Re: Free marriage records on Ancestry.com

Not sure if any of you are aware but Family search will now scan in and email you a copy of the certificates if you have the correct film number (they won't search for you). I've done this and it was a very fast service (free), for a relatives marriage in New York in 1926.: https://familysearch.org/...

Re: STUCK!! with my family tree

Re: Knitting pattern for Kobo ereader

Thanks Kath yes it would be good to have a more sturdy cover when taking it out and about but for now it will just be in the house so more of a dust type cover thing I suppose!

Re: Chocolate wrapper template.

Good luck with the wrappers. I decided one year that instead of party bags I would buy a little gift and the children could have a lucky dip. (It was a football party and they all were given medals). When everyone had got a gift and a bit of cake one child said "Wheres my party bag?" I ex...
