Lincs to the Past website query
« on: Monday 19 November 18 20:59 GMT (UK) »
I have come across this website which looked promising but all I can see is thumbnail size images. I am using an iPad and tapping on the image doesn’t magnify it, just bringing up a blank. Does anyone who uses the website know whether it is malfunctioning, or is it just that I need a “proper” computer to use it?

I have never had any success viewing on an ipad. Best to use a computer.

Thanks. iPads definitely have limitations.

May I suggest Ipad users contact the site owner. She might then be able to help in some way.

I have a 5th generation (2017) iPad with the latest ios but I’m getting nothing. Searching for Gosberton baptisms which include 1821 I can see the page numbers and navigation buttons but no actual images are displaying. How odd ???
