G'Day Paul et. al.
May I respectfully suggest you see my Post of 18 Dec 99 'Seasons Genealogy Greetings" - that title is used because THIS FORUM REFUSED TO ACCEPT MY Title "Seasons Greetings to All". Now I believe that is 4 words ie. MORE than 3 words as you state is required. The Message I was given in BOLD TYPE was "You must use genealogy subject headings" so I inserted the word Genealogy and deleted the last 2 words and Vallah - My New "Genealogy" Title was accepted. Very Bloody strange - odd even. I've used numerous headings before and NEVER once received such a rebuff to my choice of headings. Please explain why the sudden change??????
