To all New Members to this site - Please DO NOT use the Private Message function to contact me as your first option when joining this site!!!
For some time new almost every new member seems to have taken this route and, to be honest, I am absolutely fed up with it!!
I don't mean to be rude about this but I am not a Personal Private Researcher - I am merely the Administrator of this site and I do my best to try and help everyone that I can with their queries. I also have my own research to look after and I am a volunteer firefighter so I do actually have plenty to do outside of helping people here.
From this point on any New Member who attempts to contact me via PM as their first option will be Ignored!!
I want to make it clear to all that the Open Forum is the place to make yourself known and to begin posting your queries. We have many members here who jump in and help on a regular basis and plenty of others who might be just waiting for YOUR query. And by posting your queries and other information on the open forum you have the opportunity to get help from others researching the same families. You may even find the one person who might be able to provide you with links to unknown branches of your family.
So please, help us to help you by doing the right thing as a new member and posting your queries for everyone to see!
