Hello Bob,

References to old handwriting in the Lexicon (unless I've missed something) seem only to be under 'Old English in Wills' which refers to the following thread:
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,239704

May I suggest that cross-references also be indexed in the Lexicon under 'Handwriting' and 'Old Handwriting' and 'Palaeography' and 'Secretary Hand' and 'Scottish Handwriting'.

Thanks and regards,

JAP

I don't know if the word Pomology  is a suitable candidate for your Lexicon.

I found it when researching a forebear who had been Head Gardener for the Duke of Hamilton in Edinburgh.

Pomology:-

The science of fruits and the art of fruit culture and anyone who follows that science is a Pomologist.
 
I find it a very appealing word !

Kind regards..........

Hello Bob,

A suggested addition to the Lexicon is:
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,318060

It might be added to the existing index under:
IGI
Extracted/Submitted Records

or (preferably?)

as a new index entry such as:
IGI
'I', 'C', 'M' batches without source information

Another thread related to this is at:

Added :) Thanks

Hi Everybody,

We need your help for the RootsChat Reference Library project.

Ever noticed that some questions get asked again and again ?
The idea of this Lexicon is that we don't keep repeating the same information again and again,
but simply point to some good RootsChat topics on these subjects.

This is the lexicon:
   Topic: RootsChat Topics: LEXICON of Genealogical Terms and Abbreviations
   http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,234766.0.html


If you see any useful, informational RootsChat topics,
defining words and terms found in the census, certificates or
parish registers, or elsewhere in your genealogical searches,
then please help expand this lexicon by adding the RootsChat topic link here.

But not external links, they don't belong here.

I'll delete them from here, when I've added them to the list.

Sometimes we have some suggestions but no relevant topic.  I've entered the term with topic ??
If you can find a good explanatory topic, that would also help.

You're the users, so it will be great if you can point others to any other good topics.

Thanks,
Bob

Are you Polly? I read a message by you about Bartholomew Kelly. I wrote to you under the name Gorry? If you still read Rootschat plaese contact me. You had Kelly coat of arms on your message.

Are you still adding abbreviations?  If so then here's a couple of suggestions:

SNWM: Scottish National War Memorial

IWGC: Imperial War Graves Commission

Imber
Skewis (Wales and Scotland), Ayers (Maidenhead, Berkshire), Hildreth (Berkshire)
