  3. Mad or obsessed?

    Having traced as much of my father's direct line as I can (though a few details remain to be found) I find myself embarking on tracing all the side shoots. This seems to be born out of a) boredom b) curiosity concerning what happened to all those lines that I used to get confused with my main line...

  6. I'm soooo impatient

    Sometimes waiting for a reply from someone can seem like hours when in reality it is only a couple of minuets. We could do with a 'nudge' button on here like they have on 'windows messenger' you click it and it makes their screen wobble. Not good if you're feeling a bit queezy though. ...

  7. Kelly's directory of Kent

    The C.D. I ordered of Kelly's Directory of Kent 1922 arrived yesterday afternoon just before the internet connection was lost. I was able to view C.D. instead & pleasantly surprised I was. How very well done & so easy to use. My thanks to Archive CD Books. Unsure yet if I found my Lady &...

  8. Cookie conundrum

    Devon County Council now warns me 'We would like to place cookies on your computer to help make our website better'. Then it asks me to choose between 'I accept' or 'I decline'. In the small print underneath it says 'Please note this will create a cookie to remember your selection.' |doh|

  10. Does anyone recognise this man?

    This picture of him is on the wall of the Penny Black public house in Bicester and is next to portraits of Oliver Cromwell and Charles I. However, his clothing is of a far later date than the civil war and I estimate that he was from the late 1800s. Both my friend and myself tried to think of...

  11. Genelogical Weirdness

    I seem to have a lot of "coincidental" things happen to me but this one really freaked me out - a few days ago I was mindlessly wasting time scrolling through the Feay/Fay name on the census for England (always hopeful that something will pop out and solve my Feay puzzle that is twenty years old)...

  16. "FUNNY" things happen on Wedding days

    Reading some of the posts on weddings got me thinking about weddings. Many of us remember our wedding day, but lurking in the back of our memory-bank, there may be a funny momemt. Mine occurred about an hour before my wedding. We had our rehearsal a few days before, but due to adverse weather...

    Here I am sitting in the garden of my house in Scotland connected to the web though BT Openzone (or whatever it is called). Good job it's a warm sunny day. I could be inside but my BT broadband connection (no Vigin Cable up here) only worked for five minutes before the modem packed up. I...

  18. Publication dates

    I have some books that do not have a publication date anywhere on them, so how can I find out if they are still within copyright date? They are reference books and look as if they were published in the 1930s-1950s. But, without reading them from cover to cover in a search for clues - and we are...

  19. Are you green?

    Have you historians seen this one yet? Checking out at the supermarket recently, the young cashier suggested I should bring my own grocery bags because plastic bags weren't good for the environment. I apologised and explained, "We didn't have this green thing back in my earlier days." The clerk...

  20. Lightbulb What a disappointment

    I've just been trawling through the Australian newspaper site (TROVE) with a search on "William Tuson". I came across something that appeared to be a murder trial printed in a paper dated 1917. So I thought I'd make a later search for a William Tuson who died in 1917. But then a bit further down...
