Has anybody managed to get a result from this site yet? click here

I thought that at this time of the day it would be quieter than normal.. Couldn't get on it all day yesterday. Got the site o.k. today but that's as far as I can get.

It said 'database is busy'

I think the problem is that having had so much media exposure in the past few days, it can't cope.

I'm sure that people will soon get tired of searching the distribution of the Beckham name (as was instanced on Teletext yesterday) and similar pointless exercises things will be a lot easier.

I remember when Friends Reunited first launched and that was impossible to access. Now they seem desperate for anyone at all to look at them.

"an error occurred"

  Macscouse 22:31 31 Aug 2008

Entered the site yesterday without any problems.
According to the site, the two major cities with my surname are Chester and Aberdeen. Having been involved in researching my surname for the last 15 years, I know for a fact that there are only two families in Grampian (I live in the vicinity) with my surname, and neither lives in Aberdeen! In the Highlands and all regions north of the Tay, there are only three families of my name on the Electoral Register.
I know that we have more family in Merseyside than anywhere else.
I'll take the site with a pinch of salt.

I'm surprised the name Macscouse exists at all. I've never met any, even in Liverpool. TIC

Not been able to get anywhere with it today either, except as far as our other members i.e. "an error occured" and "Data base is busy".

Macscouse is the Gaelic for Bingalau, daddy.
