Entry: surname muppets
Description: My fading eyes light up when I have a pertinent family history enquiry hit my inbox. I am less pleased when someone is merely collecting surname data. This role is surely redundant when big name sites have all the data at their finger tips. Anyone carefully curating surname data uniting a number of seemingly disparate records is however to be saluted. Witness the late Malcolm Boyes who united me in nanoseconds with my cousin who'd contacted him about the same line as me.
