When trying to link an existing record, the results come up with a frame at the bottom (sometimes blank, sometimes with a list of categories; e.g. Military, Religion, etc). This bottom frame covers the results of the search and there is no way to scroll down in the top frame to see any of the results.
I assume the "Needs Census" search option will be updated after the 1950 census becomes available next week. However, I've noticed a problem with the function. I generally put the full date in from the census (i.e. Reside: 1 APR 1940) but the search does not recognize this as a valid census entry and includes all such records as still needing the census. This issue makes the option essentially worthless when I search my records.
I'm not able to see the distribution of people in my branch. When I open "Places: State & County Resources, " it shows two US maps but the numbers do not match my branch (I suspect they are yours, Ray; 18467 in North Carolina - I don't have that many people in my branch and only 14 in North Carolina). I've tried selecting my branch on the seach function on State& County page but it does not change the maps/numbers.
I've notice the past few days that the FamilySearch site no longer has the images available for many of the census years. Does anyone know if this is a permanant situation? There is just so much information available on the actual census form than is available in the summary.
For the last couple of days I get the following message; for every new entry, even though I've already done that, with sources.
"When possible, please always try to put in at least a speculated birthdate, based on dates of relatives, and a birthstate. This aids duplicate checks, feasibility checks, and finding new relatives. Read More"
Find A Grave rolled out their new format today and this site no longer recognized the URL in the current format. For example, the old format was: https://old.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=11785103 the new: https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/11785103/thomas-oregon-king
At the moment, there's an option to use the old format but I don't imagine that will last.
I've occasionally received answers from this feature along the lines of "cousins, 3 times removed" (note, no number for the cousin). I got such an answer today when I was checking on a relationship but, upon examining the linages, I realized the person was my great, great uncle, not a cousin. The details are here: www.ourfamtree.org/relate.php?relate=443437&id2=443256
You can see John William Ramsey and Fidelia I Ramsey are siblings, so John is Ernest's uncle, James' great uncle, and my great, great uncle. Is there a simple fix for this?
