    Mirror Tree query

    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

    Mirror Tree query

    Hope you figured it out Woodsman, I couldn't help because I've never attempted to make a 'mirror tree', I was lucky in that I never needed to use that route

    Incident at Thatto Heath

    That an old report Phyll from 2011, it's not the same incident as Hort reported earlier. The recent one was in Sunbury St/Howard St whereas the old incident was in Scholes Lane.

    DNA, Ancestry recommend public tree

    1st and 2nd cousins are a great start! It took me 9 months to get such a close match - well done!

    Find My Past

    Find My Past has unlocked some records today and is offering a freebie (be quick though I think it might just be for Friday). I just found my Mum listed for the first time on the 1939 census, she was born in 1918 https://blog.findmypast.co.uk/findmypast-friday-2592135791.html

    DNA, Ancestry recommend public tree

    I hadn't a clue either when I first started researching but with a years membership and reading some of the sites and info that's around you soon pick up on bits of info that start to make sense. It's a slow process and can't be speeded up but once you start digging you'll learn about short cuts and where to look for clues. If you start with a private tree you can always change the setting should you want to - nothing is set in stone
  7. I was gonna ask for that but I've just checked and it's already in my collection

    DNA, Ancestry recommend public tree

    Missed this...mine is public because I didn't see the point searching for relatives/matches while I'm hiding half my details. Living people aren't shown anyway in public trees so there is some privacy already exists. Over the years it's become the norm to hear people complaining that all their matches are private and they cannot conduct any worthwhile searches. But again it's something only you can decide - so best of luck added 8 minutes later I've never had anyone contact me that I wasn't happy to hear from either..

    Fantastic trip around our town. So many familiar places and a few new ones - that massage place is one I haven't seen before

    Y-DNA (& Autosomal DNA)

    Good! It must be a relatively quiet period right now I got a test result back last week which was done in 20 days! That's a record time in my experience! My current sub ends in August so I'm going to look around for their cheapest renewals shortly

    Another Stabbing!

    I hope so, it's shocking how he died but not to know who killed him or why it happened is cruel. Eight months waiting for answers is a long time

    Another Stabbing!

    https://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/liverpool-news/adam-ellison-prescot-murder-crimewatch-14830188 This case is still unsolved and was featured on Crime Watch last week. The young man who was murdered was Adam Ellison, I know his Mum, Joyce, well, she and his Dad and sisters and girlfriend are devastated that no one has been charged so far. Adam was a decent, ordinary inoffensive young man who was hardworking and had never been in trouble with the police. He worked at Tesco in Prescot and was a lad any mother would have been proud of. I'm just bumping the post in the hope that it might help remind people that those responsible are still out there in the community.

    Y-DNA (& Autosomal DNA)

    I haven't used Legacy but I have done an autosomal test with Ancestry and found it be extremely accurate and useful. I've traced (formerly unknown) relatives in the US and been in touch with a number of them so expanding my family tree exponentially. I've no qualms about security or some of the scare stories one hears because if it helps bring a criminal to justice or solve some tragic murder (what's not to like?) It's the best thing I've spent money on in a long time. I'm totally hooked and quite impressed by the whole experience and have only heard the same from everyone else I know who's taken a test.

    Thanks for the info, my grandchildren might like it but I'll hold my judgement for now 🙁

    Yes I noticed earlier, it's huge and taking up virtually the rest of the site. I'm not convinced a bowling alley is wanted or needed in this town but we'll see..
