Last night we tried three times to buy more bandwidth from Telkom, but it failed every time, so no Web access until Friday. Oh well, at least e-mail still works. The trouble is the banks make you jump through so many hoops to avoid fraud that eventually legitimate transactions fail as well. On the family history front, we’re checking out lots of Ellwood researchers to see which ones are related, and discover the pitfalls of online family trees, where everyone copies from everyone else, without checking to see if the information is accurate — and very often it isn’t! Also had an interesting e-mail from Don Edge, who says he is related on the Cottam side, but I’m not sure where he fits in, so that might lead to discovering a whole lot more relatives we didn’t know about.
