I agree with the comments that it more likely reads "C. E. Markby". A good possibility would be the Rev. Cecil Edward Campbell Markby. He was recorded as "Clerk of Holy Orders" in Dorchester, Dorset on the 1939 Register, a short way from Salisbury (see RG 101/6918C, no 187): Local newspapers seem to confirm this is the right man. For ...

For my one-place study of a parish in the East Midlands, I transcribed all entries in the 1939 Register. I then individually cross-referenced the birth date of each entry with a secondary source (either civil registration or parish record). This enabled me to assess how frequently the birth date given on the 1939 Register matched with the secondary source. ...

There might be ED maps at The National Archives, but so far, I haven't been able to determine a good archive reference for them. Searching on Discovery, the catalog of The National Archives, for the keywords "RG 101" and "maps" brought me to this page describing Records of the General Register Office, Government Social Survey Department, ...

It's simply a way of distinguising households/institutions. According to the National Archives Information is arranged by: enumeration district – each enumeration district has a unique four- or five-letter code, and large enumeration districts may comprise more than one book household or institution – each household or institution is ...

The difficulty here is that your veteran was born in 1939, which puts you smack up against the 20th-century "privacy hole" restricting access to records. Because of the time frame, his service records are probably NOT archival; it's also unfortunate that he served in the Air Force (for more, see below.) Do you need an official certificate, or are you ...

All that you can be certain of is that she changed her surname to Weeks and notified the change which was recorded on that date. She may or may not have divorced Frederick, she could just have notified a name change for a multitude of reasons not just divorce. For example: Did she marry a man with the surname of Weeks? If so the divorce could have happened ...

In the Lost Cousins newsletter dated 1st March 2016, Peter Calver posted his own entry from the NHS Central Register, from one of the later registers. In the newsletter, he shows that the right-hand side has a jumble of codes which he interprets as a list of the places he has lived and some dates. He notes that the format of the register that holds his ...

On the night of Saturday 19 December 1942, there was a fire at a store in Hayes, Middlesex. The store, the responsibility of the Office of Works, contained a large amount of furniture but in addition it contained the census records for England & Wales for 1931, that is the whole of the schedules, enumeration books and plans. They were all ...

CR283 is the form used for a change of name on marriage. A change of name for any other reason should be CR230. So this appears to be at variance with family information, although there is always the possibility that someone used the wrong form, or the NHS Central Register clerk made a clerical error.

As previously mentioned all the schedules were lost, but if you want to learn more about the census and the reports that were generated from the data before the schedules were lost, here are some resources.

The omitted columns are #11 and #12. On FMP's Original Forms page, the Enumerator's Instructions sheet states: Column 11 - The enumerator may be instructed not to transcribe the schedule entries as to "Membership of Naval, Military or Airforce Reserves, etc., or Civil Defence Services, etc." from column G of the schedule [...]. But if he is instructed to ...

The 1939 Register, much like the decennial censuses before it, was actually compiled from household schedules. The enumerator dropped off the schedule to each house a few days before National Registration Day (29 Sep 1939). The format of the schedule looked like this: Source: Histpop.org Each schedule in each enumeration district was assigned a unique ...

Your question is too broad to be answered entirely satisfactory here. To determine the whereabouts of a family is the goal of research that consists of many steps. City directories of Hamburg until 1966 have been digitized by Hamburg university library. You’ll find an overview at GenWiki. There is no index, but looking up people should be easy. You’ll find ...

Peter Calver's special edition of his Lost Cousins newsletter shows a screen grab that he took from a FindMyPast promotional video - see the heading "What aren't we seeing?" in the linked newsletter (given that the copyright will belong to either FMP or PC, I am not including the image itself here). Though fuzzy (possibly deliberately for confidentiality ...

You left out the relevant information, so you may have already tried these techniques: Have you used a variety of search settings - name spellings and variations, date ranges, places? Have you used more than one set of indexes and search forms (ancestry, familysearch; others include myheritage, mocavo)? Have you found hunted through the enumeration district(...

You could try the Venezuela Civil Registration, 1873-2003 registers available on FamilySearch.org. They contain Births, marriages, deaths, indexes and other records created by civil registration offices in Venezuela. If that doesn't work then definitely contact the local city hall. According to the US Embassy in caracas: The Civil Code states that a ...

Wills of people who have died should be at the district court (Amtsgericht), which serves as a Nachlassgericht here. Which court depends on the exact place of living (district). You might use the collection of Berlin directories by the Zentral- und Landesbibliothek Berlin to learn where your grandfather lived. The death certificate should also help. If it ...

The 1946 Electoral Register for 35 Belton Rd, Willesdon, shows the following individuals: Burt, Eva Burt, William C. Goodman, Florence M. Weston, Percy E. Florence and various other family members were at this address through the 1960s; it is worth checking every year's electoral roll. This suggests that the daughter who was the informant was Florence May ...

According to the FamilySearch wiki page for Atchison County, Kansas, the Atchison Magistrate Court has probate records, starting 1855.

If I am correct, I think that this is family of Cowin as required by you living at 137 Market Street, Hoylake on the 1911 Census. However the surname is misread and mis-transcribed as Crown. Walter Cowell Cowin or as it is correctly listed on Ancestry listed as Walter Cowell Crown. Walter Cowell Coin was born in Chester in 1910 and is Seven months old on the ...

I could not locate one specific Mahmoud Chahine, but honestly did not go over all records. If you did not give a try yet at FamilySearch, do it, there are several records for Chahine from Lebanon arriving at Sao Paulo. I tried specifying parents name using the data you provide but again was not successful. I would not rely in filtering by parents in an ...

"Postnatal Depression" as you call it is probably "Postpartum Depression", the term we now use. It happens shortly after and can continue for a long time after giving birth. The severity can range from mild to extreme as with any other mental health diagnoses. Postpartum Depression, sadly, still has a stigma attached to it as a new mother should be ecstatic ...
