Thank You Ruskie!! 🌸🌸🌸

Ruskie  -  I'm so so sorry and ashamed that I didn't reply to your post before now! Only just came across it now. 2010, that's almost 7 years ago!!  Later information that I had received from a relative states that Elizabeth Watson (née Whiteacre) was born in Narbeth Wales, but I've still not been able to locate a birth record for her, despite searching for a birth cert for years!  Oh well, you win some and lose some!

Apologies again, and thanks heaps for your input.

Jeanne  :) 😄😄🌺

Thank you all so much for your great  help, more than a bit belated with that, and I apologise sincerely for my bad manners!

Just in the process of having another go at finding my missing Robert! And the thread came up in a search.

(I visited the Burnley Road house on my trip and got some really good photos)!

So....Thanks again,
Jeanne 🌺🌺

Do you have a tree on Ancestry??  If so, there is a facility to send an invitation and password to view your tree.

 :o :o :o :o

Someone's going to get a shock if they are a researcher of either the Forde or McGeeon Family and find this record!   ;D ;D ;D ;D

Such technology won't need to look at any of mine. I can't think of any with people on them. If there are, I usually clone them out and the only known 'photos of me are on my passport, my driving license and my bus pass.

One thing people might ask in the future is why some people spent so much time photographing themselves.

😜😜👍👍 The selfie generation is alive and well!!  ;D ;D

Are you sure the notices are not banns?   Before marriage, couples had to have the marriage banns read out in Church -  each in their own parish.

Technical Help / Re: Saving images from Ancestry
« on: Thursday 30 November 17 09:30 GMT (UK)  »
I recently changed my Ancestry subscription from World Wide to UK.  When I next went into my tree, all the records I had saved had gone, including my Shoebox - except for those from the UK.  All that came up was a notice advising me to take up a World Wide sub!  I had downloaded and saved a good number of vital records over the years, BDM's and newspaper records etc. from Canada, USA, Australia and New Zealand, as well as UK! 

I was pretty peeved of course, because I'd paid for them, so I decided that night to write a letter of complaint to Ancestry, asking for them to be restored to my Gallery, as I had effectively paid for them with my previous World Wide sub!

I wrote the letter, then signed back in before I sent it, just to check myself, and fortunately they were all back in there,  so I guess must have been similar to the problem you were having CA.  A bit of an Ancestry disappearing problem somewhere as with you C-A!  So relieved they're back!
