Alison , should you obtain any information regards the travels to England of our Irish ancestors, might I suggest ? that you might share it with all the Listers.

Thanks to those people who explained Prescot / Farnworth / Preston to me - I
think I gave the impression, in a previous email, that I was confused but
I've just about got the regional geography sorted out (I'm a
Preston-dweller) but only for what I need to know about (!!).
Happy new year to all on the list. However, I have one gripe - if somebody
spends ages looking something up for you, have the decency to quickly
acknowledge what they have done for you. It may mean in the future that when
that person is able to help another person they are reluctant to do so as
they feel that their goodwill may be taken advantage of. I think all that
makes vague sense!
As my Nan says, "Manners don't cost owt" - she may be from Yorkshire but I'm
agreeing with her on that one!!

Well i seem to have spent the last few months looking in the total wrong direction.
I know alot of you have already helped me with this and i do appologise but for some reason some of my information has got deleted.
But if anyone could please help me by seeing if they have any records of the following information.
I am looking for a JAMES HUNT age about 16/17
Born APPLETON STREET WIDNES DOCK FARNWORTH PRESCOT LANS on 25th Nov 1863
His Parents were JOHN HUNT and ANN HUNT (formally HILL) but his father was already deceased in 1887 so on the 1881 census it could be that ANN was a widow or even Both (which i hope not)
Occupation of father if still alive was registered as alkaline? labourer on James Birth Cert.
The family Looks like they moved to St Helens James married there in 1887
sorry for going over old grounds but as i said it now looks like i was barking up the wrong tree and i would like to start a fresh in the year 2001.
Also i would like to take this chance to wish everyone on this list a very happy new year
all the best
Happy New Year all'
Thanks Brenda, but the date I need is 1870. There is not a LSD centre near by,
and so I will have to rely on peoples good will or the Liverpool Record Office.
Should Barbara be able to do the look up the reference I have is P020279 3016
THOMAS ARMSTRONG 6th APRIL 1870. Thanks again for everybody's help.
I hope to return the favours,
To anyone wanting to read FICHE without a viewer:
Make up a small light box with a low energy bulb and a diffused cover.
(Mine is from an outside plastic lamp)
Remove the eyepiece from an old pair of binoculars.
Make a small ring of cardboard to fit in the eye end
about 10mm deep, and glue in place.
Place the eyepiece on the fiche (Eye end down)
and read fiche through the wrong end of the eyepiece.
Some experiment may be necessary.
(Not to be recommended for long sessions)

HAPPY NEW YEAR to all Listers from PRESTON, Lancs.
I have never heard so many fireworks going off over the town and docks.
The snow has been washed away by rain and it is now a dry and very mild
evening for all the celebrations.
Good luck, health and happiness to all for 2001
