Does anybody know how to trace references to family members in the Music Hall business from 1901 onwards?
I have 2 members of my family who were both music hall atristes and agents (depending on the year). They were both named FREDERICK FELLOWS, but on the 1901 census they were living at 67 Rokeby St (Everton) and going by the name POOLE.
I'm wondering if this was a stage name, but by 1908 they were back to Fellows on records. They then moved to 33 Rupert Hill by 1911.
There is one refernce to Fred Snr being a comedian, and family tales of dog performing. I'm all googled out and still hitting a brick wall.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
l was wondering if next time you visit the records office if you have access to the Brownlow Hill Workhouse Records could you do a look up for me please.
Peter Logan born 3/5/1910 father John logan mother Mary Catherine Logan formerly Maguire.
When I first started doing my family history (and I must admit my wife's family are much more interesting than mine) I joined a number of family history societies, but found I was buying fiches and CDs just to find one entry, and the family then moved on to another area. Its a pity there's no sort of Federal membership, so you can join one society (probably your local one so you can go to meetings) and then have access to all the others. If it was reciprocal it shouldn't cost that much more.
I agree with what your saying, I started my family history over 10 years ago and spent 100's joining Ancestry and Findmypast etc.
Most of the stuff I actually found is freely available nowadays through FreeBMD and local Church records online etc.
It can cost a fair bit.
They dont tell you on the subscription sites that unless you know what your doing then your wasting your time.
The Merseyside Genealogy and History forum is a good place to join if your just starting out. Good tips on there for research. Get to know a little before you subscribe.
And take the Free trials.

I owe what I know about my family history to a nice bloke not a million miles away from here
Thanks again mate.
My thanks to the above poster's! I too spent a fair amount on 'Find My Past.' and wasted most of it on 'searches'! just for the names and districts. Only one certain result achieved!
I had been looking for details of my Great Grandparents marriage details for years and years, and I was convinced because I couldn't find them that they must've been living 'over the brush'.
I discovered a brand new Liverpool site last week detailing Roman Catholic Marriages in Liverpool, and half heartedly typed there names in.
Boy I was gobsmacked when there details popped up!
I guess they only cared about the Catholic marriage, because they never went the CofE service (as all Catholics at the time had to do to make there marriage 'legal' in England), and thats why they are missing from official records.
A bit OT, what form of records do LRO use /
is it microfiche, 35mm film, 16mm film or what.
I know they have the record books, having spent hours looking at them
The Central Library will be closed for a couple of years: does this mean the Records Office will be inaccessible during that time, and if so, is there any alternative provided?
They are moving it to another place so access will still be available, don't know where... yet...
Started the Old Swan Website:
Microfilm/fishe being moved next door to the Museum.
Search room photos being moved to a unit at Wellington Employment Park, Sandhills Lane. 24 hours notice of visit required.
hi, i could use your help. I'm trying to find out if 38 grey road,liverpool, was a private residence or other. If private, who were the residents in 1967-68.
thanks for your help.
Gnomie - Thanks very much for the link I have been on & posted some details fingers crossed someone can help. Any tips on find out more on the family tree very much appreciated. I have been lucky enough to have quite a few birth/death & Marriage certs to help but still hard going & a bit stuck now not really knowing how to look further back in time !
Thanks again x
(your likely to hear from me in the future in my hours of dispair !!)
I am looking for the marriage of George Phillips b: 1866 Swansea, Wales, to Elizabeth Webster b:1876 Salford area, according to the 1911 census they had been married for 14 years which puts it at about 1897.
I have checked all the online BMD's but still have not been able to find them. Our family knows very little. Their first two children were born in the Salford area, they then moved to Bridgewater street Liverpool (1911 Census) then by 1915 they were living at 47 Kitchen street liverpool. We do not know the names of either George or Elizabeths parents, thus why we need the marriage cert.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
Christ Church - 1831-1963 [deposited registers].
St. Philip - 1813-1935
St. Stephen - 1794-1956
Sacred Trinity - 1709- 1887
All are held at Manchester Archives and Local Studies, Central Library, St Peter's Square, Manchester.
If you've been looking online using only IGI [LDS] the latest record for any of the churches listed here is 1865.
Manchester library should have the target years you're looking for.
I hope that helps?

Hi there to all,
I have be tracing my family tree, and I was wondering if I could see Liverpool's 1911 census?
I belong to Ancestry's.com & UK, and I have found some factors of my family's. But still need further help with this wonderful information!!
If anyone knows any information I would be so pleased to hear from you.
Her mother was called Mary Campbell, her husband Edward Whittaker. I found info 1901 census they lived at 1 Bidden St Liverpool
My mother name maiden name was Whittaker Elizabeth B: 19 Oct 1919. During the war:- I think my mum use to work in Crawford s & Tate and (Lynes) sugar factory, worked in an armory doing the bullets etc.
Some of my Mum's sister's and brother's can not recall all there names:- Mary use to work at St Johns Market and I think her married name was Smithwick I think she had 4 children one daughter called Marie and Richard.
Alfie, Johnny?, Sarah who died young?, Rosa worked at the Odean, Peggy
My father name was Alan Guthrie Lawson B: 20 July 1919 in Birkenhead. They got married in 1942. I am unable to recall what my father did during the war days! They had four children:
Alan B 1945 - Richard B 1947 - Margaret (Me) B 1948 - Sandra B 1951
They had a big family and which I do not have all the facts yet. But I am trying to trace my Peggy Born in Liverpool, and William Radcliffe Born in Isle Of Man, and they lived there too. He worked on the Trams in Laxey, and I think Peggy worked in the shop at the Lacey wheel.
His mother and father was called Robert Lawson and his wife my gran Margaret Elizabeth Jarman M: 1918. They only had one Son. My husband died young? she was a widower for a long time. She use to work at the Liver building doing the Taxes?
I look forward in hearing from you with any news you may have

Speaking of office record look up, was great to recall all the photos, activities and all the programs we have. But believe sometime hurting to my part because you still remember the memories and when you boss depressed with your work. But yeahh, it's really funny. So what i did i put that in my desktop all the office record that i have and thank to this site, that my file have been protected. www.paretologic.com.
I am new to the site being introduced to it via a book by Mike Royden (Tracing your Liverpool Ancesters). I have been researching my family tree using Ancestry & Find my Past for about a year now and have uncovered quite a lot of information about the family as well as finding distant relatives in Australia and Canada as well as links with Belgium which is why I write.
I saw that you offered to look up records at the records office in Liverpool - I am sorry I can't return the favour as I now live in Norfolk having moved here over 20 years ago from Liverpool, and my visits "home" now are few. So I understand if you cant help me but just in case...
We have the name Vanduyfhuys in our family a most unusual name I feel for Liverpool - anyway here is what I think we now know:
George Charles Vanduyfhuys born 1830 (we think in Belgium) married a Frances Watson Wilson 4 Sept 1853 occupation given as Mariner. I have a copy of the marriage certificate that confirms these details. George then dies (we think) as I find a record of his death in the Toxteth Park Cemetery age 27 years, records show that he was a ships steward and he died in the Southern hospital. Would be great if this could be confirmed and also any other information relating to his death next of kin, cause ofd death etc.. It would appear that 2 children were born George Charles 1854 (however spelling of surname is Vanduyphays) and a another boy Charles Vanduyfhuys in 1857 - there is also a death entry in 1857 for a Charles Vanduyfhuys. Again any information regarding death details would be great.
After the fathers death things are a little vaugue - I have what I think are 2 entries for Frances - however with the strange spelling of her name I feel it has been spelt in so many ways on the 1861 census I do find her with her lst son in Toxteth but name is Van Davis, I then find her again in Toxteth with son and this time name is Van Davies. After that I can find no records of either Frances or her son and I assume she may have remarried or died. As for her son I think he must have adopted the name Davis and and is therefore quite impossible to trace. The link in the family also includes a daughter of Frances who married into what I think was a prominent family the Barton Redfern's - Sailmakers. Emma Elizabeth states her name as Vandives on her marriage certificare and the name of her father links with above. However Emma always stated she was born in 1850 so this would have been prior to her mothers marriage. I assumed therefore she was maybe not the daughter of who she thinks was her father. For the record I can find no trace of a Emma Elizabeth Vanduyfhuys on record so the search for that one goes on....
I do hope if you have time you will be able to fill some of the gaps - please let me know if you need any further information. Many thanks.
Georges death certificate may hold some clues as to who was present. Surname spelling differentials come up all the time on census records as names could be written down as they were heard if the person was not literate and had to verbally tell the recorder.
Yes came across the name spelling quite a lot as we have a few "strange" names to deal with in the family but it does make things more interesting. Hoping that inforamtion from the death cert will help me move over the brick wall. Thanks for reply.
Spent another 3 hours this morning in the temporary archives building of the LRO getting another 316 photos from largely unseen files, some of which I will post up. They were mainly for people who have asked me via my site on email and on other forums. They include interior shots of the Customs House air raid damage as well as churches and street scenes.

I now have a complete list of the hundreds of street files available to view at the LRO so if anyone is after a particular street just let me know but I do have my next two visits boxes off already so it'll be some time in April for any new batch.
