My Genealogy Web Footprint - Part 4 - Rootschat


In this, Part 4 of My Genealogy Web Footprint blog post series, I will look at posts I made to the forums at RootsChat.com between 2005 and 2010.

2005

1841 Census Lookup - PURVIS posted Monday 31 October 2005. A lookup request. This post relates to my 3 x Great Grandmother, Catherine Helen Pickis, of London, and her aunt and uncle James and Dorothy Purvis of South Shields, Durham. At this stage I believe Dorothy (maiden name not yet known) was possibly a sister of Catherine's mother Elizabeth (maiden name not yet known). This is a brick wall I still need to break down. 
Bridport Parish Registers - DAVEY/DAVY posted Monday 31 October 2005. A lookup request. Regarding the family of my 3 x Great Grandmother Mary Anne Davey. I have since been able to find what I believe to me Mary's sister Susan's baptism on the Dorset records available on Ancestry.com.au.

Link: Wiltshire and Swindon Archive Catalogue - Wills Search posted Friday 29 December 2006. I had been waiting for the Wiltshire and Swindon Archives to release their Wills index so I could look up some of my Heading ancestors from Berkshire. When I realised the records were online I had to share the news with others, hoping to give something small back to the RootsChat community (even if it was just a link) so that I was not just taking through lookup requests. 


2007
Newnham Murren - PRs Lookup - HUTTON posted Friday 27 April 2007.
A lookup request. This post regards my continuing search for my Hutton ancestors.
'DeRenzie Percival' or 'Percival DeRenzie' posted Thursday 27 December 2007.As mentioned in Part 3 of this blog post series, this post also regards my search for the origins of the unusual name Derenzie Percival, which occurs in my Fullerton family.  
FULLERTON Thomas, 58th Regt., 1828, Naas, Co. Kildare, IRE posted Thursday 27 December 2007. This post regards a possible lead I was following up regarding other people with the name Fullerton from County Kildare, Ireland. I now don't believe this soldier has anything to do with my Fullerton/Fullard ancestors. 


2008
Post-1858 Probate Index Lookup Please - HUTTON posted Monday 21 January 2008. A lookup request. This post regards my search for the reference to the Will for John Hutton, the brother of my 4 x Great Grandmother Mary Hutton.

Fullard/Folliard/Fuller/Fullerton and variations, 1800s posted Friday 23 May 2008. This post regards my search for my Fullerton/Fullard/Fuller/Folliard ancestors from County Kildare, Ireland.

2010

Naas Gaol, Prisoner for Tithe Arrears 1838 posted Tuesday 11 May 2010. This post regards my search for Peter Folliard of Naas. My 3 x Great Grandfather, William Fullerton, named his eldest son (my 2 x Great Grandfather) Peter. I am researching a possible connection between my William Fullerton/Fullard and the Folliard family of Naas. I found references to Peter Folliard's 1838 tithe arrears arrest in the digitised British Parliamentary Papers and in the digitised Dublin Freeman's Journal newspaper. Unfortunately, the records for Naas Gaol now available on FindMyPast.ie only cover the years 1859-1881. 

In Part 5 I will share posts I have made elsewhere on the web (not Genforum, Rootsweb, Ancestry or Rootschat) regarding my genealogy research.

    I liked your idea on your Turning of Generations blog for The 21st Century Organized Family Historian. I hope I can join in a few of the weekly projects.
