A 'MISSING' BOARD
« on: Monday 15 June 20 13:01 BST (UK) »
I wonder if we could do with a board where we could list those who seem to have disappeared with out trace.

We would put brief details  --  their name - possible place/date of birth and the last sighting.

e.g.  JOHN DORRINGTON - Whittlesey - b.1852 - 1891 census.

What is wrong with just posting on the normal general boards, too many different boards just add to confusion

If you are looking for John Dorrington after 1891 isn't he in Yorkshire in 1901 or is that another John

Hi,
Is that....Whittlesey Cambridgeshire also Whitteslea?
He was married to Amy and in 1901 he was still in Hunslet, Yorkshire.

I totally agree.  This is what many of the threads are concerned with, so why another board  ::)

Probably best not to carry on with this search as zetlander already has other topics on John Dorrington.  ;D

I think a review of which boards we have and which we don't might be useful. It amazes me that India, Ceylon, the West Indies and South American are clumped together with with the rest of the world under "Other Countries, but "Family Bibles" get a board all of its own. 

The other thing is deciding just which board is best for a query. For sake of argument - A prominent known man, leaves a known large employer in the UK. Boards (with his wife and family) a known ship in a known port and sails to a known port in the US. He travels to Canada and settles in Ontario where he produces more children and grandchildren and dies 60 years later. If placed in Ontario, Canada, then the people who frequent the board dealing with his birth town will not see it.   

Or should everything be posted in the common room and be left to the Mods to sort out?

But it will get picked up on Google  :)

You could have a 1939 Register board as well, but it would just create more boards to confuse people as this site is a big site.

Seems John Dorrington is found in 1901, so 10 years on from 1891 he is accounted for.
