Re: Ingvald Marius Iversen

Not sure if this will be helpful but I believe that Lloyds Register may record deaths of seamen as well as ships lost. Unfortunately I don't have access to their records although I did find at https://hec.lrfoundation.org.uk/archive-library/casualty-returns that the Norwegian ship Thalatta was lost ...

Have a look at Knowledge Base > Ancestral Sources Template ~ Electoral Register UK to see if that will help.

I suspect what happened is that Bill read a posting, but by his next visit somebody had added a Reply that needed reading. If Bill had not scrolled through all the postings, then on 2nd visit he won't know for sure whether one had been added or not. If you click the small square next to the subject...

Re: Deleting Role Witnesses

@Senelstune

Have you tried the Delete Witnesses for Role Plugin provided earlier in this thread? It worked for me so unless you had a different setup in TMG it should work for you. Please make a backup before running the Plugin just in case there are some unexpected results.

Re: Male child with just a surname on a Birth Certificate

As it is a copy from the GRO I think that I would phone the Registrars Office where the original registers are held to see if they would have a look at the register to check for any possible annotations. You may be lucky and get hold of a helpful person who would like to assist in establishing why a...

Re: Male child with just a surname on a Birth Certificate

Like Mike, I am always curious when the unusual turns up. Just a couple of thoughts that you may have already covered but maybe worth saying. 1) Was there a subsequent registration of the name? 2) Is the birth certificate an original or a certified copy and if the latter did it come from the Registr...

Re: Census, 1939 Register, Electoral Roll

I do know what happened to my parents. Before the war they lived above a shop where my father was manager. He signed up for service and wanted to pass the manager's job to my mother so they could continue to live above the shop. This was rejected so the whole family had to move out. They found a ho...

I am with Mike Loney on this as, in FH, I never need to refer back to the original image as it can be called up from within the program. Yes, I do keep the original images but in a named file system and not a reference or ID form but that is only there if the unthinkable happens and I lose everythin...

Re: What occupation?

I think that the last word is acres - here is an extract of the previous page on the census

Compare 'acres' in that extract with the one in your image and I think they are very similar, so my conclusion is that it is 'Farmer of eight acres'

Mike (Tatewise) Thought I would try this query and was surprised to find that I had over 500 orphans in my project of just over 5000 individuals. Having wondered how I had accumulated so many I then realised that if I then filtered out those that were entered as part of a census the numbers dropped ...

Re: 1939 Register now available on Ancestry.

Slightly off topic but I guess we all have frustrations with the redacted entries. My parents are listed at the address I was born with three other entries that are redacted and I would love to know who they are. Both my brother and myself were born later and as far as I know there are no other sibl...

Re: Electoral Rolls

From my perspective the KB reads well but perhaps I have been too close to the subject - it would help if someone new to recording Electoral Register entries could comment.

Re: Electoral Rolls

The ownership of a property is a bit of a red herring. Prior to 1918 and in certain circumstances property ownership did qualify for the franchise but tenants also had the right to vote if they paid a certain level of rent. Our ancestors did make things easier for us as those earlier Registers give ...
