    1. [TRANSCRIPTIONS-UK] BARRETTO
    2. Gilbert De la Cruz
    3. Hello everyone. I am new to this list. One of my ancestor Joseph Barretto of Calcutta and Bombay who lived in London had a son by the name of Joseph Augustus Barretto with Emily Potts. Joseph Augustus was born in London in 1821. He married twice: 1. Anna Gates who was born abt 1838. They were married in December of 1881 in Kensington, Greater London, London, Middlesex registered vol 5b page 268. 2. Unknown (any of the names: Edwards,Louisa/Evans,Margaret/Gordon,Anne/ or Owens,Catherine) married Sep of 1848 in Carnarvon, Anglesey, Caernarvonshire vol XXVII page 401. No info on the children of both marriages. Since it is very impossible for me to personally check on these as I live in Manila, Philippines, would some kind hearted lister help me look-up or get a photocopy of these 2 marriage documents in case they are researching on the same records. Thank you and appreciate any help. PS. Kindly private message me at my email gd_cruz@yahoo.com Gilbert Manila, Philippines.

    1. [TRANSCRIPTIONS-UK] A new website
    2. Duty Administrator
    3. I have just unleashed www.familynotices.org onto the unsuspecting Public. Following the death of a close family member, I was infuriated and worse, at the outrageous charges the local newspaper made for posting just a small obituary. It made me think through the whole 'death notices' thing and I pondered how some persons are at their lowest ebb when trying to attend to the small details. I felt that possibly many were either disturbed at the whole horrible process and therefore would say "Yes" to anything just to be able to end the telephone conversation, or they were suffering the modern-day piety/mawkishness and want to spend as much as possible 'to show how much they cared...' - regardless the 'local rags' love it! So I created FamilyNotices.org - which is an on-line repository for all notices of Births, Deaths, Marriages, Engagements, Anniversaries and Missing Persons. This has the advantage of being world-wide, unlike the 'local rag' and better still - is free. Genealogists won't find it very useful for some time, until some numbers of posting have been made, but it has to start somewhere. I suspect there may be teething problems, but..... 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 .........& if you don't just tell me!

If anyone has the original there are 2 possible instances in 1871 census for Westoe DUR: RG105029 f4 p1 sch5 STEPHENSON ?Jno son aged 3 and " f5 p3 sch13 DIXON william ?Jno son aged 7 After these pages the enumerator has used John in full, so I wonder, but then he has also stopped abbreviating other male names. Any advice will be appreciated Regards Glenda

    2. Nancy
    3. When I first started looking  at the old  census records quite a while back, I had that same question.  All the answers that I received were that Jno was John.  - just an abbreviation that some of the census takers wrote down.  Nancy Support Our Troops God Bless America --- On Mon, 11/2/09, glendalight@manx.net <glendalight@manx.net> wrote: From: glendalight@manx.net <glendalight@manx.net> Subject: [TRANSCRIPTIONS-UK] Jno as abbreviation?

    1. Long Lost Great Uncle
    2. Barron, Margaret
    3. My great grandmother was Christina R. SEIVWRIGHT, born 1882 in Cullen, Banff-shire, Scotland to Alexander SEIVWRIGHT & Ann GORDON. I have just discovered that before she was married to my great-grandfather, she had a son illegitimately. His name was (is?) Alexander Sievewright CUMMING (the father was William Brodie CUMMING born 16 May 1874 in Fordyce, Banff-shire, Scotland to George CUMMING & Margaret STEVENSON). Alexander was known as "Sandy" and he was born 13 September 1902 at Seafield, Rathven, Banff-shire, Scotland. I had always just thought that "Sandy" was the long-lost older (full) brother of my grandfather, therefore had the BARRON surname, so I was always looking in wrong places. Christina married my great-grandfather Alexander Walker BARRON on 2 June 1905 at Rathven, Banff-shire. At the time of their marriage, Alexander W. Barron was living on North Castle street in Cullen, Banff-shire, Scotland and was employed as a coachman. Christina resided in Seafield, Rathven, Banff-shire, Scotland and was employed as a fishmonger and domestic servant. He had served as a Bombardier in the 53rd Battery of the Royal Field Artillery in the Boer War and was still with the Royal Field Artillery in 1914. In 1917, he was Sergeant 85525 with the Fife Yeomanry. Alexander W. Barron & Christina R. Seivwright had several children: 1. John Walker BARRON - Born 6 August 1905 at 49 Seafield Street, Cullen, Banff-shire, Scotland. He served with the 48th Highlanders of Canada during WWII. He died in Toronto, Ontario. 2. Mary Isabella BARRON - Born 17 March 1907 at 28 Reidhaven Street, Cullen, Banff-shire, Scotland. Died in Owen Sound, Simcoe Co, Ontario. 3. Alice Gordon BARRON - Born 12 April 1909 at Forgieside, Boharm, Banff-shire, Scotland. Died of cancer in the late 1940's in Toronto, Ontario. 4. George Brian Tore BARRON (my grandfather) - Born 24 December 1914 at 36 Pennan Village, Aberdour, Aberdeen-shire, Scotland. Died 24 December 1988 at Perth Community Care Centre, Perth, Lanark Co, Ontario and is buried with his wife at the Munster Union Cemetery in Munster (just outside Ottawa), Ontario. 5. Joseph Colin BARRON - Born 4 December 1917 at 21 Bristo Street, Edinburgh, Mid-lothian, Scotland. Died tragically in the early 1990's in Toronto, Ontario. He served with the 48th Highlanders of Canada during WWII. 6. Anne BARRON - Born in 1920 in Scotland, although we cannot locate a birth record for her there. She is still living. Alexander Walker & Christina R. (Seivwright) BARRON and all of their children, except "Sandy" left Scotland and settled in Toronto, Ontario, Canada about 1922/23 when they are found in the Toronto directory. They kept in touch with "Sandy" regularly until the years around WWII, when they lost contact. We've always assumed that he died serving in WWII, but he cannot be found on the Commonwealth Graves website (I've tried searching all possible miss-spellings of his surname, including using Seivwright and Barron as his surname). I realize that by the time that they lost touch he may not have even been living in Scotland anymore. I have no idea where to go next with my search. If anyone has any info at all on my grandfathers long-lost half-brother, Alexander "Sandy" Sievewright CUMMING or how I could go about finding out what happened to him please contact me. This has always been a huge family mystery and my goal is to solve it before the last of my grandfather's generation passes away (his youngest sibling, Ann is still alive at age 84). Thanks! Maggie Barron Ottawa, Ontario, Canada rothycat@hotmail.com
