Many apologies for doing a "block" thank you but I received so many replies that this was the only way I could cope (what with a teething baby and all.....)
The general consensus of opinion seems to be that it is a hoax/scam (they want an £85 fee for the privilege.....!) and that I should ignore it. It has been duly double deleted and that, hopefully, will be an end to it!
I have to say that I am rather relieved as I didn't believe that I was doing anything wrong, but after three messages you do begin to wonder, ever so slightly.
So thank you one and all (and if I have missed anyone out, many apologies but I shall send this to the List as well, just in case).

I've got a John MILLER who left this earth in 1889. According to the family
he lived in Stockton Heath. I looked at the wonderful CheshireBMD site and
found 2 John Millers for that year -- one in Warrington and the other in
Latchford. Is Stockton Heath close to either of these?
Perhaps I didn't make my point clear. My grandfather was given his mother's family name for his surname (HUNT) and his "stepfather"'s surname was WRIGHT. Both these names are stated on the the marriage certificate. It was one of the first things I noticed when I saw the certificate.
Does anyone else think this is odd? Grooms surname - HUNT Groom's fathers name WRIGHT.
Can anyone tell me when the first burials took place in Middlewich Cemetery (approx.) Quite a lot of my ancestors came from the Middlewich area, and as we will be going over to England in a few week's time I would like to see if I can find the burial places of at least some of them. Any information gratefully received.

My Grandfather, on his birth certificate, was born illigitimately. His mother married 2 years later. On his marriage certificate it names his "stepfather" as his father.
Has anyone else come across this situation. Would one presume that the "stepfather" is his natural father? I know we shouldn't presume. Any thoughts on this matter would be appreciated.
My mother was illegitimate also, as was I She had her mothers name Walker,
but when my grandmother married her legitimate father 3 years later she
became known as Prince, Yet when I was born she reverted back to Walker maybe
to spare her father the embarrassment who knows,
Best wishes jean
Does anyone have any experience or knowledge of an index of the 1851 census
issued on CD-ROM by a company called Global Genealogy.
I came across their website - Globalgenealogy.com - which gave details of
the CD which costs $64.99 Canadian dollars. Apparently, you do need
separate software but it is available free. I think it's issued by same
people as Family Tree Maker.
>From the description it appears to have as much information as the census
It is very tempting but sounds too good to be true.

I have been in this store in Milton near my home and it is a
reputable family-run company, rapidly growing and offering an
extremely wide range of products at fair prices from what I can see,
considering that there are so few stores around with these
specialized products. The same products, however, if originating
in the UK might be less expensive in the UK since the shipping
charges would be less. No sense crossing the ocean twice.
They are hosting a genealogy fair this fall in the Farm Museum near
Campbelleville to the west. Last year's fair drew people from Canada
Bruce in Toronto and Campbelleville Ontario Canada
Notices several recent comments about Lea.
I grew up in the village of Leaside now part of Toronto Ontario
Canada, and this village was the home of (and in 1910 developed and
named after) Wm Lea (farmer ca 1840) originally from Lancashire or
Cheshire, by way of America where he found the farm land not to his
liking. We volunteers recently wrote an updated history of the
village and a family tree was included. I will post more details
when am back home and can consult the book. If of Lancashire I am
sure someone on this list can re-post there.

I too would be interested to hear more about the above CD.

Is there an index for the 1851 census, and if so does anyone have that index
available to them?
I am looking to see where there might have been a John Spellman or Spelman
at that time. I have not been able to find him in Ireland and realize I
should try looking for him in England.

I posted a multiple Baptism yesterday of three strays on the register of
Winsford St Paul's.
There was another of three children from Over. Both Baptisms were by
the same minister. No idea of the significance. Had the families newly
become Methodists ? Did Methodists re-baptise children ? Don't know
