Hello
 5 months ago I bought Family Tree Maker through the Tesco Club Card scheme. The software offered 6 months subscription to Ancestry which I took up. The 6 months was added to my account. Later I bought another Family Tree Maker as a gift for someone else which I ended up keeping for myself but have not yet installed.

My question is if I install it on my second computer will ancestry give me a further 6 months or not?
It would be useful as I find Ancestry subscriptions prohibitably expensive.

Technical Help / Able to revert to old format in ancestry?
« on: Saturday 02 January 16 13:41 GMT (UK)  »
Hi
The first time ancestry introduced the new format you were given the option of reverting back - does this option still exist? I hate the new format and find it difficult to navigate  but I cannot find any options to change back.

Family History Beginners Board / Rectifying a major error I have made in ancestry.com
« on: Wednesday 04 November 15 21:16 GMT (UK)  »
Hello
Even though I have been researching and adding to my tree for 5 years I have now discovered I have made a major but basic error. I have linked my GGGG? Grandfather to the wrong parents and ancestors.
How do I rectify this - I need to give him the right parents ( I currently have him as the son of a cousin of his father). How can I link him to his rightful parents and ancestors without him appearing as a new member? I am sure his descendants are correct so they will need to move with him.
Can any one help? (I have also posted this in another board as I wasn't sure which would get the best response.)

Derry (Londonderry) / Isabella Mackey and Edward McGrath
« on: Monday 06 February 12 22:50 GMT (UK)  »
Hello All
I have been unsuccessfully searching for the marriage of Isabella Mackey and Edward McGrath. They both had links to Derry. Their marriage would have taken place before 1847. They arrived in Liverpool between 1865 and 1871 and settled there.
Can anyone point me in the right direction to find birth and marriage records.
Thanks

Occupation Interests / Dead Wall Decorator?
« on: Monday 03 October 11 21:04 BST (UK)  »
Hello
Looking up some Liverpool relations and following them through the censuses I came across 3 brothers whose occupations were
Artistic Advertisement Inspector
Bill Poster
Dead Wall Decorator - this was in 1901

Was a 'dead wall decorator' someone who painted those advertisements that you can still see on the sides of Victorian and Edwardian buildings?
I found it interesting.

Australia / Elizabeth TASKER (nee ARROWSMITH) born Ormskirk 1846
« on: Tuesday 02 August 11 18:47 BST (UK)  »
Hello
I have recently discovered an ancestor of mine sailed to Melbourne in January 1913. Her family grave in Southport, U.K has an inscription that she died in August that same year.
Elizabeth was 67 years old and widowed and travelled alone. How can I find where she died?
I would also like to know why she went to Australia and who was she visiting?

New Zealand Completed Requests / William Walmsley born in Liverpool 1832 COMPLETED
« on: Monday 01 August 11 20:26 BST (UK)  »
Hello

I posted this on the Australian board but have since found he moved on to New Zealand

I have gained information from an earlier post that William Walmsley, a surgeon and grandson of my GGGG Grandfather Richard Walmsley and his wife Mary Parkin, emigrated to Australia with his wife Sarah White. William's parents were Edward Walmsley and Ellen Wiggans, the daughter of John Wiggans and Ann Gifford.

I would be interested to discover more of William and his family's history.

Regards

Jo
