Have online family history sites impacted archives?

Posted on 11th May 2017 by Paul Carter

David Thomas from Northumbria University is conducting some research into the impact which the major commercial online family history sites have had on archives.  As part of his research, he would like to get information about the effect these sites have had on family historians.  He would be grateful if you could complete the attached simple survey  He will also be talking to as many family historians as he can.  The survey is completely anonymous.  David does not know the names of those who have filled in the form, so please feel free to say what you think.

The link to the survey is here:
