I agree with Barbara - without some of the people on this thread I would have never got over my depression a few years ago - when I was stuck in the house for several weeks and had to be quite still for a long while & not able to watch TV as not able to look up to see the screen.

I just wish those people were all still around on GR


SylviaInCanada Report 1 Dec 2017 19:27

A lot of people got fed up with the problems on GR, and the fact that they are often not fixed by the company, by the fact that GR now seems to be the very poor orphan in the "stable", so that it often feels as if we're hanging in there by our fingernails as the company sometimes seems determined to drive this site into the ground.

Others found their lives were getting more and more complicated, and they either could not afford the time or the money to continue subscribing.

I know a lot of them do still look on the site, read posts .............. because some of us get messages from them asking for information to be posted on a particular thread.

There's also no doubt that the site has lost a lot of the members who used to spend most of their time helping others research their families, and spend just a short time on the Chat Board. That was because there is actually so little help being requested that it sometimes seems as if the ones remaining are competing to be first with the information, just to have something to do!

I came over to GC from FR free, but in order to post it cost £5 in subs,same as FR charges.the boards were un-threaded then,and you couldnt C&P any links or post an email address......I didnt re-new again till 05.

loads have not re-newed over the past few years and sadly many have passed away.

I think "Mable/Mildred posts now and again.

David Report 4 Dec 2017 08:31

I re-joined in 2014 I recall. Before that my prior membership

had lapsed. Possibly consequence of serious injury 2013

I was very ill as well as damaged


Carolyn Report 4 Dec 2017 14:35

Hi All, nice to see some old names I actually recognise! I joined in January 2003, have been a member ever since but haven't had a 'connection' in years, so mostly use Ancestry for my tree now. Still pop in occasionally. Happy Christmas one and all.
