Hello All, Whilst searching the site I discovered something strange. In the past I have clicked on properties for each name I find to check the id numbers to see if they are from the same household. I had already noted the id numbers about a couple of months ago and today I discover that they have completely changed!! Ids that once said that two people were from the same household are now completely different!!! Also each time I check the id of a person it changes!!! What's going on!!!??? Most perplexed, Gillian
