Many thanks for the reply. I merely asked because I happened to
notice in a message posted by Magdalena the other day that one of the
suggested possible themes, or tutorials, would be on Writing Up Your
Family History. This is a subject on which I lecture very regularly
to family history societies around the country and I would be happy
to either lead a course on it or deliver a talk, if asked.
I hope to be at Yorksgen 2006 after an absence of a year or three due
to other commitments.
