Hi MC. Was just coming on to say that I'd been sent a copy and to mark as answered.

Such a sad tale. I didn't know anything about the existence of this child. I was testing out names when I saw her father's name in the newspaper archive.

How do I mark as answered please. :-S

It's in the heading of your first post, alongside Edit and Delete.


JustDinosaurJill Report 13 Nov 2012 18:03

Hi Andysmum. No it isn't. It says 'Report' :-S :-S

Just to join in - I couldn't find the 'mark as answered' option on a post I initiated the other week - had a look again today and it is still not there as an option (thought it was just me)

Hi JannieAnnie.

Not just you. I called up a thread of mine on Find Ancestors and the facility is on there. Maybe I should have posted the request on there instead. It's that balance between where to ask questions I suppose.

Thanks also Andysmum.

Hope you're both having a good day.

Very odd!! I looked at a thread I started, on this board, and it was definitely there.

I've just checked again and I'm not seeing things!!


JustDinosaurJill Report 13 Nov 2012 22:45

Oh how often do I see things and then they're gone. :-D

Do you ever wonder if someone is playing a trick on you?

Hey ho.
