What the H*ll!!!!!.....why has this been RR'd?


Gigi Report 19 Jul 2013 14:55

Hi Londonbelle

Yes that's it!

Don't know why my thread has been referred??!!

Thanks very much



Londonbelle Report 19 Jul 2013 14:57

You're welcome, Gillian.... :-)


AnnCardiff Report 19 Jul 2013 15:02

could it be that you have another Rammell thread on the go? just wondering - still no need to report it though


Londonbelle Report 19 Jul 2013 15:11

Possibly AC.....but I do think, if that is the case, it is a bit extreme! Surely, a friendly post pointing this out would have been more appropriate! At the end of the day, I'm sure the GR reviewing Team have better things to do with their day..... :-)


AnnCardiff Report 19 Jul 2013 15:23

true - rather than report it, the person should have just pointed out - one thread per family


Gigi Report 19 Jul 2013 19:48

Hi All

I was requesting specific lookups on Ancestry that I had done myself but as I no longer have access was asking if some kind person would supply the info, which you all have, thanks!

So cannot understand the problem??!




Dea Report 19 Jul 2013 19:54

Don't worry about it Gillian,

It will sort itself out eventually...........

Please ask away for anything you need !!!!!

Thanks Dea!

One GR member has a major problem...............some sort of fixation about threads which mention Ancestry.

We can only hope that GR will one day deal with this member appropriately...........
