Hi Penelope, This could quite possibly be them. They have proven to be the impossible couple. I have been on Scotlands People and IGI but there is no marriage to be found. The son I have is Edward born 1872. His Marriage cert shows his parents as James Sim - Ann Henderson. His birth cert shows the same but includes the marriage place and date. As you say there are loads of James Sim in Aberdeen I know I've been though quite a lot looking for them. James the son was born in Peterhead, Aberdeen. They are going to be my mystery family. Lol. I'll get them one day. Very grateful to you for trying anyway. Thanks Brenda.

Hi Penelope, Just found a Thomas Milne Sim. Father James Sim and Mother Ann Henderson born at Peterhead, Aberdeen 1860 died 1862. Does this help any thought he would be on 1861 census with brother James. I'm still looking. If I find anything else I'll let you know. Thanks Brenda.

If you have a min, could you do a 1841 lookup on Mary Ann Stirk of Yorkshire please? I dont know her parents names, but she may have been born in Leeds. She was born 1827/1828. Thankyou.

Hi Penelope thanks for the offer. I have the following family living at Angel Lanes Aston under Lyne in 1861. James Shaw 55 watchman Elizabeth Shaw 54 Mary Shaw 27 frame tenter, cotton Sarah Shaw 25 Robert Shaw 16 They were living next door to James (21) and Mary Shaw who I think was their son. (I know from James and Mary's marriage cert that his father was also James). All of the above are listed as born in Oldham. If you could find any of them in 1841 or 51 I would be very grateful. Thanks again Kate

Hi Pen, Sorry for delay in replying. Being unable to find my G'parents wedding date etc is the root of my brickwall, so thought of adopting different track to narrow down the search for the wedding date ? Hope you and all GR's have a merry christmas and a happy new year. Best wishes to all Merv

Hi Pen, I don't know whether it was me not looking at the right time but I had the impression you had been away - scratching piggies backs etc? Hope Christmas has been good for you and your menagerie. I have a new problem in one Harry Geldard Dixon c.1889 but the Dixon is his adopted name and I don't know the date of his adoption. Guessing his original surname could have been Geldard, I found a Harry Marsden Geldard born Hunslet Mar Q 1888. Please could you find him in 1891 as I cannot see him in 1901. Many thanks, David

Thanks Pen - you are a star!! On the 1871 census there was listed an Alfred Frost - born in Dudley, Staffs married to a Hannah from Ireland - so not sure if there are two and I may be wrong or whether one is a typo... If you have a moment I would be grateful if you could look up in the 1901 census... The details are William Frost - born Rochdale - 1867 Wife - Emma Swain - born 1880 possible sibling - John A Frost born Rochdale 1892 thanks again for your help!! Nick

Hello!...Can you plz do a look up for a Thomas Mogdridge and his wife Anna (nee whyte) born around 1840 in the 1841, 51 and 61 census. They emigrated to Australia both aged 27 in 1867 with their 3 children Annie, Thomas and Lizzy. I think they lived in England, possibly london area. Any information would be much appreciated.

Hi Pen, Looks like the 1897 Harry Marsden Geldard died and was replaced so not the Harry Dixon I also found in 1901. Thanks for your efforts. I will keep the Dixon family on file until my friend finds the more recent info on this family, in Leeds library. David

Hi Pen, Thank you for all your help. I will use this info to continue my research and will order their marriage certificate to confirm the names of their fathers. The marriage matches the birth of their children Annie (1964), Thomas (1865) and Lizzy (1867). Do you know the marriage cert reg number as i havent been able to find it myself. Thanx again for the time you have given this one :)) Take care, Cindy
