Hi folks,

New on the DNA trail & have just received my results in time to take up the offer on MyHeritage...

Can someone please explain how I download the data from ancestry to be uploaded to MyHeritage?

I downloaded what I believed to be my Raw Data but it's numerous pages long i.e. I'm unsure I've done it correctly.

Can someone please post a snip of what I should be looking for please as the MyHeritage offer ends soon?


Hi Folks,

Can anyone decipher the word with ? in this sentence please &/or anything else I may have wrong?

I've included what I've managed myself although I'm open to others' thoughts.
It's only this sentence I had a problem with & the word is nothing like any word I'd expect in the context...

"Marriage solemnized after the Subt_ty? of a Special Licence granted by The Moderator of the General Assembly of the Pres. Church in Ireland at Belfast in the Registered District of Belfast in the County of Antrim"

Image attached with enlargement of the word.

Hi folks,

Can anyone please tell me if there's a way of finding who lived at;

41-18 Vernon Blvd, Long Island, New York City, US in 1959

A few years either side may do?

I have Lachlan MacKinnon travelling there in 1959 from London, England & I know he had a sister Christina who was married to Norman Griffin Miller who may have been at that address?
