- Dear Jennifer, Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner but I would go to a
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, family history library and ask
them to find for you the church records that are available from their
library for the Village called Winslade, in Hampshire, BD&M preferably and
when the film comes, read it and find all your family members on it and go
from there. The service is free except for a small fee for the film. They
provide film readers, a comfortable place to work in and lots of other
facilities besides being friendly. If you could have told me where you are
in Oz I could point you in the right direction. Most big towns in Oz have a
good quality Family History Centre if there is a church of ours there. You
won't be pressed to join the church or have missionaries knocking on your
doors as we are not allowed to proselyte among non members. It is the best
genealogical source in the world with several million rolls of filmed
records from all over the world, but particulary English records. Most
parish, census, court and probate records are all on film and all different
religous records too. I am a church member and the director of a FHC at
Tamworth, NSW and have helped many non members. Please free to contact me if
you need help. Remember, a faint heart never won the fair lady.Best wishes
Thanks for responding to my plea for help. My nearest FHC is in Canberra
some 2 hours drive and with 4 littlies at foot it does not happen very
often. I have heaps of copies from the Winslade registers, which is where I
found all the births of the children, but it is the father that eludes to me
!! I just need one tiny little clue to get me off and running again. But
you are probably right, I need to go back and have another look and see if I
have missed anything ....... I am becoming desperate <G> !!!
Tamworth, place of my birth and that of my four children !!
A lovely spot......... my mum is at Manilla. My descendants will have fun
in years to come, trying to work out why all of my children were born there
when I never actually lived there - when the last one was born we were
living in Eden !!
Again many thanks .... and will attempt to organise the kiddies ( when
school returns) and venture to Canberra for the day ........... it is like
organizing to take the whole family on holidays <vbg>
