    The Liverpool Records Office is featured in this week's 'Who Do You Think You Are' with Griff Rhys Jones. I noticed David Stoker, who runs the LRO in the trailer last night.

    Default Family History

    Hi, I don't know if anyone can help. My grandfather Dudley Delamere Wright always said he was born in a pub, so I ordered his birth certificate which does state that his father George Wright was a public house manager.

    My grandfather was born in 1 Brunel Street South Everton in 1913, I can't find any info about the street and it doesn't help that I don't know the name of the pub, my grandfather did say it had been demolished.

    If anyone can help you will make me very happy because I have been trying for ages.

    Thanks
    Wendy

    Hiya Wendy
    Brunel Street was off Whitefield Rd & in 1911 the occupier of no.1 Brunel St was Miss Claudina King -Victualler but it doesn't mention what the pubs name was
    There is a Brunel pub there today but that is a modern building
    If you can't dazzle them with brilliance,baffle them with bull

    Default Just an update

    Hi everyone

    I went to Liverpool Central Library on Saturday and found a picture of the Reservoir Hotel. I also found my Great Grandfather listed in the Gores Directory from 1915 to 1920 but had to stop there because I run out of time.

    But at least I have proof now that my family once had the pub.

    Couldn't find a street map with Brunel St listed though, I will have to go back and have another look.

    Has anyone heard of the Delamere School of Dancing because my Grandfather's sister had a dance school in the Crane Hall? Hylda D Wright died in 1971 aged 64.

    Default Japha look up

    hello Gnomie

    many thanks for this offer. I am trying to find out where Wiiliam Japha is buried. He died in 1891 (June I think). I believe he was living in Everton at the time (47 Village street?)

    Never been sure how to look up burial places

    many thanks for your help

    Hi Denis
    If you phone Liverpool Direct they take calls on behalf of cemertries,
    if you give them his Full name & date of death they may be able to locate
    where he is , they'll ask what relation if any you are & also require your e mail .

    Good luck
    Karen

    Hi Jodie

    This is their site http://www.liverpool.gov.uk/Leisure_...tage/index.asp

    It has details of records held.

    Just ask for help as somebody may look for you.

    There is a genealogy section on this forum

    Good Luck

    Hello Jo.

    If you're in Liverpool. Join the records office search room with two utilities bills then ask for the street photos index and enjoy.......

    Maybe we could talk about what you can look through. i was put onto the workhouse book records. unbelievable book with incredible info. and yes my 2 ancestors where there. but being related to me they absconded after 2 days. they where aged 7 and 9. what a different world we live in.

    Default birth look up

    hi, if you still go to the record office could you poss look for a birth for me, i have found a christening for this person, but i need the actual birth, he was christened in st peters april 1819, i should think he was in that parish when born, he is john sephton (sefton) born 1819 liverpool. i only know his father was edward sephton (stonemason) i travelled up to liverpool record office some time ago and just did not have time to look for it with everything else i needed, i would much appreciate it, c sephton.

    Don't know where to put this Kev?The Independent news paper has unearthed a load of ww1 photosof british soldiers on glass plates.
    they are unable to ID them as there is nothing writen about them so they are to be put on line in the hope that members of the publice
    if theyare recognised will give them a name.it is thought that the photos where taken shortly befor the battle of the somme 1916.
    Any way look on there online mag.www.independent.co.uk/unknownsoldiers.to offer info there is a blog set up at http://www.lost-photos.livejurnal.com.
    have a look folks.edwardo.
