Re: 1939 Register

David, that was what was my problem, you get one from FMP and a different one from Ancestry. I totally agree with you about how the locations are recorded. Stoke on Trent is a nightmare as only Stoke is used and not the individual towns and there are lots of streets bearing the same name in each of ...

1939 Register

When the 1939 Register was only on FMP the transcriptions gave a ref. RG101 etc, However when it appeared on Ancestry the ref was totally different and not with the usual RG101 then a string of numbers and letters. I do find the images on Ancestry clearer and sometimes they cannot be found on FMP. H...

Re: The Theory of Eight

Hi David Newton
Yes thank you I have looked at it. Not been working on that line lately so will look again when return to it. I did have a DNA match who had Wildgoose but he said he had got to a Viking and when I asked him if he had looked at it I never heard from him again!

Re: Living "over the brush!"

Thank you very much for the replies. As far as I know they never used Ford at any other time and in fact the eldest daughter who was living next door as a lodger with my great grandmother still retained her Hunt surname and another of the daughters who was called Ford on this 1881 census married wit...

Living "over the brush!"

Hi, I would appreciated any thoughts on the following situation. My 2x gt aunt, Ann Yale, had an illegitimate child. I have given her an unknown spouse with status, "never married". She then married George and had 5 children. I have made George spouse no. 2 in the usual way. George died in...

Re: Sources not showing

MANY many apologies I have just realized what I have done. It was years ago when I entered the census data for this family, probably in the time of Gedcom Census. I have my code x which put census sources at the end so I don't have to scroll through loads, then 9 for 1891 then … I always used to put...

Re: Sources not showing

Hi I've been adding images to existing sources for ages and it was worked fine. In many cases I have added the census information to the family but just have not added the images. If I try to add the census from scratch in AS it says a fact for that person already exists, so all I need to do is add ...

Re: ThruLines on Ancestry

Helen, as you say even basic research can give you the same results. I think the main thing is that if you don't understand what Ancestry is doing you could think that this is the easy way to "proved" results and will lead to even more trees with errors. I didn't follow at first I was take...

ThruLines on Ancestry

Ancestry have got a new feature on their DNA pages. On the page where it says view all your matches on the right is a box which leads you to ThruLines. It uses DNA results and member trees to lead you to your actual ancestor match. Yes, sounds good but there are caveats. The ancestors appear in date...

Re: Sadler Disputed descent

Dear Evelyn
Your link worked fine. I had a look but I couldn't see a possible link. I must admit though that I have not researched the Sadlers very fully. I concentrated on those connected to my Parr line.
Thank you

Hi I might be getting the totally wrong end of the stick but to order my sources I do not use the title I put in categories and then give them a code eg, parish registers begin with A, then Ac for parish register baptisms, Am for parish register marriages and Ai for pr burials.
