Armed Forces / Re: Women's Legion uniform??????
« on: Sunday 19 September 21 18:35 BST (UK)  »
Thankyou medpat, nanny jan and Hillhurst.

Really surprised at the id of WRAF uniform - never had any mention of or reference to this in our family. 

No mention of Daisy (Daisy Fitzhardinge Weaving) in the WRAF records that I've found online.

Regret no links to Surrey that I know of, nor to British Legion, which isn't quite the same at the Women's Legion.

thanks for your interest.


Armed Forces / Women's Legion uniform??????
« on: Friday 17 September 21 20:36 BST (UK)  »
Wonder if any of you clever Rootschatters can identify this uniform?

Being worn by my great aunt, Daisy. 

Daisy was born in 1890, and until now I had no idea that she had served in any of the services.  Some very brief correspondence in the same folder as this picture refers to the Women's Legion - an organisation I'd never heard of before, but involved up to 40,000 woman taking on roles in WWI, many cooking and driving. 

So I wonder if the uniform is Women's Legion?

opinions please!

Does anyone know of any online version of Stadhampton parish records that are later than 1837/1840 where the data on the OFHS cd ends?


Family History Programs, Tree Organisation, Presentation / online photobooks?

Does anyone have any recent experience of using a online-produced photobook as a way of sharing old photos?
Do old photos reproduce to an acceptable quality?
Is there a company you would recommend?

We wonder if it would be a good way of sharing our best old pics with lots of family members.

I certainly would have done if the Pickups were of particular interest to me, it's just that I have a book of local history in Alberta that includes some quite detailed information about the Pickup family, and I thought that the contributors to this thread might have been interested.

just wondering if this is any relation to Fred & Lulu Pickup or John & Isabella Pickup who settled in Alberta in late 1800s, early 1900? 

(Haven't read the whole thread as its soooooooo long!)
