I just hope if it is pay per view that the indexing is accurate. And that we are given more options to search other than just name.  I have wasted so many credits in the past looking at wrong-uns  :(

The train to come by is the one etc.

And the lodge to live in

Surely if Jordans grandfather is still alive he can request his service record himself.  There is a downloadable form on the govt website.

It's the great grandfather that they are looking for  :)

Apologies, my mistake.

I have a family of eight children, none were given a name on registration except the last daughter. Simply registered as male or female.

The Common Room / Re: Fashion at 1941, 1951, 1960 and 1969 weddings.

Two of my aunts appear in 1950s wedding photographs wearing fur coats . Another has a fox fur stole, the ones with the heads and feet on. Again in the early 50’s four weddings and all the brides are wearing the same dress, it was passed around the family. The brides just wore different head dresses.

I myself had a faux fur coat in the early 1970’s, it was supposed to look like pony :o

Essex / Re: Where did all the Hammonds go in 1841?

1841 Census was in June so it’s extremely feasible that as Agricultural Labours that they could be moving around for seasonal work.

Yes, agreed but you would still expect to find at least one of the four.

Was anything happening historically c1841?  I ask because I have a very similar situation in Sussex, two brothers and their brother in law are also all missing from home, wives and children are all enumerated as expected.  I’m inclined to think they’re drunk under the table at the nearby beer house  ;D

How times have changed.  I can remember waiting for the 1861 census to be available.  A very kind researcher at the time lived near the record office and very kindly went to have a look for me.  I was thrilled with the info she passed on. All written out by hand, no scans or images available at the time. I remember putting a fiver in the Lifeboat collection tin as a thank-you.
Here on Rootschat folk are happy to share for free information when they can from resources that they have paid a subscription or fee for.

It’s true that genealogy/family history has become much more affordable and accessible. Back in the dark ages you had to travel to record offices. My first trip to TNA cost a tank of fuel, lunch and a few pounds for photocopies of documents. Now people moan about paying a couple of quid to view an image… ::)
