Greetings David

Over the last few weeks I have experienced severe trauma with my PC. Thought
I had picked up something horrible, although unlikely as I have every email
with an attachment going straight to my Delete Box where I can have a quiet
'looksee' to see whether I even want to open the email let alone the
attachment. Had various checks made and "no virus". The I found I could not
even log on to my server, so I was lost. Got "expert" youngest son to do all
the checks and he got me up and running. It lasted a day. Apart from now
having a Virus Checker that would even detect chicken-pox (my granddaughter,
aged 2, now in final stages) my machine was running at such a slow speed
that I could walk as far as the Jolly Sailor for a couple and back whilst it
did a calculation in a spread sheet. "Expert" has been saying my kit was so
old it was no good so went out and bought a new one with all the "bells &
whistles" (less inheritance for him when I join my ancestors) and had a
proper medical on the old one. Up and running yesterday (390 mails from
Glam-L alone) but it takes some getting used to this b..... Microsoft 2k (my
1881 Census works OK). I have not yet found out how to get all my saved
emails across from the old machine. Suggestions welcome!

Now as to why I replied to yours re. "Ystrad Rhondda Labour Gleemen 1948". I
wonder whether J Cross, although being a diehard right-winger, was PC or
Sergeant Jack Cross (married to my mother's sister Kathleen). I must come up
to Ystrad and have a look for myself. I will also email cousin Trisha in
Princeton (USA) to ask in what police house they were living in 1948.

David, do you think the M. Sathiel was Salathiel?
