« on: Saturday 21 April 18 08:52 BST (UK)  »
I've had an e-mail from FindMyPast giving me a sneak preview of this new facility. It seems pretty good. Has anyone else had the e-mail and tried it yet?


Technical Help / WordPress
« on: Saturday 07 April 18 10:38 BST (UK)  »
I've created a few websites over the years and am now thinking of using Wordpress for a new, mainly photography/art, site. I've used Koken designs before with separate hosting.

Anyone had experience with WordPress, comments, etc., please.


Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / DNA and bone graft
« on: Monday 12 February 18 13:45 GMT (UK)  »
I've got my DNA kit but I'm now concerned as I've just had a small bone graft to back up a  dental implant. Would this affect my spit sample?

Scotland / SP - saving long wills
« on: Saturday 02 September 17 09:26 BST (UK)  »
I have found a long will of circa 40 pages that I want to download/save. I'm sure that it was possible to save the whole will as a pdf under the old regime. Now it seems that the Save option only allows saving one page at a time. 

Have I missed some instructions somewhere or is it on their 'to do' list  :-\

I'm trying to find some information about Maria. All I have is what we found in this thread:

Specific refs are in these postings;

We found that she probably had a sister Elizabeth who married John Hobart in 1813

Any help to trace her death or her parentage, etc. gratefully received.


Ireland / Help - Dublin Evening News 20 March 1850
« on: Thursday 05 January 17 11:20 GMT (UK)  »
If anyone has access to this newspaper, could they please point me in the direction of the Births, Marriages, Deaths announcements, please?

I have looked at it before (ref from aghadowey) but just can't locate the section on the page - all I can see are Chancery notices, job adverts and Cod Liver Oil.

I'm trying to locate the announcement of the death of Dinagh, relict of Charles Atkinson of Ballintain, Co. Sligo.

A col ref would be fine as I have full access.
