Yeah, Elaine, but I was really posting abt using both the local index and the GRO index to (maybe) resolve who wed whom for the general readership as well as you - course, the example I had handy was your folks as I'd just looked it up a couple of days back.

For ref, Elaine's main (non-geographical) thread is:

No, it wasn't me - but anyways, showing in the addy box at the top of your browser is the URL for this page:

http://www.genesreunited.co.uk/boards/board/genealogy_chat/thread/1324836?page=1
My browser (Google chrome) actually hides the 1st 7 characters, but they're there.

Click your cursor in the addy box - this usually highlights the URL.
If it doesn't, click your cursor on a linkless part of the page, then try again.
If all else fails, you can highlite the URL by clicking your cursor at one end of the URL, then dragging the cursor with the right button down thru to the other end.

Once you've gotten the URL highlighted, type Ctrl-c (i.e., hold the Ctrl key down and type c). this copies the highlighted stuff to your clipboard after emptying it.
(The clipboard's a hidden location in memory - well, hidden for ordinary users.)
Now click your cursor in the target location - a reply box in the example - and type Ctrl-v. That does the psste (but doesn't empty the clipboard, so you can click again in the reply box, and type Ctrl-v again, and get another copy of the URL pasted in, and repeat that as often as you like.
[There're other ways of doing the actual copy and paste operations, and the related Ctrl-x = cut, but I normally use the way I posted]


Actually, it's not normally a good idea to start readers in the middle of a thread, so rather than

http://www.genesreunited.co.uk/boards/board/genealogy_chat/thread/1324836?page=1

it's usually better to use
