“The idea is simple. You ask your question, and others try and answer it for you. In a similar way, you may see somebody else’s discussion and add to it in your own way. As RootsChat is a very busy site, you may receive your first response to your question in a few minutes. You will probably get several responses as more people try and help you.”
“It is a safe environment. Email addresses remain hidden, and you can contact others by private message. RootsChat is split into categories to give your questions the best chance of being answered.”
