    FamilySearch is likely.no worse.than any other genealogy charting application. Its contributors are.almost all amateur family historians just like most of us are on Ancestry and elsewhere. I've seen plenty of inaccurate public trees on Ancestry.com.

Video probably end of the week,sorry about the sunglasses as when i left it was sunny plus i'm not well too.

    Hi Paul, This is a strange one. The grave you found is B C 31 purchased by Ellen Brown, 67 Peasley Cross Lane but the occupants are recorded as: Mary Alice Massey, 25 years, 4 Alma Street, 8th May 1902 Albert Massey, 4 years, St Helens Hospital, 9th November 1903 Amy Forber, 15 months, 23 Manor Street, 16th March 1914 Maud Hill, 13 months, 49 Peasley Cross Lane, 10th February 1915 Albert Hill, 6 years, 49 Peasley Cross Lane, 5th July 1918 Ellen Brown, 89 years, 67 Peasley Cross Lane, 11th August 1943. There is a note showing the grave is full. I suspect that Mary Alice Massey was Ellen’s daughter from her first marriage. The Forber and Hill children also appear to be related through her first marriage.

    I'd still recommend the DNA route for people who want to verify/solidify the paper-trail research. Otherwise you really don't know much for sure. Until I did it I was very sceptical about its benefits and I'd look at all the discouraging articles, finding excuses for not participating, but when you do positively verify some of your various surmised lines and the theories it can be quite exhilarating. You've got the proof to back it up. Experience and observations also show that it isn't really for the faint-hearted though, because it can lead to some nasty shocks and potentially alter the perception of your identity.

    Am beggining to think with Edward Brown it might be the other way round, burial at St Nics but funeral elsewhere, probably Holy Trinity. Glad you found them both @PaulC

    Not sure about the reason for Edward’s burial service but I am aware that services are sometimes held prior to internment in public graveyards. St Helens newspaper archives might have a report if he did die in Isle of Wight. The Church office might be the place to start for a copy of their register entries.
