I'm probably going to regret this <gg>
I live very close to Stockport Library and I'm willing to do look ups for
anyone who has relatives from there.
I also live very near to an old cemetery, St Paul's Church used to be there.
If you think your relative may be there, I will check for you.
I am looking for information on BURGESS John and Margaret (Cox) who married at Church Lawton in 1799 and had the following children of whom I am aware.
John born 1805 at Newchapel Staffordshire
THOMAS 1807 at Newchapel
John 1810 at Sandbach, Cheshire
Hannah 1812 at Sandbach
William 1813 at Sandbach
Mary 1814 at Sandbach
Richard 1816 at Sandbach
William 1817 at Sandbach
James 1822 at Sandbach
Thomas married Ellen Bostock in 1837 at Barthomley and then lived in Sandbach until he left for Adelaide in 1848. He was an ironmonger in 1841 census.
I am interested to know what happened to John and Margaret BURGESS:in particular when they died and where they were buried. I haven't had much luck in my searching.
I am looking for information on BOSTOCK from Haslington/ Barthomley/ Sandbach
I wonder if there is some kind person who is able to access the 1851 census and look for BOSTOCK Thomas and Hannah (spouses) aged about 60 who most likely lived at Haslington. He was a butcher there in 1834.
I have the 1891 Census for Macclesfield East and West and for Rainow. I
will do look ups for anyone interested. I have also sent off for
Bollington which should arrive in the next four weeks.
My grandfather James Stanley HOWARD was a prisoner of war during the first world war.
He fought at Mons for the Cheshire Regiment and was caught by the enemy. He spent the rest of the war in various prisons.
Is there anyone who knows where I can find information where these men were kept and what conditions they had to endure.
I was at St Mark's in Dukinfield last weekend for my young nephew's christening. While I was there, I snapped the names of those who died in the First World War. I hope they are of use to someone.

Is anyone researching the CHORLTON family in Ashton-under-Lyne? I have come across the marriage of John CHORLTON to Eliza MOULSDALE at St Michael's and All Angels on 18 September 1837. I believe she was the sister of my wife's gg-grandfather and I would be interested to learn what became of that family.

I am the proud owner of the 1881 LDS CD full set (25 CD's) but having a few
problems, can anyone help please as I am a bit disappointed. The setup
instructions appear 'poor' (to someone like me) and can anyone give me some
advice as follows. I have used the electronic manual but it does not help. I
know from all the assistance with my requested searches before from this
forum that their must be some clever persons out there who can please give
me some advice. Thanks.
1. After installing the viewer, do I install the disk 1 (only) of all the
CD's using the 'add resourse' including the National Index (i.e) I do not
install any of the disk 2', 3 etc ?.
2. When I am searching for example by region, when I change the CD region
to another an on screen message keeps asking for the previous region CD no
matter which order I attempt to put the CD in first or change the screen
region area. If I click cancel it boots me completely out of the programme
and then on restarting it lets me have the new CD region I requested.
3. Can one search on street names. I have to find a road by putting in a
common name like Jones in a region then search through each name until I
hopefully come up with the street I want and then click neighbours to find
who was living at a particular address. Is this the only way.
4. When do I use the National Index CD's, I have not been requested to
insert one of these CD's in all my hours of searching.
5. Any other advice You can give.
Thanks for any help in anticipation.
I have just started trying to trace my grandfathers family in the UK.
Grandfather emigrated to Aus. as a child.
So far, I have only his birth details (verbal), and his fathers death
certificate to work from.
My great-grandfather was James ECCLES who married Edith BEAVER in 1893 in
Manchester. Jim was 19, making him born about 1874. They had 4 children -
Christopher (1894), Emily (1896), Edith Annie (1898), George A (1901) and
James William (1903)(my grandfather). Grandfather Jimmy said he was born in
Newtown near Manchester.
My grandfather put on his fathers death certificate that they emigrated
about 1914, (except Edith and Christopher) and that the parents were
Christopher ECCLES and Catherine ARNOLD. However, the 1881 census shows no
household with C C and J Eccles, anywhere in England at that time.
As all these records are GRO, I am planning a trip to the nearest access to
the indexes here in Aus (State Library NSW), but is any one out there
researching ECCLES families ?

I have been told that there are two separate reports in issues of 'The
Lancet' that give details of a pioneering operation that was performed on
one of my ancestors. The reports appeared in 'The Lancet' on 8 April 1911
and also on 4 January 1913. How can I obtain copies of these reports?
