I can't find James or Jemima in Mundia.

Yes, I have the burial for Marion (Outridge). But I think I'll poke around in Scotland. :)

You've gotten into Mundia before without any problems havent you?:confused:
Probably only from a link you posted.

On every page I've looked at there is no box into which you can enter a name.

Oh, if I type 'mundia a church' then I get a page I can use.

If I type 'mundia ferguson' or 'mundia james ferguson' or 'mundia ferguson 1837-1875' I don't get the right Ferguson.
