Mark Report 31 Jan 2013 15:35

I have removed this line as i was not convinced it was part of my ancestry. Thanks

You had other thread(s) about was all that research for nothing?

To was all that research for nothing?

Obviously not, because the research convinced Mark that it was not part of his Ancestry.

That's just the way it goes sometimes.

This happened the other day when Mark was enquiring about a Rev. Armistead.

I spent ages googling around looking for information and found some useful bits and pieces.

I had no sooner posted it than Mark deleted.

I contacted him by pm and got the same wasn't part of his ancestry.

Mark, if you are looking in, please don't just delete a thread like that after people have worked hard at finding information for you.

You may discover that it is not relevant to you, but it may be relevant to someone else in the future and would save time in going over things again.

I don't think some members realise that threads don't actually take up any space on their computer..............but are stored by GR.

He posted the request....and, less than five minutes later, deleted it. Did he have a sudden blinding revelation?

An earlier thread is still the moment

With the multitude of posts Mark has on here, he isn't unaware of the correct procedure
