Re: PDF report with blank page 1

If you save the file in RTF format you can open the file and save it in any format you choose. A drop down list appears for you to pick in Word.
Once you have done that you can edit it, which you can't do in PDF (depends on where you get this from).

Re: Naturalisation

Thanks for your replies on this. It has enlightened me on the past and I hope others too so we all have to bear in mind what to put on their FH details

I will ask the great grandson of the woman in question. He was the one who sent me details of her naturalisation application.

Re: Nationalisation

Sorry my error I originally wrote naturalisation but then changed it. Just thought I would mention this to make others aware of such a marriage making the 'home' person the nationality of the immigrant. Come to think of it, if the wife was German she then have become English after marrying her Engli...

Naturalisation

We all, well most of us do, know about nationalisation I learned something new a few days ago. In 1875 an English wife, born in King's Lynn, married a German, born in Hamburg, in England. They lived here and brought up a family. They are all listed in the census years. They never lived in Germany. W...

Census, 1939 Register, Electoral Roll

This is prompted by the 16298|Customize Property Box puzzle posting. I know we are talking about the Electoral Roll or Registry. Those of 1939 are really a National Registry listing people due to the war. The addresses shown are not very accurate. My parents are listed as living in Hull when they ha...

Just one question

When you have OneDrive listed on the File Explorer does that take up space on the computer hard drive or is it 100% in the Cloud?
