There should be an easy way of sending a message to GU when we spot errors in e.g. a census record index. I have a glaring one, so can you let me know? :-)

Thank you Cynthia

If you go to community top of screen....Blogs are at the bottom

Where do we find Phils blog ?


Cynthia Report 31 Oct 2012 08:22

I think many members with problems, would find it helpful if they checked the FAQs section and Phil's Blog before commenting on here.

These are being updated all the time and well worth a read. Allow time though :-D

There are many companies doing family trees, so why do you not listen to people using your awful tree?


Alan Report 27 Oct 2012 10:43

The new Keepsafe is a good start in helping keep records together but I have several questions:
How can I rearrange files once saved? To find a specific file amongst the many files I have is extrememly time consuming.
How do you delete a folder?
How do I arrange folders alphabetically?
Why can't I make a sub folder within a folder?
Why do I have to give myself a headache looking at a blurred non descript image, or any image at all, if I have not posted a photo?

If you want help in finding Thomas Flower, could you post your request on the Find Ancestors board?
This board is for suggestions for genes as regards records, not search requests, so helpers will not see it here.


David Report 11 Oct 2012 16:22

This is David Flower, Iam searching for any details about a Thomas Flower which
we think was born in Weaverthorpe East Yorkshire beteen the years (1782-1787) as shown onthe the Morman Family Search site,going by his will it is 1782. David


David Report 11 Oct 2012 16:06

E verything listed on my Tree has been found by me on other sites or Librariein the area and people message me all the time thinking they are my relitive,but I have yet to find mine through this site,can you not go farther back in time to about 1780 or so with the parish registers David ,.F


Darren Report 4 Oct 2012 15:30

Any chance of being able to just pick a family member and print their ancestors instead of the whole tree, which on mine is about 50 x A4 sheets of paper?


Cynthia Report 18 Sep 2012 13:11


Just wondered if you had formed an opinion regarding the suggestions and comments which have been offered.

I'm sure that many of the board regulars would be pleased to hear from you. :-D


Estelle Advisor Report 11 Sep 2012 10:42

Thank you to you all for your suggestions so far. I am sorry I haven't posted on here for a while, but I have been on holiday. I will be taking some time out this week to have a good look at all the suggestions though.

Kind regards,

Ay does have a lot of Scottish records including the census, but not the census images only transcriptions.


DazedConfused Report 8 Sep 2012 14:52

Sadly the contract with Brightsolid is with the Scottish Government not the English one.

The same would go for the Eire records if they were to be made available an agreement would have to be made with the Irish Government.

Both Scottish & Irish records would be a boon to many of us, but I think we are a long way from them being made available through any English Genealogy site (or US such as Ancestry).

However, I do believe that if the Irish Government can make the 1901 & 1911 census available for free that our Government should do the same with at least a few of the census years (I know 1881 is available).


RolloTheRed Report 8 Sep 2012 08:03

Gru should add Scottish records which it is in a position to do as BrightSolid is the parent company..

A significant proportion of Gru site visits come from North America inc Canada. Many Canadian families have roots in Scotland. Australia/NZ too have strong Scottish and Irish connections.


RolloTheRed Report 4 Sep 2012 07:18

John & Roger are getting themselves into a tizzy over nowt.

GenesRU has simply created three public threads where members may offer suggestions. It has not undertaken to make individual replies to any post, either on the board or via pm. So far GenesRU own follow up posts are nil - this is a sounding board, that is all.

Thus it is perfectly reasonable that other members comment on any suggestion made, for or against.

I would draw J&R's attention to the GenesRU policy that unjustified referrals may lead to a temporary or permanent ban from posting.

Calm down.

I will just ask this once. Why are PigletsPal and Jax answering these suggestions (or amending them). Ditto on General and Tree threads. Can we all do that?

You can remove what you like John I will not....GR can remove them if they wish


jax Report 3 Sep 2012 23:15

I am so sorry that the members have tried to help you Roger...

I suggest you remove your comment, as that is not a suggestion nor is the other post further down the page.

If you would like to go to the suggestion about the tree and complain about how you want the old tree back....please do....because thats ok

Just to add neither I nor Pigletspal has made any comments on that John get your facts straight
