    Harry Wragg

    Harry was the son of Arthur Wragg and Nellie Hunter. His father Arthur won many cups for athletics and boxing in his younger days. The old Bell is where the racing career of Harry began. Harry's dad went in to the pub one night, and struck up a conversation with a man who had come from Newmarket stables to collect a Sheffield youngster who had signed on to become a stable lad...but the youngster had had a change of heart. Harry's dad offered his son as a substitute (it was a time of high unemployment) and the boy went on to earn fame and fortune, nicknamed "The Head Waiter" because he timed his push for the winning post with such perfection. Arthur Wragg and my grandfather Frank Wragg were brothers. Angela

  7. I realise this is an old post, BUT I have been transcribing the Ecclesall Bierlow Union Workhouse, Register of Inmates and noticed that some of the Belgian refugees were admitted to the workhouse in October 1914 reference NHS 21/5/6/3. This might have been temporary. Not relevant to "Quakers" but I know that you are interested in the Belgian refugees. Angela

    Ancestry Versus Findmypast

    We S&DFHS have never been approached by Ancestry. The first records to go on Find my Past were the NBI records through the Federation of FH Societies, this was when the site was known as 1837 online. This is the statement released by the archives in 2013 and printed in our journal. Sheffield Archives has recently committed to two separate projects involving the digitisation of archives by commercial suppliers. The first, in association with Find My Past, will see an estimated 15 million Yorkshire Anglican parish register records for the years c. 1538 - c. 1920 made available via the internet. This will include images of the registers, as well as transcripts. The Yorkshire-based project has established a 'Yorkshire Digitisation Consortium' comprising all Diocesan archives in the historic Diocese of York (apart from West Yorkshire which has already signed a contract with a supplier). In addition to Sheffield, the consortium includes the Borthwick Institute (University of York), Doncaster Archives, North Yorkshire County Record Office and Teesside Archives. The involvement of both Doncaster and Sheffield Archives (with coverage of the whole of the Diocese of Sheffield) means that for the first time access to key genealogical content for all of South Yorkshire will be available worldwide, twenty-four hours a day, 365 days a year. It is hoped that the digitised records will be available within the next eighteen to twenty-four months. Microfiche copies of parish registers, and more recent original volumes that have not been copied, will continue to be available for free at Sheffield Archives. Sheffield Archives is also part of a national digitisation project led by the National Archives and the U.K. Archives and Records Association. Involvement here will see digital images of the city's school admission registers, c. 1860 - 1914, made available via the internet. The timescale for release is similar to that for the parish registers, and once again existing surrogates and original volumes (falling without the 75 year restricted access period) will continue to be made available for free.

    Ancestry Versus Findmypast

    We (S&DFHS) submitted the 1831 Nether Hallam census. FMP have filmed all the Anglican registers at the Sheffield archives. I have also checked and it does appear that only the bishops transcripts are available for marriages at the present time, apart from all our baptism, marriage and burial registers transcriptions. We get a royalty payment for every hit on our transcriptions from FMP. They are releasing the records slowly from the Yorkshire consortium. Some of the Doncaster registers are now online. We are now concentrating on transcribing all the non-conformist registers as FMP did not film these. Angela
