    1. [ENG-ROOTS] The end is nigh
    2. Lynne
    3. Hello out there! The end of RootsWeb lists is just around the corner. If you want to make sure anyone reading the archives in future can find you, be sure to post your interests (surnames in all caps; first names, dates, and locations if you chose) and your munged email address to the RootsWeb lists to which you subscribe before 29 February. There are now hundreds of lists/groups on Groups.io that have moved from RootsWeb. You can search for a group at https://groups.io/ and then click on "Find or Create a Group." Many RootsWeb admins have added the word "RootsWeb" to the descriptions of their new groups, so if your first attempt doesn't find the right group, trying adding the keyword RootsWeb to your search. There's also a group just to announce new family research lists, RootsWeb Announce. Search the messages there to find a group. It's been a pleasure administering this list. I hope to see many of you on Groups.io or on the Ancestry/RootsWeb message boards. Take care and best of luck with your research.

    3. Hi Elizabeth At that time did Australia have a scheme to pay new emigrants? Were your ancestors involved in making fabric? In the late mid-1800's the American Civil War disrupted the cotton industry in England, precipitating emigration. Depending upon where in England your ancestors lived, I would suggest posting your question to the relevant county mailing list where those with local knowledge might be able to provide you with answer.

    1. [ENG-ROOTS] Probate Registry reduces prices
    2. Lynne
    3. The cost of obtaining a will from the Probate Registry has been reduced to £1.50 for downloaded copies. From <https://www.gov.uk/search-will-probate>: "Find a probate record, also known as a ‘grant of representation’, for someone who died after 1857. "Probate gives someone the legal right to deal with a deceased person’s property, money and possessions (their ‘estate’). "A new probate record will be online approximately 14 days after probate has been issued. "There’s a different process in Scotland and Northern Ireland. "You can use this service to: - search for a probate record in England and Wales - check if probate has been issued - check the type of probate issued - order a copy of a probate record (including a will, if there is one) "Each copy of a probate record ordered online costs £1.50. "It can take up to 10 working days for you to receive your documents. "Before you start "Wills and probate records from 1858 to 1996 "If you cannot find the record you’re looking for, check the years after the person died. These records are stored under the year the grant was issued, rather than the year of death. "To find the will of someone who died in the early 1990s, you may need to check the records that cover 1996 onwards. "Not all probate records contain a will. Check the type of grant of representation when you search. "The grant types that contain a will include: - ‘Probate’ or ‘Grant and Will’ - ‘Admon with Will’ or ‘Grant and Will’ "‘Administration (Admon) or Grant’ does not contain a will. "Search for a probate record by post Download and fill in form PA1S to search for a probate record by post. Send it to the address on" the form. "It costs £1.50 for a search by post. This includes a copy of the probate record and will (if there is one). "You should get a response within 4 weeks. "If the person died in the last 6 months "Probate may not have been granted yet. You can use form PA1S to ask to be sent a copy of a probate if it’s granted in the next 6 months. This is called a ‘standing search’. It costs £10. "You can extend the standing search after 6 months." Happy searching! Lynne

    1. [ENG-ROOTS] Re: Gibbs and Mixter
    2. Lynne
    3. Hi Keith Your best bet would be to post details of the families on the Dorset and Somerset mailing lists (See <https://mailinglists.rootsweb.com/listindexes/details?list_name=dorset> and <https://mailinglists.rootsweb.com/listindexes/details?list_name=eng-somerset> for subscription information.) Posting on the equivalent message boards is also a good idea. (See <https://www.ancestry.com/boards/localities.britisles.england.dor.general/mb.ashx> and <https://www.ancestry.com/boards/localities.britisles.england.som.general/mb.ashx>. The GIBBS mailing list is inactive, but you can still check the archives. There's a link at <https://mailinglists.rootsweb.com/listindexes/details?list_name=gibbs>. If you post some details about the two families -- dates, first names, etc. -- maybe someone on this list or someone who read the list's archives will be able to assist.

    1. [ENG-ROOTS] Researching Methodist ancestors?
    2. Lynne
    3. If you're researching Methodist ancestors, The Methodist Heritage site might be helpful. Discussed on the site are where to find local church and circuit records, locations of Methodist church archives, and certificates of baptism, as well as where to find information about officers and ministers of the church and other information. See <http://www.methodistheritage.org.uk/research-family.htm> Happy searching! Lynne

    3. Free until May 6 (sorry for the short notice, but I just discovered this), "English Parish Records: More than Hatch, Match and Dispatch" at <https://familytreewebinars.com/download.php?webinar_id=878> "Most people are familiar with the baptism, marriage and burial records found in parish records but there are many other wonderful parish records that can help in genealogical research. These include Vestry minutes, Churchwarden Accounts, settlement certificates, examinations and removal orders, Parish poor rates and relief distribution, Parish apprenticeships, parish payments for work done within the parish, parish assisted emigration and more." Hope this is useful. Lynne

    2. Lynne
    3. From <https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/default.asp>: "GRO has been piloting a service providing PDF copies of historical birth and death records. From the 16th February 2019 PDF’s have become a permanent service. "Applications for PDF’s cost £7, must be made online and include a GRO index reference. England and Wales records which are available to order in PDF format include: "Births: 1837–1918 "Deaths: 1837–1957 "Note: A PDF is not a certificate and has no “evidential” value, therefore a paper certified copy [certificate] is required for official purposes, e.g. applying for a passport, driving licence or where required to give notice of marriage. "Change in Fees "From 16th February 2019 GRO have increased the price of certificates and made changes to delivery options. Extra charges will apply if you do not order certificates online or include a GRO index reference (where available). "Multilingual Standard Forms: These are now available with applications for certificates (or separately with a certificate of no impediment) if needed for use in EU countries. Please see our ’Most customers want to know’ section for more information."
