Jeremy, although I know its been suggested you contact JerseyLily, no one is quite sure of she is still a paying member.
However, if you message her off-board by clicking on her name, she will be able to reply to you.

Non-paying members can reply to messages but can't instigate them or post on the boards.

Hello Pam.

I'm trying to track down a death that occurred around 1840. The subject is Anthony Daffy Swinton, formerly of Norfolk and London. I'm pretty sure I've found my target in 'The Channel Islands' section of the Utah Historical and Genealogical Magazine, Vol 7 for 1916 (in a version available free online), where he's recorded as dying on the 4th November 1840, aged 73. The latest previous record is ten years earlier when he was finalising bankruptcy proceedings in London. I have no idea what he may have been doing in the Channel Islands in 1840, assuming that the record is correct and he did die there (the Utah magazine contains no details of cause of death, location of death, etc).

Unfortunately the Channel Islands section in Volume 7 is the second half of an article that started in Vol 6, and is missing all info about the sources of the information provided in the article, and I haven't been able to find Vol 6 anywhere myself Including via Family search, etc). is there any chance you could point me in the right direction? Maybe a copy exists in the Channel Islands somewhere?

Many thanks for any help you may be able to provide.

There are births for a William Maurice Choux, and a Violet Alexandrine Choux in St John's parish Jerseybetween 1907 and 1924, but no dates or details of parents are given, so I have no idea if they are relevant.

Hello I am hoping you can help, I have a Maurice Henri Choux born 1878 Paris I have found him on the 1901 Census living St Ouen, I know his date of birth & death but not his marriage to Annie Biles about 1906/7. He also had 4 daughters Henrietta,Florence, Ruby & Marcelle born between 1907 to 1921 plus a daughter Emaline born before his marriage about 1905, is it possible for you to check on his marriage & births of his children & if there were more than the ones I have.

Hi Rita

I am very much still around.

The only thing I can do is to look in the birth indexes and that will only bring results if Pittaway was his birth name and not the name of his adoptive parents. I'll see what I can do.

Hi Rita

I haven't seen Jerseylily around for several months.

and GR does not send out notifications re new postings on threads


May I suggest that you send her a pm (personal message) ...... just click on her name, type your message in the box that appears, and submit it.

GR will then send her an email to tell there is a message waiting in the internal system on here.




Good luck
