Can someone tell me what I have done to my ancestry menu? Used to be across the top of the screen. Now I'm lost trying to search for anything I haven't previously saved in my favorites

Has it been changed? First time this has happened to me. Home page  has a sort of menu on the RHS

Devon / Macarthur Family - Stoke Damerel Parish

Spelling varies - Macarthur, Mc Arthur, MacArthur

The Macarthurs (John and his nephew Hannibal) are well known as early Australian settlers.  Following the family back to England, James McArthur and his wife Catherine Hawkins had 14 children - 1783 to 1798. My query relates to some deaths.

In 1824, James aged 72, and his wife aged 66 were both buried on 13 February 1824. One of their daughters Mary, aged 39 was buried 30 October of the same year. Was there an epidemic or some other reason that may have caused them to die at the same address in the same year?

thanks for any ideas
