Lydart's already added the 'green tick' to show it's completed :) 

I thought the original poster could always lock their own thread though - they seem to do it on the ToT board :-\

Yes, you can on the ToT boards but not on the others.

Lydart

A while ago you asked for help regarding an uncle's (?) occupation, recorded in 1939. Best guess was that he was a Food Can Material Layout Supervisor and Engineering Clerk.  The troubling word is not "Material" but "Molinal". This is a rare word, and it means "of the mill". Derived from Latin, it exists more or less in the French word "moulin". Your relative was a "Food Can Molinal Layout Supervisor.

Hello, Kevin. Welcome to RootsChat.
I see that you are trying to attract the attention of Lydart, regarding an old enquiry. Presumably you can't recall title of the thread on which the question was posted.
If that's the case, I reckon you have 3 options.
1.  Hope Lydart has email alerts to this thread or returns to it regularly. (Neither is certain.)
2. Click on Lydart's profile then click on "Posts" to see if you can spot the thread. I've just done that. There are 800+ pages of posts, so it would be a long search.
3. Make 2 more posts, then you can use the private message facility to contact Lydart.
Can someone else say whether 2 more posts on this thread, which is an "Off Topic" board will count towards Kevin's total to enable him to use PM facility?   :-\

The thread you've landed on has nothing to do with family history. See Reply #180 from Romilly at top of this page, in reply to David, another lost newcomer. You've wandered into the fictional village of Ambridge. The only families we talk about on here are the Archer family, their relatives, friends & neighbours.
If posts on here count towards your total,  you could simply reply to my post to increase your tally.

Thanks for the information.

I spotted Lydart's original thread. Lydart closed this topic a little while back, so I thought I'd try something current, even though not on topic. I'll give Lydart one more go.

Thanks for clarification.
So, Kevin, you'll need to contribute to a thread/threads on the main forum to increase your tally. Then you can PM Lydart.
Unless you want to stay in Ambridge and diss the characters and storylines 
while waiting for Lydart to show up.
