Technical Help / Re: Access file deactivated

Can the attachment be sent in another format?

Or, is the complaint about an embedded file? In which case, get that embedded file removed.

It's a Dragon "couped" and a cut shaft "Pole-axe".

Malky

I'd go along with that ;D
(Hadn't spotted the broken shaft :-[)

I have attached a snippet of a dragon's head from another armorial.

1871 census has him born in Glossop:

Likewise 1881 census:

I can't see a Birth Registration under either Wyatt or Whyatt?

It's not a seax ;D
A seax is a curved sword with a notch - see the arms of Essex & Middlesex.

For me, it's a dragon's head, holding a battle-axe in it's mouth.

Not that this helps in identification!

Cornwall-OPC-Database lists 6 baptisms of a William Trewartha, between 1880 and 1810.
5 of them are at Gwennap; 1 is at Illogan.

On marriage, William is of Kenwyn?

Family History Beginners Board / Re: Accuracy of 1939 Register Added Notes?
« on: Monday 21 May 18 15:56 BST (UK)  »
I just wondered really how much weight we can attach to the added notes and when were they added.   These particular notes appear to be in green ink (Biro?)when other notes on the page are clearly made by a fountain pen

Green ink for fountain pens was available well before biros came on the scene. ;D
And red, blue and turquoise!

World War Two / Re: POW WWII Records
« on: Monday 21 May 18 09:15 BST (UK)  »
What data set was this? Was it "Prisoners Of War 1715-1945"?

FindMyPast has this to say about the data set:
This collection of records from The National Archives includes papers from the Foreign Office, War Office, State papers, Colonial Office, Admiralty and Air Force.
The latest records contain the names of thousands of prisoners in camps throughout Europe and Asia during the Second World War.

So, you could search TNA?
Or simply pay the 12.95 for a month's access.
