Hello. I am looking for a burial for Maria Lane (nee McSweeny) who died probably early 1837. Her husband Michael Lane was a prominent civil engineer who worked for I. K. Brunel on the Monkwearmouth Dock 1835-1840. Any help or suggestions appreciated. Rex Sinnott

Looking for some help if you are able to. Putting together a Priesthood line of authority for someone I recently ordained. I share my Dad's and I am trying to put together one with photographs. Dad was ordained a HP in Sunderland in 1970 by James Smillie and himself ordained by a Frederick William Oates in 1966. Did you know either of these men or know someone who may have? My family was in Sunderland Ward in the early 1970s and my parents are Allan and Jean Henderson. If anyone can tell me more about Frederick William Oates and James Smillie that would be great. A photo of one or both would be great too. Thanks, Martin Henderson

Thankyou for your great work in cataloging and transcribing headstones in the various cemeteries. Very helpful for those researching their family histories and recording history.

I enjoy finding myself on your missionary list for 1971, but I would be happy if you would remove Denmark and write Sweden instead as the land where I come from. I have written to you before about this but no response. I hope to be able to visit you during 2017.

I served as a missionary in Sunderland for 8 months in 1971. I am on your missionary list, but I am from Sweden - not Denmark! I will definitely visit Sunderland ward during 2017. I enjoyed your website immensely. So wonderful to see what is going on 45 years after my mission. I loved serving in Sunderland. Baptized Ken and Eileen Turner and their children, if you remember them, and the mother of Ruth (Lakeman) Safak and many more. Looking forward to hearing from you. I live in Gothenburg, Sweden and have served as Stake President here for over 10 years.

Planning on a trip "home" next year [2017] and wondered if anyone knows the dates of Sunderland Stake Conference?
Thanks . Ann

Just a correction to your Index section if I may. You refer to "Sunderland, Tyne and Wear (formally County Durham)." It's "formerly" and the City of Sunderland is still officially in County Durham (see Association of British Counties website). "Tyne and Wear" is a defunct Metropolitan administrative area. Sunderland is, in fact, a Unitary Authority in its own right.

Best regards,

Sarah Furness
Hello, I have sent an email however I will leave a message here also. My father and his parents and sister worked and lived at Town End Farm, he left the farm to join the army as a young man. My Grandmother Sarah Furness is buried at Castletown Cemetery and my parents were married at St Mary Church. We visited the cemetery when my father was alive however, there had been some vandalism and we think my grand mothers headstone had been broken. Any pictures or information relating to town end farm would be welcome. My grandfather worked at the Colliery also. Family names were Furness and grandmothers maiden name was Conboy.

Lisa Stolarski
Greetings. My name is Lisa Stolarski; I am researching my family's genealogy and the birthplace of my great grandfather on my mother's mother's side is listed as William Rennis Smith from Sunnybrough, England. I figured out that there is not more borough of Sunnybrough, but there are two William Smiths in your records. One of them has no date or town associated. I wonder if this might be my great grandfather, his parents were Owen Smith and Ella Kenna. If this William Smith is indeed my great grandfather then it might interest you to know that he moved to Monongahela Pennsylvania where he was an importer of European goods until the market crash of 29. He then lived in Pittsburgh and operated an elevator in a fine hotel called the William Pitt. He married Rose Barrett and had three children in Pennsylvania, Mary Cecilia, my grandmother, William Smith and Rennis Smith, my great-uncles. Rennis died of fever during WWII.
