I would like to be able to copy & paste the names from the Explore More drop down on the Relationship Finder, so that I can look at them later.

Put you pointer on the first letter or the first word and hold down the left click and drag across text to high light it then right click and click copy then paste it into a word document or were ever you want it.

To get the HTML contents of the 'Explore More' drop down, right-click on the box, then choose 'Inspect'.  The dev tools window will open (in many browsers). Go to the highlighted 'select' element in the 'elements' window and right-click. Then:  Copy > Copy element. Paste that somewhere. The result is not pretty - something like this:

<select id="trailSelection" onchange="showTrail();">

<option value="19270465"> (3/1) Jack Beacall&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</option><option value="19271157"> (3/1) Mary Jones&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</option>

</select>

... but you have the people and their IDs (the values are their numerical IDs, which you can use like WikiTree IDs - e.g. https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/19270465 - should take us to Jack's profile.)

I hope that helps.
