Europe / Can anyone help with modern Swedish records?
« on: Tuesday 17 August 21 11:17 BST (UK)  »
I want to track down a marriage in Sweden in 2002 and a divorce there in 2006. Can anyone advise if such information is available online please?,

Are you sure it's watercolour? It looks more like pastel to me, with lines in charcoal or possibly ink,

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Re: Signature Comparison

The main similarities to me are the extended forward loop of the W to cover the i of Williams. The identical final letters of both names; the rather strange use of a loop in the first l but not in the second; the general spacing of the letters and the formation in general. Given the problems with limited space and unusual equipment I am more convinced they are the same the more I look,

There are enough similarities to suggest it's the same hand to me.

It might be worth while looking at the Facebook site, Bristol past and Present. There also used to be a Flickr site of old Bristol photos, Brizzle born and bred, I think, but I'm not sure if it's still there,

I think it's another daughter, named Alich (Alice?) and the second word I read as Whome, although the capital W is odd,

No Bev, that's a generation or so later. The one April is after was murdered by Alexander at the start of his reign, along with his niece, Philip's wife. As all the records for this period were written centuries after the events, I would guess his parentage might be unknown,

It is 'als' with a contraction line on the 'l'. The full entry covers two lines and the surname is Norton alias Philpott. The purported father is Roger Philpott a married man,
