The Common Room / Re: Should I just bin all my reserach and forget about it?

Pharma T, have you got the message by now?
Who do you believe & trust?
"Them"? - or us Roots lot?
You should have got the message ....

What a pity the person who led you to this hasn't posted why they felt they had to undermine you????
We could have all had a bit of a go at he/she....
-Oh no, blood sports are banned, aren't they?

Never ever found anything like that ... probably because I've lived and worked in a different area to where my mob were B,M, and D, but it must be interesting to have it happen .... and what happens if they are the one who tells you... and you can't stand the person???

Oh, PharmaT ... yet again you've let people upset you to the point of tears .... who on earth are they to do so? Wipe those eyes, set back those shoulders, stand tall, and think straight:
You have successfully brought up your daughter - who sounds a fine girl. - What have "they" done?
You have spent years chasing facts and information IN ALL AVAILABLE FORMATS, and piecing them together, exactly as we all do, to build up as good a picture of our family ancestry as we can - should we all give up, too, because we haven't actually got the hand-written on vellum original dated 1323?
You have checked,  double-checked and treble checked, I'm sure, all the information you've collated
 before adding it - what "proof" have "they" of their accuracy?
You have helped others on these forums, and contributed to the successful research done by others -  "they" probably have been as negative, tearing down everyone else they have corresponded with ... have a look at their earlier posts, you may see a theme...
You do have a tendency to take everything as your fault, or your mistakes ... Why? Believe in yourself, - as you can read here, others do ... and who else counts than your family and friends -including on here?
Keep on with your research, don't chop that tree down into firewood, watch it bloom and blossom, as it grows ever stronger!

Recorded this lot, because I knew I'd not be able to watch them in "real time" - now not quite sure if I want to, or not???

Yorkshire (West Riding) / Re: Velvet mills and the Armitage family
« on: Thursday 06 December 18 16:07 GMT (UK)  »
There is / was a velvet mills ( and shop, because I recall buying a lovely length of green devore [can't "do" accents on here] velvet in the late 60s / early 70s) near Denholme near Keighley in West Yorkshire. I've a feeling it may even have been called "Denholme Velvet" - but I've also a feeling that the last couple of times I've been near there, clearance and/or new building was taking place on the site. Local trade directories may help?

Fraternal greetings to fellow northerners - even if you have pinched bits from us, at least you're not southerners!

Lancashire / Re: Looking for St Mary Magdelene RC Burnley marriages

I'll keep looking, but I'm away from base for a bit, so you might have solved this with other help by then. I've not forgotten it.
