Topic: Gatewayed with the soc.genealogy.britain newsgroup for the discussion of genealogy in Great Britain and the islands."
: "Newsgroup for Genealogy in Great Britain and the islands.
One of 25 Usenet Newsgroups in the soc.genealogy hierarchy
Soc.genealogy.britain replaced soc.genealogy.uk+ireland in the reorganization of that group."
Soc.genealogy.britain is an unmoderated group for genealogy and family
history discussion among people researching ancestors, family members,
or others who have a genealogical connection to any people in Great
Britain. This includes England, Scotland, Wales and the offshore islands
such as the Isle of Man, and the Channel Islands.
The group is open to anyone with an interest in genealogy in any of the
populations in or from this area, including, but not limited to: people
who live, lived, or may have lived there; emigrants; immigrants;
colonists; residents of former colonies; and their descendants.
The scope of the group reflects language, history, migrations, and the
realities of researching public records and genealogical data archives,
and includes questions of local customs and history, or of regional or
national history which affected the lives of these people and which are
difficult to research in the present. Posts may be in any language but
those seeking replies from a wide spectrum of readers (or at all) would
be well advised to post in English.
The focus of the group is on the genealogy of individuals, as members of
ethnic groups, and as part of migration patterns. Postings on topics
unrelated to genealogy, especially relating to current political or
religious topics are not acceptable.
Postings concerning general surnames searches are not welcome and should
be directed to the soc.genealogy.surnames newsgroup or to any
appropriate subgroup that may be created. Postings containing MIME
attachments, graphics, binary or GEDCOM files, and program listings are
also not acceptable.
