    1. [ENG-SRY-WSFHS] Identification of military items/photos - OFHS Fair Sat 7th Oct
    2. Angie Trueman
    3. The Oxfordshire Family History fair is now only 6 weeks away and one of the services we are providing on the day includes help with interpreting old photographs and military items. Graham Bandy of Living Military History has suggested that we remind visitors to come armed with their items: Graham says: "Many people have lots of old family photographs and it is difficult to align a person with a photograph. Fashions change as do military uniforms. Uniforms change at set dates and once you know the basics you can start identifying your own. I will help you with this "dark art”. People are encouraged to bring their own ORIGINAL photos for identification and dating as they hold a mass of information to the trained eye and although I will give basics to (a very good) high resolution scan, I cannot guarantee anything from copies. Of course I am happy to look at and decypher any military items too…” A reminder too that we have our Wills expert Dave Beames who manages the transcriptions of Oxfordshire wills with us again so please do bring along any that you have. So that’s Saturday 7th October at The Marlborough School Woodstock OX20 1LP. Visit www.ofhs.org.uk/fair for details of the day, directions and stallholders. Angie Trueman OFHS Fair Organiser

    1. [ENG-SRY-WSFHS] Surrey Monumental Inscriptions Library
    2. There were 1,197 new names in the January update to the Surrey Monumental Inscriptions Library. They come from graveyards and cemeteries in Camberwell, Chelsham, Chobham, New Sheen(Fulham New Cemetery) Godalming New cemetery, Godstone, Great Bookham, Stoke New Cemetery, The Mount Guildford and Putney Old Burial Ground. Just under 300 are war graves We are still adding material to the MI Library so it is always worth emailing to see if we have a graveyard of interest to you. There are now some 95,437 names in the Index, we have added 5,529 names since 1 April 2015 Parishes & Graveyards We have added 25 parish information pages this month. As a trial we are also adding details of the records that WSFHS sells for each parish The easiest way to access is via the members area of our web site http://wsfhs.co.uk/pages/services.phpIf you access the graveyards index this way you can browse the alphabetical list of Surrey graveyards or use the search facility. Each of the columns tells you what records we have. If the record shows we have Inscriptions but they are not indexed try emailing me with you query. You can also access the parish pages directly at: http://www.surreyburials.org.uk/graveyards/ You will still need your password and user name to access the index. If you find the alphabetical list a bit daunting we are trialling an interactive map of the Ancient Parishes. Its still in its testing phase but you can access it at: http://surreygraveyards.org.uk/graveyards/index2.shtml It's not complete yet but do let us know what you think. What other groupings would be helpful to you eg Local Authority, Deanery or what? Do let us know. -- Tony Kelly Monumental Inscriptions CO-Ordinator West Surrey Family History Society +44 (0) 7 515 666 159 http://www.wsfhs.org */Finding our Roots... ...Celebrating our Heritage/*

    1. [ENG-SRY-WSFHS] Catherine LEARY convict
    2. dianna charles via
    3. Hi I hope someone maybe able to help with my research on the above who was convicted of Robbery 21/10/1839. Supposedly she was a widow with three children 2 boys one girl, she was a servant/laundress born Co. Cork born c 1808 and was transported to NSW on the “SURREY” for 10 years. I am hoping to find her trial at the Surrey QS and/or any newspaper report on her trial. Catherine married here in NSW to Daniel WALTON in 1842. Also is it possible that the children where placed in the workhouse. I’m not sure if Catherine was placed in Milbank prison or Newgate/Newbridge. Any help finding out anything on CATHERINE LEARY (Walton) very much appreciated. Kindest regards Dianna

    1. [ENG-SRY-WSFHS] Porter - Long Ditton
    2. Paul Eggleton via
    3. Christopher Eggleton married Sarah PORTER in a London clandestine marriage in 1753 - she died in Epsom in 1761. Christopher then married Mary Reynolds in Chessington in 1763 - she was widowed too - Palmer Porter was one of the witnesses. Palmer Porter was born in 1698 in Long Ditton, Father Johannes. Palmer married Sarah Parker in another clandestine marriage in 1725 - he died in Epsom 1763. My "gut" feel is that Palmer was definitely the father of Sarah and probably also the father of Mary Reynolds - she being a widow, maiden name Porter. However, I cannot find any children born to Palmer Porter or birth of Sarah Porter from 1720 to 1740 Long Ditton, Epsom areas. Does anyone have any links to this family or ideas where I could look next. There is nothing on ancestry, find my past or lds sites. Thanks Paul Eggleton
