There are 4 levels - 

Guest - sees the tree and can tell if a person has a partner and if there are children. If you tick the gender of a person, the guest will be able to see the genders, but Nothing else. 

Guest Plus - Sees everything , which includes living people. 

Contributor - Can add information to your tree (usually dates and places of B D M). 

Editor - Can do everything! Except locking you out of your account. They can remove the whole tree. I do not know anybody who I would trust enough to give them Editor status.

I think all the big retailers are giving Halloween a miss this year. Our local Tesco and Sainsbury have Christmas goodies out, but nothing for Halloween and they don't usually miss a trick!

Here we go again! Frighten the life out of everybody when the main reason the number of cases are going up is because they're finally doing more testing.
 

NO 

The number of cases will still be the same regardless of whether they are teasted or not.

I have heard a couple of explanations for this - 

1 - It was a male oriented society. The head of the household sat, others stood and children sat on the floor. 

2 - The style and design of the dresses. They were just not made for sitting in as they spread out too much. 

3 - Lastly (and rudely) The picture was taken on the morning after the wedding night - He couldn't stand up and she couldn't sit down. 

All my family studio photographs from that era are of the same format.

The Common Room / Re: Someone in a census record who shouldn't be there

I have mentioned this before, but I was listed 3 times on the 1981 census. 

Automatically on the RAF return as I was living in barracks. 

On a friend's return as he had filled it out a week before hand, but I could not be there as he had a medical emergency on the day. 

On a girlfriend's return, where I actually spent the night.

The Lighter Side / Re: Semantics.

Most people in medical professions would consider a natural child to have been conceived without the aid  of any external procedures, or medication. 
Not sure I agree re medical professionals as most that I know would be able to apply context to their interpretation and be aware that the same phrase could mean different things depending on where it is used. 
 

I could, of course, be wrong pharma, but isn't natural childbirth considered to be without interventions?

The Lighter Side / Re: an opinion please

I too agree. 

I have found that legal documents tend to "bundle" all the information about a person together and usually after the person has been introduced on the document.
