Subject: Bumper YKS Surnames List Update - February 16 2006
Date: Thu, 16 Feb 2006 19:55:24 +0100
My goodness, this has been a busy week for the YKS surnames list! I guess that the BBC "Who do you think you are?" programme is getting everyone interested in family history. This has certainly been a bumper week of changes, deletions and most especially new surname submissions, which is why I am posting this update earlier than I normally would.
There were more than 25 changes to existing email addresses, so please don't rush to conclusions if someone in your personal contact list has a bouncing address. Check first with that person's entry in the YKS database - it may have changed.
There were 8 confirmed bouncing emails and the following entries have been deleted from the database. Offenders will have to resubmit their surnames. I am sorry if anyone has been inconvenienced meanwhile.
Tracy H (3)
Ann Appleton (1)
John Wade (11)
Melvyn Cockshaw (2)
Steve Askam (1)
Dave Borrill (6)
Chris Moorwood (1)
JR Siddall (1)
Most important to the database, there were 55 new submissions. Some of the surnames listed below were submitted by several people, which explains the number that is given in brackets next to some names. The more people researching a surname, the greater the likelihood of a positive hit!
ALLINSON, ANDERSON, APPLEBY
BALDWIN, BRAYSHAW, BRIGHT
CARRACK, CHAPMAN, CLARK, CLARKSON, CLINT
FARRAR, FEARNLEY, FEARNSIDE
HALL(2), HANSELL, HARRISON, HART, HASELDEN
HEATON, HOLTHOUSE, HOULDERSHAW
MAGNER, MAYFIELD, MCLEOD, MERCHANT, MOREWOOD
SANDBROOK, SANDERSON, SAUNDERS, SIMMONITE, SIMPSON
STANILAND, STORRY, SUTHERBY, SWIFT
A warm welcome to newbies to the YKS Surnames List and a special word of thanks to everyone who helps me with the list housekeeping by informing me of bouncing emails. Happy hunting everyone!
