Margaret (my GG Grandmother)
I would be most appreciative of any information

|WHITECHESTER||Information on Whitechester surname linked to Scotland and Lithuania||I have found information about the Whitechester name in Scotland connected to the Scott clan and the name Buccleigh. In a Pennsylvania death record in 1935 for Anthony Whitechester, my grandfather, his father, Thomas Whitechester, is listed as an immigrant from Lithuania. Thomas and Agnes Whitechester's four children were born in Pennsylvania in the USA according to their marriage licenses. There is a reference in Wikipedia to some land in Lithuania owned by the Buccleighs that they lost when Russia took over Lithuania. Does anyone have any information about the Whitechester name in Scotland or Lithuania? I haven't been able to find information prior to 1920 on Ancestry and Google about that last name. Thank you.||28/11/2016||6700|
|BELLERBY COATES||Memory of a friend with Alzheimer's||A friend with Alzheimer's (Ray) suddenly remembered the name of the father of a friend from school. I was wishing to help his memory and giving him something to tie his memories with. The father was Harry Bellarby Coates and he was the director (?) of the Grimsby hospital immediately prior to, and during, WW2. They lived in a big house in Grimsby. According to the London Gazette he received a gong for services to the Civil Defence in (or around) 1945.||27/11/2016||6698|

|CALVERT||Terracotta gravestones||Thanks for the useful photo supplied of a Torin grave.He was a relative of Mary Seton Watts who started the Compton Pottery. My main research is into the location of terracotta gravestones made near Guildford by Compton Pottery 1900-1950. They are either brick colour or grey, usually Celtic designs or crosses and usually not very large. Sometimes just a moulded kerb with names inscribed. Lettering is cut into the terracotta before firing or is sometimes left standing with a cut-away background. Most are in a 20 mile radius of Guildford but they were supplied in sections by rail and individual examples turn up throughout UK. I could send sample pictures and would be so grateful for a photo from anyone who comes across one in their researches. ||03/09/2016||6341|

|DORNAN||Pumpherston Oil Tank Disaster||An extremely useful and user-friendly site.
Iam researching a branch of the Thomson family in the Scorttisg Borders. My earliest confirmed dates are the 1790s with Gideon Thomson in Eddleston, marrying firdt Elizabeth Dickson, who presumably died in childbirth, and later Margaret Hope with whom he had four sons and a daughter, Margaret. She married into the Wilkie family and in the 1930s a Wilkie was the second husnaband of Mary Dornan, marrying by declaration in Edinburgh, hence my interest in the Dornans. The Wilkie, a chartered surveyor died 1959sh, in Dumfries. I can find no subsequent ecord of Mary's death in Scotland. I would appreciate any help in this matter.
|HART||Location help please||Thank you for the recent requested image, however it turns out not to be the the relative I am searching for.

I have the birth and death certificate but desperatley want to find her final resting place.
If anybody has any information or can suggest where to start looking I would really appreciate it.
Many many thanks

|HESTER & WORLEY||Date correction||Could I ask you to make a correction to the estimated dates (given in red) that accompany the image of the gravestone of one of my ancestors?
This concerns Elizabeth Hester: grave number 54312, image no. 226. Her estimated date of birth (in red) is given as 1812, but should in fact be 1842. I'm sure the reason for this is interpreting her age at death on the gravestone as 89, whereas it actually reads 59.
I am quite sure about this, especially as a date of birth of 1812 would have meant that her youngest child would have been born when she was 66 years old (rather than 36)!!||01/08/2016||6202|
|CALVETTI||Brompton Cemetery & St Pancras Cemetery||Hello, I would love if someone would be able to send me a picture of the gravestone for Giovanni Calvetti who is buried in Brompton Cemetery (register lists M 145... not sure if that is the number of the plot). I would also be interested in a photo of Romeo Calvetti's gravestone. He is buried in St Pancras Cemetery. His plot number is 315.9.V. Thanks!||28/07/2016||6178|

|SAMUEL WIGHTMAN SMYTHE||Photos from earlier requests not transferred to the 2014 version||Some years ago, I requested and received some photos from a family vault in Aldeburg, UK, St. Peter and St. Paul graveyard. Since this has been transferred to Ancestry.com, a search there links to those burials, but further search doesn not include any of them. Is the database not finished, or have these graves been lost in the system? I know they exist, as I downloaded them into my old computer.
Thanks for your help.||27/07/2016||6173|
|RUDKIN||Charles Iliffe Rudkin||Many Thanks for the photo link. Unfortunately the subject is a little out of focus - if you have another image and could send it would be great.
I think the service you offer really does help researchers link a few reference numbers with an actual person. I am sure that for some researchers overseas this is invaluable to provide a tangible link.
Many thanks for the service, which I will look to use again. Shame about the image though.||23/06/2016||5974|
|THOMPSON||Did Elizabeth died before she married???||Firstly, many thanks for the photo Charles. The information on it is however curious. The Henry data fits my ancestor exactly, as does his first wife Mary Jane (preferred to be mostly known as just Jane). Problem is with second wife Elizabeth. The headstone gives her death as 7 Oct 1891 but the only marriage registration I can find, anywhere, between a fitting Henry and an Elizabeth (maiden name unknown) was in Dec quarter 1891 ref Stockton 10a 69. Any ideas anyone??||23/06/2016||5977|

|NOTLEY||EMILY & RICHARD NOTLEY - Gravestones||I've been researching my ancestors in England. My aunt went over there in the 1960's and located the stones and wrote down what she saw. The marker I'm researching is for Emily Notley, my great grandfather's sister. The photo your organization sent me only shows one side of the marker According to my aunt, there is more information on the other side/s of the stone. One documents that Emily's son was killed in WWI and where he was buried. Also, Emily's daughter Mabel Emily; it documents that she was a Sister of a religious order of St. Mary's Baldslow. I would appreciate, if anyone has, or could obtain these photos for me for documentation in my ancestry research. I was thrilled to find this site and pictures.
