 1919 and only in the Pacific Fleet. The Army Air Force also existed at this time, but they of course would not have had the word Navy or Naval on their hats. The US Air Force did not come into being until after WW II ended.

Yes, this will work very well. Thanks for continuing to explain it to me. I finally understand what you saying.

This will be much easier than adding the Departure and deleting the Emigration.

Actually quite a few do have more than one emigration fact so the named list won't help all that much. I would have to skip a lot of them and then do it manually by adding the Departure fact, adding all the citations, copying over the notes to the Departure fact, and then delete the Emigration fact....
