Hi, it's been a few weeks since I last signed in so apologise if this has already been covered - had a quick look but couldn't see anything,,,,?

My problem is that when you've looked at someone on the census for say 1901, the drop down box seems to of diappeared on the left that you could change the census year to so you can then trace them back.,,,,,

had to click on a new year lower down that then gave me a blank lookup box so I had to fill in all the persons details again.....

Whats going on Genes as this is going to become very time consuming and annoying ???

Is it only me that this bothers and frustrates ?

I think this thread has a previous discussion about the problem:

Unfortunately most of the helpers on the boards don't use census records on here so are not familiar with their usage.

Oh sorry, I've just noticed your original message predated the thread I mentioned.

Hi KenSe, i tried the search like you suggested on the other thread but this way was still very annoying as i had to keep pressing the back button to get back to the origional search page but thanks anyway X
