    1. [G] Ampthill Marriage Challenge
    2. Rose Norton
    3. Hello all Just a quick reminder that the deadline for requests for Ampthill MC part 2 is 30 January. I noticed that there are several Appleby, Bandy, Blake and Brightman from part 1. I will also take requests from the Woburn and Leighton buzzard marriage challenges I have done in the past for those who didn't send in requests at the time. I am still trying to get hold of nonconformist marriages but they are proving to be elusive. Regards Rose Norton

    3. John, Thanks for this. My dad's second cousin teaches ethics at Samford University and is one of my family genealogy "go to" guys -- I will have to forward the link to him. I can't speak for this particular course, but The Great Courses material is typically first rate stuff. -Mark Bunch #6223

    3. I have not seen this mentioned in the UK but anyone intending to visit the US may find it useful. https://www.thegreatcourses.co.uk/courses/discovering-your-roots-an-introduction-to-genealogy.html Before anyone suggests that the Guild buy this and hire it out I would caution that these courses are for private viewing only and it would be as well to explain what you intend to do with it and get permission before purchasing.

    3. Hi Julie Could it be an anonymous sympathetic "mole" inside the GRO itself? If so, I want some too! They must have cost in the region of £3000 to obtain (or £2500 on the recent PDFS), surely? Quite a windfall! I'm jealous!

    2. Doug Burgum
    3. I know I will not be the first but, as a seasoned one-namer, I would like to congratulate you and any that assisted you, on producing such a professional presentation. I understand it is not, perhaps, directed at us but, nevertheless, I found it interesting. I have had 35+ years at this and I think all would accept we are all still learning. However this sort of presentation will allow newcomers to understand "stuff" that took us years to realise. I know there are sages among us who got some stuff straight away, but I have to say short-cuts to my learning curve would have been most welcome. I thing this is good for all of us, but shows newcomers in particular what sort of wonders they can expect in their personal exploration. Excellent job! Can't wait to see more.

    3. Thank you very much Polly and Graeme. I had found George Hulbert Hope in the 1841 census living in St Albans without relations and of independent means, and also a Henry Payne Hope a clerk of the right age living near Axbridge in Somerset, but also born in Somerset. The bankruptcy report showing them in business in Wells in 1831 with Daniel Payne (Mary Hope's brother or father?) suggests that the birth in Somerset was a mistake and that I had found the correct Henry. And the marriage in Bristol is a great find - I wish that there were more Bristol records online.

    1. [G] FIBIS 20th Anniversary Conference
    2. Wendy Archer
    3. Sent by : Valmay Young <[email protected]> Website and Social Media Manager Families in British India Society ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The next FIBIS residential conference celebrates the society’s 20th birthday and will run from Friday 28th to Sunday 30th September at the Hawkwell House Hotel in Iffley, Oxford. We have lined up speakers on a range of topics which we hope will fill in some gaps and encourage delegates to pursue their own investigations. There will be opportunities over the weekend to consult FIBIS and other experts on individual research problems, and also to view examples of past FIBIS transcriptions and research results and to browse a gallery of photographs. There will be some tutorials; such as research or practical advice on the use of the FIBIS and other websites, and in contributing to FIBIS database, Wiki and Gallery We will also have space for discussion groups on specific topics of common interest suggested by delegates and run by themselves. And of course there will be time to network with fellow delegates. TIMINGS The event will start at 13.00 on Friday with an open forum session and other tutorial or discussion opportunities. Formal lectures will begin at 14.30. We will have afternoon lectures and one shorter after-dinner lecture. There will be a full day of talks on Saturday, including an after-dinner speaker, and two further talks plus a plenary session on Sunday morning. The conference will close at 13.00 on Sunday. CONFERENCE SPEAKERS: Richard Morgan will host the open forum session, dealing with questions from delegates. He has long been fascinated by British India and has edited The Diary of an Indian Cavalry Officer (Pagoda Tree Press 2003) and written FIBIS publications Fact Files No 3 Indian Directories, No 5 Graves in India and Research Guide No 3 British Ships in Indian Waters 2nd edn 2017, as well as articles on British India for the FIBIS Journal, Chowkidarand Family Tree. FIBIS President Peter Bailey will deliver the introductory lecture of the conference. Trustee since 1999, Chairman for many years and always enthusiastic promoter of FIBIS, Peter has helped to build FIBIS into the successful family history society that it is today, having worked in every role except treasurer! He has delivered many lectures over the years and produced two of the four FIBIS research guides. He began his own research journey by investigating the activities of eight direct ancestors who lived and served in the military in India and will share some of the excitement of discovery. Geraldine Charles, FIBIS founder trustee, experienced researcher and speaker at family history events: To mark 100 years since the end of WWI, Geraldine will report on her most recent project to identify Anglo-Indian and European soldiers recruited in India to fight in WWI. Like her earlier work locating the descendants of medal recipients, it honours the contribution of Indians, Anglo-Indians and Europeans based in India at that time. Major General (Retired) J C Lawrence CBE, military historian, author and lecturer on strategy at the Royal College of Defence Studies, will speak about Britain’s Gurkhas, from their initial recruitment in 1815 through to their service in today’s armed forces. He published The Gurkhas: 200 years of service to the Crown in 2015 and is currently working on a commemorative history of The Royal Gurkha Rifles (RGR) for publication in 2019. The locations of his military career provide a colourful backdrop for his works of adventure fiction which, perhaps not surprisingly, also include Gurkhas! You can find out more at: www.craiglawrencebooks.co.uk. Debbie Kennett is an Honorary Research Associate at University College London. She is a regular speaker on DNA and surnames at both national and international events. She is the author of two books, DNA and Social Networking and The Surnames Handbook, and has written many articles about DNA for family history magazines. She will talk about finding family with DNA and using DNA as a tool in family history research. Gill Blanchard, member of AGRA, is an historian and full-time researcher, tutor, lecturer and author. She is an expert on family, house and local history, and has been a professional family history researcher since 1992. She derives great enjoyment from passing on her knowledge to other people and does so in an accessible way. Her talk will give us a glimpse of the work that goes on behind the scenes at ‘Who do you think you are?’ Subject to demand, she may also deliver a writing tutorial. Jenny Mallin will talk about the story behind her prize-winning cookery book ‘Grandmother’s Legacy’. So much more than just a cookery book, it shares her moving experience of connecting with earlier generations of her own family by researching and recreating the meals that they enjoyed. The names, ingredients, and even the spelling will strike a chord with many of her listeners. Dr Philip Woods is a lecturer in history at the New York University in London whose specialisms include British Imperial and Colonial History. He has a particular interest in the role of war correspondents, newsreel and newspaper reports and will offer a view of Independence and Partition according to the visual record provided by British newsreels and international photographers. Jean Ellis’s family, like so many others, left their lives and homes in Burma when the Japanese invaded during WW2. In her book ‘Goodbye Burma’ she uses family documents, personal anecdote and detailed research to reimagine the experience of leaving at this chaotic and dramatic moment in history, the approaching end of empire. She follows individual family members as they ultimately risk a long and arduous journey to reach the safety of India. Saturday’s after-dinner speaker will be announced at a later date. PRIZE DRAW: Upgrade to superior room: The hotel has some superior rooms and FIBIS are offering a free upgrade as a prize to 5 delegates. Names will be drawn from bookings made during the early bird period, up to 31st March 2018.
