Free Lunch in Cyberspace ..... Who Pays? - Useful reminder for those researching about the dangers of using information exchanged across "the net" to replace personal methodical research. Also warns about our tendency to download without thinking about the costs of providing the information in the first place.

Dalby Delver, No. 21 November 1999, Page 8:
Happy Snaps - Despite the catch heading this is a deadly serious warning about the dangers which exist to our treasured photographs. Coloured paper, the storage boxes in which we keep them and how to use dental floss to save photographs are some items covered.

Family Tree Magazine, Vol.15 No. 11, September 1999, Page 31:
Computers, Legal Research and Genealogy- An excellent description about how to access the legal world.

Names of Vocations -  This batch of newsletters carried a number of such lists. This one is easy to read and covers many of those mysterious occupations which appear against our ancestors . For example a pig man does not rear pigs, he deals in crockery. Well worth checking.
