    One of the best things about US records is listing parents names and places of birth on death certs, it can get you back 100 years or more.

    I've just rejoined Ancestry with a WW membership and found Death and Marriage certs online. I paid for some of these years ago when I first started searching and had to jump through hoops to get them because I was in a different country. Now they're all there included in my membership sub. The UK should take notice and do the same

    Have seen a photo of a 1906 rail crash at Junction Station . The train smashed into station masters building . Apart from the year it happened no other info . Was train going too fast ?Was it derailed by something on track etc ? Was anybody hurt ? . There might well be some info on here but I have used search engine at top of page and not been able to find any link .

    Fantastic pics (as usual ) youv'e brought back many happy memories. If I'd have known you were going, perhaps we could have rounded up the railway enthusiasts on this site, hired a charabanc and had a good day out. But, on second thoughts seeing all the goodies on sale I'd have been tempted and would have spent a fortune. Still, there's always next time.

    The unanswered message thing is a pain. Something you might try in future is to go to the member's main profile page and use the message facility from there instead of the DNA profile. I don't know if it is true, but I heard rumours that the email notification mightn't work from the latter. If the person that you're trying to contact only uses the app on a phone or a tablet (where messaging doesn't exist) then you need to be sure that at least they will be notified via email. One for my wish-list is something to indicate that a message has been opened/read.

    Looked on lots of sites but apart from the photo no info. I presume another train ran into it and derailed carriage , Looking on Stephen Wainwrights excellent Sutton Beauty site , on the transport time line . Numerous accidents and incidents over the years at St Helens Junction , the 'Sutton incline' often mentioned Just how dangerous it was is referred to in an extract from Daily Post "January 1860 - Three trains collided on Sutton incline. In its report of the accident on the 9th, the Liverpool Daily Post wrote: 'It is a remarkable fact that though there are many more dangerous stations on the London and North-western Railway than St.Helen's Junction, yet it has always been noted for misfortune...Strange to say, it is the fourth accident which has occurred at this place in the short space of one month."

    Thanks for the compliment Hort, but I did look the other night and I couldn't find anything except that pic on Sutton Beauty captioned 1906, I agree with Ratty could be the 1858 entry as no entry is listed for 1906. Just found this, could this be the same accident? No date on this one either. http://www.archive-images.co.uk/gallery/Archive-Images-of-Lancashire-Railways/image/8/St_Helens_Junction_train_crash

    Coming from Manchester and heading north on M6 is a great improvement with its right turn instead of having to go all the way round the "island"

    Coming from St.Helens and turning right onto the M6 South is a big improvement in the Design from what it was.
