Link: Downe Parish Registers
« on: Wednesday 25 July 12 20:10 BST (UK) »
Hi all,

Downe parish registers circa 1553 through 1911 are now available at:
http://www.kent-opc.org/Parishes/Downe.html

Scroll down the page until you see "Church Registers" in red on the right-hand side links panel. 

Sincerely,
Susan

Still getting the forbidden message.  It maybe because I'm trying to access the page from my iphone.  :(

...... my laptop doesn't like it either

Bearkat,

It did not work for us either when using Firefox, but we had no problem when using IE8

Regards,

Al & Al

Hello all,

@Bearkat, I'm sorry to hear that you are having such troubles.  There are a number of IPs that have been blocked from viewing the Kent OPC site, at all, at the server level, due to repeated hacking, scamming and spamming attacks.  I had to go in and "authorize" manually the IP number of my own Samsung Galaxy smart phone.  If your iPhone and laptop are working off of wi fi from the same provider it could be that your provider has been blocked.  Can you access other pages such as http://www.kent-opc.org/Parishes/Maidstone.html or
http://www.kent-opc.org/Parishes/Thanet-NicholasWade2011.html?  If not, then it is a blocked IP range from your provider.  If you can determine your exact IP address and PM me with it, I will happily manually put your IP back in. 

@panda40, Glad to hear that it's working well for you.  Enjoy!

@Alandal, We have some problems with Firefox.  The links will work if you hover your mouse over the link you want to view, right click and select "open in new tab" to view the data at the link.  If you are running an older or brand new version of Firefox you may have to find and install the "view as IE" addon. 

Just a heads-up to all Google Chrome users:  You will not be able to view the Kent OPC web site at all.  The Kent OPC site is coded in HTML 4.01 Transitional with new pages being validated by W3C as we go and Chrome does not understand anything less than HTML 5.0.  One day, when there is no more data to upload, I'll recode the website, but until then please use IE or Firefox.

I hope this helps .

Regards,
Susan

Well done Zacktyr for all the hard work and effort you have put in so far. When life slows down I would love to follow your example and share information with other in this way.
