"First World War Site Launches" Article in On the record

As I am currently reseraching the WW1 soldiers listed on my village war memorial I was particularly intersted in the article "First World War Site Launches" in the On The Record section of the latest WDYTYA magazine (July ed).

Initially I thought what a great idea for individuals to be able to add details of WW1 soldiers to a readily available, on line record for any one to see. But then I started to think ...

Vivid II and D of Well 2 [Issue 88]

Many ship names that appear on RN service records are shore establishments or moored training ships and are known as 'Stone Frigates' in the RN. It is helpful to prefix these names with HMS and Googling them shows photos and descriptions. I believe that the second ship annotated in shorthand refers to HMS Duke of Wellington and the suffixes: II and 2 refer to them being the 2nd respective ships of that name to have ...

Genealogy on the Go Article June 2014 Issue

I've just read the article in your latest magazine about genealogy on the go. You mention that with the Ancestry App that the downside to it is that you cannot search the Ancestry databases directly and that the App only views the hints indicated by the shaky green leaves.

Well I have discovered that if you select somebody in your tree, so it displays the additional information to the right hand side, then select "Gallery" ...

Duplicate Topic 12 Lamb Lane, Greenwich

I posted a request for help in the General Research Queries forum on Monday 12 May at 5.09 p.m. I checked the following day to see if anybody had replied, I sent a message to JaneyH thanking her for her response. This morning I received via email WDYTYA newsletter and in the "From the forum" saw my request for help, this prompted me to look at it in the online forum.

My query today is ...

Attachments missing

I posted a reply email with 2 attachments. In general research
Both showed up ok
When I next went into forum the mail was there but no attachments ?
What have I done wrong ?
Do I repost the attachments or do I do 50 lines by hand or is there a limit
I hope I have not offended anyone.
I was told by phone there was no limits

June 2014 issue: Focus on Criminal records

I am surprised by the articles in the June 2014 edition "Focus on Criminal records" that no mention has been made of the various series of records at The National Archives (TNA), Kew. In particular the records of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP series, some are indexed by surname only or are including in "and another/others" as in the case of Dr Crippen), the HO Office files (series HO), the Prison Commission files (PCOM) ...

Live web chats

Hi
Who is the guest this week and what type of questions will be required ? Can it be made plain where the post should be, it looks as though questions and answers are being posted on 'Live web chat' that could be in 'General Research'.
Will we get a better response to the posts? It was rather like waiting for the paint to dry on Friday . I was most disappointed not to receive ...

Accessing original images via FTM 2010

I am using FTM 2010 and I have an Ancestry account.
My problem has only occurred in the last few days.Up to then I have had no problem for years!
When I click to view an original image of say a Census or Baptism record using the FTM I get a BLACK screen. If I click 'Related content' the loading symbol just revolves clockwise 'for ever'!
If I view the index at the bottom of ...
