Technical Help / LibreOffcie Writer help please
« on: Thursday 26 May 22 22:38 BST (UK)  »
Hi There

I have in the last few weeks started using LibreOffcie Writer and have a small issue which I need help with. Could anyone please advise me what the blue symbols are in my document, as they appear in all my documents now and how I may delete them. I am guessing I may have clicked on something accidentally but I have no idea how to resolve this issue.

Thank you

Regards lil

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Transcribing help please
« on: Tuesday 08 February 22 06:35 GMT (UK)  »
Hi There

I am hoping you might be able to help decipher a Maori name for. NZ BMD image. The image including the date - the word starts as Whare. In the second image the name is listed as Wharenanakia on the NZBMD website. but the WH does not look the same as the image with the date. It is possible the name starts with WH but I have no other documentation for this person and am about to ask NZ BMD for a search.  I have found Wharenanakia is a Maori name online and I am hoping someone may confirm or see another spelling.

Regards

Australia / NSW research
« on: Thursday 16 December 21 00:05 GMT (UK)  »
Hi there

I have a small amount of Australian research knowledge. I have found a NSW bmd record for Jane Scott Bett who died 1983, listed as Jeane Scot Bett. The 1980 Australian electoral roll has Jane residing at Masonic Towers, Lowe Road, Hornsby. I have looked online for historical probates and found nothing under her name and also cemeteries in Hornsby but they don't appear searchable. I know I can purchase her death certificate but would like to find more details first, if possible. What can you suggest?

Regards
