World War One / Nobe(s)court farm Roisel
« on: Sunday 15 April 18 12:51 BST (UK)  »
I will be staying at this farm next month and I know it features as a place where fighting took place. Unfortunately I did not make a note of where I got this information and would be most grateful if anyone could give me a link to follow up, perhaps war diaries of units there.  Many thanks.

Technical Help / ipad and cloud
« on: Saturday 20 May 17 11:47 BST (UK)  »
I have deleted an app on my ipad, but now want to reload it.  When I go into apps and type it in, next to where it used to say 'free' to the right it now has a cloud symbol. When I click this it only goes into a page showing the app but nothing happens if I press the cloud symbol.  From what I can ascertain, although the app has been deleted from the ipad, it is still there somewhere as it 'belongs to me?'.  As you have probably gathered reading this I don't understand Cloud at all.  Can anyone tell me if it is possible to get the app back, and if so how?

Norfolk Lookup Requests / Marriage look up for Waylands Norfolk
« on: Thursday 25 August 16 13:09 BST (UK)  »
Can anyone help me please by looking up the parish register of the marriage between JOHN DAWSON and VERA SELLORS (Sellore in Ancestry transcript) It took place in the last quarter of 1939 at Waylands, Norfolk. They were both born in Ashton under Lyne Lancs.
The problem I have is that there are a number of John Dawsons all born between 1912 and 1915 and I need to know who his father was to find the correct one.  I believe it could be a Halliwell Dawson but without confirmation cannot substantiate it.  I have also tried to find a church in Waylands and none are listed.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Technical Help / Family Tree shrunk, and cannot read
« on: Wednesday 20 January 16 13:58 GMT (UK)  »
I have Windows 7 and recently went into Personalise to try and improve some of the visual displays etc to help me see them better, including trying to enlarge writing.  However this has resulted in Ancestry/Family Tree 2012  showing the attached (much reduced and squashed up) family tree.  I do not know what I have done to do this, so cannot rectify!!! Can anyone sort out what I have altered and need to do to get it back to normal.

Technical Help / Problems with teletext on Philips HDTP8530 DTR DVR
« on: Monday 18 May 15 11:31 BST (UK)  »
Recently purchased new TV and new DTR. Everything working well except occasionally have problems getting the teletext up.  Some days it works fine and others not so. The TV is set up to work through the DTR  and everything else is okay.  What I am wondering is if it could be something to do with getting the 'correct signal'.  Cannot see how it can be the DTR at fault as it does work fine at times.  Any thoughts or advise please.
