hi misty
i not ready to give up just yet ,i rang south shield ,they gave me a number they may do me a look up to see who lived in the house after the 1911 cences ,yet to ring.
im looking into franks first marriage think the may have had a child a frank im going to order the cert ,if frank is his son i also think i have a marriage for him to a nina allison 1940.
i think the death cert i hold for a william francis atkinson is my frank the same little village and the correct dob as frank .
the only prob i have is that an E Atkinson is on the death cert the widow of the deciced ,but its another avenue to look down .

Happy New Year,Sean,
Keep looking,you will get there,in the end


lisaking Report 2 Jan 2010 15:30

hello all
i have looked and double looked ,but im sure you will prove me wrong .
The death cert i have for a
william francis atkinson died 1940
aged 56 that would be the correct age for the william i am looking for ,so i have looked for a william francis atkinson birth 1884 within 2 years there are none anywhere in england so i am hoping you agree would you have a look .
if this is the case the only prob is our william married again after gertrude died in 1929 ,the name on the death cert is an E Atkinson widow .
hope you all had a fab christmas and happy new year to you all xxxxx

What character?
I never go to cat,too juvenile for me ;)

Have it bin deleted then?or can I go have a laugh?


JaneyCanuck Report 4 Dec 2009 23:41

And I've been busy having my character assassinated on Chat. Sadly, I missed most of it. ;)


FannyByGaslight Report 4 Dec 2009 23:01

No ,no sightings in the 1911,please dont go there Janey,I already have the start of a hangover from "happy hour"which turned out to be 3,and me having given up the demon drink some while back can now get sloshed just with a whiff.
So I dont need any more Walls driving me up them...
Unless its the "Walls" make of sausages of course,those are welcome.


lisaking Report 4 Dec 2009 22:55

u both do make me laugh
but jokin aside it is poss that charles was making it up about a sister but i dont think so he had lots of stories about our lou, or the family took another child in as there own as they did in them days adoption was not recorded while later was it so no way of finding out .
i just keep looking hoping but it not going to happen is it x


JaneyCanuck Report 4 Dec 2009 22:38

I did not say *****£$£$£%****, pants on fire Viv.

I didn't say that, because I have never found the right keys for £ on my keyboard. I have to go find it somewhere and copy it if I want it. Or just type 'pounds'.

I was wondering whether I should refresh my memory about all this. There has been no sighting in the 1911, if I'm reading correctly?


FannyByGaslight Report 4 Dec 2009 22:15

Go on then Sean,not as though I have enough to do,but what the heck,I know one side of your family almost as well as I know my own,so lets have the other side just for fun.

Keep it on surnames board then I will know where to look for it !!!


lisaking Report 4 Dec 2009 21:38

what can i say viv x
im lost for words ,thats a first x
and looks like we going to be a record post .

FannyByGaslight Report 4 Dec 2009 21:21
