Hello everyone - have been a quiet member for a few months now, and am getting to grips with genealogy and where to research, having started building my family tree since retirement last year.
I have a number of queries, I do go off at tangents at times, but hope someone can help point me in the right direction(s).
My ggg-grandfather was named Johnson Citizen and is noted on 1851 census as being born in Denmark and a British Subject. I would like to know more about his Danish heritage and also how he came to be a British subject. Are there any recommended routes I could follow to find this information out?
Sadly, he died in July 1860 in Northern Hospital - the death certificate states "accidently killed on board of a ship. Fracture of the skull and leg." It has states that an inquest was held on 13th July 1860. Is there anywhere to get more information about the inquest?
I can't find him on earlier censuses, but do have his marriage certificate from 1838, to Patricia Duncan (born in Scotland), they were married in St. Nicholas' Liverpool.
Any guidance would be much appreciated. Thanks.
