  1. AIF Service Records

    I know Brightsolid promised them last year & I know Brightsolid promised lots of improvements which have not happened but how does Brightsolid explain why Ancestry can put AIF service records online before they can add them to Lives?

  2. merge facility please!

    I'd like to be able to merge facts. Also it is a bit confusing when someone else can change facts. Someone has added wrong place of birth and title for my great uncle. I have changed some things but not all....thanks

  3. Merging seed records

    In the course of identifying men for my communities, I've so far identified (and informed admin) of hundreds of examples where there are 2 or more life stories for the same person, due to the seed records not having been deduplicated when they were added. Sometimes it's where a man has MiD or other supplemental cards. Sometimes it's where a man has a medal card plus RAF records. Lots of reasons. In most cases, at the time I find them, nobody has updated the life stories. So merging them at that stage would simply require one of the life stories…

  4. What Is The Extent Of Missing Life Stories?

    HMS Defence was sunk at the Battle of Jutland on the 31st May 1916 with the loss of all [903] on board.

    A list of those casualties has been obtained and is being used as a ‘check list’ to bring the appropriate ‘Life Stories’ into a ‘HMS Defence Community’.

    Now that this exercise has been completed it has been possible to ascertain the extent of missing ‘Life Stories’ which can be categorised as follows:

    Royal Navy Ratings Joining Before 1899 = 92

    Royal Navy Reserve = 53

    Royal Marine Light Infantry = 46

    Royal Marine Artillery = 39

    Royal Navy…

  8. Date formats

    All dates should be forced to be entered nn month yyyy (e.g. 09 August 1912 - i.e. spell out/abbreviate name of month). Otherwise what will happen with, e.g., USA users - what will 09/08/1912 mean to UK/Australian vs USA users?
