The Common Room / Guy Etchells
« on: Sunday 16 October 22 16:30 BST (UK)  »
Many people will have heard the sad news of the death of RootsChat member Guy Etchells. The genealogy world has a lot to thank him for. It was chiefly due to Guy’s immense perseverance that early access to the 1911 census was gained for everyone. With research experience built up over many decades, Guy was able to offer much pertinent advice on this and other forums. His views, though sometimes controversial, always gave pause for thought. He will be greatly missed. Condolences to the family. RIP Guy.
