    <|:) Top Dog <|:)

    Top Dog went live for the first time today the 27th May 2013 and has grown into a fantastic genealogy site.

    We have over 1,790 members who have clocked up over 120,200 messages. (that's over 88 messages a day)

    A huge THANK YOU to admin for setting up the best and most friendliest site there is.

    And a HUGE THANK YOU to all the lovely members for being there and helping to demolish the uncountable brick-walls. You are what makes this site so special.

    The celebratory drinks are on Daft Bat :angel:

    It is rather wonderful, isn't it? :D

    Who knew that, when @Doug and I set this up with the help of a number of stalwarts, that it would still be growing 4 years later?

    Thank you to you all for making this the best family history (and off piste ;) ) forum that it is today. 8(:-)

    Having connection issues today, so cannot "like" reliably, but determined to add a big "me, too" to all the birthday wishes... and many more for the "bestest" forum on the whole internet! {-(^^)-}

    It has occurred to me a few times that not only is this forum the consequence of much care and personal commitment by Doug and Jan in particular but that there is also a real financial cost involved in providing and maintaining a web site. It is all fun and helpfulness for most of us but I for one very much appreciate their willingness to pay for it and offer it to us for nothing.

    I may be an infrequent contributor but I am a fan and I wish all at Top Dog many happy returns. Thanks guys. It is very much appreciated.

    Tony
