    How To Print Forum Threads

    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...

    How To Print Forum Threads

    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. I want...

    Kinlet Grove, Northfield

    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...

    Kinlet Grove, Northfield

    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...

    James Robert Srawley & Louisa Elizabeth Srawley (nee Yarnall) of B'ham & Warwickshire

    Vice Manufacturer, Baltimore Road, Perry Barr

    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.

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...

    James R Srawley (Born c1878 in Birmingham) – 1901 Census Lookup

    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...

    James Gardner & Family - 1861 Census Lookup

    Thanks MWS. It occurs to me that Emila/Emily's baptism took place on 26 Feb 1865 & her death was registered Q2 in the same year, so she had died before July, therefore aged 4 years. Unless it was a sudden death (eg accident), she may have already been sick & close to death when she was...
