  • 1885-1895 addresses in England?

    For a biography, I'm looking at a May 23 1885 birth record from King's Lynn, Norfolk. The chilld's name is Ethel and the mother's name is Anne Newton.

    There are two addresses shown: 118 London Rd. W.S.D. (mother), and 2 Providence Street (Mary Wilson, "in charge of the child").

    I looked through every page of the 1891 census for King's Lynn and could not find either address (this census did list house and street numbers).

    I'm wondering if anyone knows how I can find out who occupied these two properties, anytime from 1885-1895. I don't have any access to land records or Norfolk directories.

  • Late 1870's ships passenger lists question?

    For a biographical project, I'm wondering if anyone might have access to some kind of searchable database that would capture ships passengers in the years 1875 or so to 1881, specifically, ships from England (probably Liverpool) bound for Shanghai/Hong Kong. The passenger I'm searching for is Eleanor Deane, or anyone of that last name. If a record for Eleanor is discovered, I would love to have a list of all the passengers on that ship as well. If anyone can help me, I'd be very appreciative! Thank you

  • 1891 England census question?

    I'm looking for some specific information for a biography and hope someone might be able to help in reference to The 1891 census for Civil parish: Croydon, Ecclesiastical parish: St Peter, County/Island: Surrey Street Address: 20 St. Peter's Road; Head of household: Clara Prince.

    The entry reflects that of a small boys school with seven "scholars" What I need to find out is what the entries for the scholars indicate were those seven boys birthplaces, I think usually shown on census forms over to the right of the names. The boys are Alexander Atkinson 14,Hugh Atkinson 9

    Charles Bailey 10 Henry Cullimore 12 Fletcher Cruickshank 8 Arthur Cruickshank 7 George Harrison 11 . Do the census entries give these boys places of birth, and if so what were they?

    Thanks for helping, so much appreciated.

  • Facebook question re: comments on posts?

    All of a sudden my comments on a public Facebook page aren't taking. Have had no problem all day, but now when I comment on a post, I ENTER and my comment appears as it normally would - but when I refresh and go back, my comment isn't there. Normally when I'm commenting, there is an X to the right that allows me to delete my comment, but now the X isn't there. Does this mean FB is lagging in posting comments or is there something else wrong? Thanks
