  1. Hi Bill, I have not been back to the Museum as my husband had a hospital appointment on Thursday and that is the day that my Sister in Law is available to come with me. I will let you know if I uncover anything. Regards Dorothy
  2. Hi Bill Sorry to hear that you and your wife have health issues I know what this is like as my husband had major surgery last year and he has other issues. It does not seem fair when you have worked all your life and when you should be enjoying life health issues rear their head, it is a true saying "it is no fun getting old". Fortunately I am in excellent health. I take after my Mother who lived until she was 90 and she used to say "I would be champion if it is was not for my knees" but they did not keep her in she used to be out and about every day. I have not replied until today as I have been volunteering at the World Cup Cricket at the Fanzone in Durham for 2 days and I volunteer every Sunday at Tanfield Railway so have just picked up my laptop. I did go to the coffee morning at Bedlington unfortunately, the lady was unable to help me but I had a good couple of hours they were all lovely people, myself and my sister in law are going to go back as she has some blankets that her mother made and she is going to donate them to their collection. We then went to Woodhorn Museum and that was very interesting, I got the coroner's report on the death of my grandmother who was found dead in the River Wansbeck in Morpeth in 1916. My ticket lasts for one year so I am going to go on a regular basis to go through the records. Unfortunately I did not have anything on me with my photo or address so I could not look at original documents but I will make sure that I have my driving licence with me when we go again. Best Wishes to you and your wife on hopefully a speedy recovery. Regards Dorothy
  3. Hi Bill What time does it open and close Thanks Dorothy
  4. Thank you Bill, I will pay a visit on Thursday and have a chat with her she sounds a very interesting lady Regards Dorothy
  5. Thank you, I will look into that, the problem is that Hall is a common name and it is easy to get off track.
  6. Thanks Alan that is a much clearer image. A few years ago on my way to the library at Morpeth I made a detour to see if my Grandfather's bungalow was still there (which it is) and also drove down Sheepwash Bank to see the playground but never knew that my family lived just up the road. I find it very interesting doing my family tree. The problem is when my Mother was born her Mother died when she was 7 months old and my Mother was brought to Winlaton to live so she knew nothing of her family. I would think that her Grandmother looked after her until her death and then this woman took her but my Mother knew nothing of the circumstances. Such a pity but I am hoping that I can solve the puzzle. Once again thank you.
  7. Oops you are right should have looked at the title, I think I need to go to Spec Savers. Thank you for your e-mail.
  8. That is great, my grandfather lived in Scotland Gate, Choppington and when I was young we used to go and see him and he used to take us to a play area at the bottom of Sheepwash Bank as I was born and brought up in Blaydon but I am a member of Ancestry so trying to get as much information as I can. Thank you very much for the information you have given me very much appreciated.
  9. Sawmill Row is what is listed on the spreadsheet of the 1901 Census. They lived in No. 194
  10. Does anyone have any information on Sawmill Row, Bedlington? My Great Grandmother and Grandfather lived there in 1901
