It’s probably the site.

Try contacting support@genesreunited.co.uk

They’d be able to refund your credits. You may not get a reply for several days.

In the meantime, if you’d like to tell us what you hoped to see, and even copy & paste the preview, members with a full sub can look on your behalf.

Members are always willing to do look ups.

Brilliant Sylvia thanx ever so much for this greatly appreciated.

She was abandoned by the children’s father Samuel stoupe who scarpered to Canada in 1910 .The eldest child Samuel born 1903 ended up in children’s home in Belfast 1909 so I’m guessing she couldn’t pay the ridiculous amount of £5 imposed. No sign of the father being brought to court for wilful neglect grr . All so sad .
If this was March it was possible she was pregnant with Thomas John Stoupe/Stoope as he was 2 in 1911 Census with her . No birth cert seems to exist for him.

Thanx again x
