With my ADMIN hat on - posting to boards and lists

It is rare that I take my admin hat on and post ex-cathedra, and even less often now I have cut down on the nunber of boards I administer but I still look after the same handful of very quiet lists.

In reply to an offer to email details privately I wrote today to

It is aways best to post the the full details to the list, preferably as a family group with date place, birthplace, occupation - in the style of an 1881 census entry or a wedding certificate for example - and the answer - including failed searches - to the list.

The dialogue gets archived for future researchers, including yourselves if you have a bad computer failure, or for living cousins to find you by.

It particularly it pays to post village and farm names in my experience - and it is easy for the rest of us just to delete our version when we clean out our mailboxes

regards to all
