Great to see all this interest.  :)

I'm waiting for Berlin-Bob to come back with the ok to go-ahead from the moderators (collectively, so to speak).  I've asked that the list be stickied on this board so that it is "visible" even when it hasn't been added to for a little while.

My original proposal was for "family history" "websites". 

I think this means websites including those in blog format (but not message boards), and those sites that support family history research (not just the histories of families). 

There's time before actually setting up the list to debate my "ruling" above (I'm not passionate about that interpretation, so I won't be upset if someone wants to put forward an alternative view).

I also have it in mind to include as the components of the list:

- the rootschatter's handle,
- the link to the site, and
- a brief statement about the site and any particular features eg  "ancestors, including trees and biographies, plus baptisms for Dunresearching parish church"

Again thoughts on this welcome too

[I was trying to work out how to use tables in a post - but can't get it to work.  Can anyone enlighten me on this?  ::) ]

Thanks again for your interest  :-*

Hi Julian  :)

Bob showed me how to do it when I ran those how many rootschatter threads but I've not got it on this machine.

However, if you go to this site:

http://www.rcmf.co.uk/4um/index.php?topic=13828.0;wap2

and scroll down to Tables, it gives you the code

It's best to do it in an HTML editor program first  - I remember that bit  ;D

Here is my web site - only really useful if you are researching in the county of Suffolk, although you might find items of interest such as the Links and Resources page which lists national and international sites, not just Suffolk.

Dear all

Thanks for your support.  I have now set up a list at http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=336023.0

I suggest keeping this thread open to discuss the list.  For example, I am open to further refinement of the list (having mastered simple tables in BBC code!), so this thread is the place to make any suggestions.

Well done Julian

MODS - please could Julian's list be stickied near the top of the board so that it doesn't "get lost" over time

cheers
