    I very much doubt it - anyone who has entered sufficient relatives to qualify for this forum will surely have made some form of provision, and to recreate the entries for anyone who doesn't qualify for the forum would be unlikely to take more than an hour.

    Hi Everyone!

    Here's a weekly update on how well people have been doing over at LostCousins.
    • 67 new members joined the LostCousins site
    • 3,044 new entries have been added and
    • 149 relatives have been matched.
    All numbers down on last week, but not by much! New Members and New Entries are above the running 20 week average. Great work everyone.
    Relatives Matched has been pretty static for the last 2 weeks, which considering the number of New Entries is unusual. I think it means that the ancestors being added have never been added before and as these members add their cousins and other census years we should start to see matches and find some Lost Cousins.

    New Members mean New Entries, and New Entries mean New Matches.

    Good Luck Everyone!

    Hi Everyone!

    Here's a weekly update on how well people have been doing over at LostCousins.
    • 68 new members joined the LostCousins site
    • 4,001 new entries have been added and
    • 582 relatives have been matched.
    All numbers up on last week. A big jump in relatives matched, thanks to all the effort members have made in the previous weeks.

    Ratio of New Entries to New Matches is 6.87, on average every 7th person entered made a match for 2 members.

    In the latest Newsletter Peter mentioned that Lost Cousins is FREE this weekend. This is an ideal time to enter your relatives on the My Ancestors page and make those matches.

    If you use Family Tree Analyzer to help you identify your relatives to enter, then be aware that it is now on a different hosting platform. If you use FTA currently then please make sure you download from the new site so that you get the latest version. The site is here. Please uninstall the old version first.

    The current latest version of FTA is Version 6.2.1

    If you have anything prior to Version 6.x.x then as Red says, uninstall it and follow the link for the latest version.

    Hi Everyone!

    Here's a weekly update on how well people have been doing over at LostCousins.
    • 141 new members joined the LostCousins site
    • 9,545 new entries have been added and
    • 1,816 relatives have been matched.
    All numbers up on last week and all numbers above the running 20 week average. Great work everyone.

    The match ratio of members added to matches made was a very impressive 5.25, on average every 5th person made a match.

    Peter's Free weekend certainly has worked. I wonder how many of the new entries and matches were from the New Members?

    New Members mean New Entries, and New Entries mean New Matches.

    WARNING!

    There will be a big DROP in members over the next week because I am closing accounts opened by people who have not subscribed to my newsletters, not entered any relatives, and whose email address no longer works. Over the next few months I will be closing other derelict accounts with no entries.

    Update: the weekly member numbers will be adjusted to take the account closures into account - in most cases they are members who haven't logged-in for over a decade.
