When looking on Web Sites associated with Ancestry information how can i save the information i find to a folder on my desktop without having 3/4 files with other information that i do not want / need. The information i want is shown in a second file which is great but when i delete the 3/4 files i do not want it removes the file that i do want also. I use Windows 7.

Hi bjmw,

What is the method you are using to download the webpage? Are your right clicking on the webpage and choosing "Save as.." or using an alternative method? The 3 or 4 files you are getting are likely the style-sheets associated with the website, without them the website would be nearly impossible to read.

Thanks,

Scott
