JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen RE: Why is saying thank you often overlooked? #general

When someone asks for help on Jewishgen, and I take the time to
reply, surely it isn't asking too much to get a brief thank you.

I could not agree with you more. I can't imagine not wanting to
thank a person who has helped me.

I agree with both of you too!

I always make it a point to send a thank you email to those who have
offered me help even if it never pans out to anything and when it does,
I am even more appreciative. Saying thank you doesn't cost the recipient
much; it costs the person who helped you their time and effort to help
you, so why not send an email or e-card just to say thank you whether
what they had to say helped you or not!

While on the topic of saying thank you, I want to thank each and every
one of you because although I may not thank you all individually, for
all of the tips and websites for research I now use, as well as finding
people that are researching last names that are also on my family tree
and we are all trying to piece together possible family connections!

Something has been niggling away and I need to put it into words.

When someone asks for help on Jewishgen, (especially if it relates to
Australia as this is where I live but it could be anywhere), and I take
the time to reply, surely it isn't asking too much to get a brief thank you.
