Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state.
Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb
Thanks to all who helped me in June. I'll be in Chester/Neston in
mid-October and plan to visit the Cheshire Archives and Little Neston. I
can't wait! I wonder if anyone can point me in the right directions so as
to make maximum use of my time while there.
The McGowan family were likely members of St.Winefriede's RC church.
Would the archives have any of their records or would the church? I can't
imagine the church would want folks mucking about in theirs though.
I understand that the church has a graveyard of some age. Would they or
the archives have a graveyard record/census of who is buried there?
Finally the family and the Muldowney family with whom they married were in
Wales as of the *1851 *census. They are also in the *1861* and *1881* but
I *can't find* the McGowan's i*n the 1871* census, none of them. Richard
McGowan, son, ggrand immigrated in 1887/8. Any suggestions?
Thanks again for your past kindnesses.
Message from Ian Hartas, UKBMD.
Hi, the various Local BMD websites have had another update to their software. The main visible difference is that instruction number 4 on the births search page has changed on the websites that have some data with mother's maiden names. Instead of saying: Enter a surname. the new version says: Enter either a surname, a mother's maiden name or both. So, now you can search by mother's maiden name alone! You may now leave the main surname field blank and enter just the mother's maiden name.
Also, to bring a bit more consistency to the search results the column order has changed so that the mother's maiden name column is now next to the other name columns, leaving all the reference columns in a group on the right. This also affects the layout of the option to output to a file.
Many thanks to Dafydd Hayes as usual for the Welsh translations of the various updated texts.
