actually one thread per family if they're connected as info on one member will lead to info on another :-)

Sorry Errol - changing your name still doesn't alter the effect of pulling a dangling thread :-D

Passes Errol a darning needle

Refering to Ros' 2nd question

"I assume it means just one subject (family name) and just one subject is put on one post"

If you are going to ask for FH research help on Find Ancestors etc, etc, then yes, one thread per family.

Should you have a second query fairly closely related to that family, then add to the original thread, rather than start a new one. This is because 'helpers' often think laterally and it is useful to be able to read what has already been researched so that they don't spend time re-doing it.

People sometimes refer to the thread of a conversation and that' s just what a thread is - a conversation. Posts are the comments in that conversation.
