    1. Rootsweb Mailing lists are being updated please read.
    2. Merle & Ida King
    3. Dear RootsWeb mailing list subscriber, We are excited to announce that in the coming weeks, the RootsWeb.com mailing lists will be moving to a new list management system. Why? The new list management system offers updated technology, better spam control, and more efficient hosting of the lists. When? All the lists won't be updated all at once. In fact, once we start it will take us about two weeks to complete the process. We've posted the additional details about the update and a current update schedule at the link below. http://lists.rootsweb.com/index/migrate_sched.html This page can also be found by following the link found on http://lists.rootsweb.com. If there are any changes to the schedule, we'll update this page to let you know. How will it Affect You? Your current subscription(s) will automatically transfer to the new system so there will be no need to re-subscribe to your list(s), however, because the sending and receiving of list email will be handled by a new system, you may notice a few changes to your list(s). Digest subscribers will notice a small difference in the layout, volume and issue numbers of the list digests. The "-L" is being dropped from the "official" list name. This means the "from" address your mailing list emails come from will be slightly different- ListName@rootsweb.com vs. the current ListName-L@rootsweb.com. You may have to adjust your spam filters or put the new address on your "accept" list to prevent it from being caught in your "junk" folder. This sounds like a big change, but it doesn't have to change the way you use the list. Here's why: - You will still be able to send messages to the list using the "ListName-L@rootsweb.com" email address you use today. Additionally, you can choose to drop the "-L" and send your messages to ListName@rootsweb.com. Both addresses will work after the list has been migrated. - You will still be able to subscribe and unsubscribe to the mail or digest mode by sending your request to ListName-L-request@rootsweb.com or ListName-D-request@rootsweb.com as you do today. You will also be able to unsubscribe from the mail or digest mode by sending your "unsubscribe" message to LISTNAME-request@rootsweb.com. The tools that list administrators use to manage their list will also be changing. If you are a list admin, you will be contacted in an additional email on Monday with more details and a link to a tutorial. We're excited about the improvements to the lists because we feel confident that they will ensure that the mailing lists continue to run smoothly for years to come. We appreciate your patience while we make this transition and hope that the RootsWeb mailing lists will continue to be a valuable tool in your genealogy research. Thanks, The Rootsweb Staff ********************************************** You received this message from RootsWeb as a one-time email notification of upcoming changes to the mailing list(s) you subscribe to.

    2. Merle & Ida King
    3. Hi John Sorry for the delay in responding. Thank you for the photo's off list although I can't help you regarding family resembelences. as my Smallmans were much earlier than the photo's you sent. Janet our list hostess may be able to help you. If not have you checked out the earlier census for Richard Smallman. Checking the 1881 census a Richard Smallman in Enville as a carpenter and subpostmaser having a daughter Jane abt 1857 living with him. In the IGI I see a Richard Smallam wife Ellen having a daughter Ellen Sep 5 1854 I have them as living in Enville, They could very well be one in the same couples. but a check of the census should help. Sorry I can't help you there. please let us know how you make out.

    1. Re: [SM-man UK] Ernest Smallman
    2. Hello Audrey, I have nothing of Ernest Smallman or his family, from the web site article it seems they are from the Stafford area. Had a quick look at the IGI and he is listed as born Wolverhampton, father William, record submitted by a member (of Latter Day Saints) no further info available.So someone out there has done some research and he obviously belongs to a family that have submitted records to the LDS after 1991. Anybody out there got any time to do some digging ?? Regards Janet

    2. Anyone with any links to an Ernest Smallman & family who originated from Bourne, Stafford, and later ran a newsagents in Horsley Fields, Wolverhampton should go to- _http://homepages.which.net/~rex/bourne/smallman.htm_ (http://homepages.which.net/~rex/bourne/smallman.htm) . Here they will find details of a family photo album that was discovered in their old shop premises when a new owner bought the property. It is a lovely story and worth looking at even if not related. The lady who has the album would love to pass it on to relatives. Many thanks to Ian Beach of Sedgley Manor who forwarded this on to me. Hope your all O.K. out there Janet

    1. Re: [SM-man UK] CHARLES SMALLMAN b.1851 Kinver.
    2. Hello John, I do know of Smallman`s at Enville but do not have any history of them. My interest is Smallman from Sedgley, i have looked at the Enville Smallman`s a long time ago and did not find them related to the Sedgley line. There were as you stated quite a lot of Smallmans in Shropshire. I have seen articles on the Enville Smallmans in a local publication called `The Black Country Bugle` have a look, they have an archive, though it does not cover every article published.They also have an email contact and may be able to send you the articles. _www.blackcountrybugle.co.uk/_ (http://www.blackcountrybugle.co.uk/) Funnily enough i was at the Enville Estate only yesterday, not visiting` the big house` !! but watching a football match,my grandson plays for Enville F.C.. The house was rebuilt after a fire there, not sure of the date`s but i think this is where the Smallman`s were mentioned.It`s a lovely estate and when you walk around it via the public rights of way you can only imagine the wealth these people had and the enormous numbers of staff they needed to run such an estate.My friend lives in Blundies Lane, and though there are many old estate cottages, houses and farms buildings belonging to the estate there are only a few in Blundies Lane being mainly new very expensive executive homes and middle range 1930`s-50`s i guess.If you want any photo`s let me know and i`ll take some in the next few weeks when i`m doing my football supporter bit. Can email as attachment to you. Sorry not to be more helpfull. Regards Janet

    1. Re: Rhoda and William Smallman
    2. Hello Arlie, I`m sure that one of our listers has done some work on this family, unless of course it is you who have previously corresponded. It is the Gornal connection that rings a bell, so hopefully if someone out there has any info on this particular family they will be in touch. All that i have is probably the same info you have. William Smallman marr Rhoda Mason at St Thomas. Dudley.1810 Children, Joseph bapt 1813. Sedgley, Samuel 1815 Sedgley. Mary 1819 Dudley, then Sarah, David, Reuben and Silas all bapt. same date 22 Jan 1836 Gornall. I have`nt got a William bapt around 1780`s. Gornal borders the parish`s of Kingswinford, and Dudley and there were Smallman`s in these Parish`s. Perhaps one our listers can help with this one. Regards Janet

    1. Rhoda and William Smallman
    2. A Bjorn
    3. Hello everyone. I am working on the Rhoda and William Smallman line, from the Dudley, Sedgley area England. They had 10 or 11 children. I have two or three Josephs, Sameul, Mary,Hannah, George, Sarah, David, Reuben, and Silas. Mary did some baptism for the dead records. It shows Mary's father's name as George. She didn't know William Smallman's parents names. She immigrated to New York May 12, 1840 on the ship England. The 1841 census shows William, Rhoda, Joseph, Hannah, Sarah, David, Reuben, and Joseph living in lower Gornal. Next door is Saml, Pheve and Hannah age one. On Oct. 3 1848 William, Rhoda, Joseph, Sarah, Hannah, and Reuben came to New York on the ship Marmion. David also came on another ship. I would love to have any information or changes you might have. Thanks, Arlie Bjorn

    1. Repost ancestors
    2. Hello Smallmans, Love the idea`s and felt so tempted to volounteer but have let 24 hrs go by to think it through and i know i just have`nt got the time to commit at the moment, and like Satima i`m not techie enough.Enough excuses, perhaps next year when i`ve taken early retirement, but maybe there is someone out there who would love to do it ?? I do think it would be a good idea if we all reposted our direct lines, just in a very basic format and any newbies could find their connections easily and then trawl through the SMALLMAN archives to find whatever info they needed. If anyone has updated their tree and found further info perhaps that could be added also. All the best Janet

I have site fior my FLAVELL mailing list but I always have to get my son to update it as it's in javascript and I'm not very techie. You can look at it here: http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~satima/flavlist/index.html Site don't have to be in javascript: it's just the way my son did it. There are easier ways. Anyone keen enough to give it a go? You can get a freepage by folowing the instructions here: http://accounts.rootsweb.com/index.cgi?op=show&page=freagree.htm and we could upload our gedcoms, perhaps a combination based on Ida's database, here http://wc.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igmuser.cgi Cheers, Satima > Justin <justin.hague@btopenworld.com> wrote: > > Hi and Good morning to all those Smallman researchers. > > Help is required?? > > I'm looking for any leads on the following, > I would like to find were James lived during 1810 and if I'm lucky to > out > find a bit more about James's parents. > > About James Smallman > James Smallman was born on the 5th August 1790 > > Mum and dad where; > > Name DOB > > John Smallman 1754 - Died 9th Oct 1802 > Hannah 1750 - Died Oct 1798 (actual day unknown) > > James Married Elizabeth Smith (born on Halloween 1793) at Wolverhampton, > St > Peters DEC 24th 1810 they had 10 children as follows. > > Name DOB > > 1) May Anne Born 9th March 1812 > 2) Elihu Born 21st Nov 1814 > 3) Hannah Born 11th April 1817 > 4) James Born 7th Dec 1819 > 5) Emma Born 14th Jan 1822 > 6) John (jon?)

    1. WHO`S WHO OF SMALLMANS !!
    2. Hello everybody. we have been quiet for a long time and having been prompted by the email from Justin where he stated it was difficult to see who was related to whom I wondered if anybody had any ideas about how we could post our interests/lines/branches in such a way as a new Smallman enquirer could pick up on their particular family line straight away. I`m sure that work has progressed with all of us but we have not updated our searches etc with each other or the list. Any ideas ?? All the best to you all- Janet

    1. James & Elizabeth
    2. Hello Justin, Welcome to the Smallman mailing list, if you hav`nt subscribed yet please do so and you will get all mails regarding SMALLMAN. We are only a small group and i think all of us are descended from the same couple Edward and Elizabeth who married in Sedgley in 1688. We have tried to fit together all the descendants of this couple through our listers, some have been proven and others are supposition it is still an ongoing research. As you said in your mail like a jigsaw. One of our great contributors Ida King gathered and collated all the Smallman entries, she has researched the line of James & Elizabeth, and has much information on it. I think you have the same family and i`m sure she will be in touch. All the info is posted in the SMALLMAN archives though i think we did have a query about the James and Elizabeth marriage, i will have to go back and check that out. I think Ida could sort that out for you. Re- Walsall and Wolverhampton Parish Churches. WALSALL-ST MATTHEW. There are mircrofilm copies at Walsall Lib.(Local History Dept) and at Staffs. Record Office.The registers are also transcribed by the BMSGH and you can purchase copies, aswell as bapts and burials there is a transcript of burial ground, but check this out on their site www.bmsgh.org/ WOLVERHAMPTON-ST PETERS. This is the old parish church. It still very much there in the middle of W`ton. To get info on it go to GENUKI or Wolverhampton Archives their site is www.wolverhamptonarchives.dial.pipex.com/. I take your point about a lot of SMALLMAN updates and not being able to see who is related to whom and which particular family line. Perhaps our little group may be able to do something about that and i will be posting a separate appeal on that subject. Will wait and see what Ida has regarding your family and then be in touch again, Regards Janet

    3. Hi and Good morning to all those Smallman researchers. Help is required?? I'm looking for any leads on the following, I would like to find were James lived during 1810 and if I'm lucky to out find a bit more about James's parents. About James Smallman James Smallman was born on the 5th August 1790 Mum and dad where; Name DOB John Smallman 1754 - Died 9th Oct 1802 Hannah 1750 - Died Oct 1798 (actual day unknown) James Married Elizabeth Smith (born on Halloween 1793) at Wolverhampton, St Peters DEC 24th 1810 they had 10 children as follows. Name DOB 1) May Anne Born 9th March 1812 2) Elihu Born 21st Nov 1814 3) Hannah Born 11th April 1817 4) James Born 7th Dec 1819 5) Emma Born 14th Jan 1822 6) John (jon?) Born 29th Feb 1824 Died 27th Feb 1859 Died 4th Aug 1859 (Buried at Walsall Cemetery) 7) Isaac Born 18th Oct 1826 Died 9th Oct 1827 8) Rebekha Born 11th Sept 1828 Died 10th Jan 1852 (Buried at Saint Peters Walsall 9) Reuben Born 4th August 1834 10) Josephus Born 17th Mar 1837 11) Rebekha Born 8th Jan 1852 Died 27th Feb 1852 If anybody has any leads one of the above children or think they maybe related I would be very interested to her from you Dose St. Peters, Walsall, hold any family history with burial documentation. Also dose anybody know where Wolverhampton old church is. Has it changed its name over the years I can't find it? There seems to be quite a lot of Smallam updates and it's become very difficult to find out who could be related to whom? Has any body started a Super Smallman Family tree, which will allow people from around the world to easily see if their currently family tree fits into what has already been found out? Kind of like a jigsaw. Thanks for your help Justin
