Re: [Torrens List] Re: Torrens Genealogy Facebook Page.

I'm sorry guys, I don't do Facebook a lot either and didn't know about your Facebook page.  I've now joined it. 

My line doesn't seem to be that popular.  My eldest Torrence is William Torrance b. bef. 1679 Scotland.  He as a farmer in Carrington & Borthwick, Midlothian, Scotland and married Anna Ronaldson in Braidwood, Lanarkshire on Dec. 2, 1699. Then he marred Helen Gray on Mar. 3, 1727.  William was son of James Torrance and Isobel Dalgleish.

My area doesn't see to match anyone elses. Midlothian.?

Anyways don't give up...others might be like me..a little slow on those public sites.

  Hullo Derek - and everyone else.

  There are 76 names on the list - but it has been (too) quiet!

  Occasionally a new person joins - and says nothing! Despite the "Welcome
  to the list" message they get - is this too unwelcoming?

  The list has been going for many years - existing listers seem to have
  exhausted their connections via the list. So we need new members and/or
  new subjects for discussion! 

  Is there anything I should change in this list's performannce to make it
  work better? 

  Or is this list a things of the past that I should close? The world's gone
  away from them in favour of forums!

  My own very personal view is that mailing lists are far better than forums
  and I don't do Facebook or other social media! Which probably makes me
  redundant too!
