The Blo(o)r(e) Society is The Family History Society for anyone with Bloors, Bloores or Blores in their Family Tree – and Blewers and Blowers too. We have more than 100 Blo(o)r(e) Trees, so it is quite likely that anyone with Blo(o)r(e) ancestors will find them hiding somewhere in our ‘forest’.
The Next Meeting and AGM of The Blo(o)r(e) Society
will be held at
The Church Hall of St. Mark’s, Basford
next to 211, Basford Park Road, Basford, Stoke-on-Trent, ST5 0PG
on Saturday, October 28th, 2017
(AGM at 12 noon)
Anyone interested in Blo(o)r(e) Family History will be made Welcome.
We’ll be there, ready to help, from about 10am until about 5pm.
All the usual research tools and expertise will be available to help you start, restart, or continue your own Blo(o)r(e) Family History research.
For further information, contact Ian K Bloor on 01270 811 260 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Just finished stuffing envelopes with Issue 17.1. It’s been a bit of a struggle to get it out, mainly because Libre Office decided to misbehave when I was trying to produce the labels. I downloaded 4.2.2 but there seems to be a bug that prevents New>Labels working if I don’t have an empty document opened before I start. In fact Libre Office just locks up.
Next Newsletter will be started tomorrow, because I’ve had enough of doing it all at the last minute, and not having time to get it proofed by my team of devoted helpers. My fault again.
Just need to get better (vaguely) organised. Clear the debris. Sort the piles. Empty the boxes. Shred the shraff. Have a PLAN. Keep records of what we’ve not used yet.
It’s beginning to sound like a full-time job for someone, rather than a task I can do in the odd spare moment.
