I think that FindMyPast should hire some 'bug finders' to iron out the intermittent problems. It does get a subscriber a little 'tetchy' when you aren't getting what you pay for. Sometimes I hear my old boss shout his famous saying (in broad Scots as well) 'it ain't fit for purpose'.

Saying that, I was going between Ancestry and FindMyPast at the time and Ancestry was really slow to stop.

It definitely wasn't my connection.

Have been using Ancestry a lot today without any problems.

I was doing a lot of updating to my tree and I've noticed that it can't handle those when they come thick and fast (links/pointer, etc or whatever they use in DBs these days!).  I use FindMyPast for the records and ancestry for storage.
