Success After 15 Years of Looking! For several years I have been fairly sure that my great-great-grandfather was the son of Robert Ing and Rose Richardson, but I seemed to be unable to find a document to prove it. Today it happened! England Births and Christenings, 1538-1975 Name Robert Ing Gender Male Baptism/Christening Date 09 Feb 1806 Baptism/Christening Place Chesham, Buckingham, England Birth Date Birthplace Death Date Name Note Race Father's Name Robert Ing Father's Birthplace Father's Age Mother's Name Rose Mother's Birthplace Mother's Age Indexing Project (Batch) Number I04642-7 System Origin England-EASy Source Film Number 1999163 Reference Number item 2 Doing a search on the film number at is accomplished by clicking Library then Library Catalog, then Film/Fiche Search. This tells me what is found on film 1999163 item 2. "Items 1 - 2 Bishop's transcripts for Chesham, 1576-1841 Church of England. Parish Church of Chesham (Buckinghamshire) Items 3 - 4 Bishop's transcripts for Chesham-Bois, 1600-1813 Church of England. Parish Church of Chesham-Bois (Buckinghamshire)" Other searches today found births and deaths of additional children in the family, and disproved a suspicion that Robert's Sarah sister went to jail for theft. (She died long before the other Sarah Ing commited the crime.) So I am rejoicing in a very successful day! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I just HAD to add this, it is so good! 50 Best Genealogy Brick Wall Solutions I just received the first part of this excellent article from the Genealogy in Time newsletter.
