Flanagan help again please

Hi Everybody, I'm probably like everyone else on TS - turning to genealogy even more to keep me going throughout the lockdown. Stay safe everybody. I'm trying to find the children of Thomas and Bridget Flanagan (my great grandparents) in the 1891 census. Thomas and Bridget (Devine) are on the 1891 c...

Re: John Reynolds Perkins 2.1.1919 - 3.6.2010

Hi Alan, Thank you so much for taking the time to look at this. He has one surviving niece who is now aged 91. I will ensure her family get the information so that she has an idea what happened to our Uncle John. Now that I have the name of the son I will continue to research this. Sincere thanks Ian

This is Ailsa's husband Ian [John} using her account. I am trying to trace any family of my Uncle John Reynolds Perkins who died in NOWRA NSW Australia on 3rd June 2010 aged 91. I have only just discovered his whereabouts. This because he was given away shortly after his birth (2.1.1919), and I assu...

Re: Midwife in Belfast

Hi Arlene,
This is very good news indeed. I will PM you in the next few days as I have my grandchildren staying at the moment and it would be impossible to concentrate! They are 8 and 6. Look forward to sharing information.

Hello Ailsa,

No luck at all with this. I guess there wasn’t enough money around for most people to pay for such things.

All the best,
Alan

Re: Midwife in Belfast

Hi Alan, Thanks very much for finding the article for me - it helps a lot. It must have been frowned upon to have medical students present at births but as someone commented they may have saved lives by being there. I am very surprised that she was a midwife as early as the late 1860s.I have printed...

She was born in Perth and after her husband James McFarlane died in 1856 when they had moved to Glasgow leaving her with 5 kids, she met John Stokes who according to t...
