    Apologies for the link problems. We thought we had them fixed, but it’s still pointing to the old PDF. We’re working on getting the guide fixed ASAP. Thanks for your patience!

    i don’t see the point in paying for a subscription as I have hit a brick wall. My grandmother was born in a workhouse to a domestic servant in Liverpool. That’s as far as I can go. Tried everything.

    I am looking..for Sexton..for the past 60 years. Nelson, my husband, Grandfather Jesse Coleman married Mary Catherine ‘Kate’ Sexton Coleman. We have reason to believe that she was Jesse’s third wife, and Mary Catherine ‘Kate’ had one child when they married(don’t know where), her name was Naomi June Sexton Married William F Fortner. But have been unable to find Sexton. First found her in 1870 in Catoosa County, Georgia

    I have been waiting to download Ancestry Genealogy Toolkit until all the glitches were resolved. Any word on whether all the Swedish and UK are functioning now? The idea sounds great, anxious to see what it is all about.
