You should be able to find your nearest library here Linda.

I know they have some in NZ - so hopefully one near you in S Australia.

I think the story eventually came out that in the 1960s, there was a sort of 'heritage' push, and people were asked if they had anything interesting to add to the archives. (I think they might have gone round organisations like the WI). And my lovely aunt deposited a handful of photos and a short piece of writing to go with each one. Bless her!  :)

Hi Cath
I should check first with Warwick RO that they are actual photographs, and not negatives.
I too was very excited to find some 'photographs' of my great grandfather on The National Archives website, held at Greater Manchester Record Office. They had been deposited there in the 1960s, (unbeknownst to anybody else in the family!), so of course before anything digital. They turned out to be in thumbnail negative form, which meant I had to order photographs to be produced from the negatives, which took a couple of weeks if I remember rightly.
Very exciting to find them thought!

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Re: Short Latin piece from Court of Chancery

Thanks very much Bookbox and HD.
I can do without the translation then, thanks for the offer Bookbox.

Interesting piece from TNA HD.

I'll have another search under the other names - though I think I did that for William Lane at least, as he is wrongly transcribed as 'William Cane' on the precis on Discovery, so I was checking to see if there was anything else for William Cane to see if he existed on anything else. (I have asked TNA to look again at his name, though my I fear my email may have got lost in the ether, as it seems several weeks ago now and I haven't heard back from them).

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Short Latin piece from Court of Chancery
« on: Wednesday 07 November 18 10:10 GMT (UK)  »
I would be grateful for the gist of this please if possible.

From a Bill in Court of Chancery 1662 between John Rowley and John Bowyer, and several other bit part players, about inheritance of land, two of whose names I can see in this, the only page written in Latin - Robert Cartwright and John Ford .
Other names in the actual Bill in the group these two were named in were William Lane, Ralph Stone, and Margerie Eardsley, but I can’t see their names in this bit.
I think this bit comes after an ‘answer’ to the Bill by Robert Cartwright and John Ford - or at least by their counsel.
There are no answer pages for the other 3 defendants. Does anybody know what would have become of their cases?
It will be interesting to see what this Latin piece says.

Many thanks.

Technical Help / Re: Rootschat "Home" page problem
« on: Monday 05 November 18 20:18 GMT (UK)  »
I know I'm a few days late but didn't see this thread before.
I too was getting problems last week with not being able to get onto the site - messages about security etc. To be fair, my Mac is getting pretty old now, and I thought it was something that had happened to the site so that I could no longer access it. (I have other sites, normally those with lots of whizzy graphics, which won't load. They are no great loss as they're usually shopping sites!).
I know I shall have to bite the wallet soon, and get a new computer, and I thought my time was up.
But thank you Trystan and Sarah, I now don't need to do that just yet,

Thankfully a couple of days later (sorry, not sure which day), all was well again and Rootschat now loads fine - and it is the https version. I use Safari (probably not the most up to date version Trsytan as this machine won't take an upgrade).

Once again thank you Trystan and Sarah.  :)

Thank you so much StevieSteve! :)

Not looked at them all yet, but they will keep me busy for a while!
