The Common Room / ANCESTRY baptisms not showing full info
« on: Friday 15 June 18 16:05 BST (UK)  »
I have been away over the past week or so, I am having problems with Ancestry, baptisms not showing full info also I am having problems with clicking on info to find there is no info there at all, as an instance it might say 6 against  say family trees and when I click there are none.
I am beginning to think I am losing it a bit as it is like it most of the day today, frustrating as it is
Anyone else having problems

Essex / burial hunting
« on: Friday 25 May 18 14:13 BST (UK)  »
Yesterday I met a relation in London to look for a burial plot in Paddington Old Cemetery Willesden Lane, the date was 1925 and we were told the stone  had been moved against the wall, we duly found where it should be, no stone, we found the number next door to where it should be so we searched as far as we could, we even looked amongst the brambles under a tree as we saw a few stones laid there wishing we had secateurs,  I had given up hope till my relation suddenly saw the surname, it was laid against the next doors stone the other way round and leaning, we easily could have missed it, we managed with difficulty to take a photo to give to the persons son, he is now 97 and his mother died when he was 5, it was quite emotional really as we were astonished to find the stone at all given it had been moved

Was well worth the exorbitant fare I had to pay from Essex, a good  day out

It appears our address book has been got at, I used dropbox last year to gather info from Sweden, perfectly fine, recently I thought a relative in England was sending me info via dropbox, WRONG, it is a scam, I have received emails from people asking me about it but we haven't sent it on, so I can only assume it is a scam, so please be careful

I might add that Dropbox is perfectly OK, till someone comes along and causes a problem

I have for years been hunting my husband's Gt Grandfather's birth, Henry Alexander Bragg.

I have found him from his marriage onwards, on all census birth appears to be circa 1847 ish but on his death it is 1852, I have the cert, census place of birth Strand then Lambeth,  have never found a birth registration or baptisms in Strand or Lambeth for him under Henry Alexander Bragg, with unusual Christian names I would have thought it would be easier, 

Henry's  first daughter had the name Elizabeth Caroline so I have been hunting for either an Elizabeth Bragg or Caroline as his mother , on his marriage Henry Alexander Bragg states father was Edward as an artist, we have searched that and came up with nothing at all.

There is an Elizabeth Bragg show traveller/traveller born Newington, I cannot find her anywhere else except 1871/1881 census as a show traveller born newington and  a  possible death. I am now wondering if Edward was an artiste which would make sense IF Elizabeth Bragg was his wife, show traveller, I have tried entering show traveller in the box on Ancestry but nothing comes up,1871 and 1881 she is a widow, can't find anything else about her or him

I have also put a search for H A Bragg on  London RC. prior to this

Any help much appreciated
