Hi, am I being dumb because I can't read anywhere where it tells you how to start a new thread :-(

The 'add topic' you used to start this thread is on all the boards in the top right corner :-)

Ahem! You just started a new thread asking how to start a new thread!

Oh dear stupid me should have explained myself better hahahaha...
Yes I know I started a new thread but ... I want to ask my question in the right place.
i.e.. under my previous post but new subject? does that make sense?
P.S and of course I am under the blanket but peeping out haha.. appreciate the humor .

Hi Janet , if you want to ask another question on the same thread you can always edit the title to read something like "Please see page 2 for new query" or " Help still needed see last post" something like that what you mean? :-)

I have 2 threads going now lol ..neither with what I am trying to do :-S
my new thread was going to be a question about "volumes and numbering"
i.e. if A was the same name as B but had a different volume number could they still be of the same family?
Now there you see I have just put my question in this thread>>> was it the wrong way to do it??
Hecky thump I am confused :-S

lol Janet so am I now :)

But I would suggest if you haven't already done so, just go to Genealogy Chat board and put a query on 'Volumes and page numbering' there.

But if it helps any this is an example from my own family

1883 birth
Fishlock Florence Ann Brentford 3a 90

1884 birth
FISHLOCK William James Brentford 3a 71

note same place is same vol 3a...these two happen to be siblings

1884 birth
Fishlock William Henry Brentford 3a 104
is not related.
