Hi Chris I see you're having to wait a long time too for your disc. I've been waiting 5 weeks now and contacted my co-ordinator who tells me that Archive Books, where the discs come from, have quite a backlog - it's all the new subscribers I think!!! I've already ordered another one in the hope that the first one comes soon and I will have finished that by the time the second one arrives!! Von

Hi Chris, where were you wanting to do for freecen? When you get your disc you will be busy! I'm doing BMD too, deaths at the moment so only do a bit at a time. It is a long time waiting, hope it comes soon. Have you emailed to say it hasn't arrived?

Hi Ann If you mean you're going on to a new Parish you enter the name of the Parish in column A and then carry on across the line with your first schedule number, address, etc. for that Parish. I hope I've understood you correctly. If not, post again and I'll try and help. Von

That's the one Jeanette ! I'm something of an expert in the field. It's clouding over here now so I may need to find something a little less energetic to do lolol. Rick.

Rick Is that the sort of gardening where you sit in your deck chair with a beer planning what your going to do! lol My garden fence needs painting but there's a chilly wind blowing today. Think I'll stay indoors and clean the conservatory instead. But then again I might not! Jeanette


Rick Report 21 May 2004 11:22

It's a beautiful day here ! Am working from home this morning but have the afternoon off. Will do a few lines of transcribbling later and then go & do some "gardening" I think. Rick.

Hi Ann, didn't come across bossy! Raining today so good excuse to site and transcribe!

Hi Jo Hope I didn't sound bossy --didn't mean to. What's tidy??? Who can have a tidy house and be on here and transcribe??? Ann

Jo Mine looked beautiful until I got to this enumerator! He can't write, spell or fill a census form in properly. God knows how he got the job. As for tidyness of houses - just don't go there! lol Jeanette


Unknown Report 20 May 2004 23:42

Jeanette, I dont think its meant to look tidy! LOL. Does your census look tidy? Mine sure doesn't. My house should but not if I get on here! Best wishes, Jo.

Thanks Jo and Ann That's what I've done but I thought I'd ask as it looks such a flaming mess now with all those crosses and hyphens all over the place. Think I was hoping I could tidy it up a bit! Jeanette


Unknown Report 20 May 2004 23:15

Ann, I didnt read what jeanette had wrote properly. Yes dont put anything in unless it says a marital status. Must be time for bed!

Ann L from Darlo

Ann L from Darlo Report 20 May 2004 23:08

Hi Jeannette I was told not to put a marital status unless it says so,don't presume. And if there is nothing in for the street to put a hyphen --if it has a ditto then you follow on with the above street name. My reply to my query I put on my last message---to put a U in the H column as it must be an uninhabited house. Hope all that sounds clear Ann


Unknown Report 20 May 2004 22:46

Hi Jeanette, I would put the marital status as its written. If you are doing 1861 i'm sure they could still get married very young with consent. Will have to check up but I think for girls as young as 12. It can be very strange looking into so many peoples lives cant it? Good luck everyone.
