Guidelines for Making Contact

The idea is to exchange information. Do not expect other people to pass on the results of several years research immediately. Tell them what you already know, and what you are trying to find out. Many contacts will be dead ends, but others will be very fruitful. Many experienced members are very pleased to share their work. Be sure to thank them and acknowledge sources if you subsequently use the information in your records.

Do not expect people to reply immediately. They may be away from home, or busy with other things. It may take them some time to assemble the information they want to send you. Also please note that some addresses on the pages will be out-of-date. We rely upon members to notify BAFHS of amendments.
