G'day noggin (love the name) My problem is I have a few of them but in my excitement to get them on my tree, I didn't check siblings properly and I think I've added people who either don't belong or aren't where they should be. Anyway, if you can be of any help I'd be absolutely dellighted.

Thank you so much for replying - I really didn't expect it to happen
How do u DO that? Thank you so much for looking. I can start using what you've found and see if I can go further with it. Can I ask you a question though. I've built my tree through my heritage but I can't find information as you just did. I'm thinking of changing to ancestry. Do you have any experience with them?
G'day Lynzzss. My family has a copy of the birth certificate of William Salmon born 1866 (my ggrandfather) and the details of the parents are Joseph Salmon and Mary Ann Salmon nee Olley. I think the key to the puzzle is the fact that Mary Ann was illiterate. She signed the document with a X. Therefore could it be that Marian Holly is actually Mary Ann Olley? The birth occurred in Felsted, in the registrar district of Dunmore, sub district Stebbing, Essex. I have a digital photo of the certificate but need to get the original scanned. I am very keen to find and confirm Joseph's father. From other sources it is suggested that Joseph's father is Thomas Salmon born 1777. Have you any further information on this? Best regards, David Salmon.
G'day David. Unfortunately I don't but haven't been doing anything on my tree much this year - looking after my mum who has unfortunately gone a few months now. I don't have the heart for it at the moment but definitely will get back to it. I'm not at all sure I have my tree correct as far as they're concerned but you're more than welcome to get on it through my heritage. Your theory sounds good to me regarding Mary Ann though. Thinking about changing over to ancestry - people seem to get more information from there but the idea of transferring 800 odd people is a bit daunting at the moment also. Love to keep in touch and I'll pass this on to cousins as well - see if they have anything. Where are you in the world?
In Melbourne - world's most liveable city!!!! Clearly you know a lot about research - thank you for your suggestions - I'll definitely check them out. Thanks too for the suggestion about the gedcom - that's my idea of transferring data - minutes rather than weeks of work. Thank you very much. If it's still day wherever you are then have a great one. Regards,Lyn
G'day Lynzzs. Just to let you know that I have a copy of the marriage of Joseph Salmon and Mary Ann Holly (really supposed to be Olley). It gives his father's name as Thomas Salmon, a labourer. It also states that Joseph residing in Felsted at the time of the marriage
That is absolutely fantastic - congratulations. How do u feel when u find something like that? It must be like finding gold. Wouldn't u love to have access to him for just one hour so u could ask all the questions still running around in your head? Thanks for helping with my family - I really appreciate it. Happy Xmas whatever you're doing and wherever you are. Regards. Lyn
