As part of my Masters degree in Electronic Business Management at Warwick University I am undertaking a study of the use of the internet for genealogical purposes. The purpose of this study is to identify the way in which genealogical internet sites make money and to understand the customer base.
To facilitate this study you are invited to participate in an email survey questionnaire which is designed to investigate the user requirements for internet genealogy such as searching for ancestor history data, finding people, creating your family website and designing a family tree. In this survey, there are 20 questions and it will take approximately 10 minutes to complete.
Your participation in this survey is voluntary but would be appreciated. If you take part and provide a contact email address a copy of the analysis of the survey will be sent to you upon completion. If at any time you feel uncomfortable answering any of the questions then please just ignore it and carry on with the next question.
The information and opinion you provide will extremely helpful for me to better conduct the study and better understands the user requirements of genealogical websites.
Your responses will be strictly confidential and data from this research will only be used in the final report of the project dissertation. If you have any questions about the survey, you may contact Juan Du using the above contact detail or my project supervisor Jeffrey Jones at J.A.Jones(a)warwick.ac.uk.
Please contact me at my email address and I will provide you with a copy of the survey via email. The survey is a word form and has been checked for all known viruses
Thank you very much for your time and support.

I would have said that these promotions were in the '60s 7 &even very early
'70s, but that may be just "it couldn't have been "that long ago" on my
part. Anyway, I seem to recall hearing something about the fact that some
court declared it illegal. I don't know if I ever heard the facts of that
case or why that declaration was made -- if it was.

Thanks a bunch Jerry. I had figured it that way too, but didn't trust my
instincts so it's nice to see you got the same numbers that I did. I have
never seen a lot that small before.

Subject: Re: [DMU] Feet instead of acres
I presume 336 square feet. 1 acre is 43,560 square feet. so 336/43560 is
about .007 or, rounding off, 336 sq ft is about .01 acres.
