Ancestry/Rootsweb message boards

If you seeking inspiration, why not check out the Ancestry/Rootsweb message boards? These are one and the same (Rootsweb is a free genealogical site hosted and controlled by the same parent company as Ancestry, which is a paid site for the most part), but can be accessed for free via either site. There are message boards for most surnames as well as locations. As they've been established for such a long time be sure to use the search function to increase your chances of spotting anything relevant.

I've recently made contact with a fellow reseacher for my CRUTCH line there (not a Wing line for once!) as well as volunteering to admin the CRUTCH board - not an onerous task given that until this month there'd been three messages in six years!
