Wow - Thanks Joy!

I think I'm related to half of Utah, and probably Idaho.

Some of my gg(umpty?) uncles helped quarry the stone for and build the Tabernacle in Salt Lake City.

I'm never rude to the Door Knockers, but often wonder if the LDS ones could be distant cousins........... I don't ask.

Joy, that site is so good. My interest in genealogy extends beyond names, I like all the social history attached. They should teach it in schools.

As a former nurse/midwife I am always interested in this area so I felt for a Midwife, Emma Nicholls, whose name is recorded on many Stillbirth certificates and also maternal deaths.

In over 20 yrs of work I did deliver quite a few stillbirths but only ever had to deal with 1 maternal death which was extremely traumatic.

thanks again for the tip, Jennifer

I can empathise with that, Jennifer :-)

Joy what a fantastic site. Just wish more of mine had gone to Utah.

Only someone interested in geneaolgy could say this but just had a great 2 hrs looking at Death Certificates!

Hi ,
just to update you.
What a wonderful lady 'Eastender ' is.
She has helped me with my ancestors who emigrated to Salt Lake via Canada and has visited the cemetery where they are buried.

After the holidays she is sending me not only the photo of my relatives grave but also that of her husband, their son and his wife, who were all next to each other.

I have thanked her privately, but would like to do so on this thread also.

A wonderful Christmas present , thankyou.

Hi, tried the Ellis Island sit, got nowhere, so put a message on ancestry.

BINGO

Got a reply. The family travelled from Liverpool to Salt Lake via QUEBEC !!!

No wonder I could not trace them. Ships name MONTCALM.

Thankyou for all your advice have stored it for future use.
Regards Sylvia.
