I generally use Firefox as my web browser & trying to print from it only lets me print the first page of a thread. If I use Internet Explorer, all pages print as required, so it suggests it's a Firefox issue. The operating system on my laptop is Windows 7, rather than later versions of Windows...
Hi Radiorails. Thanks for your reply.
The forum thread I'm trying to print is a thread which I started. As the Forum Rules state that I own the copyright to my messages, surely printing a thread which I started isn't an infringement? Other genealogy forums enable printing of threads.
Ah, thanks mikejee, that's very helpful.
Comparing the 1965 roads with todays roads on Google Maps/Street View shows that the whole area was recently redeveloped then. Does anyone know why? Were these houses the council houses which I think were known as Boot houses, with structural...
Does anyone recall Kinlet Grove in Northfield? It doesn't appear in online street maps. There is a Kinlet Avenue although Google Streetview shows this to be a recently built road of dwellings.
Where was Kinlet Grove in relation to existing roads or Kinlet Avenue? What happened to Kinlet...

Thanks pjmburns & carolina for your replies.
I do have access to Ancestry & have checked their online Electoral Registers for 47 Kenelm Road for 1945, 1950 & 1955.

Hope I've posted this in the correct place!

Thanks Kathsutton 46 & sospiri.
The location at 2A Lozells Street fits in with what the location my mother described - near to Lozells Road & near Burbury Street.
If anyone has any more information about them, or even a photo, that would be great.
I'm trying to trace a company which made vices at a factory which was in Baltimore Road, Perry Barr in the early 1950's.
I believe their factory was situated in Baltimore Road in the vicinity of Montana Avenue, but on the opposite side of Baltimore Road & probably opposite number 44 Baltimore...
I'm trying to trace Hannah's Greetings Card Wholesalers of Lozells, who I understand had premises off Lozells Road, maybe in the vicinity of Burbury Street.
My mother worked there in the early 1950's, until 1955.
If anyone can tell me the address of their premises & any other information about...
Thanks very much carolina & bewdley, that resolves the 1901 Census mystery! I wondered if it had been mis-transcribed in the index, but I can see on the Census image that it looks as though the enumerator has the name written as "Trawley" rather than "Srawley".
Could you tell me please...
Hope someone can help please!
I’m trying to find information about my ancestor James R Srawley:
Where was he in the 1901 Census (I can’t find him)?
Where was he between 1911 & 1919 & after 1939?
When & where did he die? I can’t find a death entry for him on FreeBMD.
What I do know is...
