Sorry - I don't have a sub to Findmypast hence my request. Should have said shouldn't I. Brain melting in this hot weather we are having.
I have searched the newspapers on FMP, but I can't find any mention of
George Shaw, sorry.
I've emailed you the article mentioned by Patrick
Many thanks Carol and also to the others too.
Sorry about my blunder.....thanks to Dave T. who e-mailed me today with the date the
article was in the Sheffield Independent. I presume this is the one that Carol has
sent you. Think a trip to Specsavers is due for me.
