Cornwall / Re: Helston workhouse burials
« on: Today at 16:22 »
Thanks all for your help. I will send for her death certificate at some point it may throw up a clue.

I believe my great grandmother grew up in the workhouse and in 1882 she applied to enter it for her confinement according to the newspaper The Cornishman dated 21st April 1882. Sadly Hetty died when she was a few months old. I think it was then my g grandmother went back into service. Returning to  the workhouse in 1887 with another baby on the way...this one survived.

I have an Epson printer and there is an offer to take out a subscription for their inks.
I know that it works by reading the chip on the ink cartridge and will send you inks by post when required. But my question is do I need to leave my printer on permanent standby for this to happen? I prefer to turn off my printer when not in use and when I go away turn off all non essential electrical items as I don't like leaving things on standby.

My mother-in-law told me she had all her teeth removed when pregnant with her first child. This was in 1942/3.

She said it was because pregnant women often experienced dental problems. But I think her teeth were not in a very good condition anyway.

I am left handed as are several of my family. I do loathe the expression cack handed and find it very offensive. Another out dated expression I can't bear is hare lip when referring to someone with a cleft lip.

Good episode. Marvin seemed genuinely shocked by the fact his black ancestor kept slaves.

I think he and his mum may have found a new hobby  :)
