And they must have had a welter of beta testers - I tried to sign up almost immediately after the June announcement was made requesting applications, and I was rejected within 20 minutes....

Re: Military Records post WW1

There's a site "aircrew remembered" http://www.aircrewremembered.com/ which has a large amount of information of fliers of all types. A quick look doesn't have a Robert Collinson, but you might find something to link with him. In my experience the site administrators are very friendly and helpful, s...

Re: Erroneous Data on Census

Another issue to consider is who actually may have supplied the information. I have several cases where Mrs X (not the head of household) supplied the information from her view - so "sister" was not the sister of the HoH, but actually his sister-in-law. That maybe easy to spot, but in cases of "neph...

Re: Release of Version 7

When V7 was announced there was an "appeal" for beta testers. I offered to become one, particularly because I'm a long term Master Genealogist user with a bit of expertise with that. I received the following email in mid-November last year, and have received nothing since. "Thank you for your offer ...

Re: FH PDF Printer Settings

I am involved with the production and printing of a small scale newsletter, and I submit finished versions as PDF, but we are almost always only producing stuff in greyscale. We sometimes have colour material (as covers or centre page sections), and printing colour can be fraught with difficulties. ...

Re: 1939 Register - Handwriting Help Please

Looks like Dennis Harrison to me. On the preceding page there's a Patrick, and the P formation is not like this example. And on the same page someone is listed as a Dairy farmer, and the letter formation looks very similar.

Re: New Windows 10 Clipboard History

I don't know about others, but my experience of this so far is that it's a bit flaky. Using it once seems fine, and the wee box that has your clippings in, is bottom right of my main screen (2 monitor set up). Using it again seems to activate the box and it follows my cursor around, or randomly pops...

Re: Customising Records window

You guys are just awesome. Totally uber-awesome (as my neice says). Following all this I now have a screen populated with names and ID numbers, and a great insight as to how this all works for future modifications. All I need now is a bigger monitor to see all the glory in one go! Thanks to you all....

Re: Customising Records window

Thanks, but that doesn't work. What I want is the father's ID number, and that isn't in any drop down from the father's details (that I can find).

Customising Records window

Apologies if there's an easy answer to this somewhere which I haven't found. I have customised the individual records window (amongst other things) with a column to show the Father of an individual person. No problem with that. But I have a lot of fathers with the same given name and family name, so...

Re: How wide to go? (Cousins)

For me one of the joys of family history is following up some of those really unrelated people you come across and seeing where life takes you or them! Often following those peripheral folk has resulted in my wife and I visiting delightful churches and cathedrals in towns and villages we would other...

Re: Married to each other twice.

Although it probably doesn't apply in this case I have a situation of two people marrying twice, and I found out it's actually a common feature in certain circumstances. In my situation (the mid 1870s) the two were married first in their local church. The groom was in the Royal Artillery, and regula...
