I have been reearching the following names in and around St. Helens:   Gornall: they moved to St. Helens cir 1849, moving down from Preston and Leyland.   Porter: from cir 1844 around Windle area, previous to this thought to be from Prescot.   Almond: cir 1811 in Billinge, 1844 in and around Windle.   There are other secondary names connected with these but I have only scant information on them.   Regards Denis Gornall

    Looking for information for an ANGELO BOTTEL (BOTTLE) born 1855 in St Helens. He married a Caroline ? I suspect sometime before 1876 when his first child Thomas was born. There are seven other children, information on any of these would be appreciated. He appears in both the 1881 & 1901 Census lists.

    St Catherine Index

    By val,
    The St Catherine Index can be viewed in three ways - the original books at the Family Records Centre London, on microfilms, and on fiche cards. When I was in St Helens last week I had an hour to spare and popped into the St Helens Archive, the fiche readers were free so I asked if I could look at the St Catherine Index on a fiche reader. The archivist told me the Index is only on microfilm and none are available anywhere on fiche cards. I was unable to convince her even though I used the cards
