Technical Help / Re: Anyone having trouble signing into FindMyPast?
« on: Monday 09 April 18 17:06 BST (UK)  »
Not sure what to suggest apart from contacting them . It' obviously an iPad incompatibility problem if you've had problems for a while. I know a few people on here use iPad to use FindMyPast though  :-\

I don't like their sign in page - they seem to push signing in via Facebook!

Added - have PMed someone who uses iPad.

Totally agree Gadget, I don't like the way they push you signing in with Facebook, just so that the company and Facebook can find out more about you and share and sell parts of that information!

iPad slow but able to access information last night, then some images wouldn't load properly so tried computer and that wouldn't load some images properly either.

Looks like Joshua Wilson Warehouses to me too, this references Joshua Wilson.

Technical Help / Re: Cannot rename folder .

I'm running a different version but this might work for you.
When this happens to me I open Task Manager, go to Applications, select the one that is supposedly open and then press End Task. Then close Task Manager.
It might take about a minute to take effect but that usually does the trick for me.

Lovely clean up Mike4.

With the vest type clothes, shorts and slip on shoes some of them are wearing, together with the boater makes one think of some sort of rowing or water team possibly?
What type of sport or activity would rub off the tips of the shoes like that?
The lower part of the window they are outside seems to have a grill/grid on it in the inside. Were there any institute type places for boys in Shepparton?

It maybe that the search you are performing is returning results which are unable to be displayed, as perhaps the search you are doing at home may include some results which are not available in the library edition. Some of the records on ancestry are not available to view at libraries, see link below...

It is worth giving ancestry a call on their free phone number to save yourself wasting your time if it is limited.

Norfolk / Re: Norwich French/Dutch Church look up?

Not sure if this is any help but there are marriage banns of a Samuel DABBRICKS to a Lucy BROOKES in the St John de Sepulchre Church, Norwich on the 1st, 8th and 15th June 1776.

Ok thank you, I haven't had a chance to look yet but a previous post had said Ann just left her mark.

Oh dear, it seems I have caused so much consternation with a simple request.

Annette - I am aware there is only one David Odell in that timeframe, but it was Ann's signature and not David's I wanted to see in this instance so will not actually help me but it was worth a try.

If it is actually a register copy that I had wanted, because of copyright I am not sure if I can copy to my computer images from Ancestry trees and that is why if there were original records online I would happily transfer it to my tree, I don't want to do anything wrong and I don't know the rules on this, they seem to vary from website to website and country to country.

avm228 - you are correct, original registers can contain so much more and in one instance when I found the original register it showed that my relative had signed with a E at the end of his name, which was not on the name on the official certificate I had purchased previously and I was able to find him from that. The registrar had entered his version of the name and not the way of the name my relative went by.
Also another time by comparing a signature of a witness to a marriage, I was able to identify a sister who I couldn't trace as she had married abroad previously, then remarried again! Once I had the first married name I could track her.

John - thanks for the location of the tree. Yes that's what I have found, so many trees have differing versions of even uncommon names that you cannot trust them.
