I am hoping SKS will be able to check the 1851 census and find MARGARET CATHERINE DORMER. She is my Great Grandmother. b 15/5/1840, Hull.
I think her father was John Henry Dormer, mother Helen ? She arrived in Australia 1858. I don't have anything on her in England.

The newspaper you need is the Hull Daily Mail. There shold be a copy on

Please can somebody with local knowledge please give me some advice about
how to get hold of an obituary for the Hull area?
I am trying to trace an immediate ancestor who died as recently as 1963.
It seems as though it is easier to find out about people who died in the
19th century than it is to find details of their descendants! I have a
death certificate now but would like to get hold of any obituaries in the
There does not seem to be any way of doing this online (I don't live
locally, so the internet would be my solution of choice!) but if anybody
else knows differently, I'd love to hear from you! Alternatively, is there
a newspaper which offers a service and could send me a photocopy? Which
newspapers were around in the early 1960's?
If all else fails and I have to travel to Hull for the information, where
would be the place to go to look this up? Does the library hold newspapers
or would the local records office be the best place?
Thanks in advance,

I found the book 'The East Yorkshire Village Book' at Brown's in George
Street. Hull on my last visit there a few weeks ago. They had a number of
them available then. The book is part of a series called 'The Villages of
Britain'. They have been compiled by the Federation of Women's Institutes.
I found this book very informative and not just from a Family History point
of view but also useful as a guide book, and will certainly refer to it on
my next visit to the Yorkshire Region.
I have to-day ordered a copy in the same series on Lincolnshire. I was told
that the original series is now unavailable but a new edition was issued in
September which now includes some colour photographs. I am eagerly awating
my copy and just hope that it is as comprehensive and informative as the
East Yorkshire area.
I know that a lot of Yorkshire folk are researching family in other parts of
the Country, so am listing the books available in the series. Hope this
isn't too much off subject!!!
Avon Bedfordshire Berkshire Buckinghamshire Cambridgeshire
Cheshire Cleveland Cornwall Cumbria Derbyshire Devon Dorset
Essex Gloucestershire Hampshire Herefordshire Hertfordshire Kent
Lancashire Leicester&Rutland Lincolnshire Middlesex Norfolk
Northamptionshire Nottinghamshire Oxfordshire Powys Montgomeryshire
Shropshire Somerset Staffordshire Suffolk Surrey East Sussex
Warwickshire West Midlands Wiltshire Worcestershire North Yorkshire
South & West Yorkshire.
Phew!!!!! I think I should just have said 'everwhere'.
Apoligies to all; on its own my message was misleading.
I should have included a message from another list, but it appears to have been omitted.
For anyone that doesn't know the LDS web site (www.familysearch.org) now gives free on-line access to the 1881 British Census, as well as the USA and Canadian census.
Sorry for the confusion.
I recently purchased in Hedon near Hull two memory cards;
Maria Hildyard of Louth died 21 Jun 1866 aged 64 and
Robert Turner of Caistor died 23 December 1890 aged 77.
Anyone researching these names can have them.
Many thanks to Carol, Peter, Peter, Nick, David and Sheila for their help. I now have Esther CHARD and two daughters, now to find the boys ! Two possible burial grounds were mentioned, Hull City Cemetery on Heddon Road and Western General in Springbank for Esther ( died 1916 ) and her husband William ( died 1890 ) . I am on the prowl for MI's, does anyone know if these graveyards have been 'done' ? Regards Peter in Auckland NZ.
Sorry I magnified it and it is number 38 not 37, should
have realised it went 38,36,34, etc (duh) and it is Esther now you have
mentioned her it is easy to make out.
The EYFHS are planning on doing the big cemeteries , they may be working on
them at the moment, see www.
EYFHS.org.uk they have a list of MI books.

Could SKS please have a look at the 1891 and see who was living at 14 Woodhouse Street and 27 Woodhouse Street, Driffield, Hull. Hopefully it will be my lot, the CHARD's. Also, which cemetery is the probable burial place for any one dying in Woodhouse Street, I would like to check on possible MI's for my GGparents. Cheers, Peter in Auckland NZ.
Have just discovered another name for my tree, Hannah LEVI who on the 1881 census was living at 3 Handleys Place, Sculcoates.
If this name connects, I would love to hear from you.
