    My other search engine...


    ...seems to now have working links to pages and some grave registration docs are also appearing. For example you can see where German nationals were buried before being moved to Cannock.

    I suspect this is in error and they will close it when they find out (it has been closed twice in the past), however I believe the intention is to put this data on the system sometime.....


    An example:

  3. Hello Geoff,

    First let me congratulate and thank you worlds for you indeed wonderful search engine, which I've been using for years as a means of easily finding casualties.

    But in the past few days or weeks, I can't access any of your engines anymore, nor the root website www.********.com. I get the timeout error everytime. Am I the only one in this case?

    I checked my settings and it doesn't seem to come from me, because I don't think I changed any of them since I could last access your engine. Do you have a ban on foreign access (or on me :) ) in place? Or has your website been overloaded of late?

    Thanks in advance for your kind response.

    Sorry to hear that Michel, it all seems to be working OK. No overload. The site root is www.******** - not .com, is this the problem?

    You can now search on CWGC for some Foreign Nationals. See attached image.

    My search feature for this was closed since some countries did not give permission and I was asked to change it to only allow those who gave permission for records to go on line.

    Germany allowed, but some others (one is French) did not give permission.

    I'm in awe as to how you have succeeded so many times in running rings round the CWGC.
    Don't get me wrong, I believe the CWGC to be one of our most important database assets, but why do they throw more money than has proved needed at trying to replicate all you have done, as a one man band?
    Top man, sir, I'm sure this will be an invaluable asset for researching a wide range of burials and commemorations..

    I noticed the foreign Nationals inclusion last week however it does not provide (for me) any results no matter what parameters I seem to lock in.

    I often get 404's from CWGC. Try again later, usually works.
