General consensus from the reams of replies seems to be that the tree format
is fine the dicks are mere padding and basically useless.
We have tried to do an update but it says none available for the program
when you work your way through the "update" program!!
Think it will be going back to the shop
Thanks for the assist and replies
seeking VICKERS(Derby,Notts,Lincoln?),RICHARDSON, & family friend Sydney
I am seeking help to find the birth registration of John WHALLEY born
c1748. He married Mary WELLS on 21 August 1769 at St Leodegarious
church, Basford, Nottingham. I have searched many Nottingham parish
records to find the birth registration for John, but no luck yet. The
St Leodegarious microfiche is very difficult to read for the years just
before and after 1748, but I am fairly sure he's not on there. John
died at the age of 64 in 1812 in Basford.
John & Mary WHALLEY had 8 children: Sarah b1770; George b1773; Mary
b1775; Alice b1778; John b1780; Ann b1782; William b1783; Joseph b1785
(Joseph was my ggggrandfather). All the children were born in Basford,
Nottingham. I have been searching the parish registers for about four
years so any help would be greatly appreciated.
Any other information for this family would be greatly appreciated too.
There is no attachment to this.
Please accept my apologies for this virus which I may have passed on..I am now virus free and well protected. Be warned ,I believe someone called Sheelagh from Oz Passed it on .

If anyone reading this has any information on the Penney family originally
from Nottingham in the 1800s, I would appreciate hearing from you. My
grandfather was Christopher John Penney, born in 1885 in Nottingham; his
father was Joseph Thomas Penney, born in 1858, presumably in Nottingham. I
am trying to trace back further to forbears prior to Joseph Thomas Penney.
Thanks for any assistance.

I have a photo of my dad's class at Berridge Road Boys School, Nottingham, in 1924. Is there anyone else with a copy who could help me identify the people on it, as I can only recognise my dad (Leslie GRIFFITHS) and the formidable headteacher ('Daddy' BARKER)?
Is there anyone who would like a copy?
Good luck to all,

I have research interests in Screveton and Ratcliffe and wonder if there are any relevant pre 1890 published parish registers available without having to visit Nottingham Records Office.
I have a print out from the 1871 census for a known address in Sheffield which would appear to have been compiled by a hard of hearing enumerator, judging by the alterations and crossings out! Having spent many frustrating and unproductive hours on this line of research I am looking for some helpful leads!
Any help much appreciated.
Thank you for consulting with your mother about Lawrence HOLLIDAY.
I am sorry that she could not help me at this time, but there is always hope
when you read of a surname that you are researching.
If I saw a copy of the photo I probably would not see any family resemblance
(sp) since me grand parents emigrated to the USA in 1895. Do you have a
scanner and the knowlege to send a copy by e-mail? If not don't worry about
