The Stay Safe Board / Not wearing a face mask
« on: Friday 14 August 20 22:44 BST (UK)  »
I was quite shocked today in Aldi - St Annes (Fylde)  branch.  In the first 2 aisles I counted 8 people without masks - mainly in the 20/30 age group.

2 were couples, a group of 3 young lads and a youth on his own.  I accept some people have hidden disabilities but 8 on the same day in what is quite a small branch of Aldi???

The Lighter Side / Family Search - Log in issues
« on: Wednesday 15 July 20 17:50 BST (UK)  »
Anybody having problems with FS? 

I log in - select to stay logged in for 2 weeks - but if I leave the site even for an hour or so I have to log in again

This is only happening on my iPad - not my desk top PC - and is a recent thing as I have never had a problem before

The Stay Safe Board / General discussion on current situation
« on: Sunday 10 May 20 01:54 BST (UK)  »
I heard that Blackpool was heaving today so I dread to think what's going to happen if any restrictions are eased.  The death toll is still far too high for my liking and with the 10-14 day incubation period for this virus I think another 2 weeks of restrictions would not be that unreasonable.

My neighbour was in shock on Thursday.  He is an engineer and his workplace have been staggering shifts to ensure distancing.  A colleague was sent home sick last Saturday, he was on a ventilator by Monday and died Wednesday.  Confirmed Coronavirus as cause of death

The Stay Safe Board / Banking scam
« on: Friday 08 May 20 11:56 BST (UK)  »
Just been talking to one of the nurses at our GP’s practice.  She told me that a couple of “at risk” patients had received calls from an 0800 number - supposedly a bank.

They were offering to deliver money “at this difficult time”. - no guessing at what came next re bank details etc!!

Worrying thing is - it was only people identified as “at risk” who had received letters from either GP/Consultant or NHS texts to their mobiles.

I have also posted this on the Lancashire board

https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=829551.new#new

I have all other info on this couple except a marriage.  Both were born in Monmouthshire but all 3 of their children were born in Liverpool between 1868-1874.  Henry died in Liverpool 1879

In 1861 Fanny was still in Usk Monmouthshire

Fanny is shown as Frances Lucas on the 1841 census but on all later censuses and on her re-marriage in 1886 & 1906 death reg she is Fanny

She re-married 1886 to Hugh McClements and is shown as a widow on the marriage cert

I am beginning to think they never married

The Common Room / Anybody else having Family Search problems on Apple iPad?
« on: Thursday 19 December 19 23:19 GMT (UK)  »
About 3 IOS updates ago - I could no longer access FS.  Had no problems previously and thought it may have been corrected with the next update - but it hasn’t

If I input www.familysearch.org - I get the main page without problem

However - if I then select “Search” then “Records” The search page loads then fades out.  It then reloads and fades again then the following message appears

A problem repeatedly occurred on https://www.familysearch.org/search/.  In the URL it shows Web page crashed

iPad is running IOS 13.3 which is the latest update

The Common Room / Family Search problems

Is anybody else having problems with FS today?  www.familysearch.org/search

I'm using my iPad and have never had a problem before.  The search page loads - although the login side screen is missing and replaced by a map. 

It won’t allow input and then auto reloads twice more before I get a message saying “a problem repeatedly occurred on www.familysearch.org” and the tab on my iPad shows “web page crashed”

Lancashire Lookup Requests / Lancashire RO marriage lookup request
« on: Friday 28 December 18 16:53 GMT (UK)  »
I am helping a friend with his FH and have hit a problem with one of his female relatives.  I have not given her full name in case she is still alive as she was probably born in the 1920’s but I cannot find a death under her married name

Per Lancsbmd and freebmd - December qtr 1946 at Immanuel Church Oswaldtwistle - Samuel MacLachlan married KH.  (Lancsbmd have his surname mistranscribed as MachLachlan)

www.lancashirebmd.org.uk

Samuel was born 1924 and died 1999.   No childrens births found.  KH is not the 1920 or 1926 birth so I wonder if she was a young widow

Is anybody going to Preston RO who could look up the marriage to see if K was a widow and who her father was?
