She did PM me once.
She thought the thread was gong to be deleted so maybe she gave up.

I think I would have wondered what ~I'd done if it was me.

Penny Report 5 Jul 2012 07:37

It was something along the lines of

Emily Blackler married William Hocking and approx date
and an approx birth date for eMILY.

My first post establishes correct birth year for Emily ,,,,and I take it from there

Absolutely nothing to warrent RR'ing!

Wrong board possibly? Hey, a reason to delete? erm NO!


jax Report 5 Jul 2012 07:26

I dont know what the OP said but cannot understand why this has been rr'd

Lets hope GR reads this would be a shame to lose all this info because someone had a twitchy finger

In reply to you message, Deborah.

I have absolutely no idea why you request has been sent to GR for review. No, you have done nothing wrong ( and I dont think I have either)

I am genuinely mystified

Can anyone shed any light please?
