Sudermand, welcome to the British Genealogy Forum, and thank you for your helpful post. However, I'm afraid that the original poster on this thread hasn't been back since 2011. If they are still using the email address they registered with and switched "notifications" on, they'll get a message that you have answered and may respond.
In the mean time, why not have a look round, pick an appropriate place and start a thread about one of the brick walls in your research? We are a friendly, helpful group.
