A Better Index?

Postby pre1837 » Sun Mar 08, 2009 11:13 pm

Could we have an Index which shows all Threads. At present it is so easy to miss New Treads as the 'latest' in a catagory is the only one listed.
Interested in the surname SNELL circa 1910, Middlesex. and Claudia Vail nee Snell, living and married in Canada from about 1912/16.

This would be a good idea as sometimes people may want to go back and add to threads that have not been accessed for several weeks or months and it is very difficult to find them.

I'll look into this. I tend to just log in and then look at posts since last visit. You can also use the search function which I find useful when looking for particular topics. The search box is in the top left-hand corner and I do worry that it gets 'lost' a bit there. What do other people think?

I always use the "Posts Since Last Visit" function.

It makes sure you don't miss any new posts... and especially new threads.

I would recommend this to anyone!
