    Hi Everyone!

    Here's a weekly update on how well people have been doing over at LostCousins.
    • 101 new members joined the LostCousins site
    • 12,058 new entries have been added and
    • 2,628 relatives have been matched.
    Happy Easter Everyone!

    All Numbers up on last week! Quite amazing, I think Peter's incentive of a Free weekend has got people adding their relations so that they can make contact.
    And it's been really effective. Over 12k entries! And 2,628 matches! There must be some very pleased and excited members out there!

    The ratio of New Entries to Relatives Matched was 4.58, so on average every 5th person added made a match.

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

    Good Luck Everyone!

    Well, yes. At our U3A family history research group several members expressed interest in Lost Cousins. So maybe there will be some new members from Oz...

    Hi Everyone!

    Here's a weekly update on how well people have been doing over at LostCousins.
    • 52 new members joined the LostCousins site
    • 5,105 new entries have been added and
    • 276 relatives have been matched.
    A steady set of numbers, always good to see New Members joining. Not that many matches this week, which means they don't match with existing members but when the new members start adding theirs then there should be loads of matches.

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

    Good Luck Everyone!

    Hi Everyone!

    Here's a weekly update on how well people have been doing over at LostCousins.
    • 32 new members joined the LostCousins site
    • 5,557 new entries have been added and
    • 437 relatives have been matched.
    New Entries and Relatives Matched both up this week, and I also made 3 new Matches myself!

    I've been using FTAnalyzer to list all the errors that have crept into my tree, and used the Children Status field and the GRO lookup to find all the children who where born and died between censuses.

    My Match Potenial went up .04 this week, how about everyone else?

    Good Luck Everyone!

    Thank you Heather. I've been finding some new relatives of siblings of my direct line, and when I find them I add them to Lost Cousins.

    True Lost Cousins you might say.

    A steady set of numbers, always good to see New Members joining. Not that many matches this week, which means they don't match with existing members but when the new members start adding theirs then there should be loads of matches. I think the UK Bank Holiday coupled with some very nice weather has affected the results.

    "The sun has got its hat on.." And this could be having an effect on the numbers! And there's a wedding tomorrow which may also effect next weeks numbers :)

    Well a pretty quiet week but the numbers are all positive which is always pleasing. Another Bank Holiday weekend coming up and today's weather is grey and trying to rain. But it's not stopping the Red Kite circling overhead as I look out my window.

    Just to mention that in the run-up to GDPR many more inactive members than usual have been closing their accounts, and the new member figure that Red Dragon shows is NET of closures.

    GDPR ? Sorry Peter, can't think what this stands for........
     
  18. Bryman

    Bryman LostCousins Superstar

    Heather, GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation - a revised EU privacy law which came into force on 25 May 2018.
    I suggest that you use Google to find out more but probably of little direct relevance to you in Australia, unless Peter knows better.

    That's right Bryman and what a lot of emails it has generated with all sorts of companies and societies getting in touch to tell me about their updated privacy and cookies policy. Some asking me to re-subscribe, some asking me if I want to unsubscribe, some telling me I don't have to do anything.
    It seemed like a good idea for companies etc. to be more open about the data they keep, but I think we are all fed up with the resulting emails.
