Google Search: " Bishops' transcripts"

EmeryPaper (Version 4)

These are copies of the parish registers completed on an annual basis by the clergy and forwarded to the local bishop.

The practice commenced in 1598 but those transcripts that still exist must be checked where possible with the original registers as not all copies are accurate.

- - - -

After 1837, when civil registration started, many clergy ceased to send copies, although some did continue for quite some time.

Bishops' Transcripts (BTs) are useful in that they provide a second record and may have survived when the parish register has not. Details of baptisms, marriages and burials were also sometimes recorded on loose sheets prior to copying into the registers, and it is possible that some BTs may include entries not listed in the parish registers

Bishops' Transcripts

usually at the county record office.
useful for WWII bombed out Bristol churches when the registers burned, but were badly stored and damaged as well.

Passengers stranded by airline collapse:

"Air passengers due to return to the UK have been left stranded around Europe after the collapse of a carrier which had operated for just seven months.
Duo, which was based in Birmingham and Edinburgh, cancelled all flights past midnight after it went into administration.
The move left passengers due to return to England and Scotland having to find other means of leaving Nice in France, Munich in Germany, Shannon in the Republic of Ireland, Geneva in Switzerland and Olbia in Sardinia.

Auditors Deloitte said it was 'uncertain' whether any cash would be available to refund tickets. "

And so got lucky

I had just checked their ticket prices but procrastinated
until I had cash rather than credit to get a return BRUM to Copenhagen and back to go and be a cat sitter at their flat for a friend who has the use of a summer house.


as an OAP i can't afford that -- it was Mærsk Air

Hullo Xxxx

where are you located?

In Canada ?
all is not lost because
there are three likely primary sources you have not touched

all the sources you quote are secondary or worse being created by clerks copying each other at the time and transcribers today each layer introducing more and more errors of well known types.

please read these URL carefully
(saves me typing FAQ)

"A Comedy of Errors" or The Marriage Records of England and Wales 1837-1899. The ISBN is 0-473-05581-3.

The story of the civil registration of births, marriages and deaths in England and Wales in the 1800s,
Michael Whitfield Foster

This Web site aims to help people tracing their family history by explaining the usage of the different entries on birth, marriage, and death certificates throughout the history of birth registration in England and Wales.

You can obtain your certificates from one of two sources

From the General Register Office <<- secondary source
From the local Register Office <<<- your primary source
use genuki

parish registers will record his christening if his parents were christian

3 groups

church of england
- location in church office or county record office
non conformist
(note baptists do not christen children ) - and on the map there is a Netherleach baptist chapel too.
Roman Catholic - was a mission church and records may be in the manse, a record office or arch dioecesan archives

May be lost or destroyed and some are neither filmed nor deposited but still under the control of the vicar and parish council
see the parish chest but the best stuff is not online or even filmed :-(

I do not know if bishops transcripts were made at this time
- a secondary source anyway

TNA also has some registers

you wrote "however I can not find him in the 1891 census. I have searched some of the microfiche at the local LDS Family History Centre with no luck."

which fiche? always list sources
what finding aids did you use?

did he migrate ?
where and when?

Thus, I have hit a bit of a wall when searching for his marriage information. To this date, I have obtained the following information: Grandfather's Name: William Walker Carey Shakespeare (also spelled as Shakespear)

spelling variation is irrelevant and to be expected
in the UK you may change your name infomallly to this day
read and print out

DOB: 1878
- registered in the first quarter of 1878. Parents were sometimes lmor than 6 weeks late in contacting the and lied about the date of birth to avoid the fine for late reporting.

migration direct or indirect
what records ?
last sighting in England and first in Canada ?

gaps may mean a period in a third country or in prison for example, or military service.
(just as in checking a CV today if you are an employer)

Died: 1962 - Canada Australian dreath certificates have considerable detail - as told by the informant.

Location of birth: Ashby de la Zouch (location was found in the LDS Family History Centre records - << again precise sources ? - many name brothers. . and even guesswok in older records

however the 1981 UK census records him as born in Netherseal, Leicester.
well that is where the family farm was so no surprise

his wedding may well be in his brides parents parish or

or even living together if one of them was married and not divorced

My mother's memory places him in Ashby as well. '
did she meet him ?
how old was she then ?

Parents: William C. & Hannah Shakespeare of Netherseal, Leicester.
Siblings: Samuel......I am only aware of this g.uncle through family recollections, this individual however, does not appear in the 1881 census (perhaps born later).
Another sibling named Charles J.W. Shakespeare does appear in the 1881 census, but he is unknown to my family.

look for an infant death Despite the presence of an unknown sibling, I am confident that I have identified the correct information regarding my grandfather.

**My grandfather married Elizabeth Marie (sometimes spelled Maria) Hunt. DOB is 1879 or 1880. Elizabeth died in 1969 in Canada. My mother tells me that she was also referred to as Eliza, so I can not be certain of her registered birth name. All searches to locate my grandmother in the records up until now, have not been successful.

Other miscellaneous information includes the following: My uncle Harry was born in Ashby de la Zouch in approx. 1907 or 1908.

get his birth certificate
My grandparents emigrated to Canada
why ?
exact DATE ?
when Harry was an infant - their next child was born in Canada in 1910. From this I have deduced that they must have left England in 1908-1910.

I have very little else to go on at this time.

the best matierial is NOT repeat NOT on line
but you have hardly touched the tip of the iceberg

follow the money trail
farmers paid tithes and taxes

You better read some books on english genealogy
the help leaflets at TNA
family search help pages
My elderly mother and aunt are the only remaining relatives and, while thankfully long lived, their memories are sketchy at best.
read up on how to interview older peopel
how to stimulate them with photographs
colours , smells for example
I am also dealing with some time constraints at the moment.

concentrate on family and recorsing living memories before they die

written records are not going anywhere and can wait
even for your children to take up the hobby as family historian

as you see this email provides an entrance to the English records

once you have located all your direct g or gg parents in 1881
the rest is routine detective work

Above all organise the family photographs
write in back in pencil date place occaision names in soft pencil
ink fades and harms

google to any page on safe storage
acid free
no light
low tempersature
no albums no plastic

use copies for display
and digitally distribute on CD

googleup to 10 words to find more info

Any help you could offer to locate this information would be most gratefully appreciated.
as a professional it would be very expensive
involving travel and hotel and other expenses
with fees and no guarantee of results
I would normally ask a $500 advance


I advise you do take your time and do it yourself

alos easier to get to and from

Domenikos Theotokopoulos (1541 - 1614), better known as El Greco (the Greek), was one of the most original painters of his time. His unique visionary style, characterised by elongated forms and bright colours, combines aspects of Byzantine and Western art. Startlingly modern in appearance, his work inspired twentieth-century painters including Cézanne, Picasso and Jackson Pollock.

Census Tools Electronic Spreadsheets

After years of frustration over disorganized census records on paper, I decided to create a simple and easy to use electronic spreadsheet to record, archive, permanently organize and preserve my hard earned data. No more lost paper! No more digging through files to find the record I need!


I now have 35 spreadsheets available covering the U.S., Canada, England, Ireland and Scotland! Among my U.S. collection are spreadsheets for all federal records as well as the states of Iowa, Kansas, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York and Wisconsin.

The U.S. Federal Census spreadsheet has separate pages for each census year from 1790-1930, including the 1880-1920 Soundex. Each page is formatted to faithfully match the actual census for each year. It's a great way to finally organize your census records of an entire family for up to 140 years!

Google Search: Re: Download kirkebøger

neat little hack by Jakob Hofmann who wrote:-


Jeg har leget lidt her i aften - jeg har lavet et lille simpelt program, der
kan hjælpe med at downloade alle sider i en kirkebog fra Håber du kan bruge det...

Du kan finde programmet på (fylder ca. 242K)

Du skal gøre følgende (det er endnu lidt sårbart så følg instruktionerne
lidt nøje):

1) Find den aktuelle kirkebog/folketælling du ønsker downloaded - dvs. du
skal finde et sogn og derefter vælge en bog, så du får mulighed for at
downloade siderne (f.eks. 1 af 240). Her på denne side skal du vælge at få
vist kildekoden (Internet Explorer: højre-klikke og vælge "Vis kilde").

2) Du skal kopiere hele kildekoden ind i HTML-source feltet

3) Du må og skal herefter åbne en af siderne og få den vist (tryk på Hent

4) Så skal du indtaste navnet på stien i "URL-adresse" feltet - dette er
f.eks. "
Bruger du f.eks.
det gratis plug-in AlternaTIFF kan du vælge menu-knappen og punktet "Copy
image location". I feltet URL-adresse kan du så vælge at højre-klikke og
sætte ind.

5) Du skal vælge hvor du vil have filerne gemt - husk at afslutte med "\" -
altså f.eks. "C:\kirkebøger\".

6) Nu trykker du på knappen "Hent.." og læner dig tilbage et stykke tid mens
den arbejder...

7) Hvis du vil downloade flere bøger skal du gentage ovenstående punkter. Du
kan altid trykke "Annullér" for at stoppe, men husk så at sidste TIF-fil
ikke vil være fuldstændig...

8) Når alle sider er downloaded, kan du f.eks. åbne Internet Explorer og
vælge "Fil", "Åbn" for at se siderne. Held og lykke..

Det med småt: Jeg fratager mig ethvert ansvar for hvordan du bruger dette
program. Selvom dette kan give umiddelbart mere pres på f.eks.'s server, så mener jeg at presset vil være betydeligt
mindre over sigt. Flere gange kigger jeg på samme side og det tager lang tid
at gøre "online" - mens jeg her anden gang ikke vil lægge pres på deres
server... - så skulle der helst ikke være nogen, der bliver sure... :-)

Mvh Jakob

Norwegian Naming Convention: "You should realize, therefore, that a surname in addition to the Christian name and the patronymic is not always the same as a modern family name. Family names in Norway are, in fact, a product of only the last few generations, except among the traditional upper classes (the clergy, military, civil servants, and the wealthy bourgeoisie). In Norway, the use of fixed family names was not made compulsory by law until 1925.

Speaking of names, your search might benefit from a unique Norwegian custom. In Norway, especially in the rural districts, there have long been very strict rules about naming descendants. Some of these rules persist even today. It was customary, for example, for the eldest son to be named after his paternal grandfather and the second son after his maternal grandfather. In a similar fashion, the eldest and second daughters were named after the respective grandmothers.

After the grandparents' names had been used, the great-grandparents' names were the next to be given, although without strict rules as to the order. Special circumstances might interfere with these rules. For example, the name of a deceased spouse was to be used first; and the name of the father or mother was given if the child was baptized after a parent's death.

According to a Norwegian proverb: "The name and the farm must go together." This meant that a child who was intended to be the owner of the farm upon reaching maturity should be given the name of a previous owner, whether a relative or not

Those Norwegian names, a little history and tips for online researchers

most scholarly

" will start this section with a little background history. The "first name" was from ancient times and up till about 100 years ago the name of the person. You did not have a surname in the way we have nowadays. The old vikings believed that the child would achieve qualities and protection from what they were named after, like animals and weapons. The old norse names originally consisted of two components, a prefix and a suffix. "

[Research Guidance: Denmark - Research Outline] Research Guidance Version Of Data : 6/8/2001: "In Denmark, a person did not become a citizen by virtue of birth. Citizenship was a valuable privilege that included:-

Rights to engage in business in a city.
Protections under the law.
Permission to reside in a city without being expelled.

Citizenship was extended by individual cities to some of their inhabitants, primarily those who wanted to engage in business, and did not pertain to the country as a whole.

Those who received the rights to citizenship were recorded in citizenship books
