Northumberland Lookup Requests / Re: Frederic Rivans
« on: Wednesday 04 April 18 09:29 BST (UK)  »
I have seen a letter which states that a person born in Egypt has British nationality descending from a Frederic Rivans, born in Newcastle in 1852.

I can find no person of that name in Ancestry or any other on line source

Technical Help / Movie Maker
« on: Sunday 25 March 18 15:17 BST (UK)  »
I'm running Windows 7, I know it isn't the most up to-date but it works for me. I wish to use Movie Maker  basically to stitch videos together. Where can I find instructions on how to use it. There doesn't appear to be a HELP icon.

Maybe I should explain where I got the entry for Hutchison Taylor from

The information came from the Galston Old Parish records, or rather what I call the "Missing" records.
It's a long story but briefly, whoever made the micro film records missed out 14 pages, from 1818 to 1820, over 100 births! I got the people in Edinburgh to check out my theory and I was correct. Subsequently they sent me copies of the missing 14 pages. Mass celibacy, my ancestors???? Never.

All subsequent lookups  and or extracts based on the micro film will miss those entries

Sorry your email address is not shewing on your posting. As I said I don't appear to be able to send an attachment, what I have sent is an EXACT transcription of the entry in the Galston OPRs

Sorry I can't help in your search for the marriage - I assume you have used an LDS facility?.

However I can add one more child to your list

"Hutchinson, lawful Son of William Taylor
 Weaver in Galston and Barbara Hutchinson was
Born 19th Bapt 20th Feb 1819"

I have a photo copy of the actual OPR but my computer skills are not  too good (Rubbish actually).
When I try to add it as an attachment if fills the whole screen

Lanarkshire / Re: Tunnels near Finneston St, Glasgow

Sorry, these tunnels you suggest are nowhere near the tunnels I'm referring to, also they are too small to take a train

Lanarkshire / Tunnels near Finneston St, Glasgow

As the suburban train leaves Glasgow Queen street it is initially underground. Once it emerges just west of Finneston street there appears to be tunnels  on each side of the line. Does anyone have any idea what they are, sewers? burns? I assume they run into the Clyde

Hi Gadget many thanks for all your replies, I'll have a go at your latest instructions, you really have spent a lot of time explaining to a geriatric. The old grey cells ain't what they used to be.
