Using the Tell Me Facility

Hi there

I am the Web Master and I understand your want to tell me something related to  this web site.

My job is to ensure that this site runs smoothly and to handle administrative matters - and if you want to ask a question about Hertfordshire, the people who lived here in the past, or other aspects of Local History you question should be addressed to the Resident Genealogist using Ask Chris.

I know that many of you will have entered this web site using a search engine, such as google, or by a direct link from another web site, and as a result you may not have seen the Home Page or the Newsletter Blog. If this is the case you may find it useful to visit these pages before posting your message.

Details of the types of questions I get are given in the box, and your message will normally be processed within a week (except when I am on holiday).
