    Thanks, Carolyn.
    Vera's given me lots of help to firm up my info on Mary's son John Samuel, who is definitely the ancestor of the family I'm in contact with. It's the middle bit which is missing,...

    Vera, I'm so sorry - I can't find the second John Samuel now :( I think I've looked at so many John/John S/John Samuel references that I've muddled up some of them. I apologise if this has caused...

    Thanks for #7, Vera. I had looked at this record the other day, but wasn't sure because the occupation at enlistment was given as barman, rather than miner (see 1911 census.) Barman "threw" me,...

    Can anyone help fill in census gaps (1881, 1891 & 1901) for this Mary, elusive because the surname kept morphing? I’m sorry the following is so long, but I want to give you as much background as I...

    Gosh, GL, wish my rellies came from the borders! Nothing like that available for any of the churchyards near me, although the municipal cemeteries might keep relevant records of gravestones.

    As far as I'm aware, churches don't keep records of gravestones per se. However, sometimes the stones have the name of the firm of masons on them - if you're lucky, they might still be in business...
