Derbyshire Lookup Requests / William H Bacon b. 1897 Belper
« on: Wednesday 06 December 17 13:35 GMT (UK)  »
I have the above m. 1925 Belper, Gladys M Holmes.
I am trying to find details of Gladys, i e. birth and death,There is a death Gladys M Bacon 1941 Ilkestone aged 31 = b.1910, that would mean she married at age 15 ?, Looking on free 1939 for William H Bacon i find one in Ripley with a Gladys M Palfreyman ( Bacon) plus one other, maybe a child ?.
Any suggestions on identifying Gladys without resorting to marriage certs?
                                                       Thank You bodger

Guy, you hit the nail on the head, i think i have problems, searching my computer for "GEDCOM" i get 4 results

1   Type paf file, size 860 KB, Modified 15/11/2017 (i think thats because i looked at it today)
2    Family GEDCOM, Modified 14/10/2013, Type Win Rar Zip file, size 176 KB.
There are 3 of these identical apart from a 2 minute interval on modification date

When i open the paf file above it shows  1840 persons on the individual  list, the paf file i use on my computer has 3277 individuals.

It would appear i have a lot of back tracking to carry out , or would it be possible to merge and  update the GEDCOM to my latest version ?

What is and what do you do with a WinRar Zip file, iv'e a feeling that when i backed up my files  years ago it automatically saved as the above file.
I have my current paf file saved on a back up disc and on a USB , and this is where i think i went  astray ?
                                                              Thank for your response, bodger

Error: The file you have specified (paf5.exe) does not appear to be a valid GEDCOM file, please try again.

Above is the message i get from Ancestry when trying to export my current file to them. Anyone know how re validate , ie, should i try sending to another source to see if it's accepted , any advice welcome. bodger

Further to previous above, my father was in the RAF at the end of the war, not sure what his position was but he was at one stage in Denmark involved in repatriation of refugees.
