Hi, I have got access to this photograph from my late brother's collection but unfortunately no information along with it. I am hoping it is my mother Jane b2-1-1924 and her mother Georgina b8-7-1905. Any information would be welcome, thank you.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Alexander Leiper 1861 Census
« on: Monday 06 January 20 19:55 GMT (UK)  »
Hi, I'm trying to make sense of the above record. It looks like in the right hand column(occupation) that it has "Begin Monday" scrawled across it. If I'm reading this correctly, does this just mean that's where the census taker left off at the weeks end and wrote over the top of it on Monday or am I missing something? Thank you.


Hi, I have recently been given access to these two photographs and would be grateful if anyone can remove the blemishes. If anyone can date Georgina that would be helpful too. As I am off on holiday, I thank you in advance but I will respond when I get home in a week as I am abandoning technology for this time. Thanking you

Hi, I have attached an excerpt from the 1883 death register of my five year old grand aunt. Can anyone decipher the cause of death for me please. I read it as "Acute yellow ????? of Liver" and I think the doctor is John Mackay. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

Hi, I know this is not a great photograph but as I don't have many of my parents, can anything be done with this? I appreciate it's a lot of work and I will understand if it's too much. I think it was by a street photographer in the late'50s or early '60s. Restoration only please, no colour.
