Hi Laura,

Yes it can be quite exasperating. Good to hear from you. ;D


Hi Cham, I clicked on the link and also got a black screen. So then I tried right-clicking on it and went to 'copy image', clicked on that and pasted it into 'Word' and it was then readable as a black and white image.

Hi Adam,

I have also been looking around for the marriage of Thomas and also the nearest I can get is the same as Ciderdrinker. Cambridge St Peter 21 Mar 1751/2 Thomas Hermunt and Martha Gooden.

St Peters nr St Giles was united with St Giles at that time.


Hi River Tyne Lass,

I have ancestors from Tyneside. No poems written as far as I know.
I found Poem number 4 "Two Silent Minutes" by Mrs Robert Lockhart very moving.

Thank you for posting the link.  ;D

Yep, as you say Selina,

Wellington Row is in fact at the top right and names have changed and it looks like Wellington Row
became Wellington Street. Along which there was a small church called St Johns.
