Re: Research on Family Name HINDESS

Funny, I too have an extract from a Brighton newspaper of 1946 about the funeral of Amelia Hindess. My reference to John Hinde is based on a visit to HMS Victory (perhaps 30 years ago!) and seeing, I think, a list of the ship's company at Trafalgar. There was no Hindess, but Hinde seemed close enough to draw the conclusion. Bear in mind that this was more curiosity than any serious interest in genealogy.
It is interesting that you mention Tynemouth. My father was a Geordie, born in South Shields or thereabouts. His father, Thomas, was lost at sea in 1915, leaving a widow and 8 children. I have some details of the family (but cannot lay my hands on them at present!). Even my father had no idea where some of his brothers had got to and I have no contact with any of my cousins now (all of my father's generation are dead now). From my father's age when orphaned and the size of the family, I would guess that Thomas Hindess was born about 1880.
Caleb doesn't mean anything to me. Also, I do not really understand what GEDCOM is. You will gather that I am not into genealogy and the internet quite as much as you seem to be. However, I hope there is something of use in these ramblings.
