Have you tried contacting Lincolnshire archives ? They might be able to help.

Sorry jen , I haven't been herefor a while. That is a pretty basket, I do hope that yours is too, the shape is there, to my eyes anyway  ;D.

I received my great grandfather's asylum records through the mail, no problem at all.

Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Re: Problems with 23andme?

A-L, one thing I have noticed is the large percentage on my match list who have not logged in over the past six months. I assume they have tested for ethnicity or health reasons and will not respond to a message. On reflection, the health aspect will only increase the numbers on the site who are not interested in genealogy. Early days yet but I am not hopeful.

I have some of those too.I did notice that a couple of them had since been online but never replied.
Why put your information there if you don't want to be contacted ?

The problem that I've found with it is that people don't answer when you contact them, that annoys me the most.
However, I suppose that happens on all sites.

Isn't that an 'S' on his chest (jacket) ?
