"Hi, @noswar. Thank you for your observations and sorry to hear that you have been losing data and having to re-enter it. I'll have a look into that for you over the next couple of days and get back..."
Shared an update: TIP: Lots of people search the internet for the names they have found whilst doing their family history research. Unfortunately, where names appear in photographs, such as on shop fronts, or in the handwritten text of postcards, they can’t be indexed - but if you mention them in your descriptions they can.
If you get the chance, just mention those sorts of things in your Our Town Story photo summaries, and that will hopefully expose them to a much wider audience - potentially one with direct links to your photo’s contents! #tips
Shared an update: We have a gallery and local history forum for every town, city and village in the UK just waiting for you contributions - it's free to join, and you can help build up an archive of the UK's social history!
We would also love to make our archive available to help those using reminiscence therapy, to feed something back to the society that created it...
Shared an update: Every place profile has a “Resources” tab, to list relevant local resources, such as archives or historical societies. If you would like to see one added, then pop a request in this dedicated forum.
Shared an update: Hello! We had a major server outage on Sunday, and have been working hard to rectify the issue - involving some serious heroics from around the world!
The version of the site as it stands is not quite functioning correctly as we work to repair some minor damage to some templates, but we hope to be all back up and running properly by tomorrow, Saturday 20/10/2017 - thank you for bearing with us!
Wish your town had a local history gallery and forum? It already does! We have a gallery and forum for every town, village and city in the UK - use the county drop-downs at the top of every page to search for yours!
Share your old pictures, reminisce or just browse - you can create your own ID, or use your Facebook one!
