    3. So far I haven't heard from the admin of this list regarding the demise of rootsweb lists What I would propose is a merging of lists for London, Middlesex & Surrey There have been few posts on all three and perhaps a merged list might attract more posts What are your thoughts?

    2. Hi all I've 'bitten the bullet', I have created an io group with the name 'ENG-GREATER-LONDON', go to https://groups.io/groups and search for 'ENG-GREATER-LONDON'. If you like perhaps you could post to other rootsweb lists that are connected with your research and are also connected with Greater London. I have put a file up which lists all the areas of Greater London including those absorbed in 1965. A lot of these are in the other counties such as Hertfordshire, Essex etc. ...and I thought I would have a quiet Sunday evening.

    3. Hi Nivard, I have to say that I very rarely participate in the groups I subscribe to at the moment, although I always find them all useful and informative. I'd be more than happy for a merged group as I have family from West Surrey and others who ended up in London.

    3. Nivard, I for one would be happy with your proposals as many families would have moved around between 2 or 3 of the areas - I know I have ancestors who moved between Surrey & Middlesex & visa versa. Also as you said the lists have been very quiet & meging would encouraged more posting & responses. I look forward to a new home for these lists.

    1. [SRY] Re: ALTERNATIVE LIST
    2. Hi Just a few things to contemplate: London is surrounded by 6 counties, in clockwise direction, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Essex, Kent and Surrey. There was once the Greater London Council (GLC) which governed 'Greater London' and included those parts of the six neighbouring counties that 'appeared' to be in London. This was done for political reasons as the 'experts' at the time deemed that the middle of London was 'socialist' and the 'suburbs' i.e. the county portions, were 'conservative' and there needed to be a balance, the most blatant example of gerrymandering in modern history. So, do we merge London with 6 other counties just because Kent and Surrey have the largest chunks in London or do we ignore the other 4. It’s a given that Middlesex is London. So what do we do about the bits that aren’t London in Surrey and Kent, there is an awful lot in these counties that would be left out. Who is going to decide where the 'London' border will be in Surrey and Kent given that we are talking about the status in the 18th, 19th and 20th century and not present day boundaries? Will the individual county lists state the parts that could historically be in London may NOT be included in that list or will they be duplicated. Liaison between the list moderators should determine where the boundaries are to avoid confusion. I think that the list should be named 'Greater London'. Whoever sets up this new list will have to specifically state that the boundaries are based on the past and list the portions of the counties that will be in Greater London. My specific interests are Camberwell (Surrey), Deptford (Kent), and Greenwich (Kent). I notice that the io system allows for sub-groups and linking of groups to other groups, maybe this would be the answer. I haven’t researched it enough yet, perhaps this is a way of putting all the bits of London into one list but being able to access it from other groups? Just a few thoughts from somebody who has designed databases and been in IT for over 45 years. Anybody remember punched cards! David -----Original Message----- From: Mick via ENG-SURREY <[email protected]> Sent: 12 January 2020 12:53 To: [email protected] Cc: Mick <[email protected]> Subject: [SRY] Re: ALTERNATIVE LIST I would agree & it would keep the Surrey list going.You certainly are putting a lot of work into keeping the lists going on.ThanksMick So far I haven't heard from the admin of this list regarding the demise of rootsweb lists What I would propose is a merging of lists for London, Middlesex & Surrey There have been few posts on all three and perhaps a merged list might attract more posts What are your thoughts?

    3. Hi David Historically boundaries have shifted and administrative areas come and gone I would like to have seen a list covering say the home counties But that bird has flown, there already lists for Kent and I know Bucks are being talked about And then there are other platforms like Googlegroups where I find it a devils own game to even find a list so won't even go there So for now what I propose is a list covering Surrey, Middlesex and London Nivard Ovington in Cornwall (UK) On 12/01/2020 13:08, David Banks via ENG-SURREY wrote: > Hi > Just a few things to contemplate: London is surrounded by 6 counties, in clockwise direction, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Essex, Kent and Surrey.

This was done for political reasons as the 'experts' at the time deemed that the middle of London was 'socialist' and the 'suburbs' i.e. the county portions, were 'conservative' and there needed to be a balance, the most blatant example of gerrymandering in modern history. > So, do we merge London with 6 other counties just because Kent and Surrey have the largest chunks in London or do we ignore the other 4. It’s a given that Middlesex is London. So what do we do about the bits that aren’t London in Surrey and Kent, there is an awful lot in these

    3. For what my little and far-away voice/vote is worth....I am in support of your suggestion for London, MDX, Surrey etc., Nivard.I have lots in that area c1550 - 1700 to still research...albeit my book of 408 pgs 32 pgs index & 10 pg of appendices was finally printed/published on December 14th!  Genealogy and its research is never done...but publish and share what you have discovered or no one else will have the opportunity to confirm or dispute!
