One for Roy Stockdill . an open letter
Dear Roy !
I wish I could get you to make a quick and nasty web page using Family Tree Maker 11
and its auto publish function by filling in forms
Self publishing is the way to go
and it is so easy to do on the web
it will cost your £29 for a single CD in a flat pack
from the usual suppliers
and about one hours work assuming you have a gedcom to import
I have just done a stint as a transcriber with FreeBMD
and I call it learning how the other people live.
increasing my knowledge of genealogy today by doing these things
as a volunteer
It will all give you something else for you to polemicize
about - with authority based on knowledge not hear say
I think you should join the blogworld
I find I am upt o 150 000 words - with very much quoted text
and over 3000 links
Several books have turned up as spin off from bloggs and the latest news is a film contract based on
Hooray for Bloggywood http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/film/3707111.stm
my own blog http://hughw36.blogspot.com/
has in the side bar links to the web pages I manage
my policy in blogging was to force myself to write every day
I am also creating a corpus - a body of text - which I can mine for a book or two in the future
as you could your own reportings to build your 3 volume autobiography
early years of a Watford Yorky
cheque book journalist - doing the Liberace
All at sea in genealogy

what do you think about this :-
NEW U.K. AND IRELAND RECORDS COLLECTION DATABASE
YORKSHIRE: ADEL PARISH REGISTER, 1606-1812 (Images online)
This database contains a transcription of the parish registers of
Adel in Yorkshire from 1606 to 1812. Parish registers are comprised
of baptismal, marriage, and burial records. Baptismal records
generally list the date of the baptism, the name of the child being
baptized, and the name of the father. Marriage records generally
include the date of the marriage and the names of the bride and
groom. Burial records generally list the date of the burial and the
name of the deceased individual. Occasionally burial records will
include other bits of information such as where the individual was
from or if they were widowed. Parish records can be wonderful sources
of genealogical information. They become increasingly valuable when
civil vital records are either inaccessible or nonexistent.
