Comment on How to Download a GEDCOM File from Ancestry by Penny http://www.gouldgenealogy.com/2015/04/how-to-download-a-gedcom-file-from-ancestry/#comment-912424 Mon, 23 May 2016 07:33:14 +0000 http://www.gouldgenealogy.com/?p=17749#comment-912424 Everything you said is great until you get to an IPAD. There is no right click. If you press the ged download
Button long enough you do get an option box. This option box doesn’t have any reference to save or
Save As in it. I wish that I didn’t use IPAD with Ancestry. All I get is a text file. Any other ideas on how to get
My Ancestry file downloaded? I don’t have a laptop or desktop computer.

Comment on UK Prison Hulk Records 1802-1849 now online by Valda Talbot http://www.gouldgenealogy.com/2010/09/uk-prison-hulk-records-1802-1849-now-online/#comment-912204 Mon, 23 May 2016 02:57:24 +0000 http://www.gouldgenealogy.com/?p=1946#comment-912204 Hi Susan,
You may have to go to the British Prison Records to find which hulk your ancestor was taken to.

England & Wales, Crime, Prisons & Punishment, 1770-1935 (NA London)
HO 13 Source: Correspondence & Warrants (they essentially record when and to where the prisoner is taken from which jail and to which hulk and when).

If you have access to Findmypast. you will find these correspondences under
Category: Institutions & Organisations
Sub-category: Prison Registers GB

Hope this helps

Seriously?

What I know is my mother came out here from Canada to study in NSW she was or Baptist religion and was aged 25 I also know my father was Scottish, but don’t know his name. I would love to find my Mother and any siblings and to find it would mean a lot to me and bit of validation too.

Thanks for taking the time to read this and anyone that could help.

I was saddened to become aware of your losses ( some time ago). I have a copy of a book put together by Robert Tomlinson and family. A copy was also submitted to the National Library when published in the 90s. Some information about the Thomson and other families are included. I will try to get you a copy, if you don’t already have one. Regards, Jenelle Howard (nee Thomson).
