Thanks for taking the time to reply Marco
Limit the results by ticking various options:
I have English only ticked but still get the US Directory results and none for the UK.
You can ignore the link:
No I can't - that is exactly what I am trying to achieve (without success).
The merge and ignore buttons are greyed out because I don't have the required US subscription.
So I have a permanent shaky leaf pointing to the same 8 US records no matter what other data is recorded for the person. Her birth, marriage and death are all clearly stated as having occurred in England, along with the birth of her children.
So why is Ancestry still pointing to US records?
Maybe the surname WASHINGTON over rides all other options where US results are concerned!
(no, she isn't related to THAT Washington at all)
I am almost ready to give the shaky leaf up altogether, for all people in my tree, as it seems to be consistently pointing to irrelevant data rather than offer helpful suggestions.
