Script Frenzy | Your ticket to creative adventure
I am going to be writing my first film script this month but will try and keep up with this too.

I am resting all my rootsweb lists except GENBRIT which I read as news:soc.genealogy.britain

or Discussions - soc.genealogy.britain | Google Groups see also news:soc.genealogy.britain - Google Search
RATIONALE: soc.genealogy.britain
Many Usenet genealogists are researching family or ancestors from some part
of the United Kingdom and Ireland. The newsgroup
was originally created to cater for these researchers. The charter for
that group stated "Separate groups can be formed later if and as traffic
and interest warrant."

Traffic on is growing at about 12% per month and
is now at the point where enquiries relating to Ireland are taking up a
significant proportion (about 20%) of the volume of the postings. In
addition there is a growing demand for a split. The time now seems to be
appropriate to consider such a split.

CHARTER: soc.genealogy.britain
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.
