  1. Query re citing mother's surname

    I should have asked this before, but does the IWM prefer the mother's maiden name to be cited or the married name or both? If both, how should the surname be cited?

  12. Merge duplicates for George Gedge

    https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/1319563 Private George Gedge

    https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/6707427 AM2 George Gedge

    RAF records confirm these are the same person. Please treat 1319563 as the duplicate because I have put more information in 6707427

  13. Cannot remove a photo

    I have tried to remove a photo that I took and posted on a life because another subscriber copied it it without permission and shared it on Facebook in an attempt to start a crowdfunder without getting permission from the family concerned. Despite two attempts it's still there. As it is my photo I retain copyright. As the image has caused so many problems I want it removed.

  15. Big data: a question

    Is the software capable of analysing the big data created by all the entries? I am wondering if you are able to analyse the factual entries.
    If so, I will make sure my father's 'facts' are as good as they can be. So far, I've concentrated on the story.

    Thanks also for this great resource and all the help so freely (and quickly) given.
