I bit later than I intended as I was not sure how to deal with the answers to the questions 3-7 without quoting too much from the book.
I decided to go with discussion linked to yesterday's post.

I hope to expand on some of the answers in further posts which I hope to post next week. Have not had time to complete how I would wish this week.

I particularly liked *There is no way of verifying who wrote the entry and any challenge to what is recorded would have to be verified with other records in order to challenge or correct any erroneous information. This can only be done if reliable official records exist where the informant is unlikely to have lied."

This is really what we do as genealogists - ferreting out the truth. 😊

Finally managed to get Find My Past new Family Tree. I decided to start from scratch to avoid adding any errors from my other trees.

Hilary, is the Family Tree only for paid subscribers? I have a sub, but don't know if I always will (I doubt it, really). I can't seem to find any info on the site about the trees, just the options to upload one or create one.

We were discussing the influence of broadband speeds on the use of Social Networking. This should help us in Wales get a faster connection.

Sure hope so! Broadband internet will become as commonplace as cell phone coverage.

I have been doing family history research since the turn of the century. I am in the UK and my research has been UK focused. I am not an expert but I have a lot of experience in UK research.

This is the best B & B we have stayed in with the great choice of Vegetarian options we were spoilt for choice. We visited late autumn and hope to return again when the weather is warmer. The canalside location allows for a pleasant walk devoid of the hazards of traffic in a rural location.
