Welcome to Rootschat

Rootschat has a strict "no living persons" policy & the daughter you name was only b 1948 so could still be alive.  You need to remove her name from your post.  Click on the "modify" button in the right hand corner of your post to edit it

She appears to have married in Sussex in 1968 & there is a possible birth there so you could perhaps look up the details using then check or to look for a contact number or address

Hi Carole,

There doesn't seem to be a modify button.  ???
And if I want to post anything it continually says 'Note: this post will not display until it's been approved by a moderator.'  :-\

I suspect this is because you are a new member, you need to make 3 posts.  If you reply to this post, I believe that you will find that you can then modify your original message.🙂

The Common Room / Re: Help needed to identify this , found among other war medals
« on: Thursday 23 September 21 11:19 BST (UK)  »

It looks to be a generic silver medallion/fob commonly found on watch chains.  Also given as ‘medal’ prize for all kinds of events. An old horticultural society in a village near me used to give this type of medal and a cup for the best vegetable or flowers. 1st prize got a cup and a medal. The cup went back, the medal you could keep.

Indeed  :D.  I wouldn’t agree with deleting any member no matter how long they had been inactive.

I’m always logged in, can’t see any reason not to be. If for some reason I do get logged out I have to re set my password because I can never remember it. 

On the subject of old posts, I was contacted just yesterday by someone who found an old one of mine. We’d been in contact years ago but lost touch.

If you wish to "standardise" the spelling within your tree I would suggest that you note on each record the spelling that was used if it differs from your chosen spelling.
So you may choose to index everyone as Trussler but on an individual's records you might note that at baptism they were recorded as "Trusler" and at marriage they were recorded as "Trusslor".
That way if any issues arise in the future you can see where any discrepancies are.

That’s what I have always done. I use the spelling as it is known today, but make a note if it differs in specific records.

20. Thou shalt claim to have been born in a different parish/county/country in each and every census.

Vis a vis no.14, thou shouldst have at least three children born in the same or consecutive years all with same name.

I don't know the ins and outs of it all but I think the brothers get along.

They may do now, but this sounds like a recipe for disaster.   :o

What does the brother think about this?  It all sounds decidedly dodgy to me. The implications for the brother could be very concerning.

I agree with the flower being a tulip but I think you are nearer to 5 than 6  :)
