Technical Help / Re: iPad back up
« on: Friday 12 April 19 07:02 BST (UK)  »
Regarding your old iPad, try charging with your new cable (so long as it’s the same type).  Cables usually need replacing before the battery.
I usually plug into an extension lead but found using a new cable into a wall socket (we’ve changed most of our double  wall sockets to ones that also have usb connections too) and my IPad came back to life.

Going back to factory settings won’t delete your iCloud account from the cloud as that is attached to your Apple ID and not device

FYI, android allows you to to connect to iCloud....  well they are not going make it difficult to change over are they  ;D  apple on the other hand  ::)

Re 1939 register - Yes I didn’t read all the way through the thread to realise Leo Bland was Elizabeth’s widowed husband until after I posted it.

Seems his estate went to probate, unfortunately administration rather than a will.

Search his name and year. It will give his date and place of death.
Administered by William Thomas Anthony, schoolmaster.

He is a widow and living in Llandilo in 1939 if that helps narrow down a burial place

The Common Room / Re: Picture found during a clear out and its a ROAH

Hi,

A very warn welcome to RootsChat!

Looks rather like the RAOB (Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes, or just Buffaloes for short) regalia.
The initials ROH stand for 'Roll of Honour'. See here: http://freemasonry.london.museum/it/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/The-Royal-Antediluvian-Order-of-Buffaloes.pdf

Hope this helps.

Kind regards

David

Hi and welcome to RootsChat.

You just beat me to it David..my Father was a member of the "Buffs". There is a long post on the Buffaloes already on RootsChat with lots of helpful advice. I can't post a link from the iPad but perhaps someone else will do it. I think the post title was "Buffaloes"

Carol

Possibly this thread Carol?

The Lighter Side / Re: Find a Grave corrections.
« on: Saturday 23 March 19 20:10 GMT (UK)  »
I must be one of the lucky ones and have found lots of distant rellies on Find a Grave and only once have I felt the need to contact the contributor. Sadly no reply.

But on the brighter side, only today I found a fairly recent burial for a lady who was a war bride, marrying a Canadian soldier and returned to Canada with him. She has been on the outer branches of my tree for a while and was doubtful I would find anything more about her.  Not only was her burial there, but a lovely photo plus photos of her memorial and her obit from the Calgary Herald 2011. All lovingly added by her grandson  :D
I knew nothing about her husband apart from his name and marriage details until today and now know so much more about him.

I am very grateful to all those that take time contribute.

Technical Help / Re: iPad mini advice please?

Any notes you make in the Notes app stay in the app, but do back up to icloud.

I would suggest making screen shots for the notes you wish to keep and they can then be transferred along with the photos. 

Just adding in case you are unsure on how to do a screen shot: 
press and hold together the power button and home button until you see the screen flash. You will then find the screenshot in photos.

Makes my Durham Records Online sub seem very cheap..... I have definitely got my money’s worth out of that as I live down South and visiting is impossible.

The Church of England is NOT the government!  But it does set fees for looking up registers, which vicars may or may not enforce, and for other things.

I know, that is the bit that got me.
