Meeting Report Thursday 1st June 2017

The Wharfedale Family History Group met at the Salem Church Hall, Burley on Thursday 1st June. Chairman Lynda Balmforth introduced our speaker for the evening, Group President Stanley Merridew who presented his talk ‘Beyond the Obvious (Further Research into your Family History)’. Stanley first of all outlined his role as a family historian rather than a family tree maker. The latter is often nothing more than a list of names and dates whereas the family historian seeks to put ‘flesh on the bones’ of their ancestors by looking at their lives and the historical context in which they lived, and can therefore be much more rewarding. The ‘obvious’ family history resources are Civil Registration, Census, Parish Registers and Wills but as Stanley explained, using examples from his own research, there are many more ways of tracking down our ancestors’ lives.

School records such as admission registers and logbooks can provide interesting information. Many are in the course of being added to the Find my Past Website but it can be worthwhile checking in local archives or seeking out copies of school magazines. Employment information can be revealing; apprenticeship records are widely available online and Warwick University holds trade union records. Examples for the Wharfedale area are the Farnley Estate Records and William Ackroyd Ltd of Otley wage books 1845 onwards which are both held at the Brotherton Library, Leeds.  Our ancestors’ leisure activities can be interesting too; enquire with local museums, libraries, sports clubs for any information they may hold. For example, Bradford Archives hold records for Baildon Choral Society and Independent Foresters Society of Baildon membership registers from 1835. Church records (including non-conformist) can provide useful information; look for minute books, Sunday school records, membership rolls and so on. Paw Law records such as settlement disputes may contain names you are looking for, as can rate books (like those held by Otley museum). Quarter Sessions records (held by County record offices) are worth looking at to search for ancestors amongst the indictments, bonds and licenses etc. If you do find a name you are looking for further detail may be available in the newspaper archive. British Newspapers online are available in libraries as well as on Find My Past. The local Deeds Registry can also be a good source of reference. The Genealogist Website includes digital tithe records so you may even be able to see a map of your ancestor’s land. Whilst there is currently a wealth of information available relating to the First World War it is worth checking for earlier records such as local militia and muster rolls: check local library catalogues to find out what is available.

These are just some of the many different ways of looking at the lives of our ancestors and filling in the gaps between 10 year census returns. More generally it may be helpful to contact local family history groups and historical societies for help in tracing ancestors. Locally the Otley Museum, Washburn Heritage Centre and local studies sections of Leeds, Bradford, Ilkley, Otley & Skipton libraries may well be helpful with your enquiries. Lynda Balmforth gave a warm vote of thanks following questions and discussion from the audience.

The group’s next meeting will take place Thursday 6th July 7.30 pm at the Salem Church Hall, Burley when we will be holding a research evening. Please come along if you are keen to either start your family history research, break down a brick wall in your existing research or just need some advice. Internet access to the main Family History Websites will be available plus support and encouragement from our committee members. Everyone welcome, members and visitors, and refreshments will be served. 

The index, on this page, relates to the compilation of the active male population of the country for military training and was created due to the impending threat of invasion by Napoleon. The acts referred to in this title required the compilation of lists of all men between the ages of seventeen and fifty-five, arranged in four classes:

  1. Unmarried men under thirty with no child living under ten years of age.
  2. Unmarried men between thirty and forty-nine inclusive with no child living under ten years of age.
  3. Married men between seventeen and twenty-nine inclusive with not more than two children living under ten years of age.
  4. Other not included in above classes.
