    1. [TRANSCRIPTIONS-CAN] A new website - www.familynotices.org
    2. Nigel Penton Tilbury
    3. Posted with the kind permission of the Listowner. You are cordially invited to visit www.familynotices.org, a totally non-commercial & privately-owned site. Following the death of a close family member, I was surprised at the charges levied by the local newspaper for posting just a small obituary. The same applies to birth, engagement, marriages notices et al. It made me think through the whole 'public notices' thing and I created FamilyNotices.org which is an on-line repository for all such, with no fees or charges to view, search or post. Unlike a newspaper this has the advantage of being world-wide, free and doesn't get thrown away! Please feel free to help yourself and post anything which is relevant and appropriate - and it doesn't have to be current. Details of 'Auntie Millie born in 1896' is just as relevant as a modern-day wedding notice. If you like it, please tell your friends, for anyone is welcome to post good news or sad news. .........& if you don't, just tell me! Cheers for now, Nigel ______________________________________________ FamilyNotices.org - the free online repository for all notices of Births, Deaths, Marriages, Engagements, Anniversaries and Missing Persons Doing it for free - unlike the newspapers !

    1. [TRANSCRIPTIONS-CAN] samuel norris
    2. Christine Shelmerdine
    3. After 30 years of searching I have actually located my great grandfather. He was in England at the time of the 1881 census but I have now found him on a census in 1891 New Brunswick in the Almshouse he was listed as a Pauper Boot and Shoe maker. After some searching I have been able to locate his death some three years after the census but at the same place. I have read up a little about the Almshouse and it says that a person was allowed to stay up to about three months. Would this mean that he alternated between being a resident there and then expelled only to return again. Mt great grandfather was called SAMUEL NORRIS born in Armaugh Ireland to Irish parents. He was born in 1823, was 68 on the census and his death was 1894. he was buried in a Church of England graveyayd, I presume that it would be a paupers grave. I am a little upset at what I have found but as family history researchers we should expect such things. I would love to find out how he filled his life in new Brunswick ? I haven't found his entry into the country but it could be anytime between 1881-91. Did he go out there to see someone, he told lies about his life, he stated that he was a widower and indeed he was not that, however my greatgrandmother re-married in 1899. I feel sure that there are family connections in Canada, many Irish people settled in New Brunswick, perhaps he had siblings there. Is there anyone on the list who can give me guidance as to how I can find out more about him and his sad ending. Thanking you for taking time to read this, Christine Shelmerdine nee Norris

    3. Hi, FamilyTrackers is looking for people to help index some images from the Oradea Jewish Cemetery in Oradea, Bihor, Romania. The publisher has uploaded the images and offered to share revenue with anyone who will create the indices for the images. There are also some projects in English. It requires someone who can read the names and dates from an image and enter it into an Excel file - then upload the file. When an item sells, payment is made to both publisher and indexer. Details at http://www.familytrackers.com/ where you can sign up for free and find available projects. If you are interested in doing something like this, let me know at Gene@FamilyTrackers.com and I'll help you get started and walk you through the process. Thanks. Gene

    1. Learning the craft of genealogy online
    2. Kylie Veale
    3. Fellow genealogists, Have you ever used the Internet to learn about genealogy methods and resources? Taken a genealogy course online? Read some 'how to' articles? Then I would like to hear from you. I am an Australian Ph.D. student who is currently writing a book chapter for an academic Virtual Learning Environment publication - my chapter is about using the Internet for genealogical education. I would therefore love to hear from you, fellow genealogists, about any Internet-based content you've used for genealogy education. This includes online courses (free or fee), how-to's, articles/columns, newsgroups, BBS, chat, mailing lists, forums, or even personal web pages that publish learning material - anything online that helps you in learning the craft of genealogy. Your comments on the following is of utmost interest: What are your favourite learning outlets on the Internet? How often do you use them? Can or did you find what you needed online? What are your learning successes? What could be better? What do you look for in genealogical learning on the Internet? If you would like to participate, your comments are extremely welcome. Please send your comments to me directly at research@veale.com.au before Saturday 1st May 2004. I thank you in advance for your participation in this academic research. Kylie Veale P.S. Names and email addresses will be protected and are therefore not included in the publication. Copies of the paper will be made available to interested participants on request, after the book has been published. ----------------------------------------------- Kylie J.

Are the area's recognizable from the W6 and W1, or is it necessary to order the film. I don't want to order the film if the area is too far fetched. Thanks for any suggestions. Beverley
