Technical Help / Calamitous Firefox Quantum update
« on: Thursday 26 April 18 00:41 BST (UK)  »
Downloaded the above last night and have spent ages since trying to recover my saved logins with passwords, which I rely on considerably. Visits to the Firefox help forums have discovered several people in the same fix, but with no simple solution to the problem. I would love to read other users' moans about this so as not to feel completely isolated, and if any Firefox fan (as I have been for years) has found a solution I would love to hear from them, congratulate them and benefit from their expertise.
        Now where did I store my library pin . . .

Cymraeg - Welsh Language / 2018!

Blwyddyn Newydd Dda i bawb a llwyddiant efo'r chwilio!  :)

Newydd orffen 'Poeri i Lygad yr Eliffant' gan Wil Aaron, Lolfa, 368 tud, 14.99: hanes y Cymry (efo llawer mwy o Saeson a phobl o wledydd eraill Ewrop) yn dilyn y trywydd i'r Gorlllewin efo'r '49ers am gannoedd a channoedd o filltiroedd drwy bob mathau o anhawsterau o dywydd, afiechyd, ymosodiadau Indiaid a llwybrau caled, gan ddilyn teuluoedd efo'u henwau a'u cartrefi gwreiddiol o bob rhan o Gymru. Heblaw am y cyswllt Cymreig mae hefyd yn gronicl o bobl yn aberthu i gyrraedd rhyw Eden (fel yn y Wladfa wedyn) rhag gorthrwm a thlodi. Darllen da a chynhyrfus.

Cornwall / Trenwith (Poldark) - is it Kernowek?
« on: Saturday 01 July 17 00:15 BST (UK)  »
Welsh speaker, follower of Poldark; I know little Cornish but am intrigued by its survival in place and personal names. 'Chynoweth' as a personal name - Carly etc -  is familiar as equivalent to the Welsh 'Tŷ Newydd' - New House, but wonder whether Trenwith is a made-up name or rather an English-accented version of Tre Nwith (or Noweth). 'w' is a vowel in Welsh, and can be a whole syllable, as in 'cwm', borrowed in English by geologists and mountaineers. I'd love to know.

United States of America / Help in finding grave, Linden Hill cemetery, N.Y.
« on: Saturday 15 April 17 00:38 BST (UK)  »
My friend is visiting New York next month; she hopes to find the grave of her grandfather, Capt. Owen Owens of Wales, died May 2/3 1917. She has their website but would be most grateful if someone could make her search easier by telling her what help she may expect from the cemetery authority in respect of maps, directions, references, whatever.
              In grateful anticipation,

Cymraeg - Welsh Language / Daniel Morgan, cadfridog ym myddin yr UDA, 1700au

Gweld yr enw yng nghyswllt rhyfel yr Unol Daleithiau a Phrydain a meddwl yn siwr ei fod o dras Cymreig; mi enillodd frwydr bwysig i America a chafodd yrfa ddisglair. Llawer amdano ar Wikipedia; roedd ei rieni wedi ymfudo o Sir Feirionnydd, debyg, Y Bala, dw i'n meddwl. Ddim yn perthyn i mi  :(

Pob hwyl dros y Nadolig i Trystan, Sarah a phawb, a Blwyddyn Newydd Dda o chwilio!  :)

Carmarthenshire / Burial location needed, prob Carmarthen
« on: Sunday 04 December 16 01:30 GMT (UK)  »
Trying to find for a friend where her ancestor, Alexander Hughes, was buried; he lived in Carmarthen and the Carmarthen Journal published the funeral report on June 29th 1984, with full details of tributes and mourners, but no details of disposal. The undertakers have ceased trading; cremation is a possibility, but I am hoping that someone may have access to a Carmarthen cemetery MI list. Apologies if this is information that should be paid for; an annual subscription or CD seems a bit steep.

Wales / Carmarthenshire FHS -still there?

Anyone out there a subscriber to the above? I stopped getting members' list messages by email in June and have failed to get a reply by email at several addresses; please tell me I'm not alone and please offer a cure if you can.
