How to write a query
- Hi all.....
We seem to have some new members, and I would like to remind everyone of
how to write a good query that would give you the most assistance
Too often (on any list) I see people who just list the surnames they are
searching (no details, like where and when), or who say "Looking for
Information" (-what- information?)
If your query is vague, you will either get 1. no help, 2. not the help
you were looking for or 3. people asking you for details which you
should have given.
It's much easier if you do it in a clear and consise way in the
beginning. Since this is a "basic", I have put my suggestions on How to
Write a Successful Query on my Hints page, url below. I encourage the
new people (and those of us who have been around) to read that
the more you tell us, the more we can help you.
