My copy arrived last Friday,in UK, ordered by fax from the LDS in Birmingham
in mid April, cost £29.75 for all of UK .
I am still playing with it like a toy of course, good fun !
I've even read the instructions .
Looks a well put together package.
Has a National Index for "country wide name spotting" with separate cds for
each region eg Wales and Monmouth region.
Shirlene has already volunteered hers for the 4 counties on the South/West
Wales Lookup Exchange, so that makes two of us .
I would like to think that another 5 people will volunteer for this, then I
can stipulate which one to contact depending on the day of the week
............ I'm serious !
So, I'm Sunday,Shirlene's Monday..............................
That way no one person need feel reluctant for thinking that volunteering is
a potential " burden".
And obviously this method is more efficient than a free for all of random
queries and [multiple or none]responses on the lists themselves. Just my
humble opinion of course :-)
I have left the fiche based vols on for now, but since the cd based searches
are so much easier to deal with [with cut/paste] I assume they will wish to
come off fairly soon .
I feel I should also repeat my previous request that identical lookups are
NOT made to more than one volunteer, unless a response is not received from
the first one within 7 days.
