London and Middlesex / Westminster images disappeared from FindMyPast?
« on: Sunday 06 September 20 23:15 BST (UK)  »
I just went back to have another look at a marriage in Jan 1851 and all I can find is a transcript, but the full image used to be there.  It was at St Pauls in Knightsbridge.

Does FindMyPast no longer have the rights?  Are they available anywhere else?

The Common Room / Being 'sealed' at FamilySearch
« on: Thursday 13 February 20 05:34 GMT (UK)  »
I've just been playing edit ping-pong at FamilySearch with one of my ancestors.  She (not my ancestor) kept adding an additional wife Helen, but Helen must have been married to a different man with the same name.  She (not my ancestor) detached Janet because she thought my ancestor was married to Helen at this time. 

She just mentioned that my ancestor is sealed to Helen and his two other partners, so isn't sure what to do. 

I can't find where to see the 'sealed' status - is that only available to members of the LDS?

Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs / Probably England - clergyman?
« on: Monday 13 January 20 00:13 GMT (UK)  »
I'm looking through a photo album which a cousin has loaned to me. 

I think this photo is of a clergyman who was born was born in the 1820s and lived to his eighties.  Many of the photos are as old as this but the men are in suits rather than a coat like this. 

Would this be the attire of a Church of England clergyman at this time?

Thank you for your help.

The Common Room / LIVING people on FamilySearch. I am ropable.
« on: Wednesday 27 November 19 04:40 GMT (UK)  »
During the day I've noticed some inaccurate busybody has been editing my ancestors, and not always correctly.  They've just added my living parents and marked them as 'deceased'.

I've gone to edit this and it doesn't happen immediately - FamilySearch has to review it!

I'm not happy at all.

I appreciate opinions on where this record says Godfrey's father Robert is from please

Yorkshire (West Riding) / Sir Robert Swift of Rotherham
« on: Saturday 28 September 19 13:17 BST (UK)  »
A thread about Sir Walter Blount reminded me of this fellow and his profile at FamilySearch.  Is it just me, or do others think it's very unlikely that in addition to his time in London and up at Hatfield Chase in Yorkshire that he was darting all over England?

Northumberland / Berwick-upon-Tweed marriages, 1811
« on: Saturday 31 August 19 21:34 BST (UK)  »
I'm wondering whether these marriages are available to view at all.

According to England Select Marriages it's on Film 1469108.  But when I look on FamilySearch it doesn't appear to have been digitised.

Am I interpreting this correctly?

The Common Room / Comments on an Ancestry tree?
« on: Saturday 25 May 19 11:12 BST (UK)  »
Is it possible to remove comments that people have put on your tree?

Today in the comments section of a tree I was looking at I put a link to an online image at FamilySearch of a baptism.  The tree had just the transcript and no images.  Soon afterwards I received a message thanking me for the link and asking me to remove the comment, which they say they can't remove.  They've taken an image from the link I provided and put it in their tree that way. It doesn't say where the image is from.

So, now I'm curious.  I have a 3rd cousin who is a DNA match.  She's not responded to messages via Ancestry.  However, I knew that generally people receive an e-mail if you put a comment next to a person on their tree, so I provided a link to our mutual gtgtgt-grandmother's grave which I knew she didn't have.  It's not on sites such as Findagrave.  I also said I have more info on this line so please check her messages and I'd be happy to send it privately. I was hoping we might connect this way.

I haven't heard from her.  She's updated her tree with the info I provided and the comment has gone.  Would it be reasonable to assume that she received the comment, deleted the person and recreated them to include the info I provided?

Midlothian / Edinburgh parish burial records - 1799.

Was there just one burial ground/graveyard in Edinburgh parish then?  ScotlandsPeople has it under Edinburgh parish.
