Welcome to the list.
One of the best pieces of advice I can give is to familarise yourself with
the Genuki pages for Devon - found at http://genuki.cs.ncl.ac.uk/DEV/ . I
would also recommend that you visit the Devon FHS site at
http://www.devonfhs.org.uk/ and as it appears that your links may be to the
Southhams area Ray Osborn's site at http://my4bears.orcon.net.nz/Home.html
is very useful.

> Hello Listers:
> I am new to the list and have been reading all the wonderful advice you
have been dispensing.
> There are two main questions I have that are general ones and they are:
> 1. How does the Devon government record office work once it reopens for
business on March 14 regarding ordering information from parish records?
> 2. What other links on the web do other people use besides Ancestry.com
and 18370nline.com to find information?
> Anyways, I have been trying in vain for the last several months to find
the following information on my great great grandfather so I can order his
marriage certificate and birth certificate.
> This is what information I have thus far:
> Emmanuel James Harvey
> born 1829 Blackawton, Devon, England
> died 8 October 1900 16 Ashleigh Terrace, Paignton, Upper Devon, England
> Wife: Susan Kelland Foghill(?)
> born 1830 Slapton, Devon, England
> died 27, March 1897 131 Westbourne Cottage, Dartmouth, Upper Devon,
> The earliest census I have been able to find has been the 1871 census
which list them with the children that have been born thus far.
> I would appreciate anyone who could find the time and patience to assist
me with these questions. It is a little frustrating living so far--deep in
the heart of Texas and not being able to find answers that I have been
searching for a long, long time.
> Thanks for all the help.
