"Gave up their names in marriage"

I'm just wondering if anyone knows exactly what this phrase signifies. According to the SP index of the OPR my forebears were "married" on 6 August 1806 in both Canongate and Garvald. I had always assumed the duplicate entries meant it was actually banns being proclaimed in both parishes. However a ...

Re: Prisioner of war ?

Hi I just looked at the main British Army WW1 records 1914-1920. There were about 20 pages for my grandfather which ranged from his enlistment papers through medical records, conduct, discharge, medals awarded and included references to his date of capture, last place interned and date and place of ...

Re: Prisioner of war ?

Hi I found my grandfather's entire WW1 army records on Ancestry, but the collection is not complete because more than half were destroyed during WW2. My grandfather was a POW and the records contain information about that, eg which camp he was in and when he was released. He was a corporal. I use An...

Re: Strange (and worrying) popup

Hi I use Firefox so I haven't, but my other half has because he uses IE. It's OK and part of Microsoft's settlement with the EU competition people.

Re: Geograph.org.uk new favorite

We live in an old farmhouse and occasionally get people coming up whose family lived here, one even gave us some old photos showing a horse poking its head out of what is now my kitchen! So we put it on Geograph in case anyone who can't get here is interested.

Re: Conundrum

I'm wondering too if this was a block booking for all the family members who had never been christened. IGI has Pancho's mother as "Eziah", and also have an Elizabeth Ann Purnell christened on 10 September 1878 at the same place with parents William and Eziah Purnell. Elizabeth appears to be 10 in 1...

Re: Wow! That would be a sight to see!

Just have a look at the guy in the top left hand picture. The mind boggles, and possibly a few other things as well.

Re: Gorton, Manchester; street & church query

Hi Lesley First, I'm pretty sure McCormack St doesn't exist any more. So if I understand your query corectly you want to know in which parish in Gorton it was? By Googling McCormack and Gorton I found this entry on Rootschat "In 1890 he re-married: Marriage 24th November 1890 All Saints Gorton Also ...

Re: newby needing help finding Henry Smart

Hi Ursulah Do you know when Henry married, which might give us a clue as to when he left Scotland? It's only a gut feeling but I'm fancying Henry Birrell Smart born 1862 in Glasgow, son of Charles Smart and Mary Birrell, mostly because of his father's name being Charles, which you said was the name ...
