  4. Windows 10

    On a Positive note I use Windows 10 with no issues. I have used it all year under the Beta testing programme, it was a clean install. All my software seems to be compatible (Office 2010, Adobe CS 6 etc) I have upgrade my laptop using the Windows 7 >> Windows 10 route, that on the whole seems ok.

    Joseph appears in DeRuvigny's Roll of Honour. This is a 5 volume set of over 26000 biographies compiled after WW1 by the 9th Marquis of Ruvigny and Raineval Available on Ancestry    
  6. Francis Frith photos of Sheffield

    Just had a quick look, I think most of the Sheffield ones we will have seen before as B&W postcards. I have an Ancestry subscription, so no problems if you need a search for an actual location.

  9. Who was Sheffield's last Tommy

    Found an MIC for Harry Clethers, is this your husbands grandfather, how do you link him  to your Harry
  10. Who was Sheffield's last Tommy

    ​Hi Jenny Just what is required, slightly confused with Clethro and Clithero. Is Harry (of the 3 brothers) Clithero on the 1911 census? I cant see any records for Harry (your husbands grandfather) to show his military service Stuart  
  11. On we have records of upwards of 31000 Sheffield men who fought in WW1. Many men still go unrecorded, many just came back and settled back into normal life, some came back and suffered for many years. Sapper Stanley Clayton died 18/4/2000 at the age of 105, was he Sheffield's last Tommy. Do you know anybody who survived him? Did you have a relative who fought in WW1 and survived the war? Did you have a relative who died in WW1?  
  12. Redesign Problems

    ​As Richard has said, the Moderators are equally fed up with the situation, there's only 1 man in charge.
  13. Instantly Killed by Motor Car

    Sheffield Evening Telegraph 5/7/15
  14. Maps on eBay

    I wonder what happened to ours, I knew I should not have lent them to that bloke in Harrogate :-)  
  15. 53 Hawksley Avenue

    Can anybody do me a 1911 look up for 53 Hawksley Avenue, I believe Find My Past lets you do an address lookup, Ancestry does not (I think). I am hoping it is a family called Earnshaw or Farnshaw Thanks in advance
