The Stay Safe Board / Price hikes
« on: Sunday 22 March 20 08:25 GMT (UK)  »
My goodness me, have some people no shame.  I found a listing on ebay for 12 boxes of Kleenex Ultra Soft tissues.

Price being asked - £77.85 that is £9.34 per box.

Outrageous  :o  I reported the item but I have no doubt that there are many other items being sold at hugely inflated prices.

These sellers are of course taking advantage of the shortage of items due to others panic buying.

At least supermarkets can't do that as far as I am aware.

You may be interested in this article I found published on the 18th March.

The Common Room / Walter England, wife & son
« on: Monday 17 February 20 21:25 GMT (UK)  »
Can anyone find a record of Walter England born 1866, wife Henrietta born 1868 and son Walter Frederick born 1890, travelling from the USA, probably New York, to the UK.  Around 1895.

I think Henrietta died on board the ship as I can find no death registered in the UK deaths.  Walter remarries in 1897.

I would like to see if Henrietta is mentioned on the passenger list from USA to UK.  Is there a separate list for actual arrivals to the UK?

I have no sub to Ancestry so can't check any possibilities on there.

Thank you.

The Common Room / GRO Online Index
« on: Thursday 21 March 19 07:12 GMT (UK)  »
Have the GRO dropped offering the option of a pdf or certifcate on their online index?

I was searching the births for someone and noticed that there are no buttons for pdf or certificate on the record.

Have I missed some announcement regarding this?  I know the prices have gone up.

Would someone be kind enough to access a record for me on Ancestry's Timeline?

I'm looking as Ancestry are giving free access to certain records but this one isn't free.

Below is the info that I am looking at:-

Timeline from Ancestry family tree

Gilbert Leslie White
Dora May Strong
1895 Gloucestershire England
Somerset England
Gloucestershire England

The above are my grandparents and I am curious to know what the information is.

The one below that one appears to have decided that my grandfather was born in the USA!!

Many thanks to anyone who looks for me.  :) :)

Technical Help / Game Playing Problems
« on: Wednesday 17 October 18 18:58 BST (UK)  »
I currently use the Royal Games website to play games.  I have been having trouble lately with the website saying I haven't got the latest flash player, but I have.

Sometimes I can make the games work by clicking the Skip It button but it is not working this time.

Below should be screenshots showing what comes up and that I have the latest flash player on my computer.

How can I solve this please?
