Jan 2013 Hello there,
I have been looking at your site with great interest as it mentions my ancestors several times. One thing in paticular I would love your help with is a picture SM099 that is a school picture. The girl on the extreme left back row of your picture is my grandmother Helen Wheatley. I have half of the original picture and there is another girl to the left of Helen. I have attached a copy of the half I have and a picture of my grandmother on her own. I would like to know would it be possible to obtain a copy of the original as obviously the one I have is damaged. I would be pleased to pay any printing costs. The other family members that are mentioned on your site through baptisms etc. are other Wheatleys, Annie bap. 1893 and Joseph Bap.1905. They are brother and sister to my great grandfather Daniel Wheatley. Their parents were Daniel Wheatley and Eliza (Nee prince whom I have a picture of). Do the original documents or records still exist and if so is it possible to view them? Annie and her husband emigrated to california in the 50's. Their daughter is still alive and lives there today, although a ripe age.
I hope you can help and if there is any more I can help with I would be only to pleased to as my family roots for generations stems from Bolton area. My father remembers it very well.

Thank you in anticipation of your reply.
Regards Simon

My Reply
Hello Simon
Thank you for contacting St Marks, The photo SM099 was sent to me a few years ago I didn't realise it was not complete, I attached the full version this has not been re-touched so is as received.
Regards records for St Marks Baptisms and Marriages they are held at Bolton Archives and Local Studies on microfilm in cabinet ‘A’ drawer ‘5’ boxes 19-22 (1866-1971).
I have photographed many of the Baptisms and Marriages, but unfortunately when I originally started I typed them into my laptop while viewing the microfilm, it was only later that I took my camera with me so at the moment I only have Joseph’s at hand which I also attach, I shall be continuing to photograph the marriages and baptisms this year and add many more of the same to St Marks Web Site as well as updating the Headmasters Diaries etc. David
