Hi, I've just spent an interesting 20 mins filling in an online survey for a PhD about genealogy online. I checked it out - it appears to be a valid & ethically-approved project (I'm in the academic world, so cautious about such things), and our contributions can be very useful. If you want to have a go, or look, here's the address: http://igcs*survey*curtin*edu*au I found out about it in the Feb edition of Your family Tree (which has only JUST arrived here in NZ!!).
