My husband's great-grandfather migrated to Australia from Armagh in Ireland. His name was Aexander Bradford but I cannot find any information about him in Ireland. Would love to learn something prior to his coming here.

Are there any by the name of Strandgard living in America whose father was Jens from Copenhagen? I believe there were maybe 2 children of his living there, perhaps New York as he went there. He also went to Canada and became a Canadian citizen. Can anybody out there help me?

I have been searching well over 8 years for Samuel Brooks, born estimate 1860 in Texas. He lived in Edna Texas. His father was George Brooks, born in Louisiana. There were so many Samuel Brooks, born 1817 who is Davis Brooks father. I am trying to find connections to Davis Brooks, George S. Gayle....it's a headache, but I will continue. My Samuel Brooks was married to Charlotte Brooks, having about 13 children.

I am looking for the immigration and birth records of George Liszt, aka George List (once in the US). He was born in Frankfurt, Germany in Nov 1857 and immigrated to the US in 1880. He became a naturalized citizen in 20 Oct 1886 in Peoria, IL. He died in Peoria, IL in 1906 and is buried at the Springdale Cemetery in Peoria, IL. I am also trying to locate the correct spelling of his wife Elizabeth "Moira/Muir?" born Jun 1867 in Woodford, IL (1900 census). Any clues to break through these walls would be appreciated! This is my first time writing. Hope I gave sufficient information and you can assist.

Family Search is incredible! Thanks for all you do. I am always astonished at the help your researchers provide, and especially that someone is working on my husband's tree that has hooked me up to ancestors dating back to royalty, Norsemen and 1 AD!! But sadly, my full-blooded Naples, Italy-area ancestry is a dead end once my search hits Italy in the late 1800s. Data around Caserta,Compania is almost nil, yet it was an area of much transition and fighting and a melting pot of civilizations way back. Also, there were just few families with lots of kids that populated towns and interconnected. Will you soon have more records from this historic/ancient southern region?

I am trying to get the marriage certificate of my grandparents (Samuel George Freeman and Elsie Winn) who were married in Calcutta, Bengal, India on 29 December 1919. FHL number 463385. No one seems to be able to assist me in getting the original. Any ideas, please?

I assume you just want to see the original complete marriage record? If so, you can look at it through the catalog. Go into "Search at the top of the page and get the drop down menu. Choose catalog. Go to Search film/fiche number. Type in 463385. Click on Parish register transcripts from the Presidency of Bengal. Scroll down until you come to Bapts, mars. burs. v. 440-441, Oct-Dece 1919. Click on the camera and the images will come up. Unfortunately the index doesn't give an image number for you will have to look through them to find your marriage. If you have any other problems, let me know

I am trying to learn more my James Davidson, born in/near Seagahan, County Armagh, Ireland about 1797. Most of what I have read about his family came from the New York Emigrant Savings Bank, acct. #6124 (under James Davison); their immigration record; and the 1870 and 1880 censuses. I am not certain the spelling of his wife's maiden name. I have seen it only once: Sarah McCUMISKY, in the bank text books. His mother was Grace Crozier. His children were Henry (my great grandfather), Sarah, Grace, and maybe Jane, who immigrated to the US in 1853. Jno, James and Hugh migrated to Scotland. James died in 1874 in Paterson, New Jersey. His daughter Sarah married Joseph H. Townsend and lived in Paterson, NJ. Henry moved to Jasper County, Missouri dying there in 1889. Henry married Sarah Nelmes and then Harriet Rupert in Jasper County, MO. Henry and Sarah raised Charles, Minnie, Henry, William, Elizabeth, and my grandmoth Maude Hallie Davidon (born 1889). I have found Hugh Davidson in some Scottish censuses. I would appreciate help with my Irish ancestors. Thank you.

My Danish records are complete apart from one named Hansine Wilhelmine Hansen who was the sister of my great-grandmother. Does anyone out there have any connection with Hansine? My greatgrandmother was Laura Frederikke Hansen who migrated to Australia. Cheers.

I'm looking for historical (1600-1800) records for the Schweigen-Rechtenbach area of what is now Germany but may have been France during the period records I'm interested in. The family name at the time was probably Cler but was changed to Klaer in the early 1800's
