Everyone beats me to it!
« on: Sunday 27 January 19 23:38 GMT (UK) »
I try to come on this wonderful forum once a day, scroll down the new posts and think, I can help.  Then I see loads of people have already been there and solved the problem! 
I must say I am amazed at the knowledge and the generosity on here!
I'd help more, but I'm always too late  ;D

I know what you mean, Claire64!

However if you keep looking and trying sometimes you can nip in ahead of the experts.,....

a challenge in itself, let alone the researching!!! ;) ;) :o ;D

Keep at it.  Even if you are a bit "slower" it is a double confirmation of the information  :-*
Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
Remember - "They'll be found when they want to be found" !!!

It happens to us all Claire...I often find useful info on a post only to find that by the time I have typed what I have found and come to post, I get a red warning that that someone has posted ahead me, and yes, you've guessed, they got there before me with the same info ::) ;D ;D
