  1. I'm want to buy a plain backed small oval picture frame no more than 6cms high if possible. It is to be fitted inside a wooden box lid to hold a photograph. Can anybody tell me where I may be able to buy one in Sheffield or online. Most of them advertised are for Doll's houses & are too small. Help or advice appreciated
  2. Thanks for that Alan!
  3. The battery needs replacing on my HP Pavilion Notebook DV6 computer, can anyone where I can buy a cheap replacement in Sheffield or elsewhere. I am nervous about buying online as there are so many numbers & I do not want to get the wrong one. Any advice or help would be appreciated. The HP spare number quoted is 593562-001. Thanking you.
  4. My Lenovo Yoga 3 laptop has started to click when starting up. When it is fully started the clicking stops. I do have a lot of family histor on this laptop & I do not want to lose it.

Is there anything I can do about it,can anyone advice me please.

  6. Winstons at the bottom of Snig Hill. Always had the latest clothes in. I always remember him measuring up for trousers. The one question I hated was, 'Which side do you dress, Sir? I should be so lucky! Ha Ha! Happy Days ! PopT

    Black Swan landlord in the '60s?

    I worked with Terry Steeples Father in Law in the Steelworks. Terry was one of the old fashioned entreprenural showman who never stopped coming up with new ideas to attract customers.One time he had the Kon Tiki boat on show at the Rotherham Essoldo. He also had a gift of getting top acts to appear at the places he managed & many people saw stars & bands that they would have never seen if it hadn't been for him. A great character missed by many. Happy Days! PopT

    Remington Road Parson Cross

    Some of my family moved into a new house at 3 Remington Road-Tom & Edith Glossop with their family 2 sons & a daughter. Happy Days!
  9. Many thanks for the copy of the old map of the area Phillip. It clearly shows the different areas. I was told the one time owners of the Gannister Mines lived at High Matlock. Due to the number of miners living in Huts, railway carriages & even tents ,many of them do not appear on the records. With this map at least I can see the different areas where some of my ancestors lived. Happy Days! PopT
  10. i have been looking at the electoral registers for the area & some family are listed as living at Little Matlock, others at High Matlock & others at Greaves Lane. Can anyone tell me the difference in these locations, I can guess but I do not want to record them as living in the wrong places. Help appreciated. Popt Happy Days!
  11. If you find any of the site fees expensive try getting someone to share the fee & the site. One piece of advice I would recommend is to record every source numbers of the individuals so you can check them again. Sometimes it is quite difficult to find the individual records again if you do not. Another tip is to remember most people in the old days could not read or write & so many records have different spellings of the names for the same individuals so do not discount any information you find just because the name is spelt differently. I have found 11 different spellings of my surname & often for the same person or individual family. Many names were spelt phonetically & different dialects in different areas spoke the names differently. I hore this helps you. PopT Happy Days!
  12. Does anyone remember Mr Moule's cat that used to sit in the shop window whenever it was sunny?

    Picture recovery programme

    Thanks for the help. Appreciated PopT
  14. Hi I thought I'd transferred some photo images from a SD card to my computer 7 foolishly deleted them before checking they had transferred. I think I need some software to recover the images from the SD card. Can anyone please recommend a programme that can be used on any computer or is there an alternative way to recover the images. I do not want to spend a fortune particularly if the software I buy can only be used on one computer is not transferrable. Please help as the images are irreplaeable & are needed by the family,any help whatsoever appreciated.
