Thank You All...

As the forum is about to shut down, I would just like to say 'Thank You' to all those who have helped me over the three years I've been a member. Your breadth of knowledge has been, at times, awe-inspiring, and I've lost count of the brick walls that have been demolished because of you all.
If I don't happen to come across any of you in other forums in the future, then I wish ...

Help with age and dress. Is he wearing a shirt?

The Photographer was in Perth from 1868 - 1878 as far as I can discover. I am trying to work out which relatives they are from their age.

How old do they look, can anyone age them by the clothing, style of photo etc? What year was the photograph taken?

Is the man wearing a striped shirt? If I am correct he was a Gamekeeper, if so, would he dress as grandly as this?

Thank ...

She is well documented in her marriage on 27th November 1827 in St. Giles Without Cripplegate, London to George Parrish (1803 to 1880) I have ...

Missing/lost files at TNA

Researchers might like to know about this from the User Advisory Group in March 2020 before the Coronavirus hit us. It relates to missing or lost files after they had been transferred back from TNA to departments, it has been a scandal for years and that digital versions should be supplied to departments if they could not attend TNA. In my view only files needed for legal reasons should be allowed out of TNA. Shame ...
