The plot thickens


Mum is still engaged on her quest of trying to prove she became a naturalised UK citizen in 1969 (the eventual goal being to prove she _isn't_ a South African citizen any longer and therefore doesn't need an SA passport to enter that country). She has now heard back from the Immigration Authority saying "yes, your naturalisation number was X, the date concerned was Y, but we no longer have a copy of your certificate because it was so long ago; you need to contact the National Archives at Kew".

rotwang has just hypothesised that Presumably they need to find someone who can still transcribe cuneiform, some of the right sort of clay, etc.?. I am inclined to agree. Did they issue certificates as cave paintings?

  • Gah -- "friends" page styles

    Anyone know how to turn off LJ's new "feed" style friends pages? Do not want. I find my existing 25-entries-per-page to be much more manageable.

    Merry winter-festival-of-your-choice, all of you!

  • Gissa job...

    No, no, not me, but a friend of mine is losing his retail job this coming Monday when the place where he works closes down. (Nice timing...) Anyone…
