My subscription runs out in the next few days and I'm not renewing, for all the well discussed reasons. My tree is a complete shambles after I tried to reload the GEDCOM, and I've moved it to Ancestry. Nobody takes much notice of my posts anyway.

Its been fun doing lookups, but even those don't seem to be as good now.

Yet another of the "older" members going.

GR do not seem bothered about losing valuable members who help others.

Take care.

Im also sorry to see you are leaving Andy, ive always enjoyed reading your well informed posts for people needing help on here.

Regards George

It's a shame you are leaving Andy as you're always so kind and helpful. I remember that when I first joined GR you helped me on my way with my research... I hadn't a clue, but you gave your time to help - so thank you :-). Hope you reconsider :-).



Mayfield Report 13 Jan 2013 17:49

Sorry to see you go, might well be joining you in Feb when my renewal is due, depends how badly GR try to rip me off with renewal charges :-P

Good luck,

Andy, your posts ARE noticed.

I, too, am really sorry to see you go. I know what you mean about the lookups not being what they were but I still enjoy doing them even though there are not as many as there used to be.

Good luck and every best wish for the future.

Liz :-( :-( :-(

i too am considering a similar move - i seem to have come to a dead stop with my family tree and my husbands has been a non starter - everytime i get stuck people suggest looking at sites linked to ancestry.

Sorry to hear you're leaving Andy, but I understand why :-(

I'll be on that path later this year

When all the "older" members leave, the Home Page will have to change....... remove the bit that states members are happy to help!!


JoyDean Report 13 Jan 2013 22:49

Bye, Andy; take care.

My renewal is scheduled for some time in April.

Sorry to see you go. We have often been on the same threads following each other with posts for look ups . You will be missed .

Shirley :-(


Andrew Report 17 Jan 2013 22:17

After reading the kind comments left on this and other threads over the last few days, I've decided to renew my sub and stay. Can't leave doing lookups alone.

So it's not goodbye from me.....
