I didnt realise that the old forum was down. Im using this free forum because it seems so much easier, im hoping that new members will find it easier to sign up and wont generate any spam problems, ie spam members making links etc.
Its supposedly ad supported but they are not my ads. Not that I have a problem with using ads but I preffer to keep it clean and simple.
Please feel free highlight edits for the site etc and even chit chat if you feel so inclined.
Hey there I carried out my family tree about 5 years ago. Found some interesting things but one of them being the murder of Margaret Davies 1937 Coedpoeth. Not much around about the incident back then but Googled his name tonight to show the missus. Wow! Back in 2010 I applied to National Archives for the case file and 100s pounds later I gained an insight to what happened to my Auntie, the file had lots of photos, wounds locations etc but I never thought I'd see the day I would see her murderer Frank Joynson. Don't get me wrong he was in a love trap. after reading love letters between them both she completely manipulated him and basically drove him round the bend. I noticed on this website that you have pictures from the file I have and pictures of Frank and it kind of threw me a little. I know there are photos and other bits being held at National Archives that will be available soon 2016 I think...
I just wanted to thank you for it. If you would like any information from case files I'd be morethan happy to share. Who was the poster of the page? Thanks Phil Jones
Yes, there are often a variety of different files covering the same case.
Generally its the PCOM records that have the villians mugshot, which is otherwise quite rare to find for some reason. There might be other records, maybe a MEPO, CRIM or a few other ASSI files.
Thanks for the offer of more information, however, I only reference public information for a number of reasons. But if you wrote it up in a blog then I would reference it.
Its an intereting case. I think I need to go through it again and correct spellings and maybe rearrange it all. In answer to your question, I 'posted' the page, I wrote the whole site, or at least the bits I didnt copy and paste. The cases are in general quite random, theres no methodolgy to which cases are chosen. I do have a preference for the mundane though.
I must admit, the most memoralble part of that case was his note to the gas company.
Surprising the National Archives charged you £100 or was that travel and lodgings to get there or they copied it for you? Their copying fees are not cheap.
