. . . . the creation of genealogy mailing lists and message boards, Ol’ Myrt here agrees with fellow genea-blogger Hugh Watkins of Genealoge who recently offered two suggestions for my review.
He wrote: “My own experience of Yahoo and (private) Google genealogy groups is that they live or die according the amount of look-ups done.
Both are very successful with a back office full of transcriptions and spin off websites and are worthy of your attention. Both groups have very knowledgeable local genealogists at their centre."
