Family History Beginners Board / Brick wall in finding father
« on: Wednesday 21 December 16 22:09 GMT (UK)  »

I have hit a brick wall which i fear i will never break through.  My late nan never talked about her father other than to say he was not a nice man and was never around, yet she was one of 5 children, all of which had their unmarried mothers surname and no father on their birth certificate. They were all born between 1914 and 1934.  One of them, the youngest, is still living but when i wrote and asked they said they did not know for sure who their father was - they had an idea but weren't willing to give me a name.
Where do i go from here?

Norfolk / Ancestry look up please TODD

On there is a Public Members Photo section ( Could someone with a subscription (not pay as you go), please search for "Mervyn Eustace Todd". There will be several photos of him and his wife Gertrude Emma Bindt in Australia. I believe him to be a relative who was born in Rougton, Norfolk. I would be grateful if someone could give me further info and the email contact of the person who posted the photos. Unfortunately PAYG does not let me see anything more than just the photo.

Technical Help / FreeBMD problem
« on: Sunday 18 November 07 16:27 GMT (UK)  »
I've been having a problem with accessing the FreeBMD website ever since its last November update. Everytime I go the FreeBMD home page I get the "Advertisement" text at the top of the page but nothing else. The IE progress bar moves up very very slowly and seem to halt after several minutes. Anyone have the same problem?
