Thanks Janette, that should sort the Houchen house number out.  :)


Chris, I have PM'd the information from the funeral director's records in respect of Henry HOUCHEN.


That now leaves the visit to the cemetery. Maybe this weekend; the weather is looking good.

[Re the house number. I meant to show either 35 or 85. Now amended.]

I'm referring to posts back in 2014, about the Houchen family emigrating to NZ, originally from Norfolk.  I want to be in touch with ChrisWd (rootschat id) who was living at Wereham House, the family home of the Houchen family in Norfolk, UK. 
Rootschat members Minniehaha, Janette, KHP, Trish, were all contributing to the post. 
I found the post again by searching for Susan Margaret Houchen (one of Edward Houchen's children).  Edward Houchen and family emigrated to NZ in 1884.
Please could someone help me with how to send a message to ChrisWd - he appears in the post I'm talking about back in 2014.
Thank you, sorry but I'm not sure about how to use Rootschat so thought this was best thing to do!

Hi Andra,

Welcome to Rootschat.   :D  You will need to reply to this message twice, a smiley or just a Hi will do, then you can click on Chriswd's name, and send a PM - then you can swap emails or personal details.

Best of luck.

Cheers
KHP
