Yorkshire (West Riding) / Parents for Hirst and Holt?
« on: Saturday 30 May 09 16:00 BST (UK)  »
In my wife's "tree" I have a John Hirst, Fancy Weaver, (b. 1812-14, Cumberworth) marrying Elizabeth Holt, Bobbin Winder, (b. abt. 1812-14, Clayton West) on 9th June, 1833.

Children are:   Thomas, b. 1835
      Mary A, b. 1836
      Robert, b. 1839
      Sophia, b. 1840
      Hannah Holt, b. 15th July, 1845, Denby.

Any help regarding John and Elizabeth's parents would be greatly appreciated.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Help With Initials, Please. Completed.

Can anyone tell me what the initials stand for in Mildred Fowler's entry in the 1841 census?

I think they are F.L., but someone else will probably have a better idea.


Technical Help / "Lost" Hard Drive Completed
« on: Sunday 24 May 09 19:00 BST (UK)  »
A friend of mine (really!) had problems with his computer which he thought best rectified by reinstalling XP SP2.

After the initial configuration check all he got were repeated errors stating "XP setup cannot copy x file. Press escape to skip file or f3 to quit".

I took my original XP disk to his house, and got the same result.

Thinking it might be his CD-Rom at fault I put his hard drive into my machine to try and load XP.

All I can get is "Hard Drive Not Found".

1. The drive is not showing up in the BIOS set-up.
2. The drive is jumpered correctly (according to the diagram).
3. The drive was  working, allegedly, albeit very slowly, and with some functions, like sound and connectivity, intermittent.

Putting it plainly, is the drive knackered, or does anyone have any other ideas, please?

Roger The Hat.
