Morning, Crone. Sign me up as a lifetime member of SPODOM please. I have had lots of spurious information from other members. One couple managed to get married 50 years before they were born. Quite a feat I would say.


Angela Report 20 Jul 2006 08:29

No, no, Merry. You can't be a couch potato in this weather. You will have to borrow one of Glen's spare tinsel thongs and become the GR Tips Board Resident Sunlounger Potato.

Merry Monty Report 20 Jul 2006 09:12

Items required: Sunlounger - check Parasol - check Suncream - check Attractive man with a fan - check Tinsel thong - check Cool drink - check Latop computer - check Very, very dark shades for the poor man with the fan, because of me with the thong - check Shades for me - check Packet os crisps (to maintain potato image) - check Ready!!!!

Angela Report 20 Jul 2006 09:17

Well done. That sounds much better. Wish I could join you. But ... next week ... if the weather holds ... I will be joining you because tomorrow I GIVE UP WORK FOR EVER. Yippee!! Must nip down to John Lewis Sale for late night shopping to purchase suitable spangly thong. Do they do them in a size 142?


Heather Report 20 Jul 2006 10:27

Angela, re thong size 142 - may be best to give John Lewis a miss and see if there are any boatyard chandlers in the area where you could buy something erm, suitable for your size.

I'd like to join up, but until OneWorldTree and the 'let's have a bit of fun' trees on GenesReunited are banned, I'm afraid that the society will never get off the ground. When I started out with this researching, I thought that everyone else was doing the same because they were interested in their personal histories, however it would appear that there are some out there who wish to rewrite their personal histories to suit. (Candidates might include a famous author / politician and the soon to be ex wife of a famous musician). Short of developing a time machine to travel back and validate every piece of information that we are told 'is obviously true', there has to be an element of doubt in most extended trees. All we can do is continually review our trees and crosscheck each piece of data that we encounter to ensure that we have a tree that we consider to be an honest representation of the truth.


Angela Report 20 Jul 2006 10:57

Chandlers don't only sell chandles. They do sell some very lovely clothing too - nice boots, oilies and lifejackets, etc. Not too sure whether the rope would be quite spangly enough for me though. Maybe if I Google 'very large spangly thongs' I might come up with something. On the other hand, I may come up with more than I bargained for!!


Angela Report 20 Jul 2006 11:06

No, no. I am definitely not going to buy my gear from the chandlers. What kind of girl do you think I am? I am sticking out for the genuine pukka thong.

Merry Thankyou,the finishing touch needed for the programme. You know the idea,a shot of you on the sunlounger with a canvas backdrop of the Utah holdiay destination in the background,perfect! Channel hop to see if the contestant will keep the box or accept the 10,000 names the banker has offered. Send the kiddies to bed with a bedtime story of Derek death index and Edward the Enumerator,not forgetting Reggie the Registrar ,making a guest appearance. Stare lovingly at your 'I cracked the LDS Maze' paperweight whilst waiting for Derek Anorach to contact your rellies in 'Most Hunted'. I think i should see about some real bling tinsel now innit!

Glen.....................I think you have been watching too much television! lol Merry


Unknown Report 20 Jul 2006 14:16

Oh this is too long to read all the replies herein OC Holden In olden times it was well known for marriage contracts to be arranged whilst children were still young in some cases before they were born although these had to be subject to the desired sex of the child. ;-) Going on from that it was also held that an agreed contract constituted an actual marriage so in the case of your ancestor it is most likely that she was contracted to marry JOE BLOGGS their children were also contracted as were the grandchildren, gt grandchildren etc. until we arrive at the present day where these contacts present themselves to you as virtual relatives Well it makes sense to me lol

It would appear I have been a member of the Society for a few years now but didn't realise payment was due. Can I please take Merry's payment option (minus)£10. Could you let the Treasurer know and I will happily let you have a PO Box number to enable you to start making payments to me as soon as possible.......Please don't worry about the last few years where you haven't paid.....I'll put it down to the Treasurer's inexperience :))))) LOL Chris

Just popped in from the garden and enjoying time reading this thread whilst having a break from the sunbathing.......Merry am absolutely shocked that you do not have a tinsel top to go with the hussy you...!! ps when you have finished with the man with a fan could you send him over to me please?!! Fuzzy x

Merry Monty

Merry Monty Report 20 Jul 2006 14:39

I will pass the man on tomorrow, Fuzzy....! Apologies for shocking you, but I would only need two sequins for my sparkly top!!!! Heather Positive Thinker the treasurer??? If she is, then you are unlikely to find the minus £10 thingy will work, as she is better at bringing money in than giving it away! Merry (who hasn't seen her £10 yet..............................................)

Merry, Thanks so much for sharing your man, I will have some interesting things for him to do tommorrow.......of course I mean for him to do all the housework and then the research whilst I sit in the garden.....occasionally shouting for the odd peeled grape or two!! .Will send you two sequins by courier for you preserve your modesty!!

Just picked up this thread, will join. I was originally sending messages like did your 'John Bloggs marry Jane Whoseit' to people 'cos I didn't realise that when you clicked on the 'contact' beside 'John Bloggs 1867 Neverland' all the contact got as a heading to their email was John Bloggs. So sorry anyone that got one. I don't fill all the details on my GR tree 'cos it's not my main software and I just haven't go time, but if anyone contacts me and we think there's a link I'll get my data to them somehow. It also means I don't give much away when I share GR tree. Can't see why anyone would keep bits of the wrong family in tree, there's enough problems when you've only got what you're pretty sure is right. I thought I had a good link with a detailed researcher, but turned out 2 people same name, born same year, same area, and it took a third person to point that out, it hurt, but at least it's a correct tree, even if 'hard pruned' on that branch at present.
