Default Take one 4xg-Grandparent week 3 - 19 - 25 Aug 2011

This is our new weekly challenge to see how much information you can find out about each of your 4xg-grandparents. Because there are so many brick walls at this stage, we are expecting that you will have quite a few missing 4xg-grandparents, and that the ones you do post up will have quite a few gaps to fill in. For this challenge, we ask that you only post a thread if you know the first name of your ancestor. You are allowed to post up to two threads each per week, e.g. your own ancestor and your OH's as well.


This week, we are focussing on your father's mother's father's father's father's father.

If you want to take part, just start a new thread on this board and put your 4x-great-grandfather's name in the Title. Copy the following form and fill in the answers that you already have, then over the course of the next week you try to fill in the blanks and everyone else helps you. If you're lucky enough to have all the information already, then you can still post it up if you want, so that search engines can pick it up.

Can you fill in all of the following information about that person:

Name - "official" name and what they were known as
Date and place of birth
Names of parents
Date and place of baptism - if applicable
Details of each of his or her marriages - if any
Occupation(s) - if any
Addresses where they lived (including county if in UK) - and please list which censuses you have or haven't found him/her on (if s/he lived in census times!).
Date, place and cause of death
Date and place of burial.
Details of will / administration of their estate - if applicable
Memorial inscription - if any


Adoptive or step-4x-great-grandparents welcome!

Also, something new for TO4G - if you have posted a thread in TO3G for this ancestor's son, could you please include a link to that thread. If you search for the tag TO3G9, you should find it. Please let me know of any missing / wrong tags and I will correct them.

Afraid I'm going to have to sit this one out - FMFF was a bastard, no record of his father.
