Just keep scrolling on through the images ( see the arrow at the right of the page) and you will see a clear image showing the age...

Unfortunately on the website Iím using it doesnít seem to appear when doing that, in fact the next right hand page suffers the same issue.

What about the one after that? Sometimes there are more than two images of a page...  ;)

I did say keep on scrolling! You have to click the right arrow again - it is on the third image.

Thank you, and my apologies to Millmoor. I am new to the website and hadnít expected to find the image so far to the right! and also wasnít sure whether Millmoor was using the same website because I canít mention it by name ;D. I clearly need to learn more about the way the site works, but am finding it a fantastic resource and well worth the money. (My best find on the website so far is a will from 1729, which neither I nor my dadís cousins knew the existence of, despite many visits to the record office it is in: the index card there has obviously been missing for many years!)

of course you can say where you saw it!

I got a mildly slapped wrist the other day for mentioning a commercial site by name, and the moderator deleted my post, so I thought Iíd be banned if I transgressed again. ;D

I did not see your post but I doubt it was removed by a moderator for naming a commercial website, naming commercial sites is done every day as can be seen just by scrolling through the forum indexes, it can also be shown that those threads are not removed by looking through the indexes of 2017 and before.

Perhaps the moderator concerned would like to PM me so that I could understand otherwise it seems as if certainly the three big website are favoured at the expense of the smaller websites, but I do not believe that to be the case

Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.

There is certainly no ban on naming commercial websites.  In fact if you try to abbreviate Find My Past to F.M.P. but using no spaces or punctuation, Rootschat automatically fills it in, like so

FindMyPast

Some posters seem to dislike naming Ancestry in full, and put things like A*, but there's no need.

There was another genealogy site that wouldn't allow posters to name commercial sites, which was ridiculously unhelpful.  One of the reasons I gave up visiting it.
