Default Ancestry.

Since the lockdown started i have joined " Findmypast" If you are bored with life, you will find this very interesting and addictive. I remember visiting my g/parents house in the 50s, my g/parents lived in a small 2 up 2 down terraced house was always amazed that they only used one room to live in. My g/mothers bachelor brother lived in one half of the house. My mothers brother who was was only in his 50s was bedridden and lived in his bed by the side of the fireplace. In 1901 census my g/mother lived in the house with her widowed father, sister and 3 brothers. In the 1911 census, same house g/mother was married with the first 3 of her 10 children plus her bachelor brother and another brother and his wife and their two children. Just wondered, how would they have coped with the lockdown.

An older cousin beat me to it, traced our family all the way back to one of Robert the Bruce's sisters, can't recall which one but have a copy of the tree somewhere.

If you have irish ancestry, a lot of records were destroyed in the Four Courts fire in 1922, approx. 3/4!), there are a lot of free sites out there.

Irish Genealogy

Catholic Parish Records

and dont forget to check out whilst on FMP the British National Registers. The Northern Irish National Registers are closed records but can be had by making an FOI request via PRONI (email proni@communities-ni.gov.uk)

Tithe Applotment Books (useful for pre 1860s records)

........... and if you have the full access within FMP, their access to the British National Archive (which can be subscribed to separately) is another fantastic source for information, in particular obituaries, but also court case reporting on individuals lol.

I am 2 parts Irish, 1 part Herefordshire and 1 part Cornwall. My niece has gone back to the 1500s in Cornwall where my 6t g/grandfather has a will sharing out his land. Been meaning to go down there one day to put in a claim.

when you get to the 1700s, you have to become creative in where to look (also have to remember too, that simply there may not be records to be found). Church records generally would be the best place to search around this time (baptisms, burials and marriages).

PRONI (mentioned above) have a number of online PDF leaflets which are quite useful, particularly for Irish ancestry, but the principles will still apply to England and Scotland. LINK

You may be able to obtain a copy of the will via the National Archives

Irish National Archive Will Calendar and further information HERE

PRONI Will Calendar (currently only until 1968)

Just remembered another useful site, for emigrants

https://immigrantships.net/index2.html

I am avoiding firing up my work laptop at the minute, but will be later and will hunt out some additional useful links.
