    Fantastic trip around our town. So many familiar places and a few new ones - that massage place is one I haven't seen before

    Y-DNA (& Autosomal DNA)

    Good! It must be a relatively quiet period right now I got a test result back last week which was done in 20 days! That's a record time in my experience! My current sub ends in August so I'm going to look around for their cheapest renewals shortly

    Another Stabbing!

    I hope so, it's shocking how he died but not to know who killed him or why it happened is cruel. Eight months waiting for answers is a long time

    Another Stabbing!

    https://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/liverpool-news/adam-ellison-prescot-murder-crimewatch-14830188 This case is still unsolved and was featured on Crime Watch last week. The young man who was murdered was Adam Ellison, I know his Mum, Joyce, well, she and his Dad and sisters and girlfriend are devastated that no one has been charged so far. Adam was a decent, ordinary inoffensive young man who was hardworking and had never been in trouble with the police. He worked at Tesco in Prescot and was a lad any mother would have been proud of. I'm just bumping the post in the hope that it might help remind people that those responsible are still out there in the community.

    Y-DNA (& Autosomal DNA)

    I haven't used Legacy but I have done an autosomal test with Ancestry and found it be extremely accurate and useful. I've traced (formerly unknown) relatives in the US and been in touch with a number of them so expanding my family tree exponentially. I've no qualms about security or some of the scare stories one hears because if it helps bring a criminal to justice or solve some tragic murder (what's not to like?) It's the best thing I've spent money on in a long time. I'm totally hooked and quite impressed by the whole experience and have only heard the same from everyone else I know who's taken a test.

    Thanks for the info, my grandchildren might like it but I'll hold my judgement for now 🙁

    Yes I noticed earlier, it's huge and taking up virtually the rest of the site. I'm not convinced a bowling alley is wanted or needed in this town but we'll see..

    Looking UP on Merton Bank Road

    Now you mention it...that makes more sense. I seem to have memories of those overhead buckets across St Helens during my childhood. I once thought I'd remembered some near Bold colliery too...funny what parts of the memory can do over time

    Looking UP on Merton Bank Road

    I remember the buckets Rob mentioned and the overhead pipe across the road and having to take a detour when the road under the bridge flooded. It was part of Pilks top works (Cowley Hill) dumping ground for waste materials just like other parts of the town was used by them to dump noxious chemicals and waste....wonder if they ever contributed to the cost of clearing up the sites they damaged before they shut up shop and left St Helens

    Sutton Library

    Me and my kids used the library at Sutton for years from about 1975 to 1995 when we lived at Bold. It was a great library, well stocked and of traditional design. It looked a bit like a church from the main road with the entrance in Goodban St and double swing doors up a couple of steps to enter the building. Couldn't believe my eyes when I drove through Sutton a few years later and it was gone!

  12. Found my old Android tablet and it's charging right now so hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to try that app.

    St helens cemetry records

    Here's a map which shows the sections, it might help http://www.sthelensrollsofhonour.co.uk/cemetery.php
  14. Aren't these apps only available on phones? I always use my desktop so haven't seen them but I'd like to try it
  15. They should leave the beggars alone, some are genuinely homeless and show the face of the govts savage cuts. The few who are faking it are easily spotted by those who watch them and report their daily activities They only get a pittance anyhow most people ignore them and walk on by as if they're invisible
