We're raising the curtain on over 100 original items relating to modern British theatre, online for the first time.

Terence Rattigan, Harold Pinter and Joan Littlewood. These are just some of the leading 20th-century playwrights you can now explore on our #DiscoverLiterature website http://bit.ly/2waXbjG

I found I had lots of indexes linked to my trees on Ancestry so I have been doing a clean up. If I have an image of the original linked I remove the index entry. Otherwise I only keep an index if it is needed to obtain a copy of the original not available as an online digital image. I always explore conflicts in indexes or transcriptions as errors abound.
This illustration is different to a transcription error and if we are not familiar with the area where we are researching we can easily miss that we have an alternative name for the same place. I have places with the same name within a county which have been incorrectly indexed in the past so I am careful to check.
I wish more people who work on shared trees were as careful that they had the correct location.

Tony do the actual settlement examinations exist for these removal orders. The settlement examination I found for my ancestor was most revealing and if you were able to find the actual examination it may tell you more regarding the circumstances Mary Hallam found herself in with Thomas being away.

I have not done any categorisation for a while and am reading the help pages to refresh my memory.
I set up my Name Study which at the moment is centred on the UK. I am trying to add categories for the english counties.
I have categorised in the past but wondered if anyone had any shortcuts to share.

I really like this concept and can see bloggers finding this a very useful tool. I could see it being used to bring together lots of information you might otherwise miss.
Can it link from your blogpost back to the tree structure?
If somebody found the blogpost could they then see where they fit in the family?
It might get some who have stopped blogging to have a rethink.
