Hello,

Is it me or is this site almost impossible to use. I have been clicking all over the place  for the past 20 minutes and have finally got to somewhere I can type a question. Please tell me in simple terms how to use this site before it drives me batty.

I have some photos (well sort of photos) I would like to be made a bit better does anyone know who can do them for me. They are of my 5 great uncles who served in WW1 all at the same time.

Many thanks

Will

Hi Will

Here's a quick link to the free photo restoration board.

http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?board=298.0

Please take a moment to read the guidance notes at the top of the board before you post.

Thanks

Dawn

Don't know why I took so long to actually register on this site - I've been browsing it for ages.

The first few times on Rootschat can be a bit daunting for some people. 

In the beginning (2004) it was a lot easier as we didn't have the sheer mass of topics and replies. As of writing we have just under 4 Million postings so we need a structured layout to make it easier to find topics of interest. 

But don't worry about that for the moment, just bear these two points in mind:

1) To start a topic:

  • Either go to the board where you wish to post, or,

If you are not sure where best to post, simply go to the Beginners board

  • click on the button at the top or bottom of the page, and

  • ask your question :)

If the moderators feel your topic will get more coverage on a particular board, then they will move it to that board.

2) To reply to any topic,

  • just click on the -Button at the beginning or end of any topic
You can find helpful information to most questions in the -Pages.
If you can't find an answer to your question(s) there, just start a new topic on
the "How to use Rootschat" board: http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/board,287.0.html

Rootschatters are generally very friendly and helpful, so don't worry about it, if you feel your contribution is not 100% perfect - we all learnt here "by doing" :)


By the way, we don't have an "official" site-map of the various boards, but here's a good way of finding out what we have:
  • Just click on the -Button at the top of every page.
    The search page shows a list of all the available boards and sub- or child-boards.
see also: Topic: Tip: Finding a board ....

Enjoy Rootschat :)

regards,
Bob

Greetings, just signed up and like the look of the forum.
My wife has been working on her family tree for years, but I've never been really interested, but after a trip back to NZ early this year, and talking with my uncle, I realized that I knew very little about my fore bearers. When I got to the old home town I found out I was a descendant of a local identity.
So got to get busy, and see what else I can find out..... ;)
