Good to see that this has been 'stickied'

But no sign of GR removing the the root cause of the current problem - which is their responsibility entirely

They really don't understand the boards - very odd.

a good thread that hopefully WILL be seen!

Yes you are correct

I just feel that members will not get answers from the original poster that they are hoping for when the member is obviously gone from this site

If the old threads are being accessed through the discussions on the home page some of these new users will not even see the Find Ancestors page....Just like the old Surnames board :-(

Very old threads, dated 2003 or 2004 etc, are unlikely to be checked by the original poster after all those years.

So might be a better idea to send the poster a message. If they still have the same email address then they will receive notification.

If the date the member joined is showing as January 2001 or have NIL posts then their account is not being used. GR I believe was started late in 2002.

No point in posting for help on any old lookup thread as the original poster is probably still not offering that help. So better to start your own thread where more members will see it.

This has been mentioned so many times before but I think it is time for a reminder

Happy rellie hunting

UPDATED 7th May 2012

Quite a few of the members will know another way of spotting a possible old thread.

Over the years members will change their board names but because GR will no longer accept spaces between words then some names stand out as they are still showing their proper name with christian and surname showing as two words
