Annette I have posted on the thread you have added on General...You only need one thread on this otherwise people will duplicate searches, 'Find Ancestors' is the best place to post as General chat is really just for chatting on.

Use 'My threads' in menu to find your posts for info already posted by helpers.

I am not sure of his forename at all.

My GT Grandad was John Thomas Joyce

My Grandad was John Thomas Joyce

Although my father is John Patrick

why on earth did you post on two boards - I have been putting info on the one on General - wasted my time didn't I

Annette

Annette Report 5 Jan 2013 17:25

Not sure abt that!
My Gt Grandad was born in b'ham named John Thomas
There are no John's on that one

My Gt Gt Grandad surely must have lived around Bham

JohnT's Father's name will be on John T's marriage certificate.
Saves speculation.

so, can you delete your posting off "General" before other people waste their time as well

Rambling Rose

Rambling Rose Report 5 Jan 2013 17:28

It's not just the two boards, some of this info has already been found and now seems to have been deleted...Annette PLEASE stick to this one thread and provide all the family details you know.. looking for individuals is easier if helpers know how you got to them in the first place....ie marriages you have already found, parents, locations...

I think the best thing to do is try and work back from information that you know is correct.....sooooo, what was the name of the person who died in 1967 and where did they die?

Annette

Annette Report 5 Jan 2013 18:08

It was My GT Grandfather John Thomas Joyce who died in 1962.
His death went to probate whereby a bro or son called Patrick gained
He was born 1885-86?
Married Martha Lock 1912
Lived at 52 Aston Boulevard in 1955 census with Martha still

I have no idea how to find his father on here.
I have sent away for marriage cert

My Grandmother married Lock/Joyce Oldest son John Thomas Joyce
he was born 1912!

Right , this is from Freebmd.org.uk

Births Mar 1913 (>99%)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Joyce John T Lock Aston 6d 865


If you look there and enter Joyce/Lock for births after 1911 you will be able to see the 'likely' other children, born in the same area...including a Patrick.
