The Common Room / Always better to view the original!
« on: Sunday 14 February 21 16:31 GMT (UK)  »
I've always advocated that it is better to view the original manuscript rather than a transcription.

1901 census - Matlock - RG13/3266 folio 101 page 37

Violet Ward -
adopted daughter 
age 6 (about) (exact age not known) 
Where born = not known, found on Railway in parcel.

Transcription - age 6, Birthplace = N.

I'd always heard that it was "Essex girls" who had the reputation.  Wrong again - thank goodness!   :)

The Stay Safe Board / 2020 Flu Vaccination
« on: Saturday 21 November 20 17:23 GMT (UK)  »
Not quite sure where I should be putting this "rant"  :-\

I received, this morning, my letter from NHS reminding me to book my appointment for the flu vaccination.  OK!

BUT then, a second sheet of paper regarding "Help the NHS save money on letters like this" - again OK - save paper and postage.

BUT then that same page offers only ONE alternative and appears to assume that EVERYONE has a smartphone and can download the Camera app.

When will it be accepted that not everyone has a smartphone, can afford a smartphone, or even want a smartphone?

Sorry, a MOF  :-*
