Re: Putting our Howse in order - May 2020

A gold star is due to correspondent Tim Howes from Brisbane in Australia, who meticulously figured out the answer to our puzzle. Ada Sweet was the sister of Maria Sweet who was already in our database, having married an Alfred Argent Howes. Ada's son's father's name was stated to be Alfred Horace Ho...

Putting our Howes in order - June 2020

Hello everyone. Well that's half the year gone. With all the news we've had around the world since DEcember, it feels like twelve months have passed already! What could the next six months hold for us? I sincerely hope the lockdowns stop soon as there's been a dearth of information about people with...

Putting our Howse in order - May 2020

Hello everyone. Since last month's newsletter, I flew to England to help take care of my mother who is very poorly. Fortunately, I arrived a few days before the British government imposed a mandatory 14-day quarantine restriction. Even though not subject to the regime, I've been close to nobody othe...

Putting our House in order - April 2020

Happy new month, folks. One third of the year gone already! With all this virus lockdown it feels like two-thirds, already! It turns out that the lockdown has been a huge stimulus to people re-opening their family history research. My email inbox bears eloquent testimony to that because it has explo...

Re: Putting our Howze in order - March 2020

Many thanks and congratulations to correspondent Tim Howes from Queensland who has correctly solved the first part of our puzzle, that is where Mary Tresham and John Howes were in 1901 and 1911. Mary was definitely from Rotherham. John appears to have come from Islington born between 1865 and 1869, ...

Putting our Howze in order - March 2020

Hi folks. I hope you have a happy and, most importantly, a healthy month. Here in Florida, we have faced increasing restrictions on our movements because of the spread of the virus originally from Wuhan. The restrictions are worse than those in some places and not as bad as some, I feel sure. Things...

Putting our Hows in order - February 2020

Greetings from Salt Lake City, folks. I'm in the Family History Library, mecca to family historians. I wish I could say I was recovering from four days of RootsTech, but instead I'm recovering from the flu! Warning: this year's flu shot isn't as effective a shield as part years'. I started shivering...

Putting our Howse in order - December 2019

Happy new year, everybody. As I write this it's already January in most of the world. So this is going to be a relatively short newsletter. Prizewinner We actually had lots of entries for our prize draw for the 4-day pass to RootsTech at the end of next month. As promised, a week ago my wife picked ...

Re: How to obtain a BMD certificate for England/Wales

Update news: 1 - Full certificates now cost £11 each. 2 - For births before 100 years ago, and deaths before 50 years ago, you can obtain an "uncertificate" at a much reduced cost of £7 and the really good news is that they take only 3 days to arrive in your email inbox. Uncertificates are PDF copie...
