How much a vintage record player with British royal seal costs?
How does this relate to royalty?
Why would a bunch of royalty "experts" know anything about the price of an old record player, made in the 80s, probably out of plastic, and worth nothing.
Take it to an antique dealer.
Did the British Empire keep records of names of African soldiers / porters it used during the first world war?
The British have a tendency to keep records on everything, myself inculded, and are very good at keeping those records. Anybody who received a wage would have a record, and a military record. They also kept records on who to notify in case of death or injury. Not all records survive though, but its surprising how many do.
There has also been an attempt to provide retospective information. For example some people have documented and archived names from crosses and cemetrys - so it might be possible to find where he might be buried as well
I have just Google'd "Tracing WW1 Soldiers" and it brings up several good places to start:
You need to work methodically, like a detective, following lines of enquiry otherwise you can get overwhelmed. Don't expect a quick result.
I'm British, no criminal record... how do I emigrate to the USA (South Carolina)?

I would start with the local American Embassy. If they don't have the answer then they should be able to point you in the right direction.

What is the world record for spending a period of time at college?
My cousin went to college in 1988 and she is still going NOW til this very day to pursue an undergraduate degree. She has been doing it for about two decades now and there is stopping her. She switches her majors too frequently.
Is it possible to get any kind of record to prove my father has got a British driving license?
Same place he would go to get a duplicate license if his wallet were stolen. They don't care about the home address but he was supposed to update that address in their system (Motor Vehicle Department) when he moved. It's not too late to do it now.
I'd call a friend who lives in the same city to go to the office itself and get the required info. You can do it online but they are worried about fraud , especially in certain countries that are on the "watch" lists.
Someday he will be going "home". Maybe now is the time. He can walk out with a new license in less than 1 hour.
to get british passport are they going to check your record?
If you have any criminal warrants outstanding, they may arrest you. If you just owe other people money, then that is no reason not to issue you a passport, unless there is a chance that you may use it to defraud others.
The British government is considering a proposal to record all telephone conversation and E-mails?
They already do it to an extent. All email, text messages, phone calls, comunications of any sort is recorded if there is any 'key words' in them. Anything liking to terrorism, danger to the British public, anything that many or is undermining British military secrets, anything like that
You wouldn't loose your job because we have the right to free speech. Otherwise the other political parties opposite to the one that is in powere would e locked up, as they show opposite oppinions to that of the government.
Is there any record that British spies infiltrated the Gestapo or the SS?
The best success was inducing apprehended German agents to pass false radio information to Occupied Europe.
This happened in most operational areas except the Far East. The reverse was attempted but with limited use or success. No successful penetration of the Gestapo or SS
is known apart from usage of captured or stolen documents
and operational plans. The best wartime exploits of Gestapo
operations continues in present-day organization named Interpol. Vichy France was of some use in the North African Invasion but it failed to prevent hostilities between French Navy vessels and combined Allied Naval Forces. Only allied communication with French military
command structure in Africa prevented additional conflict.
It depends on how severe the crime was, I think. There could be some way to waiver you in, especially if you paid due fines/done due jail time.
I mean, we're fairly desperate for military recruits at this time. So maybe..
If you have a criminal record, but you are British, are you not allowed to go to the USA or Canada?
In Canada, you are criminally inadmissible for entry if you have been convicted of a crime (which committed in Canada) is an indictable offense under the Canadian Criminal Code carrying a maximum sentence of two or more years -- or multiple crimes as part of the same offense whose combined sentence are more than two years. It doesn't matter what sentence you received in the UK or what it's maximum sentence is. You are also inadmissible if you have an outstanding warrant (of any kind) or you have been convicted of any crime and have not served your full sentence (i.e. parole, suspended sentence, etc.) A pardon removes the conviction from your record.
Canadian Border Services and Citizenship and Immigration Canada have access to criminal and warrant information from most countries including Interpol. When CSB scans your passport, your record will pop up, and after asking a few questions to confirm that you are the same person, you'll be denied entry.
There are ways around this. You can apply for rehabilitation at the Canadian embassy. You apply, pay a fee, and after five years of no further convictions, one offense on your record is marked as rehabilitated and won't prevent entry. Serious offenses (usually with a 10 year or more maximum sentence) may not be rehabilitated. The second option is to apply at the embassy on emergency or compassionate grounds. Typically, they'll want proof of a family death (death certificate), serious illness, etc. If granted, they'll issue a temporary residency visa (typically dated for a rather short period of time).
The United States is somewhat similar. You may not enter with a conviction of any crime which in the United States would be a felony, plus a long list of "minor" offenses which still exclude entry (including drug, prostitution, etc.) It has its own system of waivers for possible entry of people with (minor) criminal records.
What were the British politicians' positions and comments on record about the Confederate States of America?
Generally the British government withheld recognition from the CSA for a variety of reasons the most influential being the fact that Slavery was very unpopular in Great Britian at the time. As a result of this unpopularity diplomatic recognition received very little support in Parliament. There were times when the British Government flirted with the Confederacy (they sent a military observer to observe the Battle of Gettysburg) but the fact remains that besides the opinions of a select few British (the Prime Minister was somewhat pro-southern) Great Britain was staunchly pro-Union.
Will an American vinyl record work on a British turntable?
Hehehe :) That's a great story, but not true. The only difference between UK and US vinyl just applies to 7" singles. The UK ones usually have a small hole, the US ones have a big fat hole so you may need an adapter: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/45_rpm_adapter
There is no format difference between American and British LPs. Assuming your looking at a 45 or 33 RPM record, you probably won't have any issues (if it's an older 78, then you'll need to see if your player will play at 78 RPM.)
Where can I buy a 110 volt , 60Hz to 220 volt, 50Hz converter for my British record player?
It would be cheaper to get a new record player. Most motors rely on the Hz when they drive the platter, so you'd have to find a power supply that would convert 110V, 60 Hz to 220V, 50Hz. Those are much more expensive than a 110V, 60Hz record player.
Just converting from 110V to 220V probably won't do it.
which is the best website for free british vital record checking?
Which country in the British Isles? The civil registration records for England and Wales are separate from the ones for Scotland and for Ireland. However, the publicly available indexes will only show the year and quarter in which your birth was registered together with the references necessary for ordering a birth certificate for the price of £9.25 minimum.
http://freebmd.rootsweb.com/cgi/search.pl are transcribing the indexes to make them freely available online but they have only got up to the middle of the 20th century so far so, unless you are very much older than me, I doubt the entry for your birth is online yet. More recent indexes can be searched at Ancestry.co.uk which is available for free in UK libraries. However, as this question was asked on Y!A US I doubt you have access to the UK version of Ancestry.
You would need to have someone who subscribes to Ancestry World Edition look this up for you. I don't advise posting your personal private details online for fear of identity theft. I suggest contacting your nearest Family History Centre run by the LDS Church and finding out if they have free access to the civil registration indexes. Scroll to the bottom of the page here http://www.familysearch.org/eng/default.asp and find out where the nearest one is.
Note you will only be able to consult the birth index for free. Birth Certificates cost £9.25 when ordered online with full reference given http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/Governmentcitizensandrights/Registeringlifeevents/Familyhistoryandresearch/Birthmarriageanddeathcertificates/DG_175628

Is it illegal for a newspaper (British) to secretly record videos and voice recordings?
Yes. it is illegal to wire tapp any videos and even voice recordings. Since then it was actually prohibited in all of the countries in the world especially U.S. here in the Philippines because we are really sensitive in making illegal act such that of wire tapping prohibition was imposed. I advice you don't do such act because it can put you from danger.
if you want you should ask permission on any of the personnel or news writer in the particular newspaper. So, better do an appropriate act in recording videos or any kind of recording because law prohibits it...Gudluck!
