    I am trying to find out about some of my family who died in WW1 and 2. I have enough info to distinguish them from others, but when i search nothing appears except this window saying 'Searching'. I know there are a LOT of files on the website, but i left it for 30mins with this searching window up, and still it had not found anything. Does anyone else have this problem?

    Thanks,

    Robert

    Hi Doug,

    Thanks so much, these are the only peices on information i have about relatives in WW1 or 2 except my Grandfather in WW2. It really means alot. :)
    And its very interesting to know that harry harman didnt actually die on DDay. My granfather said he died on the beaches.

    Thanks again,

    Robert

    Hi, have been trying for ages to get on to CWGC site. "Down for maintenance."

    Anyone know, [if this is a regular occurrence], how long can I expect to sit twiddling my thumbs? :huh: [Typically this is the day I set aside to finish off my records]

    Thanks,
    D

    What is the saying Diane? What can go wrong............................

    I have been trying to get on myself.

    The site has known to be down for over a day but usually much less.

    It does seem happen more often these days, but there always seems to be a slight improvement when it's back on - maybe it's a site maintainance program?

    A tip for you - set aside, say, Thursday, to finish off your records...but do it on Wednesday! Fools them every time!!!:lol:

    Looks like it Paul. Perhaps they are going to upgrade so a search can be done by date.
    Now that would be great.
