- Exact map locations and historic maps.
- Finding relevant entries is easier because you search at town/village level.
- You can search for 'nearby' entries.
- It is easy to edit or delete your entries.
- People will also find your entries via Google searches.
- No spam (the system sends messages between members; no email addresses are visible).
- Free to join, add entries, and search by village or surname.
- Advantages of being a paying member (£5.50/year) include: you can contact and be contacted by all other members (free or paying); you can receive email alerts when people add entries for towns of interest to you; and you can list the URL of your Web page or blog.
- Give some thought to the wording of your entries. They should be concise, with surnames in capital letters. Specify dates, and use appropriate punctuation.
- For large towns with many entries and multiple pages, I delete my entry every year and immediately resubmit it (updated if necessary) so that it reappears near the top of the list. I did this recently, and within 24hrs a local historian contacted me and offered to send transcriptions of land records for that surname/town!
