Yes, Brdford is in Manchester.
It is at the Manchester end of Ashton New Road (roughly) and has been pretty
much totally redeveloped over the last few years.
Not a great deal of housing there these days.

Thank you to all the people that gave me such good advice on the causes of
death of my poor ancestors. I think I have written to thank every one
personally but just in case I have missed someone Thank You once again.
If anyone is looking through the census films for Manchester (excluding 1881)
I would be very much obliged if you make a note of location of any SHARWIN
families that you may come across as the only ones in Manchester & Salford
seem to belong to me.
Thanks once again - you are a great bunch of people.
Joan in Essex.
I know this is the best list going and if you can help you will. Can you
please try with this one.
Maybe not quite genealogy in it strictest sense but I know somebody can aim
us in the right direction.
A friend of mine is trying to locate his mother if she is still alive. She
walked out on the family in 1951 and went off with an American or Canadian
airman named ARTHUR MARSALIS who he believes was based somewhere in Kent
here in the UK. They maybe stayed here until the late 50s before he thinks
returning to the States
Can any of you guy stateside give us some idea where to start looking.
Is Marsalis a common name in the States are there any living near you?
Any help would be appreciated
If you can help either reply to me or to
Many many thanks
My name is Gordon Hall and I am currently researching the Goodram/Goodrum
surname in the Bolton area of Lancashire, England, from 1838 to the present
I am in the process of compiling a database of events regarding the
Goodram's, and I would be very pleased to hear from anybody who has any
links or associations with the Goodram surname, or who may have come across
the surname during the course of their research. I believe the Goodram
surname to have firstly appeared in the Bolton area abt. 1838, having
firstly originated in the Thorndon & Braiseworth areas of Suffolk, Eng
The surname Goodram appears to be rare in the Bolton area, and any
formation, or references would be greatly received.
I myself have connections with the Goodram surname, my Grandmother was Ada
Goodram (1894-1990), daughter of John Goodram (1860-1917) and Ann (Hannah)

Hello everyone - I am a new member and researching the following. I hope that someone will be doing the same!!
The LDS Ancestral File are linked family trees submited by private
individuals (mostly LDS members). The submitter information (name and
address) is usually shown with the data. I don't know about in Australia,
but in the US we can order copies of the microfilms that the data came from
from the Salt Lake City Family History Library at our local LDS Family
History Center. Non-LDS patrons are welcome to use the FHC. They also have
the facilities for reading the microfilms and copying relevent pages.

If the data came from the LDS IGI, there are several ways those data get
there. One is from efforts of family researchers and another is a general
data extraction program. Neither are very reliable. You should always try
to get the original source document (microfilm), which is sometimes also
listed. The batch information is also usually a microfilm listing the
person who did the extraction. Those film numbers should have been a
highlighted hypertext link when you retreived the basic entry. Just click
on them to see if they are a church book or a patron batch record.

Just flying off at Tangents.(and Cosines, Sines etc). Has anyone any
thoughts on whether any of the existing CD`s are of any benefit for 1884/5.
If so I am interested in trying to find a James William PALMER who was born
in November 1884/5, but I don`t know where.
It could be Liverpool or Northumberland. Then again!
He wasn`t with his Mam & Dad in the 1891 Census, in Liverpool.
So any clues.
I know that he should turn up in the 1901 Census, but that`s some way off

I found these people in Ashton in Makerfield in 1871. Hope they help

Hi List. This is my first posting:
I would appreciate a lookup on the 1891 census for the family of
HENRY BARKER, Watchmaker, 93 Tulketh St. Soutport. My particular
interest is ROSE BARKER, dob, circa 1875, who married Patrick
Davey(grandfather's brother) at Saint Marie's RC Church, Southport, on
11 Jan 1912. Thank you. Owen Davey, Gagetown, New Brunswick, Canada.
Have never heard Tymparitis mentioned before, but will check if it is
current jargon. I am schooled in med terminology, which helped with my
Regarding ancestors dying so young:
Young children/babies and elderly dehydrate very rapidly with diarrhea,
fever, and vomiting. Babies "thermostats" that control bodily temps are
not "mature" enough, and thus temps rise rather high, often leading to
rapid dehydration and eventually seizures and cardiac problems/death if not
checked. Infections causing high fevers could not be stopped as there
were no antibiotics. Diseases often claimed babies/children because there
was no means of hydration, lowering temps internally, and children were
malnourished and living in unsanitary conditions.
The elderly fell victim to fevers and infectious diseases because they
might have already been plagued with cardiac, respiratory or other impairing
conditions. The elderly also dehydrate as rapidly as the young, and faced
with the same living conditions, and lack of "modern" medical attention
Hope this helps.
