Technical Help / Computer numpty needs help
« on: Saturday 12 September 20 13:57 BST (UK)  »
I have been using an hp chromebook since June which was to replace my very old laptop and was recommended by my daughter as very easy to set up and use as she knows I "don't do technology"
I only use it for fun,a few websites and the odd email is as much as I can manage. I am a complete dunce at anything technical (the last time I used my dvd the steel magnolias were speaking Italian !! )

For the past 3 or 4 days the machine has bee running very slowly.I have tried to find an answer but keep getting technical jargon I do not understand.Please could someone help me in words of one syllable as to what the problem might be and how to fix it. I really am an absolute numpty with any thing complicated.
Many thanks.

Technical Help / Printer ink cartridges
« on: Thursday 12 March 20 14:00 GMT (UK)  »

I have an HP printer and have always used their cartridges but they seem to have tripled in price in the last two years so I am considering buying compatible ones. I am rather wary as I have had trouble with them in the past in a previous printer,not an HP.
Does anyone use this type ? and if so where is the best place to buy them?
Many thanks for any help and advice.

For the past 2 or 3 days I haven't been able to get on to Facebook.I either get a blank page or a list of things down the left hand side which don't do anything. I'm not very computer savvy so when something goes wrong I'm stuck. Can anyone give me some advice and help. Thank you.

Were the Trade Diretories such as Whites and Kellys just for people in trade or were they used as telephone directories as well ?

Lincolnshire Lookup Requests / Help finding William and Lucy 1871
« on: Monday 16 February 15 15:33 GMT (UK)  »
Please can anyone help me find William and Lucy Killick in 1871 in Lincolnshire ?

I have them on every other census with various children but just can't find them in 1871.
I have seen them on a few Ancestry trees but not in 1871.
I think the surname may be wrongly spelt but I have tried every way I can think of.
I would be so grateful for any help.

Lincolnshire / Wainfleet St Marys Burials
« on: Tuesday 20 January 15 12:31 GMT (UK)  »
Is there any where I can find out about burials in Wainfleet St Marys 1928 ?
I'm trying to find this for an American relative, she has a photo of the gravestone but we don't know where it is.

The Common Room / Ancestry etiquette
« on: Sunday 11 January 15 13:42 GMT (UK)  »
Should living relatives be listed as private on a public tree on Ancestry ? I have just returned to my tree research after a long break and found my name on someones tree. It may be someone I have had contact with in the dim and distant past (memorys not what it was ! ) but I certainly don't remember giving permission to be put on a tree. I will contact the tree owner to see what the connection is but would be interested in others views on this.

The Common Room / Any hope of finding where Grandad is buried ?
« on: Thursday 27 November 14 13:37 GMT (UK)  »
Charles Edward Wichman (Wickman on the death certificate ) died in Radford 17th April 1944 aged 70. His death was certified by the coroner "after post mortem without inquest " The informant was G.W.Richardson and says "causing the body to be buried "

Charles was my husbands Grandfather,born in Sheffield but according to family rumour deserted his wife and 4 children after "drinking away the profits " of his jewelry business. Never mentioned again,recorded as deceased on his daughters marriage certificate 1932.

I know this is a long shot but I wondered if there was any way to find where he was buried.

Any help welcome.
