The Common Room / Passing away of RootsChat member John, ' JDC'
« on: Saturday 16 July 22 10:39 BST (UK)  »
We are very sad to hear that John has passed away.

He died on 26th June 2022, aged 69. His obituary, provided by AMG Funeral Home can be read here:
You may add your condolences there also, which will give comfort and support to his loved ones.

A recording of his funeral service can be viewed here:

He was a popular and active member of RootsChat giving much thought and insight in his replies, known to us with his username of 'JDC'. He was active on the site up to a week before he died. His last post was his attempt to find out about his grandparent's mantel clock.

We hope now he is enjoying hearing all the answers as he meets his ancestors for himself.

He will be very sadly missed by us and we express our deepest condolences to his friends and family.

The Stay Safe Board / Finger length could determine risk of Covid hospitalisation
« on: Wednesday 06 April 22 11:07 BST (UK)  »
An interesting article on the prognosis of individuals who catch Covid, based on finger length.

You have to hand it to them - to find a link. They must have thumbed through a lot of data.

Here is the article:

Essentially, the short version is that they looked at the ratio between the lengths of the fingers. The ratios give an indication of testosterone or oestrogen that was present as the body developed.

They appear to have found a link that is supported by the data. Looking at the ratio of the length of the index finger to the ring finger. The length of the little finger, and differences between the two hands.

Naturally there will be variations for individuals that will have a large bearing on outcome - so don't frighten yourself if you stare at your hands and start worrying.
