Nancy, I am surprised at your comment that experienced genealogists
Facebook were withholding advice because they felt it was beneath them
to reply. They are probably failing to help people who need it the
most. What a pity.
I didn't mean to imply that anyone felt it beneath them to reply -- I
just noted that they didn't. And I am not a mind reader. Perhaps
they, like me, are getting tired of responding to novices who post
nebulous questions with insufficient information.
I belong to a number of lists and groups. On one occasion I responded
suggesting we might be able to help if we had more information and
advice as to where the person had already searched. Imagine my
surprise when, rather than responding with the requested information,
I found this person had posted the original enquiry to another group
the very next day?
Perhaps I am not the only one that has happened to.
