They must be overwhelmed right now as the link "appears to be broken".

Hi Tam,

Thanks for that. I've just tried the WVR addy and it seems to work fine - I've checked the link in my post also, again it seems fine. It's worth the effort - they have a Scotish burials database and various other materials of interest.

Tried again, several times, even via their blog. Still no joy I'm afraid.

There is a pop up screen which comes up inviting you to sign up - do you have a pop-up blocker? Possibly it is preventing you from accessing this, and therefore access to the site? I'm not a technical bod, I'm afraid, but you could perhaps try contacting them for advice - see http://corporate.familylink.com/page/contact.html . I have tried again, and am still getting through, so I supect your computer may be preventing you from access for some reason.

Hope this helps,

Chris
