Bev - that is too vague I am afraid, there is no index, and there are about 1200 pages for South Shields alone in one year. It is mind numbing going through page after page, I need an address or village or district even - for instance South shields could be Jarrow, Harton, Westoe, Simonside, Marsden etc. sorry I can't help Linda

Hi Linda, Would you mind checking the 1851/61 Durham census for a James Robson ANGUS born 1850 in Darlington. Father was Joseph ANGUS (mother unknown at this stage). Hope that's not too vague for you. Thanks very much. Best wishes....Zoe, Wellington, NZ

Linda Report 27 Jun 2004 13:59

Zoe in Wellington - can you give me anything else to work on - there are too many pages to go through unless you can narrow down an address or area Linda


Linda Report 27 Jun 2004 14:01

Sandra, there are lots and lots of Pearts in Weardale - which covers a large area too. Can you narrow it down at all, is it Stanhope, St Johns Chapel Eastgate etc etc? Linda


Lisa Report 27 Jun 2004 14:06

Hello Linda - Thanks for the offer! Can you please look for John Thomas Bulmer who was born in Kyo about 1848. I'm hoping he'll still be there for the 1851. In 1871 he had his first child (Daniel) who was born in Kyo. John's wife was called Margaret. Thanks! Lisa
