A collection of historical and genalogical records

I was not familiar with StackExchange til I was asked to sign up for a Genealogy Q&A site.

I am not sure that yet another general site is a good thing - the further the questions are spread, the less chance they have of being answered.

But maybe I have that wrong.

The proposed Q&A site for genealogy enthusiasts, family historians, professional genealogists, "transitional" genealogists and serious amateurs is still pre-beta, but you can have a look to see how it might work, and if you think it a positive addition to our research options, you can 'commit' to it to add your vote towards the 200 needed for it to proceed to the next stage. 

Follow this link: 

Stack Exchange is a fast-growing network of sites on diverse topics from software programming to cooking to photography and gaming. it claims to be an expert knowledge exchange: a place where physics researchers can ask each other about quantum entanglement, computer programmers can ask about JavaScript date formats, and photographers can share knowledge about taking great pictures in the snow.

Making conections

The more information you can give about the people you mention, the more chance there is of someone else connecting with your family.

Dates and places of births, deaths and marriages all help to place families.

Professions also help.

'My great-grandmother mother was a Douglas from Montrose' does not give many clues to follow up! But a bit of flesh on the bones makes further research possible. But if we are told who she married, what his profession was and where the children were baptised, then we can get to work.

Maybe it is time to update the information in your profile?
