In Which I Play The Ancestral Etiquette-Ologist

Editor’s Note: Every once in a while one sees something on a bulletin board or mailing list that makes one want to channel one’s inner Lady Bracknell, or at least one’s inner Miss Manners.

Gentle Reader:

Even in the freewheeling world of electronic communications, it is rude to respond: “Doubt I will attend this. … Nothing new to hear” to the announcement of an upcoming genealogy conference.

Opinion duly noted, however.

Sincerely,

The Etiquette-Ologist
