Excellent post +Alex Coles. I agree we want to perform our searches and find the records we are interested in (with very little pain). There have been some real improvements with the various updates/upgrades, but please don't forget that some researchers want to be able to focus and drill down into record sets. The commercial genealogy providers need to satisfy both the new researcher and the experienced researcher (since you are taking our money I think you can handle it).

Have you ever thought about trying to record the character of your one-place study? Using base maps and community mapping notation, this month's Society HOA will focus on developing a simple method to map one-place communities across the globe.

This Hangout On Air is hosted by Society for One-Place Studies. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

It's actually 340-something so it's essentially tripled. My research feels a bit like a factory production line at the moment, which is not what I wanted, but I'm grateful to have some many interesting stories to discover.
