    1. [UK-NORTHEAST] List Closures
    2. Kim Milne
    3. In the event of the closure of our list I've created a NORTHEAST-UK (note the minor name change) list on the groups.io platform & several listers have already signed up. To make it easiest to transfer over I intend to send an invitation to every existing UK-NORTHEAST subscriber from the list to join https://groups.io/g/NORTHEAST-UK The message will carry my name in the invitation......that's only because I'm List Admin. Those wishing to subscribe to the new list will need to click on the " accept the invitation" link in the message. Those of you who have already signed on will need to do nothing more & can just ignore the message altogether. Kim List Admin

    1. [UK-NORTHEAST] Closure of Rootsweb Mailing Lists
    2. Kim Milne
    3. Rootsweb has sent the following:- Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state. Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb. However, as an alternative, I've created a list on the https://groups.io platform which operates in the same form as the present Rootsweb system. You can find it at https://groups.io/g/NORTHEAST-UK ........Note the minor name change...... and if you scroll down to the lower left you'll find the links to subscribe, unsubscribe, post messages etc. I should point out that Rootsweb lists will operate as normal until the 2nd of March, 2020.

    3. Hi Kim If you find the present Harriet street off the B1313, Bond street was just above it It all looks to have been redeveloped If you look at an old OS map, find Byker, there is the footprint of an H shaped school, Bond street was directly above it running across Union street (the B1313) Nivard Ovington in Cornwall (UK) On 12/11/2018 00:53, Kim Milne wrote: > My father (long deceased) was born at 236 Bond St, Byker.

    1. [UK-NORTHEAST] Troop deployment and activity in WW11
    2. Mary Newbery
    3. Thank you Steve for welcoming to the list, I do hope someone out there can help me. I am struggling to find out how the military was deployed in Northumberland in WW11. Presumably there had to be some sort of local headquarters and command centre to decide which and how troops were to be deployed. I’m particularly interested in central Northumberland, and in particular the small village of Warkworth, where there were apparently lots of military personnel based in and around it. How was it decided which troops would be sent to such areas and what was the main purpose? Did troops rotate between service abroad and service at home? Were particular regiments deployed in particular areas or were they a motley collection of merged as well as distinctive regiments. Was there a policy of keeping soldiers in their home localities or the absolute opposite, or did it purely depend on skill mix? Were older/younger/ less fit people deployed on the domestic front? What was the main purpose? Training? There are still ranges on the Northumbrian Moors. Coastal and estuary defences? There were miles of beaches to be reinforced with barbed wire and concrete blocks. Observation? Shipping, submarines? Are there records of which troops were deployed in a particular area at a certain time? Was their guidance as to how they were to interact with the local population? I feel sure these questions should be easy enough to answer but I’ve been going in circles for some time. I’ve tried Woodhorn Archives, Local History Societies, Newspapers, but have just got anecdotal responses. Am I even asking the right questions? I realise that accessing individual’s records is not an option unless a close relative, but surely troop deployments, roles, tasks, periods of service should not be clouded in mystery or secrecy. Please can someone help me cut though the fog? Yours hopefully, Mary Sent from Mail for Windows 10

    3. After a long period during which we've been unable to post or receive list mail, Rootsweb's lists are again up & running. Why not post your interests or brickwalls as someone among the several hundred subscribers may just have the info you've always been seeking. For example, my MILNE ancestors came originally from Angus in Scotland before moving progressively via Edinburgh before fetching up permanently in Newcastle upon Tyne. They were a family of cordwainers/shoemakers & lived mainly in the Byker area. My father was the only member to move overseas (to Western Australia in the 1920s) but there must be descendants still in the area. Any takers?

To all UK Northeast Listers who have not booked already, there are only 10 days to go before this north-east Guild of One-Name Studies seminar. How about joining us and perhaps bringing along a friend or acquaintance? No restrictions in attendees, in fact the more from outside the Guild, the greater our publicity.

Many families worldwide originated in the area and the history of Northumberland and Durham very often ties in with attendees families. We are attempting to cover the major industries of the north east. The speakers will include Gill Parkes (Durham County Record Office) on Coal Mining with an update of the Hidden Depths project. Carolyn Ball (Tyne and Wear Archives) ­ North East Shipbuilding. Peter Wood (a glass family descendant) - Glassmaking in Sunderland Stuart Miller (Streetnames in Sunderland Project Manager) - What's in a name? Streetnames of Sunderland.

    3. Hi Sheila I suspect you will have as much access to records as any other person If you go to freebmd and enter Joseph HASSAN the nearest birth and only one 1911 to 1915 is a birth registered in the March qtr of 1914 reg Newcastle If you then look for marriages there are several, the only one in the Newcastle reg district is in 1940 to a BROWN (Joseph A HASSAN in this case) Assuming that is him, then try freebmd for a birth with parents names HASSAN & BROWN Again there are several but only two in Newcastle both boys The death reg in 1995 gives his birthdate as 13th Dec 1913 but the birth may have been registered late (ie March qtr 1914) In 1939 NIR in Newcastle there is a Joseph HASSON (sic) birth date 13th Dec 1913 a warehouseman ARP With presumably his parents (relationships are not recorded) Joseph HASSON (HASSAN) b14th Apr 1890 a steel erector, Gertrude HASSON b16th May 1893 unpaid domestic duties, a John HASSON b15th Mar 1916 a plumber and two others, possibly siblings to young to be opened as yet To get more I suspect you may need to buy certificates Nivard Ovington in Cornwall (UK) On 09/06/2016 12:58, Sheila Beer via wrote: > can anyone tell be about this chaps children? > > Thank you > > Sheila
