As I write the Client Report, I find that there are times that I am forced to used secondary sources when primary sources are not available; for example, using a death certificate to provide birth…Continue
Further to last, I could be wrong - it does seem to have recognised me and remembered my account here.
Has anyone else experienced something similar?
Oh well, at least I can get on with my project again. Thanks to anyone who read and was prepared to help. It is much appreciated.
I have an awful feeling I've made a mess of things.
I had thought I signed up about this time last year, when I first started looking into the Level 1 ICAP Gen exam.
Trouble is, I was ill meanwhile and had to stop for a bit, and then this morning, when I went to sign in on the ICAP Gen page, it said my email doesn't exist and directed me to create a profile, which loaded to here.
I definitely have been here before, I'm sure of it.
Could anybody please direct me to the appropriate place to get help?
My name is Jake Fletcher, I have been pursuing genealogy for six years and it has become more than hobby, but rather a career direction. I find that just coming from school, my genealogy education has been mostly solitary. I am producing a lot of work right now that I would like to work towards my portfolio. I have met a lot of people who said my work is great, but I feel like I could really benefit from someone reviewing my work with more scrutiny so I can become better. Does anyone have any suggestions or are they interested in reading some genealogy work I have produced.
Thank you, your time is greatly appreciated,

Michael, There is a "add a discussion" that you can click on to do just that.
I am new to this group. Don't see much by way of a guide how to get around the website and participate and ask questions, etc.
How do I contribute questions to the Discussion Forum? Thanks.
