Jocelyn, you have changed the existing subject line,
which means that (because email programs look at headers not
subject lines) it will be included in the same conversation thread
as the email to which you have replied. Always best to use a new
email for a new subject.

I suggested that Chapman codes can be useful, but not in subject
headings in this list. I have no idea what ROC means and you have
not even interpreted it in the body of the email. Sure, I could
go and look it up, but why would not use a term that everybody,
including new users who are feeling their way and looking for
help, will understand?

But Lindsay, you don't have a different view to me at all as I
hope my new subject line will show. I agree entirely and what
you say is exactly what I am suggesting and now putting into
practice, and if your Mores aren't from ROC, you won't waste
time even looking at this and that is the point, unless you're
following my thread.
The Chapman Codes were designed for a good reason and surely
all researchers are interested in improving their research
My great grandmother was Catherine MORE b 29 Jul 1833 at
Arkendeith near Avoch ROC (in the Black Isle which is neither an
island nor black) to father Alexander MORE (1774-1860) and his
second wife Catharine MUSTARD (1787-1867). His first wife was
Isabel MORE (maiden name) and they had seven children all born
in the Black Isle in ROC between 1799 and 1812.
Looking for descendants from either wife.
And if my suggestion works, Lindsay, you won't even read this

Although a fellow Australian, I'm afraid
I have a different view, Jocelyn.
First, it is really important that subject headings are
relevant to the content of the message. That's why I changed
the heading above -- and also made it a new topic so that it
is not included in the same conversation as all those about
MORE. How much easier it will be for each of us when looking
over pst emails and, particularly, the archives of this list,
if subject headings relate to the content.
Second, I agree that Chapman codes can be useful, but not
everyone knows about them. This list should be useful for
both new and experienced researchers -- it will be most
helpful for newbies if the words used are easily understood
without having to do a lookup somewhere else.
