    1. [QUEENS] Mitchell/Hughes families...
    2. June Young
    3. Hi, I'm new at PEI research and, unfortunately, don't know too much about either the MITCHELL or HUGHES families in PEI. I found William E. MITCHELL in the 1881 Canadian census for Charlottetown. Besides his wife, Mary, and his children, he had an older woman, Catherine HUGHES, also living with them. I 'assumed' that Catherine was his mother-in-law, which gave me a last name for his wife, Mary. I've traced my late husband's line, Peter Hamlin/Hamilton MITCHELL, down from there to Boston, but have virtually nothing as to parentage, birthplaces, or where these particular families originally came from - although, I'm again 'assuming' that it may have been Ireland as their tribal origin was Irish. If anybody is familiar with these names and can help me out with any information at all, I'd be very grateful. Thanks. June Young

    1. [QUEENS] YESTERDAYS UPDATED
    2. mike spencer
    3. Hi list, the Yesterdays site has been updated with hundreds of records containing names of persons from throughout the British Isles and who are found in official documents from Derbyshire. The records cover a large variety of types that can mostly be found in Record Offices and so give an idea of the type of lives and red tape our ancestors lived with. The records include Law and Order covering all types of crimes, some pretty grim, others referring to non attendance at Church or for being of the Catholic faith. School admissions has hundreds of pupils appearing in Derbyshire schools but who moved there because the father most likely moved to find work in the area. Many of these pupils also emigrated to all parts of the world as the admissions show. Settlement Examinations are like a persons CV up to the date of Examination to find which parish he or she actually belonged to. They make interesting reading. Plus many more including apprenticeship, Bastardy, Wills and Workhouse records. mike -- http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~spire/Yesterday/index.htm

    2. mike spencer
    3. Hi list, for those with English ancestry Yesterdays site, link below, has been updated with additional records as found in Derbyshire,England.. A few new sections added with the names of persons who although at the time of their respective recording in whatever document they appeared in were in Derbyshire, it is apparent that they either came from outside the County or moved elsewhere from the County to and from other parts of Britain. Board of Guardians lists those persons who fell on hard and difficult times and were subject to the Board who decided what relief could be given ,if any, or who decided who must come "to the Workhouse". Law and Order again has the names of people from other areas of Britain but who appear in Derbyshire. The cases listed also show the nastier side of life. Schools, based on admission registers, these show the names of pupils and if any previous school was attended. Many of these schools were not in Derbyshire. Plus points is that these lists generally give DOB of the pupils plus the names of those who emigrated, some of which came to Canada. mike -- http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~spire/Yesterday/index.htm

    1. [QUEENS] Christmas queries.
    2. Murray Pletsch
    3. Dear Folks: 1. It will become a Christmas tradition on the lists I administer, to allow subscribers to send a query on the ancestor or family they are researching. Some may call this practice a Roll Call. I call it "looking for information on our ancestors"....!!! * We subscribed to the list to hopefully find ANY reference to the family we are researching. Therefore it is logical that we post the known information on our ancestor and make a query to the list members on the information being looked for, to further our database along. * 2. Some of these mailing lists have been in operation for almost 10 years and recently they have died off for whatever reasons. Hopefully this Christmas tradition will help you break down your brick walls; thereby taking advantage of this excellent free research vehicle. * 3. I only ask that folks post comprehensive queries. Place the surname of your ancestor in the subject line and provide as much information as you can in your message. If you get a response please take any further exclusive discussions offlist. * Merry Christmas to everyone and all the best in 2009. Bye for now.......Murray Pletsch List Administator

    1. [QUEENS] McKinnon
    2. Elaine Robinson
    3. Good morning I am trying to find information on the family of Hugh McKinnon (1792 Mull) and Catherine McKinnon (ca 1806 Mull) who settled on what I believe is Lot 23 PEI. The address given for them in 1880 was Greenvale, Prince Town Rd, Hunter River P.O. Queens Co. I am not descended from this line, but rather have a number of connections to the family of Janet McKinnon, Catherine's aunt who married Angus McKinnon. Most of Angus and Janet's family settled in Erin Twp in Ontario, although Angus and Janet went to Colonsay. The 1880 information on Hugh and Catherine also said that there was a family of 7 sons and 3 daughters. From census information (if I have the right family) some of the children are Donald 1831, Janet 1835 ,Neil 1839 and Angus 1841. I would like to find out more about even the first generation of this family. Thank you. Elaine Robinson Georgetown Ontario Collecting McKinnons in Ontario and Mull

    1. [QUEENS] Marriage cert. 1906/7 Rose Valley
    2. Brian
    3. I am searching for the marriage cert. of Lavina Ann McKenzie and Charles F. Bentley; a marriage which probably would have taken place at the Breadalbane United Church near Rose Valley (Lot 67) either in 1906 or 1907. Lavina was born in Rose Valley in 1882, daughter of John and Ellen (Moffitt) MacKenzie. With her father¹s sudden death in Colorado in 1898, Lavina and her siblings at various time between 1898 and 1906 removed to Boston in order to find work. It appears that mother Ellen (or Ellenor) maintained the farm in Rose Valley. In fact, I have found mother and son Andrew operating the farm there on the 1911 census. Fred Bentley was ³of² Wolfville, Nova Scotia and had gone to Alberta to homestead about 1905 or early 1906 (he appears on the Alberta 1906 census. However, we do know that by 1907 Lavina and her husband had left for Lavoy, Alberta. A son, my wife¹s uncle, was born there in August 1908. Can someone please advise me as to who to contact (government Vital Stats. or private) in PEI to search for this marriage cert. Thank you. Brian Edmonton, Alberta

    3. Hi list, for those with British ancestry the Yesterdays site (link below) contains thousands of names of person from all over the British Isles who for whatever reason found themselves in Derbyshire. Some came looking for work, others were removed by means of Removal Orders to places throughout the realm. Errant fathers of illegitimate children were tracked down while Settlement Examinations can give a good amount of detail about a persons life up to that point of examining. Many more references on site. mike -- http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~spire/Yesterday/index.htm
