This is a real problem for me. When I have the site open and left click on a link to open it, I keep getting a pop up, usually porn, but there are other things as well. It takes two clicks and then everything works normally, until next time I open the page. Any ideas?
Need some help please. Have a family tree on Ancestry, and would like to save it to "documents" on my computer so that I can then upload it onto the Family History Site. Don't have a clue how to do it, and there isn't an "export" facility that I can see on Ancestry. Thank you for any help...
Hannah, known as Annie was my grandmother, she died 19 July 1913 aged 27. As she died in Howard st I had assumed that she would be buried in Witton Cemetery, but enquiries there have drawn a blank.
Does anyone have any idea where I might find out where Hannah ended up.
I have a death cert for a Hannah Chambers which I applied for in error. She died aged 15 in Halesowen St, and the death was registered in West Brom.
Her dads name was James Chambers and his trade was given as butcher.

Going through some of my stuff today, I found something I had completely forgotten. It is a 2d token, issued by a Samuel Anthony of the Ivy Tavern, 110 Bloomsbury, Birmingham.
I'll bet that token could tell a few tales.
I've got two laptops (no, I'm not bragging lol ) one works perfectly with my wireless internet, but the other one keeps losing the connection. It reconnects ok, but I have to do it manualy. Is there anything I can do to keep it connected ?
Why don't we have them any more? When I started work back in the mists of time, I used to envy those old codgers, sat there in their wooden hut, drinking tea and chatting, I quite looked forward to the day when it would be my turn.
I suppose the "Sons of Rest" went the way of a lot...
My wife Marion passed away yesterday at 7am. We were in bed together, with her head resting on my shoulder, when she just stopped breathing.
