Talk:Family History Library Internet FavoritesEdit This Page

From FamilySearch Wiki

This question or concern has been resolved.

Only one of the six promised folders for links exist.

Both the FHL Favorites.exe file on drive G: on the patron computer stations at the Family History Library, and the Bookmark.htm file available on wiki.familysearch.org promise to include six folders, namely: British, Canada & USA, International, News, Search Engines, and World. But, in both cases, only the British folder is included.

Only one section of the Favorites will download - British. I have tried again and again. I have several people in my research classes who want the entire Favorites but can't get them.— Preceding unsigned comment added by clairjones (talk | contribs) 10 August 2011

Suggestions
1. Make sure there is really a problem. The British file is by far the largest--almost as large as the rest combined. Are the other files hiding at the end of the British file?
2. Are you careful to follow the download instructions completely?
3. Contact the owner of the Internet site. Ask him if he can provide additional instructions/help that you need to download all the files.
Alternatively, consider using the Favorites links right off the site without downloading them.
If none of these solve the problem, please contact me by leaving a message on my user talk page User talk:DiltsGD. I'm willing to look into it further if the Internet site owner cannot help you. DiltsGD 14:26, 6 April 2013 (UTC)
