Floaters are normally harmless.I have loads of them,and they are common in short sighted people,but you do have to watch out for a sudden increase in the number and or size of them,possibly accompanied by flashing lights,which can mean a detached retina,and that means you should attend the...
There was a story in my family that my great grandfather was awarded a royal warrant for building a lighthouse off the Norfolk coast,but i have never been able to sort out if there is any truth at all in this.
I understand ,according to Kew,that by the time he had joined the family building...

I'm not sure what the PPR charge for a five year search,but i am going to the PPR on Friday,and could have a look for you,if you give me the details.

A genesreunited contact of mine,who turned out to be a very distant cousin,and had asked to see my tree, took the whole thing and put it on her website,only telling me afterwards! At least she credited me with the info she had put on her site.

My great grandmother married her 30 year old first cousin in 1872,and said her age was 17,when in fact she was barely 15.

You could try the website www.agra.org.uk,which has details of independant researchers,who undertake all sorts of research,including translation of wills.One of them translated two c15 wills for me,as my Medieval Latin is not up to much !! They are not cheap,though.
If you are still wanting info on those two possible wills,i am going to the Principal Probate Registry on Friday.This holds the index for post 1858 wills,which can be searched free,and copies of wills can be ordered online for £5 each.
If you give me the names , dates, and places of...

It's not my usual "act of kindness", but i did go once to West Norwood Cemetery ,to photograph a grave for someone,and i found that the headstone,and many others in the area,had been removed,which was upsetting for the family,and also a shame for such an historic Victorian cemetery to be...
