I live in California, where I spent my adult career in education, primarily high school. c. I am interested in this list because one of my ancestors married a man with this surname in the east central Indiana region between the 1860 and 1870 censuses, and we have almost no information on who he was (including his first name), because he was deceased by the 1870 census. 2. We are told that Ancestry plans to restore all the Archives eventually, but they are working on the “more active” lists first. For this list, I haven’t found any archives yet.

For those of you who remember the lists from a few years ago, your ability to post and receive messages will function nearly the same, although there are some changes, mostly behind the scenes. That is because Ancestry has invested several months of effort into transferring everything over to a new version of the Mailman program. 4. That’s why I’m here: to help when things misbehave and you can’t get things to do what you want or need. Just send a request my way. Please feel free to help get this list back in functioning order.

I was just looking through a collection of Bermuda Church Records and specifically noticed Banister Durrant, Thomas' son, because it was such an unusual name. He was not born in Canada, but in Bermuda 11 December 1905 and Christened January 28, 1906 in Sandys, Bermuda. Nine other children are also listed. If you know anything about Thomas Henry Durrant's Cup Match career please let me know. Apparently two of his sons also played cricket and he was the Captain of the Somerset Cricket Team in 1902.

If you check out the military side of ancestry website you can find his service record. From there you will have perhaps his parents names or his then address. From the address you would be able to check out census records and go backwards that way. You may, by now, have already done this but if not good luck. Be aware, Norfolk is full with Durrant(s). Mine go back to Oxborough in Norfolk in 1792. They were Catholic and therefore.....had lots of children - seems to go hand in hand at this time. Check out our tree with the author Victoria Burbridge. If I can help any further please let me know. I am in London. Regards Malcold Durrant Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.
