Hello KJMarsden,
Yes, the rules on rootschat are that you can't send a personal message as long as you haven't had three posts on the thread. You have got two, so if you answer to my post you will have a third one and it will work. After your third post you will be able to send personal messages to any of the participants and you can exchange personal information that should not become public.

Regards

If folks are still living it is best to use the pm function but if not please use the topics and reply button to contact other members.

Histres one of your pm's bounced back to us as the member has changed email address, If is a public message I do try to trace the member and pass the message on but this does not happen for pm's.

Regards

Sarah

Hello Sarah,
Can you please give me a hint whose pm couldn't be sent successfully. I can then decide whether I can send its content on the public platform. Thank you.

Hi Histres,

I can not remember, it was this morning I get though over 200 messages a day I think it was around the 6th.  If a members email address is no longer working I leave a note underneath the profile name

"I am sorry but my email address is no longer working"

Sometimes I am able to find old members sometimes not.

Regards

Sarah

I've just been given a copy of the newspaper obituary, with photograph, of Frederick Meyer (1830-1916) of Kunzelsau, pork butcher of Wellingborough.
If anyone is interested, please PM.

Thanks - my cousin just found it,  I was thrilled to get it, see the shop and my GGpa George Haag !!
 I had a question which I hope someone may know the answer,  re why did so many  German butchers move from Wurttemburg in the mid 1800's - anyone know ?
TIA

Hello Georgina,
Welcome to the thread. I have some answers to your question, as I am researching this special migration movement of pork butchers to Great Britain on the German side. I live in the Hohenlohe area where most of these migrants started in the 19th century to explore new spheres of life and find better economical conditions abroad. Eberbach is just about 13 miles from where I live.
You will find more information and also the answers under the following link:

It's the text of a talk that I gave at Surrey University at Guildford in 2019.
Best wishes
