Looking for Information

One hectic week at work and after school activities with my kids has meant that time researching has taken a hit this week. My daughter has dance exams coming up which means LOTS of extra lessons, I sure feel like a taxi service at the moment!

RESEARCH UPDATE: Although time has been limited, I have at last completed extracting all the correctly transcribed Scrace’s from the 1911 UK Census. I have now started the same process for the surname of Scrase, although I have only just started on this. I currently have my data on various Excel spreadsheets, but after reading a few reviews I am considering trying out Custodian 3, but think I will see if I can find out some more information first. If anyone has any experience of it, please get in touch?

CAN YOU HELP?  Do you have any information about a gentleman called Richard SCRACE (the spelling has also been as SCRASE on some documents I have). He was known as Dick and he was born in Brighton in October 1837 and died in Bexhill in October 1906. He was the Town Crier here. I would love to hear from you if any of this sounds familiar, as I am currently trying to build up a profile of him, I have been provided with some information on him, but want to know a little more before I share it on here.

Until next time………………………..
