Thank you very much for your most constructive help. I think that I am one step nearer to understanding the proceedure. How does one delete the threads not required now?

No probs.


Zack Report 20 Oct 2008 07:06

Hi Cynthia,thanks to your tips I have succesfully asked for help now all I need to do now is get into the Parish registers , do you have any tips on that.
I need theCivil parish of Ruiston County /Island: Somerset, also the civil Parish of West Coker
Hundred : Houndsborough Barwick and Coker.Does this make sense to you? Kindest regards Marie from OZ.


Cynthia Report 20 Oct 2008 09:37

I think that if you perhaps google the places you mention, there may be some reference to registers. If no luck there, then perhaps as specific query on here may help. If you type Somerset into the query box on the left hand side, it should show you other questions which have arisen plus possible answers! Regards. (I've recently learned how to do that! so just showing off!)


Zack Report 21 Oct 2008 01:42

Hi Cynthia,You are entitled to show off , I will cheer you on, I hope in time I will be able to do so as well.
Thank you for the tips ,I will try Google first . Kindest regards Marie.
