    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.

    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.

    ​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

    On  http://www.sheffieldsoldierww1.co.uk/ 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?

    ​As Richard has said, the Moderators are equally fed up with the situation, there's only 1 man in charge.

    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

    This is a query I received via Sheffieldsoldier

    My paternal Great grandfather owned a hairdressers shop on Pond Street in Sheffield, my Grandmother always told stories of how her father was presumed dead in France and turned up injured some time later, he survived the war and lived into the 1950's, I cannot find any listings for the surname Seffers, the surname is German and he was the son of a German speaking mother, can you help .

    Can anybody turn anything up for this guy?
