    St Helens Rolls Of Honour.

    You must've been identified as being a hacker again Ste. Not that you are one. I'm hunting through the logs to find and remove your IP... Is it OK now?
  2. You might be able to use it on an Android or iPod tablet, but I don't think there is a Windows version. It logs into Ancestry and uses your tree.
  3. A bit of frivolous fun. Have you had anyone interesting popping up in it? Latest one for me was Emily Bronte. Previous ones to that were Jon Hamm (never heard of him - and ditto a few of those that follow) Mitt Romney, Kevin Bacon (which did look a bit credible), Gregg Toland, Philo T. Farnsworth, Lizzie Borden, Anna Turthill Harrison, Lyman Beecher, William Blake, James Cook, Aaron Burr, Abigail Fillmore, and Charles Laughton (!).

    How are you geting on with your Family Tree?

    This Daily Mail article says that those of us in the north west have an average of 20,000 cousins. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5653851/NA-researchers-say-Britons-average-17-000-living-blood-relatives.html It's somewhere near right, I have nearly 21,000, but I'm at the lower end in terms of the people that I'm sharing results with. I know someone who has nearly 39,000.

    The bears paw inn in Westfield st

    I wish that we could. I've just looked at Paul's 'St Helens Pubs' group on Facebook and they don't seem to have any either.

    Canal Side - Where was it?

    Can't do any better than Ratty for 'Canal Side'. It might have been near Canal Place - or it might have been on another stretch. There are a few places in old St Helens that are hard to locate. Three that spring to mind where ancestors lived are Cotton Yard (somewhere on Croppers Hill), Roughleys Lane (somewhere up near Cowley Hill Lane) and Browns Lane (somewhere near Windle City). They can't be found on any old maps, so welcome to our world of puzzlement. added 3 minutes later Canal Place

    Lowe House RC Burial Registers

    No, I don't think that it's a new 'with it'. I've seen the same sort of thing going on for a long time in various publications. Why does the multi-paragraph quotation rule exist? Anyway, back to Lowe House..
  11. Liam, see the part that says "Please do not post duplicate topics (posts with identical or near identical content) in different forums. All but one will be deleted." in the forums guidelines.

    No, it's to do with putting 'Lol!' in a post, when a post itself creates all of these columns in a table row.
