Did you get the census up to view it


Catherine Report 10 Feb 2013 15:10

Have just been trying to view original but doesn't open on correct page?


GlitterBaby Report 10 Feb 2013 15:14

go to view the image and it shows as image 3 of 49

Change the number 3 to 28 - so it reads 28 of 49

You should find them


MarieCeleste Report 10 Feb 2013 15:15

The image opens OK on FMP, was there something you wanted to check?


Sylann Report 10 Feb 2013 15:15

Thank you

Thinking I was doing something wrong


GlitterBaby Report 10 Feb 2013 15:16

You are not doing anything wrong but Ancestry seem to have the pages a bit muddled up


Sylann Report 10 Feb 2013 15:22

Thank you I was just going through each page


Catherine Report 10 Feb 2013 15:26
