    Default What have I been watching...............?

    No prizes for this one - just something to get you thinking............

    While I type away on the computer I often have a portable DVD player on nearby - as much for the dialogue as anything - I know most of the scripts off by heart; but still enjoy them. So what I have been watching recently?

    1.
    RG13/868 f41 p41
    RG13/74 f129 p26
    Clue - "Is he alright?" - "Yes" - "Pity"

    2.
    RG13/4805 f65 p24
    RG13/1599 f146 p28
    Clue - Woodstock town centre at night

    3.
    RG13/81 f68 p19
    RG13/350 f159 p9
    Clue - Boccherini

    What links all three, who can be found in the above census returns and of the above who changed their names and to what?

    (No.3 is the easiest).

    I'm confused as I get several hundred results when I put the folio and page numbers in on freecen as I don't know any other way.

    Hi Robin,
    Sorry but FreeCEN will be no good to you this time, as the references begin RG13 which means the 1901 census, and the 1901 has yet to be transcribed to FreeCEN.
    You need a subscription/pay-to-view site such as Findmypast, The Genealogist, or Ancestry.
    Though I didn't know that you could search using a census ref on FreeCEN

    I used the folio and page numbers on freecen, not sure how to search for specific records on Ancestry.

    I think I know what the link is, and who changed their name, but I can't access

    3. RG13/81 f68 p19
    on either of two sites, so I conclude that there's a typo.

    Also have you watched three different films/plays/TV programmes, wiith the people in them forming the common link? (I know it's a dumb question, but I'm having trouble with three titles. )

    Oh..............................golly gosh

    I did of course just want to see who'd spot that deliberate mistake.

    It should read RG13/86 f68 p19 (Elizabeth Street, St.George Hanover Square) as identifying this entry is probably the easiest way to solve the whole thing.

    That's right, three different productions with a common and obvious link

    RobinC - sorry, this is really for those who have a subscription to a census site.

    Bother, if that means Find my Past, as the UK has the least respect for our humble Aussie Dollar. I shall remain unknowing.

    Um, still stuck on three different productions, but your 'deliberate mistake' takes my total to 4 four people in the common link.
    I could ask a supplementary question too. 'What connection does the link have to Boston Lincolnshire?'
