These articles are fascinating. Unfortunately I had difficulty understanding some of the articles due to the terminology used and the specialised research. It would be great if these could be produced in layman’s language that the average genealogist could understand.


They aren’t genealogical articles. They’re social science articles about genealogy. They were written for academics, not for genealogists.
