You're welcome. :-)

What happened to you other thread looking for a marriage for Alice - I just posted it and it's vanished?

Its ok I deleted it as I found it with the other spelling dont want people to waste their time looking for something I already found, her surname was spelt with a "e " instead of an " a " thanks for taking the time
