Marriage of Albania SJ Prett

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Terry Report 26 Feb 2013 23:00

I would like to find out who Albania SJ Prett married, I have no date, just that she was born in 1877 and died in 1959 in Kent. Any help would be appreciated, thanks

On previous thread Albania married Mr Arnold so presumably she re-married ... or maybe just took the surname of her new partner

Don't you mean you are looking for a marriage for Albania TO Mr Prett ?


GlitterBaby Report 26 Feb 2013 23:25

Well the death was just a guess on my part and without buying the cert it would be impossible to say if she was Jay


Margee Report 26 Feb 2013 23:50

Thanks, Glitter. I started to post before I saw your post re: a previous thread. I've been made a fool of again!


GlitterBaby Report 27 Feb 2013 00:00

No way

I only remembered it because I posted on it. Not sure how any member would have twigged it.


Terry Report 27 Feb 2013 11:29

Sorry to offend anyone, I'm new to all this, I thought if I posted on the previous thread no one would see it because it was a couple of days ago, wasn't trying to make a fool of anyone!!

Terry - when you post on an existing thread, it pushes the thread to the top of the board again.

It's always best to continue with an existing thread if it is about the same family. Not only are duplicates against T&C, duplication also means that the same research is repeated - much to the irritiation of the members involved! ;-)

When ever you log onto the site, check the 'My Threads' under the Tools heading to the right of this page - that way it's easy to find previous threads you've created or posted on, and to be able to see if new posts have been made.

Thanks for letting me know, should I delete this post? If so how do I do it? Thanks


GlitterBaby Report 27 Feb 2013 12:26

When you are looking at your thread you should see some options above your first post – Report, Edit and Delete, Mark this as answered.

Click on Delete and a warning appears – Are you sure you wish to delete the selected post? WARNING: If you are deleting the first post in the thread, it will delete the whole thread. Given two options – OK or Cancel

When you go back to your original post then you can edit the first posting if you want to ask for more help. Or as already said adding any new reply to the thread brings it back to the top of the boards.

May be better to rephrase your new question as Looking for the husband of Albania S J Prett.

Albania Prett didn't marry anyone, she died as Prett


GlitterBaby Report 27 Feb 2013 12:35

Have you read the original thread as the posting of that possible death was pure guesswork by me based purely on her christian name and year of birth.

If she is the same person then she could have married a Prett or just lived with someone.

Why do you think she was not married ? Have you found a birth for her as Prett ?


Margee Report 27 Feb 2013 12:52

But wasn't the birth of Albania Sarah J. Jay, 1877, Dover her?


GlitterBaby Report 27 Feb 2013 12:56

Unless Terry buys the death cert we are not going to know either way

Mike * Report 27 Feb 2013 13:38

Can't see a marriage for Albania Arnold... or a death either

There doesn't appear to be any other birth or marriage for an Albania S J ( or Albina )

The odds are it is the same person as the DOB matches.

But I agree, buying the death cert is the only way forward, if only to eliminate her.
