Hello Lynne Glamorgan and Dyfed list has moved to https://groups.io/g/GLAMORGAN/topics and WLS-Dyfed email [email protected] and [email protected] <https://groups.io/g/GLAMORGAN> I don't know what's happening to all the other lists.

    1. [WALES-GEN] TNA - Changes to document ordering
    2. Lynne
    3. For those that visit Kew, changes are being made to document ordering at The National Archives: "From Tuesday 31 March 2020, as part of a six-month trial, readers will be able to order a maximum of 12 documents for the same day, plus up to 12 documents ordered in advance (a maximum of 24 documents per reader per day). "There will be five document ordering slots available each day and you can order as many of your 12 same-day documents as you require in any of the slots. This means that if you have prepared your references you will be able to order 12 documents at the same time. Documents will be delivered at set times each day. "You will not need to finish your advance orders before ordering documents for the same day...." "The majority of our readers already request records in advance of a visit in order to make the most of their day. If you are not already a user of the advance and bulk order services you can find details on our website on the how to order documents page. We have included a comparison breakdown of the changes overleaf." See <https://nationalarchives.gov.uk/about/news/changes-to-document-ordering/> Lynne

    3. Dear friends, In the midst of all this craziness on RootsWeb, please know that we haven't forgotten our friends in Australia. Our hearts go out to you in this most difficult time. No matter where we live, we're watching what's happening, feeling very helpless, and are appalled by the horrible fires and the destruction they're causing. We're thinking of the lives lost, both human and animal, and feeling incredible sadness. Keeping you in our thoughts and prayers. Lynne

    2. Lynne
    3. Dear friends, No matter which holiday you celebrate, may this year's be the best ever! My wish is that in the coming year you break down brick walls and that you and your families enjoy peace, good health, and happiness. As the year draws to a close, please give a thought to the future of RootsWeb's mailing lists. If they are to continue, your posts are needed. Many mailing lists have been inactivated because of lack of participation. If every subscriber posted her or his interests, a snippet of information or history, or posed a question every month or even a few times a year, the lists would be very busy indeed. Many thanks go to those that do post to the lists. Your contributions are invaluable. Warm regards, Lynne PS - A card awaits you at <https://tinyurl.com/s6vxxba> Enjoy!

    2. Lynne
    3. In Flanders Fields In Flanders fields the poppies grow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields. -- Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae, 1915 In remembrance of Frank BUSKEY (formerly WALKER), 10th Battalion, Loyal North Lancashire Regiment. Born Bolton 1891, died 24th September 1917 of war wounds. Buried at Godewaersvelde British Cemetery. and another . . . Frank BUSKEY b. 1897 Rochdale, d. 1967 Philadelphia Great Uncle Frank served in both WWI and WWII and lived to tell about the wars. Also in remembrance of Bob DUBUC, Harry ELWELL, Bernard KLEIN, Frederick KLEIN, Richard KLEIN, and especially in remembrance of my father Edwin Russell KLEIN, who all served in and survived WWII but who are no longer with us and are dearly missed. Whether you call it Remembrance Day, Armistice Day, or Veterans Day, please post your memories of those who served. Lest we forget. Lynne

    2. Lynne
    3. This interesting and informative snippet was posted by London Westminster & Middlesex FHS: "On this day in 1870 the postcard was officially introduced, along with a halfpenny stamp. An interesting fact which can help date family photographs which have postcard backs is that picture postcards were not allowed until 1894 and in 1899 court size (the size we have today) was introduced, ie 5.5 inches x 3.5 inches." Hope someone finds this helpful in trying to date old picture postcards. Lynne
