Now you've done it! You've set me off on adding to the wikipedia article on Salford Lads Club, and I've just found it could be useful as another resource for you genealogy bods. See the link I just found here. http://www.lhi.org.uk/projects_directory/projects_by_region/north_west/manchester/the_salford_lads_club_quaker_girl_bazaar/index.html

I was asked if I knew if any of the Manchester Regiment were involved with Buffalo Bill in his Manchester shows ...... ! ( possibly the Congress of Rough Riders of the World )  ::)

This is the closest I could get .... does anybody know anybody who was part of the Manchester Troop ??

I just found a picture of part of the totem pole I mentioned on here some time ago at http://rmhh.co.uk/mliners.html There are also lots of nice pictures of Manchester docks too.

Hi all, I can see that this thread hasnít been used in a long while but hoping someone might be able to point me in the right direction.

Iím helping some friends research a possible link between their families and Buffalo Billís Wild West Show. My friends are Romanies and they have a long standing family story about how some of the Sioux Indians lived with them in Salford and later travelled with them. Iíve seen recently that some Sioux disappeared during or just after the Battle of Little Big Horn - I understand they were over here at the time - could they have disappeared with the Romany Gypsies?

Please can anyone tell me the best place to look to find more information about their stay on Salford and their disappearance?

Thanks
Jill

Glasgow's Ghost Shirt which was on display at Kelvingrove Museum for many years was returned to the Lakota Sioux.

Thank you Skoosh, I found the article very sad and moving - what chance did the Native Indians have against guns and the massive force of the white man.
