Had an e mail from Genes yesterday quoting the "Share your knowledge" thread.
Doesn´t look like they´ve had much response.

Me too. but I,m not interested in showing myself on camera . bad enough catching glimpses of myself in shop windows and thinking Blimey girl you are fat & looking old and more like Mum every day.

Was saying the same to daughter on Saturday and she said I keep seeing myself and thinking I look like Mum !!

Same as Shirley - there are far better researchers on this site than I.

If anyone has volunteered, well done for having the confidence.

Andrew Report 12 Jan 2013 11:25

And me.

Hadn't read it and didn't realise you were on film. Must get down to it and apply straight away :-D :-D Not done any show business since Buttons aged 18. :-D


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 12 Jan 2013 11:29

They'd probably want you to have used the GR held records for your research, not talk about other subscription sites or sources :-0


JustJohn Report 12 Jan 2013 12:29

I have not used GR records, DET. But can act to a script and am extremely photogenic. And have never visited Cannes. I could have a late career like Albert Tatlock :-D ;-)

Had one a couple of weeks back but ages since I did any research and never used the records on here so didn't bother.

Got this email from them about 2 weeks ago, just ignored it.

I help out via these community boards, do not need to be filmed for a bit on this website or fb.

I got the email a couple of days ago. If they looked at their records they'd know that I live in Canada. Are they planning to fly over here to interview me?

I live in Spain Margee & haven´t been to England for 5 years.
Think they´d pay my fare & accommodation if I volunteered?
Mind you, I too only have basic membership, so I´m probably not what they are looking for......quite apart from frightening the horses. :-D
