Technical Help / Re: Firefox doesn't display favourites

Perhaps this is what you'd like:

On the menu bar click on Tools. Go down the menu that opens and left click on Settings. A page opens that will show, on the left side, General, Home, Search etc.  Click on Home.  To the right of these options, there should be one called Firefox Home Content. If there is not a check mark beside Shortcuts, click in the empty box so that one appears.  Close Firefox and then re-open it. Hopefully this is it.

Hi Roobarb,

If you click on the three lines at the top right of the Firefox page, scroll down the options that appear and select More Tools. From there select Customize Toolbar.

At the bottom left there are four options. Clicking on the word Toolbar, you have the option to select Menu Bar. Click on that.  From there you can choose how you want your Favourites displayed - in the library symbol or on the address bar with the bookmark symbol. Just left click on the choice you want and drag it up to the right side of the address bar. If you decide you don't want it there and prefer to find your sites by looking in Bookmarks on the menu bar, just right click on the symbol you added to the right of the address bar, and select delete.

Hope this helps. Marion

The Common Room / Re: Youtube for Family History
« on: Wednesday 23 October 19 19:56 BST (UK)  »

YouTube can be a great resource for family history research. I've read of people finding old videos of ancestors performing activities such as tight rope walking.  For myself, I found a video of a cousin's wedding. The cousin lives in another country and I wouldn't have known about the marriage let alone been able to "attend" the ceremony without YouTube.   Marion

One place to look is the Royal BC Museum.

To find your fellow, I had to search with just a last name, male, and just put in the year.

Frequently you can see the actual death registration but sometimes not, and sadly, this is one that is without the image.  However, it does give the registration number etc. and an email address. Maybe you could email them about getting a copy.

The Cissie in my family was really Mabel.

Hi Kim,

The cause of death codes were revised over the years.  This site has a lot of information that will hopefully help you:

Hi sancti, That's an interesting point you make.  My geography knowledge of the area isn't very good and I didn't think about that.  I'll keep it in mind as I work along the family. Thank you for mentioning it.

Pennines, It was a fun get-together and I came back with lots more family history information.  Now to get to work verifying everything.

Thanks for everyone's input!

I'm going to a family reunion tomorrow and taking the print with me, so I wanted to be prepared for any questions.  Pennines, the next time I get to the FHL, if I can look at the digitized version of the film, I know now that there will likely be a first page and that page should have  the key.  Our local one is closed for the summer, so I'll add this to my "to do" list.  I'm happy to have the photo of the information showing the family connection and I'm sure the family will be too.

Thanks very much for helping with my puzzle.  Marion
