    Just let you know I got your pm but the site is telling me I cannot reply to it, I therefore cannot tell you that I have already been given that (the subject of the message) but anything I send to it keeps being bounced back. I think I mentioned this in my zip file post;) I also tried to put...

    I'd like to thank everyone here for their help, their time and their patience. Since joining this forum I have gained a number of online friends that I chat to here or in e-mail. I have done so much with my family tree that I did not think possible, and even though I still consider myself a...

    GRO contacts

    Hi I don't know if this is on the board already. But for those of you, like myself, who were under the illusion that the General register office covers all the UK then you would be wrong.

    for p.risboy aka Steve

    I have read no8...u can still do that using one screen....put the disc in then when it comes up wide on the top right hand corner you have the 3 symbols which minimise the screen and if you have windows 7 you can snap lock them and watch both windows at the same time.

    Can some one talk me through what to do next please? I have found my second great granddad and his family. I have him up to 1891 census, including his birth and marriage. His youngest child was born in 1890. I cannot find a residence for this youngest child. From that point the whole of the...
