Re: Clearly it Christmas.....

It is also very satisfying when things are not working or when you find people on Ancestry who have attributed your relatives to the wrong people without any proof!

Shropshire

Hi,
Doing some research for an online course I have been doing. If any one has ancestors in Shropshire I found a very interesting site www.shropshirehistory.com . It has many useful background articles and it appears is being added to.

Re: Blank web search

Hi, Don't know if I have the wrong issue, but we had a thread several months ago about FMP hints being very faint. I frequently have this issue and often when I first go for a hint my area is blank. I just close the hints area and go back to FH click on someone else and try again and it comes back, ...

Re: Source Types and templates in fh?

I do much the same as Colin. I find that if all the reference for a source is the title the source list becomes unmanageable, so for Parish Registers I have A (this is my code for parish registers) c (this is my code for baptisms {christenings} then the surname, then Christian name. In this means al...

Re: Windows update

Thank you so much for your help. I am so grateful I am back to normal. The computer settings were at 125% and when I tried to alter those it went wrong. They were ok it is the internet buttons that needed the correction.
Very best wishes Ann

Re: Best way to search a Census

Like Anne I spent many hours going through each disc and found many people I would have missed just loo...

Census refs

Sorry if this sounds silly but I happily enter census info via AS and add the images. Just curious, when I click on the census in the facts list the information comes that X appeared in the 1871 census. I then click on the citation but there is no reference there. When I go to the source records all...

Hi,
I haven't checked this myself as yet but reported on a couple of reputable forums, including Midland Ancestors, that the GRO are doing their pdf downloads of certificates for £6 for a period of 6months again. Only birth and death I believe. I'm off to make my list!

Not being factitious but I don't really mind what colour they are or their title as long as they show up, which can take several goes, particularly on first tries, as per posts several months ago!
