Just to inform you that the static pages, which contain a list of people who are willing to do lookups, have been moved from the wiki section of the forum to the Site Projects section of the Reference Library, accessed via the links on the home page.



Research Offers: Cemeteries (http://www.familytreeforum.com/content.php/732-Research-Offers-Cemetery)
Research Offers: Photographs (http://www.familytreeforum.com/content.php/733)
Research Offers: Records Offices/Archives/Libraries (http://www.familytreeforum.com/content.php/734)


If you would like to volunteer then please leave your details in the comments box at the bottom of the relevant page (accessed via the links on the three headings above) and we will add them to the county listing. Alternatively you can create a thread in the Research Offers forum.

There has been no change to the Research Requests (http://www.familytreeforum.com/forumdisplay.php/138-Research-Requests) and Research Offers (http://www.familytreeforum.com/forumdisplay.php/139-Research-Offers) forum.

I hope the offers and requests will be seen there. Can we put a prominent link somewhere, Elaine? I do wonder how many people would think to look on the county page .... although it is certainly the logical place to put them!

Up until an hour ago all three pages (ROs / Photos / Cemeteries ) were tucked away in the wiki, where probably fewer people saw them!

There have always been links at the bottom of the county pages, directing members to the lookup offers - and I have just remembered that they need redoing so am about to start working my way through them. They will all be changed to match the text currently at the bottom of the Bedfordshire (http://www.familytreeforum.com/content.php/76-Bedfordshire) page.

There are also links on the sticky Guideline threads in the Research Requests forum and Research Offers forum. as there always has been.

It's only the permanent offers which are there Anne.
The one-off offers, or offers from those members who prefer a thread on the forum, remain in the Research Offers forum - and the Research Requests forum is still available for members to post lookup/photo requests.

Ah! I misunderstood - I thought the Offers and Requests boards were going to be removed! Sorry.

My apologies if I didn't make it clear. I'll reword the first post to make it clear that it just refers to the static pages which have been moved from the wiki section of the forum to the Reference Library section, accessed via the home page.

Edit: Done - hope that makes it clearer!
