Type in a name..........!!

The advert on TV, for Anc.

'Type in a name, and see where it takes you'.

I just typed in Billy Bunter, and it took me nowhere.

I think they tell fibs.

Re: Type in a name..........!!

Well......someone has to test the theory.

I don't want my fellow Family Historians, being led down the garden path, do I.

Re: Type in a name..........!!

Anc are only really interested in profit rather than customer satisfaction. It is the same with many production companies, profit comes well before well being of the staff.

Re: Type in a name..........!!

I tried again, a moment ago......Roger Rabbit gave no results either. Strange that.

Re: Type in a name..........!!

Strange that, because if you type Roger Rabbit into the Census section of fmp there's at least one in the 2000-2002 UK Electoral Registers, more if you tick the name variations and typing in Billy Bunter throws up loads of William Bunters in the Censuses from 1841 onwards.

Not much cop as a site then, but I think that has already been established!

Re: Type in a name..........!!

What makes it a bit more difficult with Anc. I don't have any subs.
