    Missing grandfather

    Tonge is an outlying area of Bolton, in Greater Manchester, England. The name is supposed to be derived from the Old English "tang" or "twang" meaning a fork. Probably the explanation why the name is popular there

    Y-DNA (& Autosomal DNA)

    Posting this snippet from a seasoned user of all the DNA sites who I follow I regard ethnicity estimates as for entertainment only (with the possible exception of those from Living DNA But I may have to revise my views on Ancestry's ethnicity estimates - they're in the process of updating their estimates following an increase in the size of their reference panel from 3000 to 16000, and the difference this makes to my results is impressive.... the new figures look much more realistic. And my brother's estimate, previously very different from mine, is now very similar. He goes on to say though.. But no matter how accurate these new estimates they're going to be of more help to family historians in the New World than those in Europe

    I never had a subscription but I used to buy it every month and I found it to be the best out of the group of similar mags. Very interesting, some really useful articles which I have clipped and if I remember correctly it is relevant to this end of Britain. It is very down to earth and not stuffed with ads as some of them are, worth the money in other words. After around a year or 18 months it starts repeating itself and so I stopped buying it.

    Uncovered on Shaw St

    The Liver Bird was first blue and was used by Everton FC in the early days (Everton club came first you know) But it is actually the symbol of the city and not one team or the other and should be used by both or none. Perhaps one of each colour In 1668 the Earl of Derby gifted the town a silver-gilt mace engraved with a "leaver". In his 1688 work The Academie of Armorie, Randle Holme records the arms of Liverpool as a blue "lever" upon a silver field. Leaver bird is a Spoonbill added 2 minutes later What is the new shop there Robbob? that was quick
