PDF files from GRO (General Register Office)
The GRO has a PDF pilot program for at least the next three months. If you have
Great Britain ancestry, this could be really beneficial; also, quicker than snail
mail. The extended Pilot covers PDF copies of those historical digitised civil registration
records held by GRO (i.e. birth entries from 1837 - 1916 and death entries from
1837 - 1957). A GRO index reference is required to be provided with the application.
You can find the GRO index references by logging on to the GRO online ordering service
and accessing the GRO online indexes. A PDF will cost £6.00 each.

"The Mighty Mux"
USS Mullinnix (DD-944) was a Forrest Sherman-class destroyer of the United States
Navy. She was named for Admiral Henry Maston Mullinnix USN (4 Jul 1892 - 24 Nov
1943), who was killed in action during World War II, when the aircraft carrier USS
Liscome Bay was torpedoed by the Japanese submarine I-175 and sank southwest of
Butaritari Island on 24 November 1943.

Mx Military Records
As part of our Resources section of the MxWorld website we wish to further develop
the Military records. Brian Seddon AU019 contributed the information to kick-start
this project. We have a large number of records relating to Mx service personnel
in WWI and WWII. We have commenced putting some of these records on our website
but some of the remaining material requires minor editing or further research. This
is not an onerous or long-term commitment but may appeal to a member with a particular
interest in military history – we would be delighted to have someone take on this
If you can assist us with any of the above please email, Brian Seddon, on

What became of William W's Cutlass?
In the 1750s, the colonies of Maryland and Delaware had some border disputes. One
such area was known as "Cedar Creek Hundred" and there dwelt William W Mullinax,
his Coverdale in-laws and some neighbors. Tax collector Outten finds the home of
William W. Mullinax, and places him under arrest. William W. breaks free, and in
the scuffle Outten gains possession of William W's cutlass. But what became of William

Member MxPedigrees began appearing on the website several years ago as part of the
DNA Surname Project. We are in the process of expanding the pedigrees to include
information submitted by past and present members for publication in MxWorld.
When the project is completed you will be able to upload a GEDCOM file of your Mx
ancestry where it will become part of a searchable all-name database of member GEDCOMs.
Until then, you can add or update your information on this website at
Add/Edit Pedigree Information.
This information can be accessed by our members using the new
Names of living individuals, or individuals with a birth date after 1911 and no
death date, are automatically hidden on the website.
From time to time we all find ourselves facing an apparent brick wall in our research
efforts. We find pieces of the puzzle are missing and cannot be found. Sometimes
another pair of eyes or knowledge of a little known document resource can break
the barrier and open new connections. If you find yourself in that situation we
might be able to help.
We are into the August issue which is the first of Volume XXXII of MxWorld. This
year seems to be flying by, especially the summer, it always goes too fast for me.
In this issue we will be saying goodbye to Margaret Molyneux Hemming as our Australian
and New Zealand’s representative. Margaret has served as Rep for 15 + years and
all at MxWorld will be sad and miss Margaret’s dedicated input, but it is right,
that family needs come first. Jim her husband has been very poorly and her dedication
to his welfare is paramount. We hope that someone out there can volunteer to step
into Margaret’s shoes.
It is also sad to see Croxteth Hall suffering and failing at the moment, home of
the Molyneux family, Earls of Sefton. In 1972, the 7th and last Earl of Sefton,
Hugh William Osbert Molyneux (1898-1972) died without having any children, so the
estate was eventually passed on to the Liverpool CounciI to be enjoyed by the people
of Liverpool. I think they have run the estate as well as they could up until now,
but apparently the estate is now running at an annual loss and cannot carry on in
that way. I do fear for its future, so many of these old buildings get sold off
privately and end up as hotels or a spa etc. Not a fitting end but it would be even
sadder to see Croxteth Hall deteriorate. Ideally personally, I would like to see
the National Trust or someone of the same ilk to step up and rescue it, will they!
Who knows? (see p.4.)
I am sorry if this message is short and sweet, but I am just getting ready for a
week’s holiday as I have had to cancel it once due to the car! Who would have them?
We are off to Devizes where I believe the museum have pair of Molyneux Globes, also
close to Dorset where my Molyneux DNA seems to be the strongest.
I hope everyone is well and keen to keep up the Molyneux family research.
