This would be some of your competitors. RootsChat is a major source of genealogical research. Would I use a researcher. Yes if I was seeking a family from lets say Switzerland or Poland or Lithuania. And I had the money to fund the research. I have had success on a complex South African line
from RootsChatters there. Most clients for researchers have money and the desire to trace their ancestry and the lack of their own time/desire to research themselves.

Ancestry has numerous references to one or more Grizel Durham.

Would I be right in saying that a hospital in-patient would not be included on the 1939 Register. I have a very distant relative born in Ceylon, attending a Public School in England, killed while serving in the RAF who is on the 1939 Register as a boarder at the school.

Wales / Re: Welsh Emigrants To Patagonia

I hope they did not have a hard time during the Falklands War. Not their fault!

Patagonian Welsh is the name given to the Welsh language as spoken in Y Wladfa, the Welsh settlement in Patagonia, Argentina, specifically in the province of Chubut. Teachers are sent to teach the language and to train local tutors in the Welsh language, and there is some prestige of knowing the language, even among those who are not of Welsh descent.The Welsh education and projects are mainly funded by the Welsh Government, British Council, Cardiff University and the Welsh–Argentine Association. In 2005 there were 62 Welsh classes in the area and Welsh was taught as a subject in two primary schools and two colleges in the region of Gaiman. There is also a bilingual Welsh–Spanish language school called Ysgol yr Hendre situated in Trelew and a college located in Esquel. As of 2016, there are three bilingual Welsh–Spanish schools in Patagonia.
