Been off the boards for a couple of months - GR messed up my account then I just haven't had time to come on. But now I'm back.
Just spent a few hours going through my "hot matches" - interestingly my own name came up as a match but only with 11 relations - as I've over 300 this is a bit confusing!
Also, while I've been away have there been some change to printing out your tree? I've got 300+ names but can't print it out although I used to be able to do so before the system failed.
What's the gossip - what do I need to know?
