That sounds really interesting, I had not seen that dataset on there so thank you.

I don't know how I have done it but it is letting me right click the image and save it but I have had to do one page at a time.  I was playing around with the film strip icon next to the (1-12) pages at the bottom of the image on the person that I was looking at.  It does not enlarge too well though for reading.

Sorry, were you expecting to download/save all 36 pages in one go?  I thought it was always a case of one page at a time. 

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

Playing around again and the 'green Save' box in the corner is now giving the opportunity to download to computer.

I've tried various ways and it does look like the only way to download it is one page at a time. Not brilliant really.  :(
;D Doing my best, but frequently wrong ;D
:-* My thanks to everyone who helps me, you are all marvellous :-*

It won't let me choose a page  ::)

Have you tried clicking the filmstrip icon then checking the green save button result.   It is being a bit hit & miss with me.

Not had that problem, I've just checked on the images for a divorce I first downloaded some time ago, and I can choose any page within the total of 11, and save to my computer.  Strange!

I would try looking at the same record with a different web browser. You might be able to see the button on a different one.
