Good morning fellow researchers,
We have now officially kicked the beginning stages for
www.langford-lankford.com . Myself and 3 other WONDERFUL volunteers have
just barely gotten our feet wet getting this project started. I have
received hundreds of e-mails expressing interest in this project ranging
from: How can I help? When can I enter my ancestors?, etc. At this time,
only the 4 of us will be doing data entry and setting up hundreds of the
fabulous features that will be usable by ALL L-ford Surname researchers for
FREE. Our Beta team would only ask that you give us several months to get
the initial components set up, systems in place, etc. before we allow more
great researchers to begin contributing. It is important for us to get it
started right from the beginning as well all take our L-ford research pretty
Providing actual sources is our #1 goal in this endeavor. We feel it is
important to not just cut and paste in abstracts of a transcription from a
website somewhere. We are looking to include copies of ANY actual source
document we can get our hands on. Good research is built on good sources
and we are trying to keep that foremost in the project.
You are welcome to stop by YOUR site anytime www.langford-lankford.com .
Click on the log-in button and enter the word: guest in both fields. Your
comments will be welcome, but please try and hold them for several months
until we get the baseline established. I would most humbly request that you
would keep any questions relating to the new Website Project OFF of the
Langford and Lankford lists. I and you enjoy reading the list for
collaborating our L-fords, not for being a technical support forum.
Besides, both ladies will beat me on the head with a rolling and/or bowling
pin LOL. I wish you all the best and hope our newest tool in the great
search of our ancestors will be helpful for all.
The old website found at
remain in place and unchanged until such time as ALL of that data is
Most sincerely yours,
