I very often see a thread where the poster only has a few posts so I write to them with a standard message I have saved to tell them they have replies and how to get back to their thread.

Just a nudge up

It would also be helpful if those who have sent a PM could advise the person on how to return to their thread.

If several other people have helped out, then the OP can return to acknowledge their advice also.................... we hope!

It would save me a job too :-D :-D

Could helpers please also mention on the thread that they have sent details of Address's.Births, Marriages ect by pm

This has happened a lot lately and it would save anyone else using credits on when they do not need to, or wasting time looking up things that have already been found

Edit - 7/7/2012

It still seems as though there are members replying direct to the poster but not mentioning this on the thread. It is becoming very annoying to other members who are therefore duplicating what has been sent
