How do I amend the details of one of my ancestors. I clicked on the name and went to 'edit' and updated the information but didn't know how to save it. So it appeared unchanged when I closed the edit window.
An anyone help, please.

There's a 'save' button at the bottom of the profile box. Its possible that you may have to reduce the magnification - try Ctrl and -

FYI Some users have reported site difficulties even when they have used the Save button.
