Were none of us curious enough to email the team to ask for more information?
I am far too shy to appear on television, but others are not.
Surely it would be an interesting experience and worthy of a tick in '1000 things to do before you die?'

They have to be joking.

Snap!

No because
a) other members are better researchers
b) Don't use GR held records.

If anyone has volunteered, 'break a leg' as they say in showbiz to wish you success ;-)

Was it by invitation ?

I thought you had to offer your services

Porkie_Pie

Porkie_Pie Report 9 Feb 2013 23:33

I did receive the invitation from GR but never took them up on it, Mainly because i see it as promoting the site and although i used to recommend GR in the past i would not recommend it for "Genealogy purposes" at the moment, they have a tree with more bugs/errors than a ever and their are still issues with it that where their when they introduced the last new tree so one step forward and two steps back IMHO
