    Ackery Family - Glyngorrwg, Glam.

    Oh, you angel, thank you - no wonder I couldn't find it. Common sense should have told me that if first names are not spelled correctly it could be done with the surname. Thanks again

    Unreliable Census?

    I know this is going way back to your comment, but since then I have been transcribing census records and I can see why some of us have difficulty.

    Wally moments.

    I keep having a 'wally moment' which is so stupid. I live in a block of flats and have to hold a fob against a key pad to gain entry through the main door. The number of times I have held that fob against the lift button and then wondered why the lift hasn't arrived - doh!!
