Lanarkshire / Address of Graham wedding 1910 Glasgow
« on: Tuesday 22 August 17 16:16 BST (UK)  »
I wonder if someone with a knowledge of the streets of Glasgow could identify the address occurring twice in the attached clip? It appears to me to be 812 S--ingburn  Rd.

Many thanks

World War Two / Abbreviation in RAF service record 1941/45
« on: Thursday 11 May 17 22:13 BST (UK)  »
I have recently received the records of an  officer who was killed in January 1945. The last entry in the movements section of his record appears to be a blurred stamp possibly reading G.C.L. (1893  handwritten) DEATH PRESUMED.

Could someone please explain what the G. C. L means???

Technical Help / Downloads xti().php
« on: Friday 06 May 16 18:54 BST (UK)  »
Over the last couple of days I have been getting downloads from time to time of the type xti(X).php where X is a number currently 9.

What are these files. Googling didn't mean much to me!

I bought a new computer in the spring of 2015 and have been using PAF 5.2 successfully until recently.

I produced a Family Group report with about 12 photos in it which when sent directly to the printer prints as expected.

However if I Save to File I get a .pdf file which when I open has no images just a box where the photo should be.

The files open in Word Starter 2010 and there is mention at the top of the screen that the file has opened in Protected View due to the File Block settings in my Trust Centre.

I have tried changing some of the settings but I still can't get to save with images attached.

Is there a solution short of removing Windows Office Starter and installing the full suite?

Thanks in advance


Derbyshire / Leonard Walker - quarry accident Tideswell area
« on: Sunday 10 January 16 10:58 GMT (UK)  »
I'm trying to obtain details of an accident in which my GGF Leonard Walker (b 1853 Tideswell) lost a leg. On the 1891 census he is a limestone dresser and on the 1901 a shoe and boot dealer. I suspect the accident probably happened in this time period.

I did a search of newspapers some time  ago without success.

Any suggestions where else I might try will be welcomed.



The Common Room / Als Timperley
« on: Monday 31 August 15 14:39 BST (UK)  »
I have come across an Als Timperley on Val Neal's extraction CD for Tideswell PRs.

Als is bapt. 19 Nov 1680

Is Als a short form of Alice or something else?

Not sure if this has already been posted but came across this last night.

Technical Help / Deactivation of desktop icons
« on: Thursday 10 May 12 10:19 BST (UK)  »
I'm operating a PC with Vista Home Premium and Internet Explorer 8

When I fire up the PC the icons on my desktop allow activation of programs as normal. However sometime during the session the icons cease to function although I can still start software from the side bar.

I thought this loss had coincided with my downloading Skype software so I  deleted Skype, but the icons still don't work! I subsequently activated the webcam function of Facebook which appears to be functioning OK.

Any suggestions to sorting the loss of function of my desktop icons gratefully accepted!
