    Personally I enjoy a feeling of well being, knowing that the weather is fine and I can hear the birds singing, as I sit at my laptop.

    Apparently several of this week's new members joined after reading an article in The Sun on June 23rd. Anyone seen the article - I can't find it on the newspaper's website?

    • 28 new members joined the LostCousins site
    • 1,428 new entries have been added and
    • 48 relatives have been matched.
    A steady set of numbers, always good to see New Members joining. A quiet week, maybe the free weekend will inspire people to do some research, but the sun is out and the World Cup is on..

    Hi Everyone!

    Here's a weekly update on how well people have been doing over at LostCousins.
    • 49 new members joined the LostCousins site
    • 1,628 new entries have been added and
    • -309 relatives have been matched.
    Always good to see New Members joining. New Members and New Entries both up on last week. But unfortunately it looks like we had a member leave us and close their account which has dragged down the relatives matched.

    They didn't leave by choice (who in their right mind would?) it was the grim reaper.

    Unfortunately, that will happen to each of us at some time.

    Perhaps this should be a reminder for each of us to pass on guardianship of our research to someone who will not delete all of the painstakingly added census references. Hopefully they would be able to look after the entries even if they would not add to them. After all, it would not cost them anything, even effort, until a future match is made with new entries added by another member.

    Of course, all that would be for naught unless Peter has made appropriate arrangements for the LC site to continue without him at the helm. Best wishes for a long and healthy life, to be followed by a willing heir.

    Websites that close down when somebody passes away (such as Suffolk Surnames) usually do so because everything is in the name of an individual. There has historically been a lot of uncertainty over what happens to 'digital assets' when someone dies.

    The LostCousins site is owned by a company, albeit a very small one, so even if I'm not around it can continue.

    Hi Everyone!

    Here's a weekly update on how well people have been doing over at LostCousins.
    • 56 new members joined the LostCousins site
    • 5,174 new entries have been added and
    • 333 relatives have been matched.
    A good set of numbers, always good to see New Members joining. The 333 Matches is actually more like 650+ to overcome the negative figure we had last week which would make it a great week.

    • 24 new members joined the LostCousins site
    • 1,191 new entries have been added and
    • 29 relatives have been matched.
    A very low set of numbers this week, but always good to see New Members joining. All numbers down this week, but it is summer. We've had our first rain since May, which has hopefully helped in the gardens.

    Yes, the rain has been a big help in the garden - actually thinking about mowing the lawn. Always a quiet time of year at LostCousins because so many members are on holiday, or have grandchildren visiting.

    We have just had our first rain today, not much - just a little, but it all helps the garden.
    Our runner beans have not grown well this year.

    Wish that I could say the same for here. New South Wales has been declared 100% drought. Farmers are in a dreadful situation and there are massive support campaigns in place. (sorry, off-topic, I know).
