Soyland, Ebenezer – Monumental Inscriptions

Last updated on March 14th, 2019 at 04:02 pm

We have been advised of 2 errors on a Monumental Inscription for the Halstead grave. “Hiram” was incorrectly shown as “Ivor” & Leah’s age was shown as 26 instead of 86. The correct entry should read :-

HIRAM HALSTEAD, died April 13th 1901. aged 72 years. Also LEAH HALSTEAD, who died March 9th 1916, aged 86 years.

Halifax St John BMDs – Missing Data

Last updated on March 14th, 2019 at 04:02 pm

The CDs & downloads for Halifax St John BMDs for 1813 to 1837 has recently been found to have a set of data missing.   Specifically, in the date sequence file only, baptisms from 1/7/1827 to 31/12/1827 are missing.    The files giving baptisms in name sequence are unaffected.

Anyone who has previously purchased a download of these files should already have had a replacement file sent to them.    Anyone who has previously purchased a CD & would like a correction file sent to them, should E-Mail projects@cfhsweb.co.uk & we will arrange for the corrected file to be E-Mailed to you.

Our thanks to Mr. David Greenwood for pointing this error out to us.
