hi thank you for letting me know ....jean .


Jacqueline Report 14 Apr 2015 13:22


Jacqueline is NOT around.

If you want help, you'd do better to post a thread of your own on the board including info about who she married.

And then delete the post from this thread to avoid duplication of lookups

I have just put a post on the community board as u suggested haven't searched any trees yet as I have only just starting use this website and still a bit confused and thanks heaps for your help I didn't no there was a third marriage I have no idea when he was born and have no birth or death certificate for him either so happy I have a starting point now


Jacqueline Report 12 Apr 2015 11:21


Any comment on all the info posted?

At least say that you've seen it, please.

Repeating your request won't alter the results

And you would help yourself by following the advice about getting a copy of one of his marriage certs

Have you done anything about looking in search trees, as suggested?

And I also live in Australia too and am finding it really hard trying to track family and would appreciate any help at all. Thanks Sandra.

Having re-read the post, you are of course, correct.

The absence of punctuation meant that I mis-read it.

Thank you for putting me right.

I think Leslie is Sandras father.

There is this record of Edna heading to Australia:

Name: Mrs E Hodson
Gender: Female
Age: 36
Birth Date: abt 1919
Departure Date: 27 Apr 1955
Port of Departure: London, England
Destination Port: Sydney, Australia
Ship Name: Orsova
Search Ship Database: Search for the Orsova in the 'Passenger Ships and Images' database
Shipping line: Anderson, Green and Company, Limited
Master: P Guenmmal

She is a shop assistant born 1919 accompanied by Mr L Hodson born 1941, and Miss J S Hodson born 1946 , so I think that should read " Leslie born 1941 my father" ie it's Leslie who is Sandra's father.

Address in uk 10 Osborne Road Wallesey Cheshire. L and J S are described as son and daughter of Mrs E respectively, and all three are classed as 'single' (note at head of column says widowed or divorced to be classed as single).

Jacqueline hasn't visited this thread since October 2012.

You would do much better, Sandra, to post a request of your own.

In the meantime, get a copy of one of the marriage certs to find out how old he said he was, and whether he knew his father

This is the info you need to order a cert from the GRO

One bit of your post is very puzzling.

If Ernest was your father, how could he have died at the age of 2 months?

Hi I wonder if you're able to search electoral rolls for Sheffield? The address is 77 spring vale road Sheffield 6. Herbert Newbould died in 1954 and I'm interested in finding out who lived there with him before and after that date.
Fingers crossed and thank you in advance!

I wonder if you can help. I have found an Elizabeth Cook b 1887 in Addlestone, Surrey on the 1911 census living at Staines Union Workhouse, Ashford, Middlesex. I know she had a son called William Cook b circa 1907 and I can see on that census that there is a boy of that name and age living in the same place, with what looks like a possible older brother called Henry Cook b 1906, both birthplaces listed as Sunbury, Middlesex. Are you able to find any records of their birth for me - I would like to be able to confirm Elizabeth as their mother and maybe find their father.

Many thanks.
