Hi mike Long time no speak, been caught up with boatman again and Northampton connections. Yes it is number 31 and it's just coincidence about the AGM. I wondered if that disc was worth buying insted of trekking from Nottingham Elaine

Elaine... Well it doesn't have every thing in it and it's only a list of events....Christenings Burials and Marriages but only brief information..... I think it might be better to put that price towards a Census disk...But don't let me put you off... and theres always me to ask ..... MIKE.

Mike>> I've been going to the records office in Wigston on Saturday mornings as often as i can (work in the week) and am working my way through the parish records of the churchs i knew my ancestors lived near. One of my branches lived in Wigston and i've been through nearly all of the All Saints records but there are quite a few not on there. I know there is another church just down from the records office (not sure what sort maybe baptist?) Does the record office have parish records for non church of England churches and if so where are they? Paula

Greeting's Again Paula...... If you mean the Church next to the Memorial Park (Floral Bed fronts onto Long Street ) I believe that to be a United Reform Church. If your stuck for a church name I find this site useful :- If you type into your search engine ( goggle ) find a church and then click on the link to the directory. then type in the City/Town/ Village you require. I'm not sure where nonconformist Churches deposit they records I'll ask on a week on Sunday at the LRFHS AGM and get back to you..... MIKE.

Our Baptist church deposts records with the East Midlands Baptist Association - I imagine other denominations have similar arrangements. Jan

Hi Mike, Could you help me once again, at the nottingham FHS you can buy a list of baptisms in your families surname for £3-65. Is it possible to get the same sort of thing from Leicester FHS. Cheers. Linda

Thanks Mike Won't be going to the records office for a few weeks now as i'm off to NZ/Australia for 4 weeks on Wednesday. My auntie moved in Oz from Leicester in the 60s and she knows i've started tracing the family tree and shes kept all the letters my grandad and grandma wrote to her since she went (they wrote every weeks for years) She said some of the letters refer to various ancestors so i'm bringing all my family tree printouts over and seeing if we can find out any more about the people Paula

Hi Bev, glad it was right and happy to be of help. It makes a change for me to give help rather than be begging and pleading for it off of you lovely people (creeping in advance!!) Sarah :-))

Hi Mike Could you look up a William Page on 1851 or 61 census Please. Birth 1845 -1846 On 1871 it had Maria Collman Head 66 Hinckley Sarah Haddon sister in law Fleckney William 25 son Leicester Jane 25 daughter in law Thank you Bev

Hi Mike I have now got Daniel Staniforths son Williams birth cert, and know that Daniel was married to SARAH HENDERSON. I am now stuck on her! I have tried the free sites looking for both a birth and marriage, but nothing so am now looking up 1837. I was wondering if you could check out the 1851/61 census records you have?? I know from later census and death info that she was born about 1840 in Earl Shilton/Barwell. They had the first child in 1863, so I am hoping she was still unmarried in 1861, if not she will be Sarah Staniforth (and I will get an idea of which parts of 1837 to check for the marriage). Thankyou lots! Sarah
