Re: Searching family history
Glad to see you took my advice to ask on my Forum Steve. My mothers maiden name was Rodger, but we always said Rodgers.Some of the family insisted it was Rodger. A lady in California came on the board a few years ago called Eileen Rodger McKoy looking for an old friend from school so I contacted her. I suspected Rodger was her maiden name and i was right. It turned out her grandfather was from Wemyss in Fife and a brother of my Great Grandfather who came down to live in Hebburn.
On the 1910 Hebburn Rates list, the enumerator had him down as James Rogers. This shows people relied on enumerators to spell names correctly.
I told you I knew Eddie Hallowell from 1950s Windermere Cres, Hebburn. It would be nice to contact him as his hobby was taking photographs, so he might have some of old Hebburn.
