    3. Yes, we've moved. You'll find Reeves and Reeves-UK List have combined and have moved to https://groups.io/g/Reeves-L When you're browsing this archive at some point in the future, please remember this RootsWeb list was closed to new content on 02 March 2020. The content you're finding here may have been updated based on new research undertaken since this list closed. New DNA results in particular on the one hand help us confirm earlier work but also cause us to continually reassess what has previously been proposed. Aside from our new mailing list, there are other useful genealogy resources for the surname Reeves and its many variants ...

    1. [REEVES-UK] Reeves-UK List is Moving - Come and Join Us
    2. Martin Barker
    3. If you subscribe to other lists here at RootsWeb, you're probably already aware that Ancestry have announced that from 2 March 2020 the Mailing List functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing or accept incoming emails. The one piece of good news is that Ancestry intend to retain the mailing list archive and they will be searchable on RootsWeb. Within the Reeves community we spent a little time looking at alternate and similar platforms and we're pleased to announce we've created a new Reeves-L mailing list at Groups.io. Groups.io has some additional capabilities, (some free and some only available with a subscription) which we'll consider using later. Having consulted with Jana Black, who has managed the Reeves-UK list for many years, we've concluded that rather than let the Reeves-UK list wither away, the best course of action is to invite all members of the Reeves-UK list to join the newly created Reeves-L list at Groups.io so that we continue to collaborate on our research into all variants of the Reeves surname. You'll shortly receive an invitation from Groups.io to join the new Reeves-L list. If you don't want to wait for that message (or suspect your spam filter has shredded that message for you) you can visit <https://groups.io/g/Reeves-L> https://groups.io/g/Reeves-L and click on the big blue "+ Join This Group" button. There is already a roll call underway on the new list. I'd suggest you hang fire for a week or two to give your fellow researchers whose primary focus is here in Great Britain a chance to get signed up. Groups.io has a hashtag feature and will filter tagged messages into a separate view of the new list's archives. So we'll strongly suggest that any message primarily about research here in Great Britain includes the hashtag #GB in the subject line of the message. See https://groups.io/g/Reeves-L/hashtags I'm sure you will all join with me in thanking Jana for her efforts is keeping the Reeves-UK list running for many years and for prodding us into action occasionally.

    1. [REEVES-UK] Reeves DNA Project - 15th Anniversary
    2. Martin Barker
    3. On 21st April the Reeves DNA Project (https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/reeves/about) celebrated its fifteenth anniversary. Barry Reeves, who has been involved with the Reeves DNA Project since the start, shares some thoughts at <https://thereevesproject.org/data/tiki-index.php?page=DNA_Project_News_2019 _04_21> https://thereevesproject.org/data/tiki-index.php?page=DNA_Project_News_2019_ 04_21 If you've been thinking about taking a Y-DNA test but not got round to ordering one yet, now might be the right time. FamilyTreeDNA currently have a sale (ends 25 April 2019), which includes a USD40 saving on the Y-37 test. Ladies please remember a Y-DNA test can only be taken by males, since it exclusively focuses to the markers passed from father to son. So you'll need to find a male Reeves to donate a DNA sample on your behalf; perhaps your brother, father, uncle or male Reeves cousin. And if you are located in the UK, contact Martin for a price in pounds sterling for the Y-37 test.

    3. Hi List, I know its been a very long time since we last shared an update from the Reeves DNA Project but unrelated technical issues with both The Reeves Project (TRP) wiki and also with these Rootsweb mailing lists have conspired against us. We aim to post a quarterly summary of activity within the Reeves DNA Project and you'll find the most recent summary for the second quarter of 2018 over at TRP as part of the Latest News for July 2018 at https://thereevesproject.org/data/TRP_News_2018_07_01 You can always access TRP's "Latest News" from the left hand side of our Home Page at https://thereevesproject.org/data/HomePage_Wiki Prior to the loss of the Rootsweb archive for these mailing list, I had started to work back though all the old messages to the more genral Reeves-L to identify those which related to the growth of the Reeves DNA Project. With a little editorial licence, I've created TRP pages for Barry's e-mail notifications to that list since July 2014 and you'll find them along with all the more recent quarterly summaries at https://thereevesproject.org/data/DNA_Project_News It would be great to have a few more people with an interest in UK based Reeves genealogy take a more active part in both The Reeves Project and the Reeves DNA Project. I'm happy to answer any queries and/or provde further info (either on list or one-to-one) MartinB Co-Admin, Reeves DNA Project

    3. Hello Jana Thank you very much for your e mail. My wife and I have been trying to trace the early life of my Grandmother for several years but so far without success. Of the 8 "Adas" you have listed in your e mail, we were aware of 5, Ada Sophia, Ada Eleanor, Ada Ellen, Ada Frances and Ada Lydia. Of those 5, we have found information on 4 of them which makes it unlikely that they were my Grandmother. The exception is Ada Sophia. The information we have found on Ada Sophia fits, at least in part, the anecdotal information that we have. We think that Ada Sophia's parents were George Henry and Sophia Reeves and they had an elder child named Ernest George. We have found the family in the 1881 census and we think that George Henry died in 1884 and Sophia died in 1888. This would mean that Ada Sophia and her brother Ernest George were orphans. However, we have not been able to find any information which links Ada Sophia to the Ada Reeves who was a resident at the Certified Training School at the time of the 1891 census. We are still working on that. The other 3 "Adas" on your list were all born in 1878. Based on the ages quoted on my Grandmother's marriage certificate, the 1911 census, a document completed by my Grandfather while he was in the Army and my Grandmother's death certificate, we believe that she was born in 1880 or 1881. However, there is always the possibility that mistakes were made in relation to her age and we will look into those 3 Adas. If we find anything that indicates that one of them was my Grandmother we will let you know. Thanks again for your help.

    3. Hi Martin Many thanks for your e mail and the information you provided. I am considering in all my research the possibility that my Grandmother Ada may have been born in any London district but used Kensington for it's up market reputation. However, I have not yet been able to prove or disprove this theory. I do know about Ada Ellen Reeves birth reg. 3q 1881 and I have a copy of her Birth Certificate. According to that certificate, her Mother was Catherine Reeves but no Father's name is recorded so this Ada could have been illegitimate. It appears therefore that this Ada Ellen is not the same girl as Ada E recorded in the 1891 census in St Pancras. However, I cannot say positively that neither of these girls was my Grandmother. Ada's Daughter, Annie, (my Mother) always said that Ada believed that her Father was named Robert Reeves who was a merchant Seaman. This is confirmed on Ada's marriage certificate where her Father Robert is shown as "deceased, Seaman merchant service". Ada believed that her Father was lost at sea. I have researched this information under both Reeves and Reeve and found records of 2 seamen named Robert Reeve(s) who died in the relevant period. However, I have not been able to connect either of them to my Grandmother. My wife has been researching Ada for many years and I joined her in this task following my retirement from full time work. So far, we have not been successful in tracking Ada down but we will not give up!!!

    3. Hi David, I don't think I've come across this branch of the Reeves family previously, and not wishing to teach granny to suck eggs, I'm guessing you've seen that on the 1911 census Ada Chesters claims birth in Kensington, London. Her age of 30 is consistent with that from her marriage in 1906 that you note. Of course, she might have been born in one of the adjacent districts and choose to use the up market one :-) But working with what we have.... FreeBMD has just three birth/death entries for Ada Reeves in the period 1878-1886 in the Kensington Reg Dist, and it seems Ada b.reg. 3q1878 is likely the same Ada with d.reg. 2q1879 age 0. That leaves Ada Ellen Reeves b.reg 3q 1881 as a strong candidate. Have you already discounted her? It is possible she is the same Ada E Reeves who appears with her mother and elder sister on the 1891 census. Martin.

    3. The Virtual Reeves WW1 Memorial at http://thereevesproject.org/data/tiki-index.php?page=Virtual_WW1_Memorial now has details on 21 individuals, but we're currently stuck on this individual, so ..... Does anybody have any information concerning Frederick Joseph Reeves, born 1883 in Wroughton, Wiltshire or his family they would be prepared to share, please? He has been identified on the 1891, 1901 & 1911 census returns. He married Alice Smith in 1908 and by 1911 they had a daughter Kathleen Alice N Reeves (b1909), who is believed to have survived to adulthood (perhaps Mrs Harold WITHERS). It is probable Frederick and Alice also had a son Frederick S Reeves b1912, who also survived to adulthood, perhaps marrying Dorothy J Hartley in Swindon Reg. Dist in 1938. Is Frederick Joseph Reeves the Frederick J Reeves named on Chiseldon War Memorial? Is he the individual whose death is recorded in 4q1918 in Dorchester Registration District? Any help would be appreciated, Thanks Martin (for The Reeves Project - http://thereevesproject.org/data/ )

One hundred years ago today, 23rd August 1914, saw the first significant action involving the British Expeditionary Force during the First World War, an action we now know as the Battle of Mons. It was also on 23 August 1914 that Samuel Reeves of the 2nd Battalion, Royal Irish Regiment was killed, the first of 371 individuals with the surname Reeves who, according to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission's website, made the ultimate sacrifice during WW1. http://www.cwgc.org/find-war-dead/casualty/723763/REEVES,%20SAMUEL

    1. [REEVES-UK] Reeves near Petersfield, Hampshire in 1911-1920
    2. Martin Barker via
    3. I'm hoping somebody may have some information about one or other of two Reeves families from the 1911 census they'd care to share. Both were in the north east corner of Hampshire where it abuts both Surrey & Sussex at that time. For the Reeves Virtual WW1 Memorial at http://thereevesproject.org/data/tiki-index.php?page=Virtual_WW1_Memorial I've recently been trying to identify Private 22607 H T REEVES of 1st Battalion of the Hampshire Regiment who died in August 1916. The Commonwealth War Graves Commission site has very sparse information for him at http://www.cwgc.org/find-war-dead/casualty/490519/REEVES,%20H%20T. The GRO Index to War Deaths 1914-1921 Army (Other Ranks) page 3013 shows his name as Harry T. Reeves and "Soldiers Died in the Great War, 1914-1919" at Ancestry.com has his name as Harry Thomas Reeves and whilst lacking a birth place, it does give his residence as Petersfield, Hampshire. There is only Charles Edwin Reeves on the Petersfield War Memorial as listed at www.roll-of-honour.com/Hampshire/Petersfield.html. I've been trawling round the adjacent parishes and Froxfield's memorial lists both Charles S. Reeves and Henry Thos. Reeves. There's a picture of the memorial at http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/3359507 Sons Henry and Charles appear in the 1911 household of Charles & Rose Reeves at Bydean Cottage, Froxfield. Do you have any information you can share about this family, please? But if his given name was truly Harry, then we also need to consider Harry Reeves found at Newtown, Liphook on the 1911 census. Harry married Florence WEST in September quarter 1906, in the Petersfield Registration District and had a son Bernard Henry Reeves (2q1907). FreeBMD shows three further children with surname Reeves and mother's surname West all born within the Petersfield Registration District from 1911. The birth of this third child was registered in 3q1916, the same year that Harry Reeves died. So I'm also hoping for information about this family as well, please. All help and suggestions gratefully received, Thanks Martin

    1. [REEVES-UK] The Reeves Project - Virtual WW1 Memorial
    2. Martin Barker
    3. Hi List, Its been very quiet here for a long time and I'm hoping you may find this initiative of interest and that we can rekindle some enthusiasm. 2014 marks 100 years since the start of the First World War. The Reeves Project (TRP), a global genealogical collaboration into the Reeves name and its variants, invites you to commemorate your fallen Reeves family member on our Virtual WW! Memorial at http://thereevesproject.org/data/tiki-index.php?page=Virtual_WW1_Memorial. The Reeves Project came into existence in 2010 as a result of an innocent question asked on the Reeves list. For that reason, today the project has more American community members than from anywhere else. But I'm hoping that as a result of this e-mail to the Reeves-UK list, we might start to redress the balance. TRP is non-commercial. It is informally run by a small group of volunteers and is hosted on server capacity generously donated by Barry Reeves, one of the project's founding members. It is aligned to but independent of the Reeves DNA project, which Barry co-ordinates. In a nutshell, it's a mini Wikipedia for Reeves Genealogy, where we aim to collect and collate information about our Reeves ancestor. Our intention is that this memorial should not simply be yet another list of names. With your help and participation, we aim to give those names a context as the sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, fathers and husbands of other REEVES relatives. The wiki technology underpinning The Reeves Project allows us to easily link the narrative page of an individual to their parents and siblings. If you are not already a community member, we invite you to join The Reeves Project <http://thereevesproject.org/data/tiki-index.php?page=TRP_Join_Us> and to create a wiki page for your WW1 casualty and also pages for their parents, siblings and extended Reeves family. And even if you don't have a WW1 casualty in your immediate family, we'd still like you to join us and contribute information about your branch of the Reeves family and so we can expand our geographic coverage. Please take a look at http://thereevesproject.org/data/ and consider joining us. Thank you, Martin (from Kent but researching his Reeves family from the New Forest area of Hampshire.)

    3. Thanks Martin!  Martin and have have casually collaborated on his project over the last year and I am very impressed.  Anytime like minded researchers join forces, clusters of related trees develop and research soars!  Do take a look  at The Reeves Project (TRP) and I encourage you to add what data you have to it. Here is a free chance to get your genealogy online in a place where others will want to look. If you do add data, please let the list know so we can all take a peek to see if our paths cross.
