    3. Hello, Yes it is very quiet; I didn't even get Stephanie's original message to which "VIRFM" replied (unless it is a very "late" reply, and I have forgotten the original :-) Just one general point about the transcription of the 1881 Census, which list members, especially those outside the UK, may not be aware of, and could lead to confusion: Most of the county names ending with "shire" are truncated in the transcription, by removing the "shire". The problem with doing that is that what is left is the name of a town or city. So Gloucestershire appears as Gloucester, Yorkshire as York, Derbyshire as Derby, ands so on. The entry in the reply below makes it look as if Bristol (a city) is part of Gloucester (another city), and that Almondbury (a town) is part of York (a city). In fact Bristol is over 30 miles from Gloucester, and Almondbury about 35 miles from York. The strange thing is that those county names like Lancashire, Cheshire and Berkshire, which do end with "shire", but don't leave the name of a town or city when the "shire" is removed, are given in full, as are those county names like Middlesex and Suffolk, which don't end with "shire". My own GOLDSTONE interest is the descendants and ancestors of David GOLDSTONE (my 2nd great grandfather), born Witham, Essex, about 1825, died 16 May 1889, Colchester, Essex.
