Thank you Maddy.
I thought it must be a special Rootschat bookmark, that I have never been able to find.
Glad I was brave enough to ask. :D

Yes LM the weather is shocking.
It looks like Mme Kathleen has gone off in a huff.  Puff?
But apparently an equally grumpy Mme Lillian will be arriving very soon!
I must say I am fed up of it, and to be told we will probably still need hosepipe bans is the icing on the cake!!
Apparently it is blistering hot in Cumbria. Lucky them.

Your unfathomable game situation sounds fascinating RTL. Hope you get it sorted very soon.
If I get anymore invitations to give my talk, I will let you know. :D

Hello.  It's been a long time since I looked in, and it is good to see everyone still chatting away.

I have spent the morning entertaining the Paignton Ladies Group with my "Day in the life of a Tudor Ladies Maid" talk.

It was fun to do, and seems to have been well received.

The weather down here has been absolutely shocking again; the rain hammering down earlier. 
I am so glad I don't have to slosh around in long skirts very often!

I have an interest in Johan Michael MAUCH + half brother Johannes and their families, who sailed from Hamburg on the Johan Cesar in 1855, arriving at Moreton Bay in Feb 1856.

I would like to know if there is any reliable information about how these emigres were "processed" and dispatched to a work place?

Good point Erato....
So far I have only found him as a labourer in a paper mill, but I need to check every census with that in  mind.
