The Common Room / Find My Past 500 error message
« on: Saturday 27 May 23 10:59 BST (UK)  »
I can log in to my FindMyPast account, I can fill in the search boxes, I press search and get the 500 error response. Is anyone else having this problem? I havenít used my account for around 7 days but not had this problem before.

When I had a new laptop some years ago which had Windows 10, Family Tree maker was installed and everything moved over. It wasnít the newest version but it worked.

I have had to have a new hard drive in the laptop and borrowed the disc for family tree maker to be loaded again but unfortunately the disc loads but wonít open. This is the same disc that was on before.

The computer shop is totally bemused as to why the disc wonít load and Iím panicking about all my family history.

Any ideas beyond borrowing/buying a different disc?

My new boiler was fitted today and is slowly getting the flat up to temperature. Two very nice young men all masked up the whole time, they arrived at 9 and left at 4.30. I was here all the time in my study doing family history until the lap top had a hissy fit and froze! I had a little kettle coffee milk and biscuits with me. They were very tidy and cleaned up everything. Another hour and the flat will be warm. I might sleep tonight as I wonít be worried that I might not have heat tomorrow!

The Stay Safe Board / Diary 25 December Christmas Day

Definitely a Christmas Day like no other. I went to my church for the Christmas morning service at 10.30. The preacher announced the first hymn ( not for us to sing) and the organ made an extremely loud fart like noise and stopped and the lights went off. Alarms could be heard from nearby and yes youíve guessed it a large area had a power cut! The organist moved to the piano and the preacher fortunately has a carrying voice as the microphones no longer worked.

Arriving home no heating, lights or cooker. About 12.20 the power came back but my heating didnít. Out came an old convector heater so the lounge is warm the rest of the flat is freezing. A friend delivered my Christmas dinner which was absolutely delicious and she tried the heating but we think the pump has gone wrong.

In some respects I wasnít surprised at todayís disasters thereís been enough of them the last 9 months. Soon I shall get a hot water bottle into my bed, Iíve already got out a big fleece blanket for my bed.

Family History Beginners Board / Lost the address search on FindMyPast
« on: Monday 06 January 20 09:24 GMT (UK)  »
Having just continued my FindMyPast membership I went to do an address search on FindMyPast.

First I discovered no separate 1939 Register appeared at the top of the page, then I eventually found the 1939 within the census records but no address search which is very annoying.

Anyone know how to find the address search in the ďnewĒ site? The colours are horrible and so wish washy!

The Common Room / Anyone know the cost of credits on
« on: Thursday 02 January 20 19:47 GMT (UK)  »
Iím trying to get the address of a relation who I suspect has moved from the address I have. I have been asked by another relation to inform the person Iím looking for of a death in the family. I only need 2 credits but as far as I can see I have to register before I can find out the cost of credits. My question is does anyone know how much the credits cost? Many thanks.

The Common Room / BT Phone Books on Ancestry

Anyone else having trouble with these? It doesn't matter which name I put in it always tells me noone of that name. I've tried with my own name where I know I was in the phone book but nothing!
