Ah the browse images online just wasn't responding on the iPad, (it did after about 10 mins) much better on the laptop.
So click on the image of the camera.

Maybe it depends on your connection, where you are or both, I always find FamilySearch very slow.

Got there - thank you.  A huge amount of information but better than winding a handle on a noisy wonky machine in a cold office with time running out.

My immediate aims are:
(a) the parents of Lucy Harris who married G S Hill 1834
(b) Confirm the parents and speculative ancestry of Marabella Hemsworth who married John Hill 30-7-1797
(c) See if there is a will of Matilda Richardson who died 1880 looking for a clue to her birth name (especially if it was Sweeting!)
Richard Wernham (Berkshire 18th century),
William Hissey (1805 to 1813, Hampstead Norris),
Kapirin (Siberia 19th Century),
Kitching 1850,
Mary Howse born 1806 ish,
Chris Truelove marr. John Pocock 2-7-1696, Kintbury, Berks

Was excited to see the memorials online except that they don't tally with the memorial numbers I have from Nick Reddans site. Volumes and date ranges are fine but most don't contain the Mem no associated with that Vol.
Any known issues?
Many thanks
Stephanie

If you have checked the indexes on family search and found the memorial online and it differs from Nick Reddans site then do let him know.  Nick will update his site if errors are found.  Remember to enclose the details you found on family search including the URL and image number of the film to save him time redoing the search.
