Question 1[edit | edit source]

St John to St Thomas or St Leonards?[edit | edit source]

Question 1: I wondered if you could clarify something about one of the 'Known Issues': (Film 1040361) FamilySearch Catalog Film 1040361. Familysearch is now aware that St John items have been recorded as St Thomas items England Deaths and Burials - FamilySearch Historical Records/Known_Issues However, I searched the original books in Hackney archives and could not find the following record either under St John or St Thomas. Joseph Forsyth, died 1815 From the microfilm, are you able to tell me if the record is for St John, St Thomas, or perhaps it is for St Leonards? (If it is for St Leonards, then maybe some other St Thomas items are in fact for St Leonards.) Many thanks again, (NAME AND EMAIL REMOVED AT THE REQUEST OF THE PATRON) Parrisl 06:24, 20 November 2014 (UTC)

ANSWER 1: The record for Joseph Forsyth is found on image 485 of film 1040361. The indexed record says it is on page 345 in item 8 of the film. It is actually page 345 in item 9 of the film. The record is from St Johns Church, Hackney churchyard.  Records found from item 10 on this film are from St Leonards.
