Looking for descendants of Arthur ROMAINE & Luisa (nee JUTTEN) of Brighton, Sussex
I am trying to trace descendants of my maternal great-grandparents, Arthur & Louisa ROMAINE (nee JUTTEN), who married in Brighton, Sussex in 1892.

Although I have succeeded in getting a great deal of information re Arthur & Louisa, their offspring are proving more elusive & I would dearly love to be able to trace their descendants. Any help that anyone could give would be most appreciated. Thank you. Jean Blease Christchurch, New Zealand

Looking for ancestors & descendants of William BULL & his son Josiah BULL
I'm looking for my half sister Janice COLLINS, though she may now be married and have a different surname. She was born October 1947/48 & possibly in Leicestershire. The daughter of Phillip A. COLLINS & Audrey COLLINS (formerly CHAMBERLAIN). My name is Brett COLLINS & I share the same Father as Janice. I was born May 12th 1953 in South Wales, UK ... but now we live in North Carolina, USA. I have a daughter born Oct 13th 1984 & I am trying to find out what happened to Janice, as my father has had no contact since 1953 & so Janice & myself have never met. I do not know if she even knows I exist & my uncle believes her mother remarried and moved to Holland, so itís possible Janice's last name may have changed when her mother re-married. If anyone is able to put me in touch with Janice it would be much appreciated. Many Thanks, Brett Collins

Looking for descendants/relatives of my Mother-in-law, Pauline Marie STUARD (nee JEPSON)
I am trying to find descendants or relatives of my mother in law, Pauline Marie JEPSON. She was born (possibly) in Yorkshire about 1940 or slightly earlier. She married Richard STUARD, an American serviceman, in Edinburgh about 1960 & they had two sons ... Richard STUARD II and Robert STUARD. Richard was born in England in 1961 and Robert was born in the USA in 1961.

Pauline lived in Pomona, CA until her death in 1981, before my daughter was born. Pauline had lost contact with her sons since around 1970. Her parents' surnames were FLANAGAN and her grandparents' names were QUIRK, probably/possibly all were from the Yorkshire area.

I would like any information about a Rosanna SALT who lived in the early to mid 1800's. The only thing I know about Rosanna SALT is a Rose tapestry completed 1850. Rosanna's maiden name may have been FITTON. Rosanna married <unknown> SALT and then <unknown> WARD, or vice-versa. Rosanna had 5 children Frederick, Emma, Sarah, Mary-Jane and Annie but I don't know whether their father was SALT or WARD.
Rosanna's daughter Annie (1869 - 1934/35) was born in Derbyshire. Annie is my maternal great-grandmother and I'm very keen to trace the female line back from her. Annie married Harry BRADLEY and they went to Portsmouth where he had a career with the water police. All their children (one of whom was my maternal grandmother) were born in Southsea, Portsmouth. Annie is buried in Portsmouth. Harry died in 1942 and is buried in Callington, Cornwall. [Annie's sister Mary-Jane married Harry's brother Charles and they went to Perth,W.Australia before Charles abandoned his family for a life in USA.] Many thanks, Claire Borys, Sydney, Australia.

I am looking for information on Charles LANCASTER, I believe he was born in Lincolnshire on November 15th 1799. Of course I realize the counties of Rutland and Nottingham are pretty close and I know that my gg grandfather was born in 1827 in Nottingham. I can not located any information on a Charles LANCASTER (1799) in this time frame. The closest I've come is in 1801 for a christening of a Charles LANCASTER. The family appears to be Congregationalist (at least that is what they were here in the states). I also am trying to find information on a Sarah CURTIS who he married in Long Bennington in January 1825. She was born in Ropsley (I believe). At least this is what the family history from Illinois has in the log. I am stuck and can not go back any further because of the lack of information on parents. After Sarah died in (I believe) 1856, the family immigrated to Prophetstown, Illinois, USA. I would really appreciate any information on my ggg grandparents. Best regards, Juli Lancaster Blenis
