You cannot get the cert info online you need to purchase the certs from GRO for £9.25 each


Gavin Report 2 Jan 2012 22:30

ah yes, have tried this before, cant seem to get actual cert info... only lists of names with book references.... is that correct or am i doing it wrong?

Bernard Bonner born 1821 Leitrim Ireland and

Mary Carrol born abt 1825 Monagan Ireland

You seem to have some sort of 'family history' already.

As Flick says, the only way to verify it is to check certificates and then census material, and eventually parish records etc.

You have previously been directed to freeBMD in another thread.

EDIT: Looks like our last posts crossed :-)


Gavin Report 2 Jan 2012 22:24

you got there before


Gavin Report 2 Jan 2012 22:21

all correct Kucinta

I think her mother was Evelyn Glover 1895 - 1924 from Middlesbrough
Father William McKie 28/07/1896 - 1950 from Middlesbrough

You need to start doing some fact-based research, Gavin.

Get the marriage cert as a first step.

There is no point trying to folllow what you 'believe' to be the line.............


Gavin Report 2 Jan 2012 20:43

there is only information on my grandfathers line on the other thread.... not on my grandmother Rose's line...


Gins Report 2 Jan 2012 12:31

Theres info on your other thread about this couple


Gavin Report 2 Jan 2012 09:34

Looking to trace both parents of my maternal grandmother.
Lived in Newton Bewley, Billingham, Cleveland, was born in Middlesbrough.

She was married to Stanley James Shepherd, they had 4 children;
Sandra Shepherd
Jean Shepherd
Valerie Shepherd
Alan Shepherd

I believe Rose's history to be;
Father - William McKie 1896 - 1950
Mother - Evelyn Glover 1895 - 1924 (any history for her line would be appreciated)

I believe William McKie's history to be;
Father - John Mulcahy 02/03/1868 - 05/02/1900
Mother - Rose Bonner 24/02/1866 - 10/09/1907 (any history would be appreciated)

I believe John Mulchay's history to be;
Father - Laurence Mulcahy 1836? Ireland?
Mother - Margaret Herron 1843? Ireland?
History on either would be appreciated.

I am told the name changed from Mulcahy to McKie following the move from Ireland to Middlesbrough, when the accent could not be understood so they changed to spell it similar to its sound.....?

Any history for Rose and her ancestors would be appreciated.

Thank you
