should have been represented with a stand at WDYTYA, now on in Birmingham

The fact that you are not implies that GR is being wound down ...........

If so, members deserve to be told

Probably gearing up for the things we have thought they would do some years ago

merging with

Find My Past

and judging by the problems regularly talked about on FaceBook, will be a step in the wrong direction.

So glad I no longer have FMP, only basic on here. . :-D

It is now apparent that GR did NOT have a stand at WDYTYA, and the suggestion has been made that the reason could be that they did not have enough staff to man both FMP stand and their 1939 registrations cafe as well as a GR stand

Personally, I think it a disgrace that one of the top 4 Family History sites in England (if not the UK), according to the Competitions Board in 2009/10 did not have a stand at the biggest Family History Exhibition of the year.

It is also another piece of evidence to add to the file that GR is being run down and ignored ............... despite promises made in 2009/10
