I have a massive database of Derbyshire records including Parish records.I will continue to answer any queries, even though my long-standing and well-received original Thread has been DELETED!!!!!



Gee Report 26 Nov 2009 18:45

Who deleted that Derek..GR?



Derek Report 26 Nov 2009 18:49

Hi Ginny.......apparently.........I'm very unhappy about much work..all gone......still.......I'm still here, and I hope everybody realises that.


Gee Report 26 Nov 2009 19:02

Thats a lot of work and info just wiped out. Have you asked why?

So sorry Derek thats really poor. Keep up the good work though, you've helped hundreds of people.



Derek Report 26 Nov 2009 19:12

Thanks're an Angel


brummiejan Report 26 Nov 2009 19:30

Derek, it's very good of you to start over! May I ask what years you can look at please?


jerseylily Report 26 Nov 2009 19:59

I am really upset for you that your wonderful thread has disappeared - thank goodness I'd made a note of all the fantastic information you've sent me over the last few months.

Do I need to re-send you my Wombwell request, I can put it on your Notts thread now having discovered it when looking for the Derbyshire one.

Good job the sun's over the yardarm!

Hi jan..good question, because it gives me an opportunity to repeat the information i headed my defunct thread with.

I have full Parish Records for about 65 Derbyshire Parishes.most of them from about 1650-1900.........others don'y go as early as that becasue the parishes were not formed that early.

I also have access to all the census records 1841-1901..nationally not just Derbyshire..and of course national BMD's 1837 onwards..

Plus a whole host of other Derbyshire records.

And!! the tragedy of losing all my work is that i veruy often travel to Derbyshire records Office at search records that i don't personally own.

And i do this all totally free of charge.doesn't make me a saint becasue i have become hooked on it, and therefore it is my treasured hobby..and i enjoy the often tortuous paths it leads's like doing extremely difficult crosswords.

And apparently people love just reading my thread!!



Derek Report 26 Nov 2009 20:10

Hi pam.......make sure you Bookmark this thread..and yes please send the Wombles to me again.cos at the moment i have nothing to do!!! lol

Glad you noticed the Notts thread!!..though I don't have the resources for Notts that i do for derbys......but I'm a crafty so and so..and can forage quite well!

Please note that i have "Who are we looking for in Derbyshire" on the Tips Board..

and an insignifcant little East Yorkshire Thread!!

and yes..the bar is open!! xx



jerseylily Report 26 Nov 2009 20:27

I know exactly how you feel, like you I'm hooked on the unravelling process and spend a lot of time at the Jersey Archive looking things up for others, especially as all my lot are in the UK and there's not a lot I can do from here.
Unfortunately at the moment nobody's looking for any Jersey ancestors.

I've pasted the Wombles of Wellow on the Notts thread. Luckily, as it was a bit involved I'd put the info in a Word document before I sent it to you.




Cynthia Report 26 Nov 2009 20:41

So sorry about your thread Derek, I know it was very popular. The same thing happened to Sue's Help Us To Help You Thread on TTF a few weeks ago. No idea just went! GR gremlins maybe?

However, we did just the same and started up again.......keep up the good work sunshine - we won't let them beat us will we?

Go for it!!!


brummiejan Report 26 Nov 2009 20:44

Derek, might I ask you to look something up for me please in that case? A long shot, but here goes!

I have a relative born about 1771 in Derbyshire - either Lenton or Linton. At first I thought she was married to a John Myatt but I am not entirely sure, she might possibly have been unmarried. . In any case her name was Maria Myatt.

Thank you!



SylviaInCanada Report 26 Nov 2009 20:45

Sorry to hear about the disappearance of your thread Derek

It makes no sense at all.

Hopefully GR will give you some sort of answer ..... though Sue has never received one!



Derek Report 26 Nov 2009 21:09

Ok........I'm welling up..thank you Sylvia..Brummiejan Cynthia and Jerseylily.....and i'm not joking..just a touch of the moisture behind the eye ball!!! aren't you all just lovely...........!!......but enough of this sentimental nonsense..........back to work!!!!!



brummiejan Report 26 Nov 2009 21:11

Yes, Derek, enough of this slacking!!!


Derek Report 26 Nov 2009 21:15

Sandra E...........sorry Sandra..Renfrewshire is a longway from Derbyshire....I don't have those resources.......I have found 11 marriages of John Gray around 1919 in Scotland.but no way of knowing if any of them is yours....



SylviaInCanada Report 26 Nov 2009 21:18

here's a hankie Derek ......... just washed and ironed!


Derek Report 26 Nov 2009 21:23

Brummiejan..Hi you say..back to work.......but what a challenge first up!!!

All I have found at the moment is:-

I'll look at the two places you mentioned.......Lenton is is Nottingham...Linton?? I'll get back to you
IMMEDIATE EDIT.....isn't it funny how anger and frustration make you more determined????????? Linton is in the Parish of....................................................CHURCH GRESLEY!!!! wow!!

Hi Derek

I have a William Chatterton marrying a Maria Wild in about 1826. Can you find this marriage?
Also, I believe this Maria Wild was born in Hayfield in about 1803, but don't know her parents??
