  1. Improve from Evidence does not work - you click on it but nothing happens

    This is a bug and needs fixing as I cannot currently add anything to a record

  2. Your search facility is very fussy about the format of forenames and initials

    I originally only found my relative Reginald Victor James Bell under service number plus surname. now I have submitted evidence he appears as Reginald Bell but not R Bell. I fear many people will fail to find their relative and give up.

  3. Change the order of Life Story page

    The Life Story page would be more engaging if the facts/images/stories were at the top and the first things seen with the 'add to a life story' and evidence list below.. What does anyone else think? At the moment you have to scroll down through the 'data input' parts before getting to the interesting parts!! Thoughts??

  4. Have records from the Royal Flying Corps been entered yet?

    My grandfather was in the RFC. I have his service number and have searched by this and by his name and I cannot find him although I can find his medal card on the National Archives site.

  5. Battallion / Company Searches

    I have not got this far yet, however it would be really useful if the battallion and perhaps company details of each person can be populated and then searched so that it would be easy to locate soldiers who fought together. I'm thinking that if I have group photographs of a certain battallion it may be of use to other people who are putting information on this site.

  6. Allow unsourced information e.g. from family

    My great-uncle is on this site and I have masses of information, photos and artefacts, none of which can be sourced to a website or URL. There seems to be no means of placing this information at the disposal of others.

  8. Adding Facts to a Life Story, the 60 sec video runs to fast for my old eyes!

    The video is too fast. Not enough time to read all the helpful hints.

  9. Allow unlimited text length for Life Stories

    I have been writing an account of the life and experiences of my ancestor. This is in full 190 pages long, and my abridged version is 19 pages long. When I submitted this as a life story I was told that only a maximum of 2000 characters are allowed. Will there be any opportunity on this site to record such extended accounts that would enrich readers' understanding and pay the most fitting tribute to our ancestors? Furthermore, will there be the opportunity to incorporate both text and images in combination in (say) a PDF file version?

    I have a picture which i believe is my Great grandfather but I cant tell what regiment he is in by the picture. How about a gallery to upload pictures to so more knowledgeable people could add details of regiment, ranks etc

  12. Flag all Commonwealth Nation Soldiers and Identify ANZACS.

    Currently Australian Imperial Service (AIF) are listed as British Army from the Medal Index. They should be listed correctly as Australian Army as denoted by AIF rank details.

  14. A bug in the editing

    when I re-edit to add date of birth and death, the death date shows where the birth should be next to my Grandfathers pic. So I went back and deleted the death, left in the birth details and they do not show where the birth should be. Now nothing shows... is there a method of adding that I am missing?

  16. Editing personal knowledge after it has been entered

    Where an item is added as 'personal knowledge' would it be possible for the person who added it to edit it? I added something and then decided to add more from the same source, but don't seem to be able to do so.

  18. Ablility to delete facts WITHOUT deleting evidence

    I have reported a problem whereby I accidently added a duplicate of Joseph Croft's wife to his page. One was from the Marriage Transcript and one was from the Marriage Certificate. Unfortunately because I then edited the Transcript version both are now from the Marriage Certificate. There is no way to delete the duplicate fact without removing the Marriage Certificate evidence at the current time - and I've added a LOT of information from that certificate.

    In addition someone??? has added a third iteration of spouse to Joseph Croft attached to his medal card? Not me!

    Please find a way…

  19. Link to Dashboard at top of page

    There should be a link to the Dashboard at the top of the screen wherever you are in the site. At present it means scrolling down and finding the link, and this is not possible on all pages!!

  20. 'Who's address' needs to corrected to 'Whose address'

    In the summary of added facts, 'Who's address' should be 'Whose address'. Possessive pronouns never take an apostrophe and 'who's' is a contraction of 'who is'.
