This morning I am reviewing a presentation by Ken Nisbet, on the theme of researching WW1, that was organised by the Anglo-Scots Society (part of the MLFHS) at the Manchester Central Library recently. Whilst verifying all the links for the article I came across this great site for finding scanned volumes of the Lloyds Shipping Registers and I’ve added it to the Links Map page.
William Salthouse married Janet Braidwood in 1871 at Liverpool. The Braidwood tree is very significant for this branch of the Salthouses, I seem to remember mum saying that the red hair was a Braidwood trait – and also that her grandmother, Janet – always pronounced as Jennett – seemed to be very stern and no-nonsense but also a very likeable person. I’ve updated the tree tonight, but this is a tree that needs to be filled out with detail, much of which I already have, it’s on the ‘to do’ list.
