  1. Hiya. I'm really interested in pidgeons, I've always loved them and wondered how do I get into learning about how to keep them and look after them ect... so that I could possibly set up my own little loft at some point in the future. Is there any society in Sheffield I can join or someone I can help for a few hours a week? Thank you
  2. Aww we got our dog from those pidgeon lofts. I was about 5 (I'm 38 now) a collie crossed with a Springer spaniel, she was only one in the litter that was black and white with short hair, all the rest were brown and white and curly haired. She was shaking at the back and all the others were bounding about. She had a docked tail but it was too low so she basically had no tail at all. I named her 'Pirate-Rog' My dad had her for 17/18 years. She used to go all round town and Hillsborough with him before she got too old and had to stay home; everyone knew her. People used to buy her things.

  4. Thank you So much to everyone who has posted here since I bumped this old thread the other day! Yes I was very confused about the American connection but you are all correct and I was wrong! They are my ancestors! I wish I could find out more about what happened to them afterwards... Thank you to the people who posted info and explanations and newspaper clippings! There's some documents here I just uploaded http://imgur.com/gallery/OfBXUqr
  5. It's not the Sheffield UK Patnicks. Those records are from Pennsylvania USA. My sister is sending me our family naturalisation documents. I'm going to know for sure in a few hours
  6. Thank you. I'm not signing up for that site though they take money for nothing. Last time had to get bank to get my subscription back. It's waste of money. I also thought those sites anyone can add anything into them? So someone who thought the name was Lapatnick could have entered it. I still do not believe the name was ever Lapatnick. My dad says 'Who is Dora?" He says it's not familiar, it ever so slightly rings a bell but he's not familiar with anyone called Dora. They didn't face prejudice and they arrived in this country wealthier than most. Not all refugees are poor!
  7. Ok. I'm asking someone if they can show me again. It's years since I saw. My dad had original documents at one time. I was sure I recall it said Patnick. 🙂 'La' is not very Russian sounding at all. I have always known them to be the Patnicks. My grandma was Hetty.
  8. I've seen those forms at my dad's. They said Patnick. That Jewish database says Patnick also. There was no La. They didn't face prejudice and they arrived in this country wealthier than most. Not all refugees are poor! It's my own family, although we were the 'poor relations'. They have always been very middle class. I don't doubt they worked extremely hard, they did, but they owned a lot of land and property around the Gleadless area which no one will really talk of. All the sons were given a business and all the daughters a house. All sold off.
  9. You must be confused. Hetty Patnick is my grandmother and the name was Patnick not Lapatnick. She married David Lapp. Have you mixed the names together somehow because I have never ever heard of Lapatnicks, just the Lapps and Patnicks and they were seperate lines joined by marriage.
