I keep getting emails from Findmypast, though I have not renewed my subscription for years. Today I actually followed a link on the message, for once, and found that they have lots of articles on subjects from Tips For Reading Old Handwriting to Finding Murderers and Maniacs.

You don't need to join to read the articles, they are open to all.

Looks interesting - will pass on to my Family History Group tomorrow! Thanks Elegran

I don't think I have any murderers or maniacs hiding in my tree but I do have a couple of mysterious vanishings . . .

Thanks for the thread Elegran, so much of interest on there.

Thank you for that Elegran DH now has a big smile on his face. By following some of the links he has found an amazing amount of information for which he has been searching.

On the other hand I am starting to twitch as I realise that maybe the garage reorganisation, which needs to take place before the electricians arrive, is now going to take second place if I am not careful! hmm

You should have waited to tell him until after the garage was reorganised.

Just spent 2 hours on here, tracked down so much info, got quite exciting. Will be back on tomorrow. Thanks again.

I have found some too, and I've only been on the Irish census link!

What I really want to know is who made my 17yr old Grandma pregnant in late 1914. Unfortunately I do not think that will ever be discovered. That gave me a lovely Dad though.

Start of WW1, perhaps he couldn't marry her
