Technical Help / Using phone as satnav.
« on: Saturday 05 June 21 17:45 BST (UK)  »
I have an android phone, not the most expensive model.
I don't use mobile data often ,it's mostly for calls and wifi as I don't have a contract.

Ive started group walking on footpaths and tracks in the hills. The last place had no phone signal.
Is there a simple map programme I can use to find my location off line.
It would be useful to know where I actually am and how far to my planned destination.

Also I would really need to know how to use it.

Armed Forces / Who was Major Mansell / Maunsell
« on: Tuesday 18 May 21 15:10 BST (UK)  »

Llangollen Advertiser 8th December 1916

Staffordshire Soldier Decorated at Wrexham. On Tuesday.afternoon Major Maunsell of Beechley, Wrexham, visited Roseneath Hospital and decorated L.-Corpl. Hemsley. of the North Staffordshire Regiment, with the Military Medal, which has been awarded to him for conspicuous bravery on the battlefield. L.-Corpl. Hemsley, who comes from Burton- on-Trent, has been wounded three times, and his leg has been amputated.

7th December 1917
At the matinee Major Hugh Peel, of Brynypys, presided, and those present included  Major Mansell, , and a crowd of wounded soldiers.

Does anyone have an idea who Major Maunsell / Mansell was. I can find a Major Mansell in South Wales  earlier but he is a magistrate.


The Common Room / Monumental inscriptions
« on: Saturday 17 April 21 19:19 BST (UK)  »
When a headstone had an inscription later added, would it be taken to the masons work place or would it have been done on the spot.
Would it have to be laid flat to be worked on. This is 1876.
The reason behind this is that the stone isn't in the same area as similar dated burials.  It's on its own at the back of the Church and lying flat.

Canada / Searching for a marriage
« on: Wednesday 07 April 21 13:00 BST (UK)  »
Cyril Walter Cuthbert born 1907 in Lincolnshire,  parents Walter and Rosa Harriet Cuthbert. 

In 1925 he arrived in Canada,  Quebec as a farmer.
By 1934 he is back in England with his wife Elizabeth Susan. Their children have mmn Creighton.
I think I got Elizabeth Susan b Ireland with her family already in Canada,  but can't find a marriage in UK for them.

Lincolnshire / Beaumontcote. Barton on Humber
« on: Tuesday 06 April 21 15:28 BST (UK)  »
I have child born in 1910 at Kings Road, Barnetby, unfortunately no number is given.
The mother was domestic servant at Beaumontcote, Barton on Humber.  Birth certificate.
Ive managed to find it on the 1901 census and there are quite a few families there, one family I found again in 1911 but it isn't specific on the adress, all are just Barton on Humber.
Was it an estate , village,  I'm not having much luck finding any information.

The Common Room / Birth registrations 14 years apart.

Eileen B Gallagher mmn Cuthbert.
June qtr 1915, Grimsby.
Sept qtr 1929 Grimsby.

The parents married Dec qtr 1915 Grimsby.

GRO.index The 1915 birth isn't there but the 1929 one is.

I have Eileen in 1939 after her marriage and her birthdate is 21 May 1915.

It's a bit confusing. 

Technical Help / Google photos back up.
« on: Wednesday 24 March 21 18:41 GMT (UK)  »
I don't use this much but after some issues lately I backed up all the images on my Android tablet to Google photos.
Many were just screenshots .
I went to Google photos today to delete some of them but they've also gone from the Gallery, so Ive lost them completely. 

Is this normal. 

Technical Help / Google stopped working
« on: Tuesday 23 March 21 11:58 GMT (UK)  »
On my Samsung tablet Android I'm getting the message Google has stopped working, also Email has stopped,
Google Play services and briefing has stopped.

Google is working fine through Chrome.
OK. I'm rather confused by what to do to sort it.
If I clear cache and data as some pages suggest will I lose anything.

I really don't know about the Force Stop , can anybody help me please.
