The Common Room / Just clicked with the 1921 Census
« on: Wednesday 02 February 22 14:56 GMT (UK)  »
Wanted to say thank you once again to the contributors on RC for all their knowledge and queries and answers re the 1921 Census.

I've been looking for my father Alexander Bradbury (born 1906) but he wasn't with his parents and great aunt Elsie, where he was on the 1911 Census. There was an Alice who I was really excited about and have spent a few weeks searching for. However reading your 1921 comments thoroughly I understand there were many mistranscriptions because it was done in India.

My father at age 15 was probably known as Alec! Hence Alice.

Thank you both.

We've been lucky so far and shall do as you suggest.

We can't forward the email as it's just disappeared!

Amazon account now showing refunds for all our recent orders too, saying they were not delivered.

Changing everything now.

We've had a couple of suspicious threatening emails over the past couple of days. Blackmail really. If we pay up in bitcoin they will leave us alone. Deleted everything but now our email account has gone "haywire" and my Facebook account is blocked because of suspicious activity. Is it Putin?

Anyone else in the same predicament?


Love the coloured one too. What a lot of clever people you are.

Gadget, do we really share a name? I never knew all these years!

I was born, brought up and married in Birmingham and those houses look strangely very familiar. Are you able to tell me the district?

There is at least one living relative mentioned in the other person's tree which is a pity.

Pheno, I really don't mind about you using "I really don't" so often.  ;) ;)

I'm sure we've chatted in the past on RC.

Milliepede, that's so sad and annoying._
Creasegirl, I DO have gypsies (tinklers) in my tree but that hasn't popped up yet!

I'm so glad I've never paid for Ancestry subscription and never will do now after hearing about the cheats out there.

Annie and all other kind contributors
As you can see I made an error in copying the name! Ha Ha, we must be all guilty of a little mistake but this family tree business is intriguing.
It seems this person added this tree quite recently, during the past few months, and in his gallery of ancestor's connections there is a painting of Robert the Bruce. Wow, to think I might be related to him! Pity, I should have preferred Mary Queen of Scots but maybe she is there somewhere too?

At the end of the day it's just so sad to read your deceased brother's details along with other deceased close family members, when this person does not have my permission or even know me. I noticed that this part of his family tree had been imported from a Boyd family tree so he must be collecting trees, as has been stated before.

I suspect this has been mentioned before - maybe many times.

During lockdown my local library has allowed online access to Ancestry Library Edition. I've not bothered with A much before, always preferring FindMyPast. Noticing a family tree with my members in it I was shocked to see all the errors the person had quoted. Also, nowhere could I find how they linked these into their tree anyway. Just saddened to realised this person must have accessed my tree somehow and scrambled it all up! I didn't delve too deeply into it in case I also featured therein too!

Why do people do this.? The family tree was called Cobham Family Tree and I've never heard of anyone with that name on my tree.

Bumblebee, the same thing happened to me but because our GP had spoken to OH some weeks ago we knew they were preparing to get "set up to vaccinate" so I ignored the NHS letter and, sure enough, within a couple of days we both had a phone call from GP practice.
