Hello John

why is the UK and Ireland 'lumped' together. It appears that the numerical advantage of the UK was always going to drown out any Irish specialists.

If you think how big John Grenham is -- as a genealogist, an author, a lecturer and a blogger -- and he didn't get a mention in the top 10.

Perhaps next year?
