Not sure if I have done this right. Just wanted to say thank you for the tip on finding previous posts. I came on here a few years ago and everyone was very helpful. Came on today to try searching again and am totally flummoxed, I have forgotten how to do things.

Going to try what you have suggested

Hi I am new to this site and Forum, but I am a member of other Forums and for the life of me this is so confusing in trying to set up a profile Avatar  >:( I have read various threads on this site over the past hour trying to figure out how to do it, I know all about Shrinking and use Resize my image as a tool. I read on one thread on this subject go to Profile the Roote chat Profile information click on I will Down Load my own picture the Browse remembering to Change Profile once completed.

Now when I go to Profile I do not get any of these options Why ? ::)

I am beginning to think and I may be wrong that one has to make over three post before any thing happens ? If that is the case why not just tell me that to begin with, rather than me trying to figure how to work this site. If that is not the case Please help this exasperated new member

Just in case I need to make 3 post for Pandora's box to open I will introduce myself.

I have been working on my Family tree since 1982, long before the internet, I was initially researching my Great Grandfather after my grand mother passed away in 1979 and I received his WW1 Discharge Certificate coloured and framed dated 25 may 1918 having been wounded in the Great War. I had his Regimental Number and unit Royal Engineers I made contact with a retired Lt Col in the USA who was an expert on the British RE, he confirmed that he was a member of 183 Tunnelling Company RE, it was not until 2010 that I was able to obtain his full military papers from Ancestry where I discovered that on his Attestation papers 30th September 1915 landing in France 17th October 1915 that he served for 7 years and 155 days with the 2nd BN Seaforth Highlanders from 1883 to 1889, this was a Revelation to me as I myself has served 25 years 254 days in HM Armed Forces, and my Grand Mother never talked about her fathers military service. I have now over 600 people on my FT dating back to 1500's. My personal line I can only get as far as 1777 in Northern Ireland, require help researching parish records, I am the 14 of the same name.
Will continue in post 3.
Kind regards

My Family Tree is on Ancestry "Dunn" My main interest is in military history and I am a member of the "British Medal Forum" also the "Great War Forum" also the " Victorian Wars Forum" these are excellent Forum with experts in there field and more than willing to help any one with a question from identifying Medals, working through Medal Rolls, access to Unit War Diaries, specific uniform identification etc.

Kind regards

As are our Rootschat experts on the Armed Forces (and other) boards  ;D
