Very simply, an illegitimate child whose father did not consent to being included on the certificate (from 1875, if the child was illegitimate the father had to be present at the birth registration to be named; before that the mother could name a father but it wasn't verified), or an illegitimate child whose father was 'unknown' would not have a father's ...

Death certificates in England and Wales did not include information about the parents of the deceased: The situation in Scotland is different, and information about the parents of the deceased is included (provided that it was known to the informant).

As @sempaiscuba's answer states, parentage information was not normally included on death certificates in England and Wales. There are, though, at least a couple of situations where one or both parents might be identified. The GRO has some handy little guides to the information shown on standard Birth, Marriage and Death certificates here. The guide to ...

Unfortunately it isn't definite proof that he is, but equally does not rule him out either. DNA testing will be the only way of proving 100% and everything else will be about the weight of evidence. So objectively gathering as much as you can both for and against would be the way forward. Is John named on the birth certificate as McAllister or Strachan? ...

I'm sure you've been over these questions already, but just in case ... Firstly: there's a Henry Pym, Butcher & General servant born Woolwich in the 1851 census at Sheerness working for a Henry Pilmer, Master Butcher. Class: HO107; Piece: 1628; Folio: 199; Page: 19; GSU roll: 193529 Secondly: Your image, if I read it right, seems to say the marriage to ...

It seems like the next step in utilizing the information from the will of John Francis in 1809 would be to locate the information related to this probate in the death duty registers which date from 1796 to 1903. These records should provide details about how the deceased persons effects were actually distributed and to whom. Additional information you could ...

I think the answer is probably "it depends" -- and it may not be possible to do this with the information displayed for an AncestryDNA circle alone. You may find the following resources helpful: August 2017 Update to the Shared cM Project, posted 26 August 2017 by Blaine Bettinger AncestryDNA White Paper on DNA Matching AncestryDNA White Paper on DNA ...

Looking over the question and your tree on Ancestry, one fact jumped out at me. When you look at the profile of Mary's husband, the John Juden b. 1804, you have only one record type -- the marriage banns for the 15 Jan 1825 marriage of John and Mary in Thorpe, and the various Baptism/Christening records of the children which you've noted in your question. ...

You can request birth, marriage and death certificates to the Spanish Civil Registry. There are records since 1870. In your case, you will find the Civil Registry of O Porriño under Galicia, Pontevedra. The form has some mandatory fields like Tome, Page or Date of Event that you probably don't know. You can provide an approximate value for the Date and "...

Also take a look at the Lancashire OPC website, click on Registers in the menu and then W and scroll down for Wigan all the churches and the full transcriptions of the Parish Registers are there for the period you are interested in.

Let's examine the certificate which we already have in hand and see what we can learn from it. You may want to download the GRO's handy Guide to Marriage Certificates. When looking at the information on any record, don't just take the information at face value. Look at what you have, and think about the other research questions that lead from this ...

The best test to prove or disprove parentage is a standard autosomal test at any of the major DNA testing companies that provide you with your matches. A child gets one chromosome of every pair from each parent and you will therefore match with your parent completely on every chromosome. All testing companies will identify this correctly as a parent/child ...

I'm not sure this is an answer, but it's too long for a comment, and it may be helpful in suggesting some ideas for research. Bethel College is now Bethel University, and has moved from its founding location in McLemoresville, Carroll County, Tennessee, to McKenzie, Tennessee, which is at the point where Carroll, Henry, and Weakley Counties meet. According ...

On Ancestry.com the Smith Family Tree (Phil & Iain) lists Doris' parents as being: John Reardon (1870-1937); and Eliza Ellen Weaver (1881-1944) That tree does not have a 1911 Census Record linked to it. Viewing her birth certificate will be the most direct way to seek confirmation. They appear not to have viewed the certificate, but they recorded the ...

If your father was a close relative of your half sibling’s father, that would explain what you are seeing. If, for example, your father was a brother of your half-sibling's father, then you share your entire family tree, from grandparents on back with your half-sibling. If your father was, say, your half-sibling's uncle, then you would share only half of ...

There are 3 possibilities: You're reading things wrong. In this case, we need a lot more information to be able to help you sort it out. This is just your bad luck. You belong to an endogamous group (Jewish, colonial American, Mennonite, Hawaiian, etc) where it's common to match someone on multiple lines. If this is the case, then you would match a lot of ...

Have you tried searching Gesher Galicia? Its free All Galicia Database has hundreds of thousands of records, including thousands of records from Lviv: http://search.geshergalicia.org Was Ignacy's mother Fajga Pfeffer also born in Lviv? If so, it looks like her 1850 birth record is included in the database. And there are several people named "Jakob Samuel" ...

I am going to complete @gparis answer. For getting the accessing the information from the spanish register: go to this website and request it: https://sede.mjusticia.gob.es/cs/Satellite/Sede/es/tramites However the register is only allowing you going in the "up direction", given a person you can know the fathers, not the children, there are some exceptions ...

William died and Martha continued to live with her daughter in law and her children....
