Technical Help / Re: How to access the hard drive?

The interior of the hard drive should look something like this image. The disc inside the casing is the target for destruction. It's actually quite a sensitive soul and the aforementioned "8 hits" should see its demise. (although made from different materials its about the size and thickness of a DVD but not as flexible)

PS although extremely therapeutic - especially if you recall the hassles it has given you in the past please remember to wear some form of protective face or eye gear

If this "belt" is flat and attached to the back of the drive it is the connector cable  (see picture) and should unplug. Start at one side and tug it out or to save the effort, cut it as you are not going to reconnect anything else.

You beauty, Dyingout! Done it! (I'm sure there'll be a medal in the post!). Now I've got to work out which is the hard drive and I can get on with the 'smashing to pieces' bit. I think that You Tube video might help with locating the hard drive.

Inside the case there should be a set of rails or a framework - if you locate your cd/dvd drive the hard drive is generally mounted in the same rack. Undo the screws holding it in place and it should slide out.

I'm assuming I'll have to take it to a special part of the tip?

Once you have the hard drive out - one very therapeutic way to deal with it is to use a large hammer (wearing the correct safety gear  8) ) and smash it in to multiple smaller pieces. After that it can be dropped off in the electrical section of your tip.

Scotland / Re: Interpreting 1719 sasine

It was possibly not a land dispute but proof being provided as to the right of inheritance as title to land was not generally passed on through a Will/Testament until the latter part of the 19th Century

Retours of heirs -
Whenever a vassal died, his heir had to prove his right to inherit. In the case of a subject superior, a jury of local landowners was assembled to hear evidence and to decide whether a particular individual was the rightful heir.-

Checking Scotlands people there are no recorded Alexander Clarks born in 1889 in Port Glasgow between 1888 and 1891.

Have you found the family in the 1891 census - a quick check in Renfrewshire doesn't bring up much (one William Clark in Port Glasgow and a few in nearby Greenock)

Lanarkshire / Re: Agnes Street, Maryhill - where buried?
« on: Wednesday 15 July 20 10:34 BST (UK)  »
The 1905 Valuation Roll at lists 12 tenants at 36 Agnes Street, so it looks as if this address was a tenement block.

In 1915 and 1920 one of the tenants is William Holliday. In 1925 he is listed as William Halliday. He is last listed in 1930, as William Holliday.

Possibly the same person, there is one death listed in the Maryhill district in 1944 - William Holliday aged 79

Technical Help / Re: iPad problem

You may have to use recovery mode on the iPad (holding the home button and power button until you see the recovery screen) and then connect the iPad to a computer with iTunes installed. (The method of accessing the recovery mode does vary depending upon which generation of iPad you are working on )

Using iTunes you should then be able to Reset the ipad

Have you tried deleting the freeserve account from the listed email accounts

The factory reset normally doesn’t need anything more than your Apple ID and Apple password
