Hi all,
I am trying to find any info onm Robert Mackintosh born c1811 in Kingston upon Hull. He married Eliza Farrow in 1832 in Hull. I have tried the IGI with no luck and was hoping someone could have a look for me next time they are at the record office.
Thanks in advance

Hi Alex,
It seems the Hull local studies dept is closed until Jan 2010 - possibly moving to a new building??
I think Hull PR will be at the Treasure House in Beverley. Perhaps you could ask for a look up there.

You can access the Hull PR at the Borthwick Institute at York, I did it last week for a friend. Certainly the records for Holy Trinity are availble from the 1600's through to approx 1870 and I did see there were other parishes, but cannot remember the names.

Thanks Janet and Champagnegal,
Unfortunately (or fortunately) I live in Australia so I am unable to pop in and have a look. What I was hoping for was that someone on the forum may be able to have a look for me next time they were in the records office. The good wife has flatly refused a trip to the UK because all I would do is spend my time going through musty old records ( I can't see the problem ;) ).
