    All those kettles being switched on...and all that surfing during half time. I hope they can cope?

    Thanks Mandy, I haven't looked at the 1911 Census yet, so it will really enjoy it.

    Thanks Mandy.
    People like me, who aren't interested in football (and don't have a TV) don't know when the matches are on.
    I've just registered and logged on, found my mother in 1911, and wanted to see the household.
    It wants me to pay to see the entry.
    Is it the wrong time of day, or have I done something wrong?

    Found the household.

    That site's very slow.
    To be expected, I suppose.

    I had to refresh the page, then it asked me to re-enter and that seemed to work. It should be less busier next time?

    Ha fair 'nough....I think I've seen you at the checkout in Asda before, barging your way in there, three shopping trolleys full... and chocolate all over your face. .


    Only kidding Mandy. Thanks for the link...I found all grandparents, and have a sore neck from tryin' to watch the footy at the same time.

    Perhaps OH was right !, about England "not really playing" ....the only thing I managed to find out was my GGgrandmother was in the workhouse age 69 in 1911, sad so sad !
