Hi,
For some time i have been contacting people via ancestry and getting no response.
They can't all be rude!!
I also tick the send me a copy of my email and thats not working. Have contacted ancestry and they admit that the copy thing is having probs.
Could someone kindly let me have a name, preferably slightly unusual so that I can find it, and the name of their tree on ancestry.
I will then test the system by sending a message and if you reply via ancestry that too will test it.
Many thanks in advance
Jeanie

You can do my Alonzo Crawshaw Siddle if you like. I'm down as StarryEyed500 I think. I'm not sure if he comes up as Crawshaw or Siddle though lol

Is he on the private or public tree?
Can't find him on either, i'm afraid.

Sorry, hold on I'll check.

Yes, he's private.

Hi Tracy,
I must go and start tea.
Will look in later.
Thanks for your help. I have had probs searching for people on ancestry trees before.

When searching for a name, does it always put their surname in the Father's name too? mine does. I have to delete it to find the ones I want. Alonzo doesn't have a Siddle father lol

Have just sent you message via ancestry. Sorry, hadn't noticed the link.
However, he wasn't coming up on the search!!

Haven't received it. That must be where the problem is.
Will contact ancestry after tea.
Many thanks again
