  1. Family! Who'd av em?

    |rant| A few years ago I wrote to each of my fathers family asking for information, birth, marriages and the like. I also sent a cover note that the information Iíd asked for would only be on my computer, as I didnít think it was right to put it on the web for everyone to look at without their...

  2. Ebay frustration!

    Wouldn't it be nice if those selling postcards on Ebay were obliged to detail any names on the cards? I frequently see cards from my family's home area and click on the item, hoping against hope that there will be the name of the sender and of the recipient listed alongside the term "Postally...

  3. 25,000 on tree!

But I was contacted yesterday by somebody on GR who has in excess of 25,000 people on his tree and we had a 'hot match' with...

  4. Military Records Winge!

    Hi all, Sorry to be a Victor Meldrew but I have just had an email reply from the Household Cavalry Museum and had a shock when they gave me a quote of £46 for just searching their archives for my ancestor's service records! I understand archives need to charge for their service and that our...

  5. People who ignore storm warnings

    There I was having my morning cuppa & having a look through the West Briton website & what do I spot? Yet another couple narrowly escaping death at Porthleven all because they were trying to get a photo of the waves. In another case a man in Penzance had to be rescued after he tried to retrieve...

  7. Anc* Family Tree & searching problems

    Has anyone run into difficulty lately building family trees on Ancestry? I've been creating new trees on that website for years, usually to assist friends etc with their research.

  8. Google Maps

    Very flash, that Google Map thingumy. It can show you a picture of the roads on London... great for those of us who like to know how London's Jewish East End has changed from fine houses to ugly concrete offices in Mansell Street or who, like me, want to spook Mum out by telling her that the red...

  9. The Ancestry Website is a Pain!

    Because I live in Canada, it keeps reidrecting me to Ancestry.ca even though all of my research is about the UK. Computers are not smarter than people!

  10. Politeness and understanding

    Hi All, Just a quick moan I'm afraid about a thread I read earlier. A Newbie posted a question, and admittedly she was not very clear about the person she was making an enquiry about, and I think she was presuming some of her information, (how many of us have done this ;) ) She received...

  12. Angry A******Y

    Maybe this should be on brickwalls. When I joined A******Y I signed up to the UK Heritage package as it was perfect for what I wanted as their selling point stated that I/we would get "FULL access to to ALL essential Austalian & UK record collections" They have made a new addition to their...

  13. Angry Researchers who disappear

    One of my pet hates: people who post useful information on one of the various forum sites available and then never go back: I'm trying to contact two at the moment, one on A******* who shares a 5xgg grandfather with me, and one on A****** and other boards who shares a 3xgg grandfather - and I know...

  14. Vague people contacting re possible connections

    I have had my first contact through the Ancestry system. Someone saw Frederick Joseph DREW, born 1882, and thinks it might be what is being searched for. So, I respond with a lot of information about that particular chap. Comes back, no, looking for Frederick Charles DREW, born about 1893, father...
