The connectiion with genealogy is that there are many Australians on this
List and they deserve to be congratulated on what is happening in their

I, and many others on this List, have received no end of help with our
research from many Australians and it would be churlish to deny them
recognition for them staging this great event in such a splendid manner.
I consider your comments to be mean-spirited and unnecessary.
