Talk:Have Your Say
To the Administrators
I have created a page for Walter M Gallichan (under Famous Islanders: Arts). I cannot figure out how to upload a photo of Walter M. Gallichan nor can I figure out how to create a list (of his books). I found templates but not one that really seemed to match the look and feel of biographies.
Hence, I have probably messed up the look at feel of this section of the wiki :-)
I have a photo of Walter M Gallichan and if you let me know how to upload, I can contribute it. thx
St Martin Marriages - 24 12 1812 David Grandin and Elizabeth (both St Mt) I believe this should be David GAUDIN?? Thanks.
The marriage is listed under Grandin in the CIFHS transcription of the register and the groom is clearly shown as Grandin in the de Quetteville entry. Only a check with the original register could clear this up. What information do you have to support Gaudin?
St Peter Baptisms/Burials
Hi, There is a baptism: ST PETER BAPTISM 16 Dec 1787 Josue son of Josue LE COUTEUR and Marie leRossignol
and a second Josue baptised 1790.
Checking the burials I found: ST PETER BURIAL 10 04 1787 Josue son of Josue LE COUTEUR
One of these dates appears to be wrong.....??
The baptism dates are as in the transcriptions. The burial record transcription actually says '10 April or May 1787' which does not help in relation to the date given for the birth of the first Josue. This is one of those little mysteries which could only be resolved (possibly) by referring to the original registers.
Hadn't heard of theislandwiki until I did a search to find the length of the tunnel under Fort Regent. Now I've found it, I'm interested and will be using it more when I have the time. However the reason for this post is that the figures in the "Tunnel page" are inconsistent. The first reference to length is 420 metres, which I believe to be certainly wrong. The other reference is 830 feet long which though a little more than I expected is probably right as other precise dimensions are stated in the same sentence. It would be 253 metres.
