Mark, why have you started another thread instead of returning to your previous one?



SylviaInCanada Report 19 Jan 2013 01:51


there is information on the other thread

Please return to your threads, without starting new ones.

I have sent a pm to Mark, a la Cynthia, to let him know how to return to threads!!!

Sorry. Still new on Wasn]t meaning to be duplicative.Jjust not sure where he was born so thought I'd try both Woodstock Oxfordshire and Worcester. I I Have all the census info. I'll be honest. All my previous research has involved USA and pre USA American Colonies .based stuff. Didn't want to pay the World Membership. Just USA Membership.

There are several trees on ancestry regarding the Phelps family

Of course, the information on ancestry trees MUST be taken with a huge pinch of salt ......... especially as most of them do not have documentation

However, one of the trees show Edward as ..................

Edward Smithsend Phelps 1816 –

This may be your tree .................. I suspect it is ................... but the possibility that Edward had a second forename is important to help us search for information for you.
