Any ideas on making lineage groups palatable for more people? I've tried to address it in the SAR and some change has occurred. I don't know which variables are barriers for which people, but interest would be one that may be easiest to address. I don't want this to get too long & drawn out, but perhaps new outside ideas to bring in would help.
Any ideas on the reasons for migration? Lineage groups by their nature create positive and negative impressions. Also, people join for different reasons. I fit better when I joined and hopefully that will comeback with time.
I find it can be difficult both with researchers and in lineage groups. In Germany, I have some towns- need to get records. 1 line is from an 1890s? immigration. The rest immigrated in the 17th & 18th centuries.
In NC, it's Surrey & Rowan- migrations 1750s & 1790s & possibly another migration time from PA.
