I put a message on this board today and now can only find it by searching my somewhat unusual name!  How do I enter it from the home page? I thought I found it in the beginning by scrolling down thro the first page offered.  I am now really confused as it seems to have disappeared!  Or is it me?

Little Nell,
Sorry about the confusion.  I cannot find the picture you show, they have mentioned a patch to update but their instructions didn't work.  So I will email and ask for the new viewer,
Thanks Abiam

Little Nell,
Thank you for that.  I got the 4.0 when I bought it and as I said it worked fine.  Is it because they've added more info that the program needs updating?
I can't understand why they don't just send me the updated 4.02 and I really do not want to give them access.  I'll email again and see what happens.
Regards Abiam

I bought the latest version of the above in December and have been very pleased with it until the other day when it when it clogged up everything, and I got the usual 'this program is not responding'.  I have been in touch with Family Search LDS by email and have tried to follow their instructions to sort the problem.
They say I have to update,with a patch, from 4.0 to 4.02.  Now after 3 lots of emails, both ways, they want me to phone them, in the states I imagine, and allow them to hook up to my computer.  I feel very disinclined to allow this.  Can I have your opinion on this please?  Also any further instructions or advice that might help.  As I've said I was finding a lot of info and now I'm lost!
Regards Abiam

 ???Anyone know how or where I can find more info on families in Fyfield before 1800?  Also Tubb in Hungerford Berkshire.  Especially Abiam Tubb  who appears to have witnessed several wills.  I include this request in Wiltshire because Hungerford is right on the Wiltshire border. 
Nicholas Dopson/Dobson there are several before 1800 but trying to connect them is another matter!  I am enjoying reading peoples requests and answers and maybe one day I'll have something to pass on.
Good luck everyone, Abiam

I seem to be the only one looking for the above in the Wilts area. 
I am looking for Nicholas Dopson/Dobson b.1726 in Fyfield Wilts possibly married to Ann.  Researching him has been very difficult as his grandson is also Nicholas married to Ester.  It seems Nicholas was a very popular name in the 16/1700's.  Here are some I've found.
Nicholas and Ann having a son Charles in 1613,
Nicholas Dobson mar. Ann Trye 1608 Preshute which is near Fyfield
Nicholas Dbson mar. Jone Bartlett 1611
Nicholas Dobson b.1672 Marlborough not far from Fyfield,
Nicholas Dobson mar. Mary Lydall 1640 Preshute
 Nicholas Dopson chr. 1678 Fyfield
There is aso a Nicholas and Agnes having children around 1620

The list goes on but I am unable to connect any.  Any help much appreciated,
Regards Abiam
