Thanks for posting. This is a wonderful resource! Tip: you can zero in on an ancestor by doing a Google search on the surname, then "site:" and the URL. For example, do a Google search on "preston site:www.thepostmagazine.co.uk" (without the quotes.) This trick works for most websites, by the way. Great when there's no search box. Thanks again!
