Descendant of ag labs and proud of it.

Ros was born in Hackney, London, England, which makes her an EastEnder (although she doesn't sound like it). She has worked as a secretary, a librarian, and a Family History Consultant, and runs two One Name Studies as a member of the Guild of One Name Studies (Haywood and Murch), with these plus a further ONS on WikiTree (Ball). Ros is currently studying the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies Correspondence Course, and is beginning their course on Paleography (old handwriting).

Thank you for helping me find the Payne family GROs. I thought I was going mad not finding them.

You're very welcome. I know (from bitter experience) that the GRO can be very 'creative' in their spelling. :)

As much as some folks have such disdain for resources such as FamilySearch, Geni, etc. these same resources have an abundance of excellent information that, albeit, needs to be treated with much caution given the low signal-to-noise ratio. I agree that these should never be part of the inline references or sources, but the 'see also' section is an excellent spot for these. Of course, the problem is not everyone agrees on exactly what the 'see also' section means (see: Even worse since it is not a true section, it then falls into the 'sources' section when it really is not a source, rather simply a guide to say take a look at these places as well.

Were WikiTree in total agreement with such condemnation of less reliable sources, then they would not have created so many tools to link to and from FamilySearch.

Perhaps what is needed in cases where sources are unreliable but potentially of great help, is some way of unambiguously flagging them as such and possibly as a separate section so that one would not be mislead into thinking that they are intended as normal, reputable sources. There is one advantage to tracking unreliable sources that seems to escape most persons and that is that it affords one the opportunity to identify and counter some of the common mythologies.

Thank you, Ros, for taking the time to respond to my plea for help using one of the features of G2G. You took the time to explain why I was having the problem and how to achieve the results I wanted. Now I am inspired to go back and re-read G2G basics. I will probably use it more often now that you helped me to "break the ice."
