[Research Guidance: England, How to Use Census Records]: " census is a count and description of the population. The censuses of England and Wales are especially helpful for family history research because they list the majority of the population and are readily available. Censuses of genealogical value have been taken every ten years since 1841, with the exception of 1941. "

Why "Nine by Nine"? Back in 1986 I left my then full-time employment to trade as a freelance software developer and consultant. At that time, my working space was a small "box room", slightly smaller than 9 feet square, into which I shoehorned all of my computer equipment and books, which gave rise to my trading name. Since then I've been in and out of normal employment a few times, but have retained my trading name to provide a degree of continuity, and to remind me of those good old days :-)

the aim of these pages:-

One place study of Brumleby AKA Københavns Lægeforeningens Boliger
is for local historians

many years ago

In fact it would be better served by editing and cutting the images to match each block as a gif
am I allowed to do that as academic "fair use" provided I quote the source?

I plan to link to all the Brumleby census folketælling
as the years go by and eventually transcribe those in the Riksarkiv for that Matrnr. which are not yet filmed

Links to the St Jacobs Østerbogade Kirkebog
such images should obviously be a normal part of any local history site

This is my first KIP file saved as csv
and translated as text to help non speakers of danish learn to read the basics of using folketæling
they are mostly descendants of Danes living in USA for generations and whose families no longer speak Danish

they also come to Denmark as tourists and so help the danish economy.
again a revisd version ofthis page would cut the images up into households
and reformat

This index is in Randers lokal archive
I made the site because the provision of finding aids (indexes) for Randers was so poor at the Riksarkivet film room

Randers Census Folketælling master index FT-1801
Randers Census Folketælling master index FT-1840

my aims are that Randers school children could easily see who used to live in their house,
and danish descendants in USA (for example) should have easy access to their kulturarv
cultural heritage.

Some Swiss exterminators and their enemies with links to National Pest Management Association

WASHINGTON – A forgotten old nursery rhyme is having more meaning for Americans these days.

"Sleep tight. Don't let the bedbugs bite."

But they are biting in all 50 states as they haven't bitten since the 1940s, say pest control companies, scientists and health officials. And, indeed, it is making sleep more difficult for Americans of all walks of life – from denizens of homeless shelters to those visiting the swankiest five-star hotels.

Outbreaks of bedbug infestations have been reported from coast to coast, north and south and among rich and poor. Experts attribute the plague largely to two factors: increased travel and the banning of DDT and other effective pesticides that virtually wiped out "Cimex lectularious," the Latin name for the pest.
Bedbugs can survive for up to a year lying in wait for the nice warm body of an unknowing traveler. Once discovered, they can be difficult for a hotel or cruise ship or homeowner to eliminate, requiring special insecticides and tools, not just a can of bug spray.

One Boston mother reportedly threw out her children's bunk beds and her own and asked her landlord to fumigate her apartment. When that didn't end the rash of ugly bug bites on her children, she moved, leaving her possessions behind for fear they'd become infested. Bedbugs cost her $6,000.

According to dozens of experts, the bedbug had virtually disappeared from the United States during World War II, when the pesticide DDT was introduced. But the banning of DDT and other effective pesticides due to environmental concerns has spurred their return.
Bedbugs are going ballistic."
said Michael Potter, a professor of urban entomology at the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture in Lexington.

Max mentions the fact that Karl had four daughters that lived (plus a daughter and a son who died), all from his first wife Anna Olschwang, whom he met and married in St. Petersburg, Russia. I know of the names of two daughters, my greatgreatgrandmother Anna, the first born. And the youngest, Elisabeth, for whom my greataunt Elisabeth Dauthendey Frazier was named.

I have been in touch with a researcher in St. Petersburg who says that she can look it all up for me, but that the records over there are not like records over here -- they are all over the place and not in very good organizational order.

She wanted $80 just to look at my information, and THEN would start charging me by the hour for research

My specialities are England, Wales, Denmark and links to USA and the British Empire mostly in the age of steam - or about 1790 to 1950 so in the chat room I help anyone with their questions 0n those subjects, I used to teach instrumental music in Wolverhampon so I know that area.

James Watt -The Steam Engine Gains Popularity: "the invention of the rotary engine, with its ' sun and planet motion,' in 1781."

Anyway born in 1936 in Sutton Coldfield and growing up in the Midlands when steam engines were still (just) commercially viable, meant that I had a natural love of steam and coal.

But when in 1954- 1955 I learned about
thermodynamics and the relative indicated thermal efficiency of the reciprocating engines at Loughborough CAT (now the university) so seing no future in steam locomotives, I dropped mechanical engineering in favour of civil engineering, and I thought that at least I could work with the infrastucture of railways, and may be a spaceport in Australia in the 1980ies, but fate enabled me to become a professional musician.

in passing via google - en passant :-
Steam Balloon Article: "The steam balloon appears to be an extremely viable proposition; and while the steam airship does not have the potential to displace the helium airship in every application, it appears that it may well find a rewarding niche, perhaps in sports or low operating cost roles. And a steam engine is certainly a competitive alternative to the use of an 'explosion engine' for powering a steam airship. The writer is a little surprised that these concepts have never before been seriously advanced. "
and his illustrations look like steam car innards - another dream crushed in the 1950ies.

More than 100 of the State's top earners used property-based tax breaks to avoid paying an average of more than €200,000 each in tax, according to an analysis of a new Revenue Commissioners' study of high earners. Mark Brennock, Chief Political Correspondent, reports

The study shows that 29 of these people paid no tax at all in 2001. All 115 of them appear to have earned more than €500,000, but paid tax at an effective rate of less than 30 per cent in that year. They claimed tax relief of €42 million on property investments in that tax year.

Labour's finance spokeswoman Joan Burton yesterday pointed out that the study "shows no reduction in the numbers paying no tax at all". In both 1999/2000 and in 2001, 29 top earners paid no tax.

the luck of the irish - no, sensible tax planning

GRIFFITH Surname y-DNA Project

The GRIFFITH surname project is intended to provide an avenue for connecting the many branches of Griffith, Griffiths and other forms of the surname. The patronymic naming system, practiced in Wales into the latter 18th century, makes this task more difficult. Evan, Thomas, Johns, Jones, Rees, Owen, and many other common Welsh names may share common male ancestors. Surnames included in the project include: Griffeth, Griffeths, Griffets, Griffett, Griffis, Griffith, Griffiths, Griffitts

I am very suspicious of these patronymic projects because there are millions of individuals all unrelated - expensive ules tightly designed

Hi all,

Copied this with permission of the poster
Start of quote:
As we go to press, it has come to my attention that in April the MOD intends to destroy some 6 million records of medals issued to WW1 personnel. I think you will agree that we cannot let them do so.
Our military expert Paul Reed has been looking into the matter and it appears that the private facility used by the MOD to hold the records at Hayes wants to relocate and charge the MOD for moving the cards. The MOD's response is to get rid of the 140 filing cabinets that contain the 4x6 cards. The National Archives doesn't want to take on the cards because it has already microfiched them and the microfiche has been digitally scanned

This isn't good enough. This is the only complete and untouched recordof First World War soldiers left. Other service records were burned during WW2. Only the fronts of the cards have been scanned and we believe that written on the back of many of these cards is the address that the medals were sent to.
Often, it isn't possible to determinewhether the record of the medals issued relates to your ancestor or another person without checking this address.

First, the cards need to be preserved.
They then need to be scannedproperly, front and back, and re-indexed.
If the National Archiveswon't step in, perhaps someone else will. The Imperial War Museum? TheVeteran's Association?

The MOD claims its holds copyright on the cards and that it can do what it wishes with them. I'd argue that these cards are part of the nation's heritage. They are public records, and I'd remind the MOD that the descendants of WW1 soldiers pay their taxes.
The cards remind us of the enormous sacrifice and loss incurred by men and women in this country during WW1, and of their bravery in adversity. They enable the children and grandchildren of those who died, and those who survived, tofind out some ofthe lost details of their forebears.
To save the cards we must take action.

We're instituting a campaign to urge the Minister of Defence, Geoff Hoon, and the Director of theNational Archives, Sarah Tyacke, to prevent the destruction of theserecords straight away.

Address your letter to us and we'll pass it onto these authorities:

I apologise for typos in the above.
As we know now that the 1911 censusis in one almighty mess with the enumerator's books lost and the household schedules badly damaged, the thought of yet another valuable -priceless - resource being deliberately destroyed is beyond belief.

Such destruction will prevent those following in our footsteps in familyhistory research in generations to come from achieving their goals.

Wales, or the Church in Wales, was very intolerant,
so going to the county archive to research is the only way forwards.
