Ancestry thumbnails back on WO 363 and WO 364
For those with good eyesight this is a boon. It means that you can now see the first page in a man's series of papers. So, for instance, you can tell if a man is enlisting into the TF or Special Reserve without having to open his record. For those of us, like me, who have an interest in regimental numbers and are searching for particular types of enlistment, this is good news. I don't know why Ancestry discarded the thumbnails in the first place. Now, where are my glasses?
