2020.03.13 19:57 zenitsThe official r/indieheads coronavirus megathread: Tour and festival cancellations, and other useful information
After a massive increase in tour and festival cancellations due to the coronavirus, the mod team has decided to aggregate all the information related to the coronavirus into one megathread, including cancellations, bans on gatherings, safety information, and information on supporting musicians and venues. From now on, please post all coronavirus-related information to this thread. All sources are linked at the name of the artist, festival, or location. I’ll try updating the post regularly to include any news / additional information from the comments.

(I nicked most of this list from this post.) A big chunk of artists’ revenues comes from live gigs, as well as the merch sales attached to those tours. Without that revenue stream, artists may struggle financially. Similarly, without shows, many of the venues, especially the smaller ones, may experience serious financial difficulties. Here are things that you can do to support them if you can afford to:
If your ticket has been postponed, please don’t return it, even if the date for the new show hasn’t been announced yet
Buy music instead of (or in addition to) streaming - whether it’s digital downloads or physical releases
Buy merch online - buying band t-shirts is especially good, since you (kind of) advertise the bands by wearing them
Many venues have monthly / yearly membership plans, so subscribe to those if you can
Some artists and venues may hold fundraisers or have Patreons, so follow them on social media to see if you can help them that way
Share their music. This is especially helpful if they have a new album out, since even some of their fans might not have heard it yet!
See if there are any livestream concerts happening. An aggregation of these livestreamed shows can be found here.
Yes I would love to spread awareness of their disgusting and predatory practices. Thanks for asking. JWs have to report field service time every month. One way they do it (especially if elderly or during inclement weather) a group get together. They read the obituaries and look up the survivors’ addresses. Then they send the survivors a form letter and a tract. I was forced to join one of these letter writing parties. I went through the motions of writing the distasteful letters but never mailed them. Some n my congregation also hung out at cemeteries and approached visitors with their magazines or tracts.
I didn't even have to take my clothes off when they came to my door. I don't know if it's a coincidence, but they asked me "Do you believe the bible is relevant for today," (no greeting, no introduction.) I said "Which Bible?" They said "Any bible." I said, "The real Bible is still relevant for today but not the bastardized version Jehovah's Witnesses use to control their members." And they literally gasped and left. It kind of confused me, because I was calm and while that's not a very nice response, it's not like I was naked or Satanic or something. I don't know, maybe they were just super sensitive?
The last time the JWs showed up was the day my new puppy went to her first obedience class. It had been muddy, so she'd gone straight into the tub for a rinse. We'd just finished when the JWs knocked. When an untrained cocker spaniel meets new people, there's only one thing that's going to happen: she popped right up for head scritches and left wet pawprints on their knees. That was over 20 years ago and they haven't been back.
It's worth also learning what your city laws are for door to door soliciting. In my city, all salesman are legally required to have a permit and badge. They are also legally required to honor no soliciting signs. If I ever open the door for a solicitor I ask "please show me your solicitation permit." Usually they'll turn around and walk away immediately as they rarely have one. This can result in hefty fines if their business is reported. And will result in a loss of their permit if they have one and ignore no soliciting signs.
Haven't seen a JW in a long time, knock on wood. Back when I was young and naive I made the mistake of letting one in once and trying to reason with her. She hounded me for weeks after. Lesson learned. These days it is mostly people trying to sell me aluminum siding or lawn chemicals or other bullshit I don't need.
I've never had that either. What kind of neighborhood do you live in? I think they tend to not serve anything other than suburbs door-to-door. If it looks even remotely sketch(broken down cars, chainlink fencing with boards in some places, wood that doesn't look taken care of) they will tend to avoid those places.
We had Jehovah's witnesses come knocking on our door on CHRISTMAS FRICKING EVE at ungodly hours, and they kept ringing our door bell for like 15 minutes, waking our dog up who started barking at them, finally turning them away.
This is typical JW behavior, at least from my own experience. They have no boundaries or manners. They have no social skills and do not respect anyone’s privacy. My husband sees nothing wrong with bothering people while they’re shopping or filling their cars with gas. Yet he gets angry when we go to Sam’s club and are approached by the home improvement, wireless and solar sales people. We’ve gone on walks in our neighborhood and he approaches people with personal questions, then launches into his JW spiel. It’s cringey. I don’t want my neighbors to think I’m a JW. We have to take back our power. Because they have no manners we have to be the ones to end the conversations and tell them to not come back. Sometimes we have to threaten them with calling the police. We would do it for other salespeople. We have to do it with them else they will keep returning. Do not let them have their self perceived exalted status.
I totally understand their sense of urgency. I was raised very religious so that I understand. What really gets me is ministering to people like that isn't about the person they (not only JW's there are other denominations that can get pretty aggressive) are trying to save from hell. It ends up being about them and that's the part that really bothers me. In the situation in my driveway, it wasn't about my comfort, the fact that I was being asked very invasive questions in front of my kids and they weren't being respectful to me. What if it were true? What if I was disfellowshiped over something really horrible? Do you honestly think I would feel comfortable discussing that in front of young children? In that moment, me being 'saved' by them wasn't their priority. The priority was them and how THEY are doing gods work. In that respect, being so pushy about it is ultimately selfish. And even though I don't go to church, it doesn't mean I am not going to be a bad example to my kids and tell a couple of church people to fuck off, and it always seems like that's what they are goading me into doing which feels so wrong. Like 'we're just trying to save her, and she is persecuting us because of our Faith'. Yes, Jesus said to minister to the world. He did not say be pushy then claim victim when people tell you to stop.
So many reasons! I knew I should have left the moment I started having doubts, but at the time, my boyfriend who I was secretly dating, said that not all congregations were like the one I was in and things would be different once we were married. I was taught about their shunning policy before I was supposed to learn about it. When I asked about whether or not they shun, I was initially told that they don’t. I was pressured to shun my never JW kids, especially because they were serving in the military. I learned about case study 29 of the Australian Royal Commission. The Jehovah’s Witnesses covered up thousands of pedophilia cases. They have a Two Witness Rule that elders follow in their “secret” elders handbook, Shepherd the Flock of God that enables them to cover up child sexual abuse. They have punished those who’ve reported the assaults to the police. Rape victims have been disfellowshipped for “pornea.” This is just a few of the many things that are wrong with this high control religion. If you’re curious check out JWFACTS.com or exjw.
i think it depends on where you are. about 5-10 years ago, girl scouts (and other kids selling things, usually sally foster or the cookie dough) went door to door, usually supervised sometimes not. somewhere along the way parents decided doing that was too dangerous and now set up shop outside stores
I’m so sorry. I’m a former Jehovah’s Witness and my congregation pressured us to knock on doors during holidays because it was the best chance of finding people home. Then they reveled in their persecution complex because (surprise surprise) no one wanted to be bothered. Personally I thought it was disgusting and rude but I had to go along else I’d be marked.
My boyfriend is a bit of a scruffy looking guy, long curly hair, beard, etc. One time when some Jehovah's Witnesses came by, he answered the door in nothing but his boxers. They legit didn't come back for a few years, I think he scared them. My dad had one of those evolution fish bumper stickers on his car in the driveway. That deterred some too, and if it didn't, he just politely pointed it out to them and sent them away.
There used to be this pair of JW's (older lady and younger-ish guy) that would show up at my house every single week. She was super nice but I had told her basically from the get go that I had experienced a tremendous amount of church hurt(non LDS church but whatever), that my faith was my own for the time being, and was not interested in returning to organized religion anytime soon and that I needed some space. She did not take the hint. A few more months of this lady showing up at random times of the day and I get really frustrated so I looked up the JW term for being ostracized so that she would leave me alone and the next time she showed up at my house I told her I was disfellowshiped and again that I was not interested. A couple days later, she and this new guy who apparently was some higher up in the church show up at my house and corner me in my driveway. This guy pulls a little notepad out of his pocket and a pen (no joke the same kind you see cops pull from a pocket in detective movie) and start grilling me about my supposed disfellowship, what church, who was involved, what happened, when was this, where was this, I mean, this was in front of my kids who are really little. I was completely taken aback. I had to find the kindest way to politely tell them to buzz off and not to bother us again. I get the sense of urgency with them that you don't want someone to go to hell, but at what point do you look at yourself and maybe say 'im not respecting this person's privacy or wishes' and maybe leave them alone? I feel bad for being forced to lie to them. That certainly doesn't feel good, but I'm also angry that they tried to grill me in front of my kids. I haven't seen anyone in quite a while so I'm assuming they just put a Scarlet letter on my house and moved on.
I spent over a year conversing with a JW when I was a fundamentalist Christian. My husband and I invited her in (she was always with someone, but never the same person twice.) I was naive and just coming at things from a point of what the original Ancient Hebrew and Septuagint verses really meant, and eventually she had someone visiting who was high up in their organization and I still out-debated him from a biblical perspective. I did 4 years at a Christian university, studying the Bible in depth with really knowledgable professors. I was like, the most nerdy, obsessive, overly educated Bible geek. But what I got out of it when it was all said and done, was that this woman loved her father more than anything else in her life. He was a great dad, an inspiration, someone who made her who she was, yet she had to cut him out of her life because he wasn't a JW. She hurt for him every day and was in pain, and cried when she talked about him, but used that to prove her point that you have to sacrifice to do Jehovah's will. It really made me wonder why anyone would want to be a part of an organization that causes families that kind of pain. It's unbiblical and unhealthy.
I gave them a reasoned argument once for why it's wrong to attempt to predict the hour or the day and they looked at me like I had grown seven heads. Wasn't nasty about it or anything. Slamming the door in their face or telling them you're Catholic/a satanist (much of a muchness in a lot of their eyes) may be satisfying in the moment but a worldly person with a biblically sourced opinion can be a bit harder to shake off if they're wavering. It probably made zero difference and they've 90% gone over to the carts here now, but honestly I felt better about the whole thing afterwards. The cart people don't approach me, the local Kingdom Hall must not have a wheelchair ramp or something. Seriously though, people need to start seeing it for what it is - a high control death cult. They may be a door-knocking meme to most but they're mainly victims of a horrendous organisation that is literally celebrating the deaths of children. I'd rather have the double glazing lads try to sell me shit three times a week than they continue to peddle their apocalyptic nonsense and I already have double glazing. I wish shouting at them worked, I'm argumentative as they come, but it just feeds the persecution complex. I wish they'd all give up when it's obvious whatever ridiculous extension they've given their end of the world predictions is proven wrong, but a large number will just swallow whatever the governing body tells them. I wish everyone knew what they think will happen to those of us with the wrong beliefs when Jesus returns, but they don't mention the burning painful death upfront. Seriously fuck the people at the top who indoctrinated the rest knowing all the ill they were doing to the world. Fuck them sideways.
This just kinda seems dickish to me, but I’ve never lived somewhere where people are constantly trying to convert me to their religion so I guess this could be fair. But as a guy who used to go door to door selling window washing in University while running my own little company with 2 friends I would 100% still have knocked. C’mon who doesn’t want their windows to be clean?
I was just thinking about this the other day as a potential response to someone messaging me and trying to sell me something. I would tell them I find it completely inappropriate for door-to-door sellers these days as they are coming to my house, my private and personal space and it feels very intrusive, especially as a female so I don’t even answer the door if I can help it. I’m not going to answer to ppl using my personal social media to sell me crap either. Edit: omg 2 minutes after I wrote this, I saw a man walking up to my door and said, “oh sh!t” thinking it was a salesman...luckily it was just the amazon delivery guy...got me paranoid now! 🤣
Does god not punish child molesters or something? What the fuck. Not sure if you might be in therapy at all from the brainwashing but I wish you luck in life! I briefly met an ex-JW while getting mental treatment and it broke my heart that she was basically exiled from everything she knew because she wanted to divorce her abusive husband. She had nothing and was demonized to her kids and everybody she knew, because she didn't know anybody who wasn't a JW. It was why she attempted suicide in the first place, and it took her a while to feel "free" because she missed her kids so much. It was so cruel, I don't know how a "good" person could treat somebody that way. :(
I'm sure the Org thanks him. The reason JW's go to your door isn't to recruit your boyfriend, it's to prove to the JW's that non-believers are controlled by Satan. Now they can go back to their safe Kingdom Hall and be grateful to be with safe, good people. It's a control tactic cults use to keep their people in.
Growing up our neighborhood JWs would do this to us EVERY Christmas morning until my dad snapped one year. He answered the door cheerfully, naked, and speaking fondly of the power of nudism. I was horrified. They did not return again and their kids said they weren’t allowed to talk to me after that.
Gated community and sub division. My kids dad lives in a neighborhood of nothing but cul-de-sac and he gets a good amount of door to door kids selling things. Parents or big brothers/sisters tend to go with them.
As a former Jehovah’s Witness I can attest to this. I was in field service with a car group, and when I pointed out a “no soliciting” sign at an apartment complex, the elder in charge of us told us to ignore it because we weren’t selling anything. We were “saving lives.” Even after a manager told us to leave, the elder had us split up and told us to sneak into the buildings. Management threatened us with the police after that. We stopped but the elder said he knew Jehovah was smiling down on us for the persecution we were experiencing. They also made us knock on doors during holidays. Don’t get me started on the letter writing parties to survivors found in obituaries.
I used to get Jehovah's Witnesses by the house once or twice every week. I had a no soliciting sign, SUPER annoying since about half the time they were waking me up after I had just gone to bed (I basically work 3rd shift). I would answer in boxers all the time, made no nevermind to them. I got absolutely sick of it, warned them I was going to start not bothering to throw on clothes when I answered the door. Next time they showed up, I answered completely starkers. They didn't bother me for months. They came back again after they forgot about it, I answered in my birthday suit again. I haven't had them knock on my door again in almost 9 years now.
Where do you live that girlscouts go door-to-door selling cookies? In my 30 years on this planet, I have never once had a girl scout ring our doorbell and sell us cookies. They've always been hanging out in front of grocery stores
2019.12.20 22:19 thomaslewis1857Evidence for $100B
In Australia Church funds are kept in 4 accounts. I won’t bother you with what they are called, because I doubt the division means much in terms of usage, but for example one of them is the fast offering fund. You can view them all at the charities and not for profits commission website, acnc.gov.au. Just search LDS (no up to date nomenclature for the Australia holders of the yet!) They show that total Australian cash holdings are about $300M, varying from $220M in the largest fund to $15M at the smallest. The financial statements are either current to 30 June 2019 or 30 June 2018, so there will be some growth since, bast on past performance. What does $300M include? It is all described as “cash at bank”. It does not include the real estate. My understanding is that the real estate is held by “the Corporation of the President ...” and not by the charity. It is evident from the financials that the accumulated cash at bank comes from donations, most substantially tithing. Australian has 150,000 members on the rolls, but that figure is meaningless as it includes 90,000 people who are long dead or who do not regard themselves a member, a Mormon, and Lds, a “member of the ...” or the like. The past two censuses (not sure if it is “censi”) reveal 60,000 who self-identify as members, active or inactive. So that means the Australian arm holds (300M/60k =) 5000 per member. If the Church has only 10M members worldwide, that would equate to $50B if the same $/member figure applied. But the Church is newer in Australia. It didn’t really amount to anything until about 1960. It is approximately 100 years newer than the Utah Church. As a consequence it has a greater proportion of first generation members, who tend to be poorer, more humble, more easily persuaded, than the average middle income or wealthy person. I have no doubt that the average member is poorer in Australia. Sure there are some millionaires but not many, and there are no billionaires. That may change over time. Add that to the much longer period of giving by the US body, and the perhaps greater history of philanthropy in the US than in Australia. And would not the US central Church retain most (proportionally) of the funds there? And the peak Australian fund was only established in 2012, the others in 1980, so these amounts have accumulated in just a short time. In the result, it would be entirely unsurprising that the overall $/member amount is much higher worldwide, even accepting third world membership. To me 100B+ is to be expected for the cash reserves. I have ignored the exchange rate, but that varies, although at the moment the value of the $A is modest by historical standards and is currently under $US.7.

Your first reply to my initial comment was dickish.
False, you are lying. [Here]1 is my reply to your initial comment. The only way that is insulting to you is if you are the sock puppet of the OP. Oops ... did you just out yourself?
But I wasn't, and you know I wasn't
Nope, it was you as clearly shown by the quotes. You are a terrible, and prolific, liar.
Being from the South does not make you a racist.
Didn't say it did, but being an apologist for slavery does.
Having fond feelings toward the Confederacy does not make you a racist.
If it is part of your racism and apologia for slavery, yes. If you say the Civil War was about states rights, yes.
You know from context exactly what I mean.
It just shows your lack of knowledge of the subject. Colonial slavery has a specific meaning not restricted to your opinion on what it should mean.
really don't know how you keep missing this
How am I missing something that I have been talking about throughout the thread?
There is no such thing as run-of-the-mill slavery
Standard as in not particularly brutal, such as murdering live slaves in religious or civic events. We are discussing your claim that the American trade was "particularly brutal". Clearly it was not as bad as other forms.
Colonial slavery was a different take on slavery to what had been practiced previously.
False, as shown by any number of Empires previously cited that you completely ignore.
Do you have a source on this? I'm seeing lower estimates.
[Slavery in the Late Roman World, AD 275-425 by Kyle Harper.]2
Imperial China was not as powerful as colonial Europe.
It held infinitely more power over those people than colonial Europe. In 1200 China had a population of 140 million, 40% of the estimated world population. Once again the white Eurocentric view completely ignores a slave population because they know nothing about it.
They may have governed more people, but they couldn't realistically conquer
They didn't have to conquer the backward west, they conquered Asia instead which is where all the people and wealth was.
This required a series of technological and scientific advancements that China didn't have.
Ahahaha. You should look into the many things you are referring to. A lot of them were discovered in China (and the Muslim world) and then passed along to Europe once it recovered from the Christian inspired suppression of knowledge.
The same has happened throughout history when different populations meet.
I can't say whether it would have been as large as China
It wouldn't even be close.
They were particularly brutal
Cool, you admit your initial point was wrong. We done now?
Their forms of slavery tended to be smaller in scope and less brutal
Citation needed. Give specific nations you are referring to so we can fact check them and then present those equally as brutal as the Mayans to counter.
Did any one of them enslave as many total people as the European colonial powers did?
Yes, millions. In Vedic culture there were whole castes who were born, lived, and died as slaves. China too, with a population of 140 million in 1200.
I do not know that to be false
Now you do, so you won't be repeating it again.
the enslaved population in Sparta was smaller
Sparta? Oh right you are a liar who is incapable of a good faith discussion. I said Rome not Sparta, and the "above countries" which were - Persian Empire, The Spartan, The Vedic societies of India or the later Indian Muslim conquests. What about the Shang Dynasty of ancient China? Where is Sparta in there?
None of your examples "fully match the scale and style of colonial slavery."
Only if you are completely ignorant of the subject, as you are. The examples fully match the scale and style of colonial slavery.
The boat wasn't the only place that these slaves died
We are talking about deaths in transit, as you claimed that the figures were far worse than other eras and practices of slavery.
They were also marched long distances (with very high fatality rates)
So you are now saying the walking through Africa part was worse. So you agree with me that your point is horseshit, and that Roman slave trains likely had a far higher mortality rate than Atlantic slave trains.
The ship was possibly the safest leg
Lol at the furious back pedalling.
11 million went to these non-US locations.
False, the chart lists locations as they were known at the time. Once the USA was formed, many of those locations became part of the USA. If you want to provide figures with citations, go ahead.
explain how Roman slave culture didn't influence the way Europeans perceived slavery.
Burden of proof is yours. You need to prove it did. I don't need to prove anything yet.
They were considered slaves in Aztec society
No, as they entered into an agreement voluntarily and could leave it once their debt was paid. They did the same work but slave and indentured servant is an important disctinction in discussing slavery.
You clearly did misunderstood (sic)
I clearly understood that you don't know what you are talking about.
Ancient Rome influenced colonial Europe via Christianity.
Ancient Rome was not Christian. They had Christian slaves eaten alive by various animals for their amusement.
may not have been more imperialist by intent, but they were certainly more imperialist by effect
False, one of those Imperial empires controlled more people and land than any European empire, as one example. They colonised, enslaved, and stole the local resources just as much as Europeans did.
They colonized far more land than any nation before them.
Utterly false. See China.
They simply had a great deal more military might
Yeah, the Persians and Mongols were well known for just asking smaller nations to pretty please surrender or they would go home in a sulk. Get fucking real, the Macedonians conquered the known world (to them) via military technology and supremecy.
The US military is drastically more powerful than any other military that has ever existed.
False. France, to take one example, could destroy the USA in minutes. So could Russia and China. The UK, eg, was never under existential threat from any geo-political rival during the days of Empire. The UK's lead on its rivals during that period is far, far greater than any current US advantage.
If it were suddenly in the US's interests to forcibly colonize other continents, there's not a whole lot stopping them
America turning into a glass would definitely stop them. Simply threatening to drop a single nuke on Washington would stop them.
They could do far more damage than the colonial European empires ever could.
And they would suffer equally as much damage, something the old colonial powers would never suffer.
They were no more evil than any other culture would be in that situation.
You really want to minimise other massive slave trades while trying to portray the Atlantic trade as a special evil. There were far worse slave trades with likely much higher attrition rates. Why you feel compelled to do that is open to debate, but I think it's pretty clear by now.
which included a big uptick in slavery.
A completely average uptick in slavery when powerful empires meet less powerful ones.
I really don't understand why you keep doing this
I am sure you don't, because you don't have a fucking clue what you are talking about.
Every time you argue against a point I didn't actually make
This is what you said -
The European powers were particularly powerful after a long arms race with each other
Which is utter garbage and I used the example of Macedon to prove it. "Particularly powerful" is a relative term, as they were not "particularly powerful" compared to modern armies. Empires throughout history have been "particularly powerful" compared to their neighbours after the arms race that has been going on since humans first hit each other with a thigh bone.
Region != culture. Cultures emerge, migrate, evolve, die out
What, like ancient Rome? You claimed that influences every aspect of modern Europe, yet you now claim the Romes of other regions did not do the same for their regions?
Were their ancestors the same culture?
Did Rome influence Europe or not? You claimed it did, yet large areas of Europe never had anything to do with the Romans.
No, it does not depend on which side of the argument you want to be one this time. As shown above, you have no consistentcy even within your own arguments.
Same as Inuit, not having neighours and living in a vast hostile landscape are not conducive to slavery. You cannot claim they had no slavery of rival tribes though, as there are no records to study with a completely oral history.
Are from a long history of slave ownership cultures in the region, and multiple tribes engaged in the trade. It is also not a specific tribe, it is a grouping. The region they are from was one of the active inter-Africa slave trade areas dating back to pre-history. Southern and Western African states also practiced human sacrifice, usually the victims being slaves.
You picked a bad example here, as the slave trade was definitely a thing in areas they inhabit such as Sweden, dating back to the Norse raiders at least. They share the same ancestors.
Brazil has had slavery since long before the Europeans arrived and tribes such as the Yanomami used to enslave their neighbours in the same manner as tribes throughout the world.
slavery is not really a component of most modern cultures anymore
It is definitely a component of some modern cultures, in Africa and Asia at least.

The following articles are linked directly from MeWe's Press page:
The page also lists a "Privacy Revolution Required Reading" list of 20 articles all addressing Facebook privacy gaffes in the mainstream press (Wired, TechCrunch, Fortune, Gizmodo, The Guardian, etc.). There are further self-reported mentions in several of the company's PR releases over the years.
Facebook Alternative MeWe Raises $5.2M, Los Angeles Business Journal (July 7, 2018) "The latest round, as well as MeWe’s total $10 million in fundraising, was predominantly backed by celebrity investors, such as author Marci Shimoff, Rachel Roy, and Lynda Weinman, founder of Lynda.com, which sold to Linkedin in 2015 for $1.5 billion. Jack Canfield, creator of the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” book series, also invested in MeWe."
Is building a Facebook alternative worth the effort? MeWe thinks soVentureBeat (July 5, 2018) "[T]here are still companies hoping to make their mark in the social networking realm with “Facebook alternatives.” One of those is MeWe, a “next-generation” social network that positions itself as the anti-Facebook: “Your private life is not for sale. No ads. No Spyware. No BS,” its website proclaims." Continues to mention "modest $5.2 million" funding round. Also a "sister product", MeWePRO, a Slack competitor.
Startup MeWe Launches Free, 'No Ads' Social NetworkeWeek (March 16, 2016) "MeWe, a new network engineered with its users' data privacy built in, is betting that a lot of people will say yes to both of those questions. The Mountain View, Calif.-based startup, whose parent company is Sgrouples.com, launched its freely available social network out of beta March 9 with more than 200,000 members already using it.... Sir Tim Berners-Lee, co-architect of the World Wide Web, found out about MeWe on his own and approached the company about getting involved."
Facebook Alternative MeWe closes $5.2M Series A Yahoo/PR Newswire (July 5, 2018).

This section is a basic rundown of the user-visible site technology.
The site is not natively accessible from a mobile Web browser as it is overlayed with a promotion for the mobile application instead. Selecting "Desktop View" in most mobile browsers should allow browser-based access.
There are both Android and iOS apps for MeWe. I've used neither of these, though the App store entries note:
MeWe Android 4.4 rating (13.1k ratings). Permissions: Contacts (read), Location (approximate/precise), SMS (receive), Phone (read status & identity), Photos/Media/Files (read, modify, & delete contents), Storage (read, modify, or delete), Camera (take pictures/videos), Microphone (record audio), Device ID & Call Info (read status & identity), and numerous elements under Other.
Crunchbase cites 209,220 mobile downloads over the past 30 days (via Apptopia), an 80.78% monthly growth rate, from Google Play.
Either selecting "View Desktop" or navigating with a Desktop browser to https://www.mewe.com your are presented with a registration screen, with the "About", "Privacy Bill of Rights", "MeWe Challenge", and a language selector across the top of the page. Information requested are first and last name, phone or email, and a password. Pseudonymous identities are permitted, though this isn't noted on the login screen. Returning members can use the "Member Log In" button. The uMatrix Firefox extension reveals no third-party content: all page elements are served from mewe.com, img.mewe.com, cdn.mewe.com, or ws.mewe.com. (In subsequent browsing, you may find third-party plugins from, for example, YouTube, for videos, or Giphy, for animated GIFs.) The web front-end is nginx. The site uses SSL v3, issued by DigiCert Inc. to Sgrouples, Inc.
The onboarding experience is stark. There is no default content presented. A set of unidentified icons spans the top of the screen, these turn out to be Home, Chats, Groups, Pages, and Events. New users have to, somehow, find groups or people to connect with, and there's little guidance as to how to do this.
Generally there is a three panel view, with left- and right-hand sidebars of largely navigational or status information, and a central panel with main content. There are also pop-up elements for chats, an omnipresent feature of the site. Controls display labels on some devices and/or resolutions. Controls do not provide tooltips for navigational aid.

A key aspect of any social network is its community. Some of the available or ascertained information on this follows.
Weinstein claims a "million+ following inside MeWe.com" on Twitter. The largest visible groups appear to have a maximum of around 15,000 members , for "Awesome gifs". "Clean Comedy" rates 13,350, and the largest open political groups, 11,000+ members. This compares to Google+ which has a staggering, though Android-registrations-inflated 3.3 billion profiles, and 7.9 million communities, though the largest of these come in at under 10 million members. It's likely that MeWe's membership is on the whole more more active than Google+'s, where generally-visible posting activity was limited to just over 9% of all profiles, and the active user base was well under 1% of the total nominal population.
MeWe do not publish active users (e.g., MUA / monthly active users) statistics.
MeWe is principally a group-oriented discussion site -- interactions take place either between individuals or within group contexts. Virtually all discovery is group-oriented. The selection and dynamics of groups on the site will likely strongly affect user experience, so exploring the available groups and their characteristics is of interest. "MeWe has over 60,000 open groups" according to its FAQ. The Open groups -- visible to any registered MeWe user, though not to the general public Web -- are browsable, though sections and topics must be expanded to view the contents: an overview isn't immediately accessible. We provide a taste here. A selection of ten featured topics spans the top of the browser. As I view these, they are:
Health & Fitness
Cars & Motorcycles
Fashion and Beauty
Specific groups may appear in multiple categories. The top Groups within these topics have, variously, 15,482, 7,738, 15,482 (dupe), 7,745, 8,223, 8,220, 1,713, 9,527, 2,716, and 1,516 members. Listings scroll at length -- the Music topic has 234 Groups, ranging in size from 5 to 5,738 members, with a median of 59, mean of 311.4, and a 90%ile of 743.5. Below this is a grid of topics, 122 in all, ranging from Activism to Wellness, and including among them. A selected sample of these topics, with top groups listed members in (parens), follows:
Activism: QAnon+++ (2,572), PATRIOT PREPPERS USA (2,430), Deplorables Republic (2,48), The War Drummer (1,898), Patriots for a United America. (1894), Anonymous (1,700).

Privacy: Join the Open/Privacy Movement (3974), Kingsport tn gun trader (1,157), Safer Computing (555).
To be clear: whilst I've not included every topic, I've sampled a majority of them above, and listed not an arbitrary selection, but the top few Groups under each topic.
Google Plus expats (1,862)
Google+ Refugees (186)
G+ Refugees (101)
my Google+ expatriates
The Google Plus expats group seems the most active of these by far.
It's curious that MeWe make a specific point in their FAQ that:
At MeWe we have absolutely no political agenda and we have a very straightforward Terms of Service. MeWe is for all law-abiding people everywhere in the world, regardless of political, ethnic, religious, sexual, and other preferences.
There are 403 political groups on MeWe. I won't list them all here, but the first 100 or so give a pretty clear idea of flavour. Again, membership is in (parentheses). Note that half the total political Groups memberships are in the first 21 groups listed here, the first 6 are 25% of the total.

It seems there is relatively little representation from the left wing, or even the centre, of the political spectrum. A case-insensitive match for "liberal" turns up:
104: Conservatives Against Liberal Beliefs C.A.L.I.B (273)
184: Progressive and Liberal Politics (119)
301: Liberalism is a Mental Disorder (33)
302: Resistance Against Liberal Socialism (33)
358: NOT For Liberals (17)
367: Drinking Liberally Houston (14)
400: Stephanie Miller's Sexy Liberal Army (6)
Mainstream political parties are little represented, though again, the balance seems skewed searching on "(democratrepublicgop)":
391: Saving The Republic: Video News & Opinion (8)
The terms "left" and "right" provide a few matches, not all strictly political-axis aligned:
7: The Right To Self Defense (3757)
80: RISE OF THE RIGHT (371)
150: POLITICS ON THE LEFT (156)
157: 1st Amendment Rights Protected By The 2nd Amendmen (141)

262: Eyes-Left Labour & PP - Social Media (49)
300: Gather Left (33)
385: Defend Washington State Gun Rights (9)
390: Left Coast Conservatives (8)
Socialism and Communism also warrant a few mentions:
121: Revolutionary Socialists United (204)
216: Socialist Thought (79)
220: Stories Of Communism (76)
262: Eyes-Left Labour & PP - Social Media (49)
288: Snuggly Wuggly Socialists (38)
302: Resistance Against Liberal Socialism (33)
And there are some references to green, laboulabor parties:
97: FRIENDS THAT LIKE JILL STEIN AND THE GREEN PARTY (292)
100: Green Party Supporters 2020 (283)
262: Eyes-Left Labour & PP - Social Media (49)
320: Green Party of Ohio Issues & Discussion Group (29)
Whilst there may not be a political agenda, there does appear to be at least a slight political bias to the site. And a distinctive skew on many other topical subjects. Those seeking new homes online may wish to take this into account.

"The proportion of men must be reduced to and maintained at approximately 10% of the human race." — Sally Miller Gearhart, in The Future - If There Is One - Is Female. "To call a man an animal is to flatter him; he’s a machine, a walking dildo." _Valerie Solanas, Authoress of the SCUM Manifesto
I grew up a Jehovah's Witness. No birthdays. No holidays. I grew up in abuse, because of their religious policies. They tell women that they aren't allowed to get divorced unless it is a case of infidelity, or apostasy. So basically, you can have the shit beat out of you mentally and emotionally, and they won't care. We called anyone that wasn't in our cult "worldly". We were not allowed to associate with worldly people, unless we were out in "service". Service is what people hate JWs the most for. Service is when they knock on your door early in the morning. Higher education is discouraged. Associating with members that have left is forbidden. Blood transfusions are forbidden even if it is a matter of life and death. Your every waking moment is meant to be given to "Jehovah". You have free time after school? Better pick up that WatchTower magazine, and study further. Your work schedule interferes with the convention? Tough shit. Hope you don't get fired for missing work! You have a scholarship to a prestigious college? You can't take it. It would disappoint "Jehovah". You get judged for everything. How you style your hair. What you wear. What you say. What you do in the bedroom (married or not). If you are a little girl in the JW cult, you are not allowed to have any independent thought. You only have options deemed "appropriate" by the elders. You either get "lucky" and marry an old bastard elder at 18 (or younger). Stay single/celibate and full time pioneer. That means no retirement/living with your parents the rest of your life. There is nothing for you beyond that. If you are a boy, your life goal is to be an eldeBethelite. Bethel, is the place that is similar to Scientology headquarters. It is where the Governing Body (leaders of JW cult) pump out propaganda literature. So anyone that is sick of being woken up on Saturday, blame it on the goons that keep making end time predictions.... I could go on and on about their bullshit. Anyway, long story short. I realized I didn't want to be a JW at 10 years old. During this time my mother was married to an abusive JW man. It took 8 years before she divorced him. We left the cult when I turned 17. Been out ever since. I ran and didn't look back. The way I grew up has scarred me deeply. I am much better now, but I will not be quiet about what I went through. Other people are suffering. They need survivors to speak out. It isn't just the JWs. It is all high control group survivors. What we went through was not okay. The people in charge need to be brought to justice. So I heavily encourage anyone reading this to look at the BITE model, and the Australian Royal Commission. The JWs have been hiding pedophiles in their congregations for years.

Thanks for posting that My ex wife was a jw when she was a kid I know some pretty Horrible stories and everything you said is true We had to run away at 16 to escape this My ex and I are still good family ;)
They are told they have a life saving message and that if they want to survive Armageddon they need to try to save as many people as possible. They are “encouraged” or guilted to go door knocking when they are likely to find someone home. This creates a mix of fear, obligation and guilt. Very few witnesses actually like going door to door but they feel they have no choice not only is your social acceptance in the congregation dependent on your devotion in service, but the elders collect your hours, return visits, Bible studies and literature placements each month on a slip of paper so if you don’t do it you feel guilty and in fear of the elders asking you why you didn’t go out more. The average used to be about 10 hours a month per publisher as the standard to maintain. If you are what they call a pioneer your commitment is 70 hours a month. When I was a pioneer back in the day it used to be 90 a month. The door to door work serves another purpose in that if you can convince someone else to believe what you believe it strengths your belief that what you believe is true. Although, witnesses are not sequestered on a compound they are very much isolated, in that they are told “worldly” people don’t have morals and can’t be trusted and that they are all going to be destroyed by god at Armageddon. You generally don’t get to attached to people that are set for destruction and that will turn on you according to their doctrine. If you want to see some examples of what they teach go to YouTube and google 2018 Be Courageous videos from their annual convention and you’ll see some crazy videos. For other scandals you can also google Jehovah’s Witness child abuse they have a problem on scale with the Catholic Church but most people don’t know about it because they are so much smaller.
You are absolutely right. They are a cult. They fit every aspect of the BITE model. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. I grew up a Jehovah's Witness.... Don't even get me started on their dirty little secrets and similarities to the LDS church. Not in doctrine, but how they "run" things. You are always welcome to drop by exjw
I grew up as a Jehovah's Witness until about the age of 12 or so. Before school age, I didn't realize anything was "weird" about me. Once I went to school, though, it became apparent. On my first day of kindergarten, I got called out for not saluting the flag with the rest of the kids (my parents told me to stand respectfully, but not to put my hand over my heart or recite the pledge). I was a shy kid who tried not to stand out, so having the teacher single me out sucked. After my mom explained about the JW thing, she understood though. When a classmate had a birthday, I couldn't have the treats that their parent brought in. Same with Christmas. Had to go sit in the hall or go to the library and read while the class did their Christmas party. Ditto for Halloween, Easter, and most other holidays. My parents tried to make it up to me however they could. For example, their wedding anniversary was near Christmastime. We'd celebrate that with a big party, extended family visit, good food, and lots of presents for me. I was in my teens before realizing that most people don't celebrate their parents' anniversary that way. I also couldn't do organized sports, pep rallies, or really associate with any non-JW friends outside of school, because "bad associations spoil useful habits". Another interesting side note was that my dad used to be a JW. He was kicked out (they call it disfellowshipped) because he smoked cigarettes and was unable to kick the habit. So when JWs came over to visit my mom, most of them wouldn't speak to my dad. Some of the JW parents wouldn't let their kids play at my house because my dad might be there. My sister and brother left the organization in their late teens. I hated being a part of it and finally drifted away around the age of 12 or so. We would have been considered "apostates" by the JW organization because we were raised in "the Truth" but chose to leave anyway. Mom would have been discouraged from associating with us, even though we were her family. She had her own issues with that organization but when she had to choose between the JWs and her family...she chose her family. I'm glad we are no longer a part of the JWs. Looking back, they really are like a cult.
I grew up as a 3rd generation Jehovah's Witness. At the time, there were 3 "meetings" a week. 2 at the church, which they call "Kingdon Halls", and one on Sundays that lasted about 2 hours each. I'd have to sit through these meetings and be forced to evangelize every Saturday morning as a child, and even moreso as I got older. I always remember how sad 10 year old me was to miss Saturday morning cartoons because I had to go knocking on people's doors. My parents were extremely deep into the religion. They were your "spare the rod, spoil the child" types. I wasn't allowed to have friends from school, I couldn't date as a teenager, my phone was constantly monitored, I wasn't allowed to watch Harry Potter, I can go on forever. Your behavior as a child was seen as a reflection of the "spirituality" of your house as a whole. If you weren't baptised by a certain age (usually 12 or earlier), you were seen as "bad association" in the congregation. As a child growing up amongst other jw kids, the fear of being labeled and cast aside was real, and thus, I was baptised at 12. As a woman, I felt very repressed by the church. Women weren't allowed to be teachers, and couldn't even pray in the presence of a man without a head covering. There are a group of men gathered at the JW Headquarters in NY who govern what men and women are to wear, how they interact with each other, and what you do in your free time. They publish literature called the Watchtower and Awake that are riddled with misquotes from scientific scholars and misinterpretations of the bible. I could go on and on about Jehovah's Witnesses and their teachings. I was disfellowshipped, or excommunicated, once when I was 17, came back, and ended up leaving for good about a year and a half ago. I started questioning their "facts", along with feelings of disagreement with their shunning policy. I'm currently being shunned by my entire family and live far away from them. AMA lol
The thing that messes you the most growing up as a JW is you were "encouraged" to think critically of the bible and of its teaching, especially if it's taught by other religions, but when you do some actual critical thinking, you're shunned and told that it's a big no no.
Holy shit. This and OP’s comment scare me. For a few years I occasionally get Jehova’s Witnessed at my door, it’s always the same lady in her 50’s or so, usually with another person. I always have a conversation with them at the door and they give me the Watchtower and read some Bible passages. Now I’m not religious at all, if anything I have mostly had a big fascination for alien life and since the age of 6 have been quite fixated on the whole alien and UFO subject, but I never push it onto anyone. However, I do think it’s interesting to learn a bit about other religions so I don’t mind the conversation with the JW’s and I sometimes read their magazines a little bit (and with a purely skeptic mindset ofcourse), then I’ll talk about the magazine with my friends (all non-reigious) and we discuss it for fun. I have once asked the JW’s about their view on homosexuality. She said it was a sin but that as long as you didn’t act on it it was okay, and that they had homosexual people in their church too. And I asked about their view on transgenders (I’m a transmale (previous lesbian? Now straight I guess) and she said that’s okay because they’re born that way and can’t help it. (I thought, well gay people are born like this too). I knew it was a cult but I just thought it was very strict, I never expected it to be this extreme and abusive as I read in the stories in this thread. What the fuck. Is there anything I can say or do to help? Or anything I can tell them?
I was raised in a small Christian denomination called the Christadelphians. It's similar to the Jehovah's Witness, but smaller. My mother was disfellowshipped for marrying out of the "truth", so we grew up away from an ecclesia in "isolation". She still encouraged our involvement, and forced our attendance at all retreat type gatherings. It was a weird kind of straddling of two worlds. I was taught at a young age to omit any transgressions my parents leniency enabled, and treated as a sort of second class citizen.
Central Pennsylvania resident, and ex-JW here. Christalephians actually came first, and I was always interested in them due to their similar belief structure. Looked around for some Ecclesia, but most are just old buildings with few attendants. It's like a geriatric ward. This religion is nearly extinct. This is the future we are seeing with the JW's, as the youth are not going to put up with their manipulative crap, and are leaving in droves thanks to the knowledge of their lies on the internet. Retention is like 30% according to Pew Surveys.
Allow me to explain. They came out with an "updated" version of their already watered down New World Translation Bible. It is common that anytime the Governing Body comes out with "special" literature/doctrine changes, they will have everyone come to the kingdom halls (church) when they announce it. Most of the time, it happened on a Saturday. We have religious conventions as well. Basically, we rent out a coliseum, and listen to whatever nonsense they have come up with during the year. It lasts 3 days. Usually on what would be Christmas break for other children/students.
It is terrible , I had recent realization I was in one after years and lost my sleep for 24 hours , nausea , vomiting . I couldn’t believe my parents couldn’t see for themselves. I read all of the past of my cult and cried incessantly to know my past was a waste of time . My folks, They think I’m satanically influence because I don’t believe in our cult anymore . I was born in. 7 generations of my family living a lie , waiting for the end of the world. The leaders of the cult kept on changing prophecy and leading us to whitewash our own past. Researching is a sin and critical thinking is a serious sin against god . Forsaking your future eternal life . I shunned my siblings for years and couldn’t express my real sexuality . I’m Bi. I didn’t go to college I never dated who I wanted to Because they were out of the cult I tried suicide three times. Suicidal ideation for all of my life till now . Now I actually want t live for me and do all the things I couldn’t . I was a Jehovah’s Witness.
Is it like playing 'Never Have I Ever" between the exmos and exjws? "Never have I ever....had to be baptized for the dead." exmormons take a drink "Never have I ever.... had to pretend my birthday didn't exist." exjws take a drink Sounds like an interesting crowd.
My experience is that they'll say that, especially when speaking to a non believer. But in actual practice, they don't. As an elder, their first required action is to contact the JW legal department, and if there isn't a second witness to the abuse, they "leave it in Jehovah's hand". Have you heard of the Australian Royal Commission? Over a thousand pedophiles, and none were reported to the police by the elders or the organization, and that's just in Australia.
If you google "Candace Conti", you'll see that that's almost exactly what they did. They didn't "relocate" him per se, as his moving congregations was of his own volition, but they knew he was a child molester, and hid it from the new congregation, even writing in a letter that he was "good with kids". It's a horrid religion that cares more for it's own image than it does for children. http://www.jwfacts.com/watchtowepaedophilia.php That being said, it's possible your father in law was being honest with you and that he's one of the very, very rare good guys who will ignore watchtower policy and do what's right. They're few and far between.
Luckily she and her siblings were mostly grown when he became a witness. He was a really nice guy, very easy to get along with. But nobody can fight that long and have a full deck. He only fought because he had no choice, 3 kids, a wife and only 1 skill on how to make a living. But yes, I would characterize him as an easy target. EDIT: I'm reading about the Conti case you mentioned. I don't mean to minimize her ordeal, nobody should have to go through what she went through. But it does seem to be more isolated and not the institutional level of Bishops/Vatican acting as pimps for pedophile catholic priests. I also have to wonder if ex g/f's father didn't have an effect on any less than appropriate people in his Kingdom Hall. As benevolent and decent as he was, you can't talk to and interact with someone like that and not be aware he could catastrophically injure or kill most people with his bare hands. I remember asking him how JW felt about the death penalty. He said, "the only time it's justified is if it's to protect children. That's right from the King James Bible." He quoted me chapteverse (bible type citation that I really don't know about). Long story short, he was capable of severely hurting/injuring/killing and he made it known that he believed it to be within his rights on a spiritual level if he killed to protect children. I'm guessing anyone with a pedo inclination got the heck out of his congregation.
He wasn't my father in law, just an ex g/f's father. He was kind of a righteous guy but not playing with a full deck. Prior to JW he was a professional boxer and not a great one. He fought until he was 35, way to old to be fighting.
I'm not JW. She had grown up and been raised a JW as her father was very active. But at the time we dated she was disfellowshipped. Probably relevent, her and I were in our 30's when we dated (I'm old).
Yup. I have a friend whose husband (when they were young) molested her 15YO sister. She found out about it when she was in her early 30s so she left him. Oh boy, the kerfuffle that erupted. The entire family except for the molested sister got pissed off that she'd throw her marriage away like that. Her church even threatened to kick her out if she didn't resume her marriage. She does some semblance of a relationship with her mom and dad, but one of her sisters won't talk to her, nor will her extended family. Obviously, she's no longer JW.
2015.12.17 20:33 MiracleBelieverR/CFB Bowl Project: Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl
The Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl (http://lvbowl.com/landing/index) Las Vegas Bowl BYU Cougars BYU vs.Utah Utes Utah Bowl Information Date: December 19th, 2015 Time: 3:30 PM EST Channel: ABC Point Spread: O/U: Utah -2.5 Bowl History Year Founded: 1992 Location: Las Vegas, Nevada Stadium: Sam BoydStadium (Approximately 30 minutes from the Strip and 20 minutes from downtown.) Conference Tie-ins: 1st in MWC or BYU versus 6th in PAC-12. The winner of the MWC Championship has an automatic bid if Hawai’i is bowl eligible. If Hawai’i is not bowl eligible the MWC Champion plays in the Hawai’i bowl, and BYU (assuming eligibility) wins the bid. If neither scenario happens, the 2nd in the Mountain West receives the bid. Trophy, held by Clay Helton after 2013 Bowl Victory. Payout: $1,000,000 2014 Season Result: Utah Utes 45 - Colorado State Rams 10. Full Game. CSU Highlights. Utah Highlights. BYU Cougars BYU 2015 Season Record: 9-3 FBS Indpendent Key Players this Season: Tanner Mangum (QB): The “kid” wonder. Returned from an LDS mission 3 months before the season started, and has set every freshman passing record at BYU. 3,062 yards, 12 TDs, 7 INTs. Bronson Kaufusi (DE): All over the field as a DE. 55 Total Tackles, 17 TFL, 11 sacks, 1 INT, 4 blocked kicks. This is likely the most athletic family in America. His dad and all 7 of his siblings played a D1 sport, all of Bronson’s siblings have played at BYU (between basketball and football. Bronson played both), and I know two of his dad’s brothers are still batting 1.000 with D1 athlete children. Algernon Brown/Francis Bernard (RB): Our 3rd and 4th string backs (due to injury), 2 Polynesian 235-pounders with good hands and speed. Combined for 973 yards, 5.9 ypc, 17 TDs. Also added 26 catches for 199 yards and 4 scores. Biggest Plays this Season: Game Winning Hail Mary in the season opener versus Nebraska,4th down Hail Mary with ~45 seconds left, followed immediately by a pick-6 against Boise State. Season Summary: This team has taken years off many peoples’ life. Our starting running back set to break the school rushing record left for personal reasons right before fall camp started. Our heisman candidate quarterback suffered his 3rd season ending injury in 4 seasons during the first half of game 1. The season included: Hail Mary as time expired against Nebraska 4th down Hail Mary against Boise, followed immediately by a pick-6 with 40 seconds left. 1 point loss to UCLA at the Rose Bowl (gave lead up with ~3 to go) 31-0 shutout at the Big House. Tanner Mangum getting injured against ECU, and trotting out onto the field to lead a game winning drive. SJSU going for 2 to win it with < a minute left and not getting it. Our coach leaving after 11 seasons for Virginia. The team has rallied behind Mangum - the freshman who is going to be the return of the great BYU QB and so have the fans. He is a “field general” in every sense of the word - you could feel it against ECU when he came back hurt. As soon as he stepped on the field, we knew we would win. Why we are going to win: Our offense is much better than Utah’s with them losing Booker and Covey. If we can contain their pass rush, we should be able to score. Containing Wilson on the read option will test us. This is an emotional game - the Utes got invited to the PAC-12, we got left out. They feel above BYU and do not want to be at the game. They don’t want to renew the series as a non-conference game (2014/2015 weren’t played. Scheduled through 2020 I believe). It’s our head coach’s last game, going for his 100th victory. Their coach is on the short list of candidates interviewing to be his replacement. BYU fans bought all the tickets before Utah was announced. This game is a bigger deal than WWII according to at least one person: http://imgur.com/bHqKrZa It’s going to be an emotional game that will be complete crap shoot and likely will have a fight break out between the teams. (We aim to entertain the masses). Utah Utes Utah 2015 Season Record: 9-3 (6-3 Pac-12 South) Key Players this Season: Travis Wilson (QB): The 6’7 senior dual-threat quarterback is a major cog in the Utes offense. He started 11 games this season, going 8-3. He has completed 62.4% of his passes, and thrown for 2,024 yards. In addition, he has thrown for 13 touchdowns. However, turnovers are an issue as he’s thrown 10 interceptions on the season. The dual-threat QB has also shown his athletic ability in helping a potent rushing offense. He has ran for 466 yards (3.7 ypc) and 6 rushing touchdowns. With Devonte Booker’s injury, the Utes will be looking at Wilson to be carrying the load on offense. Devontae Booker (RB): Devontae Booker is Utah’s workhorse running back. Unfortunately, Devontae will not be playing in this bowl game, as he was injured in Utah’s loss against Arizona and is recovering from a torn meniscus. However, Devontae carried the Utah offense on his back, leading the nation in carries per game midway through the season. He had 1261 yards on 268 attempts with 11 tds on the year. Expect Running backs Bubba Poole and Joe Williams, as well as dual-threat Quarterback Travis Wilson, to lead the rushing attack against BYU. Joe Williams has rushed for 386 yards in two games in relief of Booker. Tom Hackett (P): Tom Hackett is the AP First Team All-American Punter and winner of the Ray Guy award. An Australian punter, He punted 55 times for 2628 yards with an average of 47.8 yards per attempt. Gionni Paul (LB): A critical playmaker and leader on the Ute defense. During the 2015 season Gionni recorded 109 total tackles (48 solo), 12.5 tackles for loss, three sacks, four interceptions, two forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery returned 54 yards for a touchdown. Biggest Plays this Season: Utah Utes spoil Jim Harbaugh’s Michigan return in season opener,Utah forces 6 turnovers to beat California Season Summary: Utah started off their season strong and promising. The Utes raced out to a 6-0 start, ruining Jim Harbaugh’s Michigan return, demolishing Oregon in Autzen Stadium, and defeating a then #24 California in those 6 games. The Utes rose to #3 in the rankings after their start. However, things became shaky after a blowout upset against USC, as they lost 42-24. They would beat Oregon State and Washington, but would lose two straight to Arizona and UCLA, as well as lose star running back Devontae Booker on the way. The Utes finished the regular season strong with a 20-14 win over Colorado to finish 9-3 on the season. The Utes finished the regular season ranked #20 in the College Football Playoff rankings. Why we are going to win: The Utah pass rush must get to Tanner Mangum in order to prevent the BYU offense to drive down the field. In a battle of the trenches, Utah’s front seven should have a day against BYU’s suspect offensive line. The defense must continue at a high level, as they have only allowed 21.8 points a game. The Utes must also create turnovers, something the team is good at, considering they are #6 in turnover creation. On offense, Travis Wilson must step up, especially with the absence of Devontae Booker. If the Utes are going to put on points, they will have to throw the ball effectively, a struggle they’ve had through the season. Even though Booker is out with injury, the Utah running game is still very formidable, even with Joe Williams in at running back. Williams has rushed for 386 yards, and in the two games he’s replaced Booker in the lineup, he’s rushed for 121 and 187 yards. Why you should watch: It’s the return of the Holy War. One of the storied rivalries in college football, the Holy War returns after two seasons. Utah leads the series 57-34-4 and has won 4 straight over BYU. In Bronco Mendenhall’s last game as BYU head coach, can he pull out the victory? Or will Utah overcome the loss of Booker and win their 5th straight over BYU and 2nd straight victory in the Las Vegas Bowl? By the way, did we mention that the Holy War is going to be played in Sin City? Contributors BYU Cougars: Miraclebeliever, chem031, Molodyets Utah Utes: Miraclebeliever,Brutus583 Bowl: XSavageWalrusX
2013.05.14 07:59 PhoBoGaIn need of a little advice. (on managing jealousy and communicating, mostly)
M20. F17. Still young, I know. Also just found this subreddit. Sorry in advance if this gets too lengthy. She (Nat) and I met in February last year, and have been together since September, so it's still fairly fresh - we went to different unis but both in Melbourne, and got introduced by mutual friends. We got along really well pretty quickly, and it's just been awesome. It wasn't long distance when we first started dating but overall it's pretty much been long distance. In November she went overseas, and then I left overseas five days before she returned in January. When she got back she applied for med at unis in/around Sydney (better opportunities than in Melb, etc.) and got accepted, having to leave the morning I got back from overseas at the end of Feb. We've seen each other a couple of times since then, but obviously it's still just not the same. But yeah, she'll be studying there for the next 5 years while I'll be stuck in Melbourne for 2-3 more finishing my degree. Especially this year (less so next year) getting around to seeing each other is tough due to a few factors - our uni work, transport; until now, public transport satisfied all my needs so I wasn't in a hurry to get my P's (for non-Australians.. basically a driving license qualification that lets me drive on my own/without a supervisor), and nor has she; and parents; her parents, though mellow now, were pretty much outraged about her getting involved with someone, and so my parents are concerned with me spoiling my reputation with them by "chasing after their daughter", thus not very comfortable with letting me travel up there. Soon my age won't be a determining factor in their decision-making, so I suppose I have only to wait, but yeah. We knew the likelihood of it becoming LD was there, and we discussed it as thoroughly as we could. We were and are both determined to see it through, but that doesn't stop it from being difficult. Just especially lately there's been some strain because of a sort of mutual jealousy popping up, which hit a peak the other night. Besides me just generally envying her friends on campus the time they get to spend with her, she's been concerned about a girl I know (since before we dating) who she resents me spending time with because of that girl's interest in me.. and I'd happily step out of the friendship for Nat but it's hard given that girl and I have already been friends for quite a time, and we regularly see each other because of circumstance. Personally I never really saw the attraction, nor have I felt like I reciprocated it in any way since when Nat and I started dating, and while I've tried to explain that nothing is there, when it cropped up again over the weekend I responded exasperatedly, and the mood's hit a sort of low since then. Besides just general advice, what can we do to try and prevent things from boiling over again? We both do our best to communicate clearly to try and help that from happening, but is there anything else? Also, sorry if the pronouns and stuff got confusing up there. :/ I know advice for our situation is pretty much floating around all over this subreddit and it's a little selfish of me to make you guys repeat it, but I'd like to actually hearead it from someone. Hopefully that isn't too troublesome. Thanks for taking the time to read.
Contrary to the general belief, the Lord is a God of communication, a God of revelation. He is a God of light and intelligence, of knowledge and information. He does not deal in darkness, neither does he save anyone in ignorance. His entire plan of salvation rests upon communication with an enlightened people.
And let's combine this with D&C 1:38 which states (despite apologetic arguments (as it paints them in a difficult position))
What I the Lord have spoken, I have spoken, and I excuse not myself; and though the heavens and the earth pass away, my word shall not pass away, but shall all be fulfilled, whether by mine own voice or by the voice of my servants, it is the same.
I read this as a modern prophet's sermons are accepted as being directly synonymous with the mouth of God. This is supported by the earlier prophets such as Joseph or Brigham even if they embarrass the modern leaders. So what are the high-level points?
(A) Lord is a God of communication, a God of revelation
(B) He is a God of light and intelligence, of knowledge and information
(C) He does not deal in darkness
(D) neither does he save anyone in ignorance
(E) His entire plan of salvation rests upon communication with an enlightened people
And from D&C we have the crux of this entire post.
(F) whether by mine own voice or by the voice of my servants, it is the same
Now lets look at each point in turn.
(A) Lord is a God of communication, a God of revelation
First off, let me say that the LDS church has a long and rich history of revelations. They claim ad-hoc revelations, as well as revelations requiring much thought and pleading. They have also repeatedly stated that special language [such as "thus saith the Lord"] isn't required to distinguish a revelation from a sermon [See #6]. In conjunction with (F) above, they fully and wholly teach that the Prophet's words are as good as Gods and should be obeyed as such.
They also teach a strict hierarchy in revelation. A prophet's words override and overrule all lower claims. This includes, personal revelationyou may supposedly get directly from God. As stated in the manual, your revelation can not contradict the scriptures. (Apparently that right is only for the leaders of the church). See also
Boyd Packer has also taught that rank and file members cannot receive revelation for the church or any position higher than that which they currently hold. A bishop, for example, can't have a revelation that the stake president is unprepared to judge his stake due to (let's say) attempted pedophilia, drugs and molesting medical patients, or drunk driving. Theoretically the Area authorities wouldn't call or would release unqualified men, but at least they usually respond quickly once an arrest is made - especially if public.
This establishes revelation happens, but what of it? Even Warren Jeffs claims to have revelations and prophecies. Let's look at the older works and canon and examine the validity of a few of the revelations:
D&C 45: 64 - 74 - Joseph Smith, acting for God, told members to flee to the west where they would establish "New Jerusalem". He promised, it would be "a land of peace, a city of refuge, a place of safety". See also D&C 105:13-15 where Joseph (claiming to speak with God's voice) stated the saints would win the Missouri conflict. Spoiler: they didn't. Missouri, which is called New Jerusalem, soon enacted an extermination order and pushed the members from the state. An order that wasn't rescinded until 1976.
D&C 104:1 - Claims that the united order would last until the coming of Christ. It failed to meet it's goals and was abandoned before the 5th year. The church then blamed the members for not being ready or capable to live the principal. Whether true or not, the prophecy failed.
The (canonized) History of the church Volume 1, p315 contains another failed second coming prophecy. "And now I am prepared to say by the authority of Jesus Christ, that not many years shall pass away before the United States shall present such a scene of bloodshed as has not a parallel in the history of our nation; pestilence, hail, famine, and earthquake will sweep the wicked of this generation from off the face of the land, to open and prepare the way for the return of the lost tribes of Israel from the north country. The people of the Lord, those who have complied with the requirements of the new covenant, have already commenced gathering together to Zion, which is in the state of Missouri, therefore I declare unto you the warning which the Lord has commanded to declare unto this generation, remembering that the eyes of my Maker are upon me and that to him I am accountable for every word I say wishing nothing worse to my fellow-men than their eternal salvation; therefore, "Fear God, and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment is come." Repent ye, repent ye, and embrace the everlasting covenant, and flee to Zion, before the overflowing scourge overtake you, for there are those now living upon the earth whose eyes shall not be closed in death until they see all these things, which I have spoken, fulfilled. Remember these things; call upon the Lord while He is near, and seek Him while He may be found, is the exhortation of your unworthy servant. " - Note that this is not the same as Joseph's other famous second coming prophecy. That one also failed. Bruce R McConkie tried to extend it another century, which date still came and went.
Brigham Young claimed Adam was literally God the Father in the flesh. This is important as Bruce R McConkie called the doctrine one of the 7 deadly heresies. It's almost humorous that he uses the current temple ceremony to support his claim, as the old temple ceremony had this doctrine in the endowment session. More on this in section D.
As has been mentioned in previous parts, you also have diary entries of bribery, secret organizations, public and private double-speak, outright lies, hiding of information in deep vaults, and revisionist history re-written as often as possible.
One also can't forget that the LDS' main website does not, and likely will never, host any talks, speeches, quotes, or first presidency letters prior to 1970 unless referenced in an approved talk. In fact, most of the first presidency letters of the past are very difficult to find or access without official approval.
And finally, secret financial ledgers; secret rule books for mission presidents, stake presidents, and bishops; secret pay scales and benefits; secret corporate involvement; political lobbying; and quiet changes to doctrine and ceremony are common place.
It appears that the LDS church abhors the light of day for their financial and management transactions. I wouldn't be surprised if the actions given full disclosure was easier to build than the list of those done fully or partially in the dark.
(D) neither does he save anyone in ignorance
See the points in section B. These "theories" were taught at various times and then retracted at others. The Adam-God theory is a critical example. The doctrine was taught in the temple with the saving ordinances. Those going through the ceremonies at this time would have explicitly anointed as a [potential] God and Goddess saved in the Celestial Kingdom. They would be told that they were being taught essential doctrines needed for salvation. The 2nd anointing would have cemented this. Some of these same doctrines would later be called the theories of men [mingled with scripture], and later peoples would have been completely unaware of them (see also penalties and original laws of obedience). If Brigham was initially correct, then the church must now be in apostasy. If Brigham was wrong, and the religion is right, then he corrupted the ceremonies of God. If the religion is wrong, as I believe, than the Brighamites are wrong with it. Either the religious doctrine were wrong then, and thus damned the people of that time while creating a break in the chain of authority; and/or they're wrong now. Or, in contradiction to this claim you're told to obey a prophet who is wrong and it will be well with you, which means you are now saved in ignorance. (Section E can be found in the comments below)
You know that's genuinely the first time I've heard that! I'd argue the contrary. I've managed to help people trace their cultural and ethnic heritage to places they had no idea they originated from. Anyone who discovers they are linked to another place through blood would naturally be curious and start to learn more about that culture and history.
When you realise just how intermixed we are it's very hard to still see yourself as an isolated ethnic group.
There have been actually - It's quite an interesting subject when you start throwing in DNA to find out more about your own history. Red hair is a mutation that arose 20-40,000 years ago and although its not a "Celtic" gene it's almost exclusively European and prevalence is overwhelmingly highest in the Celtic nations.
Worth noting though is that there are significant minorities of redhaired people from the Basque Country in Spain, the Netherlands and Scandinavia. If you've got the Red headed gene then I'd say you've got a fair chance of having genetic origins in any one of these places.
If you've got Dutch ancestors I'd say it's entirely possible the red hair came from there - but you know how easy it is for migration over hundreds of years, so I wouldn't want to say its a 100%. The Dutch were quite the seafaring nation!
Great question! Without a doubt it's going to be easier. fifty years ago if you wanted to learn about your ancestors you had to visit the places they lived and rummage through town hall and church records, archives and libraries handling or viewing on microfiche thousands of documents in the hope you find something of note. With the rise of digitisation, you can sit at home wherever you live and automatically search through billions (without exaggeration) of records at the touch of a button and sift through only those matching locations and details that you require. The pace of this digitisation (one of the best way to preserve these delicate records for all time) is speeding up on a daily basis - huge projects are being entered into by volunteer transcribers/scanners or commercial companies that mean it just gets easier and easier to find things you would never know existed. A personal example would be that I found a full physical description of my greatx4 grandfather in a merchant navy record (5 foot 5, 32 inch chest, 28 inch waist, grey eyes, blonde hair and "slightly pockmarked") that a few years ago I'd never know existed (I just had his occupation as "ships captain" in a census). I found a woman's greatx3 uncle in a newspaper archive that we've just digitised, he disappeared with no explanation and it turns out he was kidnapped by a German secret society for breaking their rules (quite a scandal at the time that again we just wouldn't have even imagined without such rich contextual content automatically suggested to help us). I dread facebook being used as a museum...I don't know if I ever want my great grandchildren viewing my "look at this dog wearing clothes" statuses. It's possible that you could use facebook to go back a little way, but I think without getting into the world of pre-internet official documents you'll never be able to really fill in the story. I'm pragmatic - There are several large companies operating in this space, we have records nobody else has, our rivals have the same, you can get access to a fair few for free from some specialist sites (I'm here because I love Genealogy, not to give you a hard sell) - but no matter who has YOUR personal records, you can't beat that emotional response of finding something connecting you with someone you know is a part of you personally.
I'd applaud you first of all for being able to get that far! I'd say that it's possible to go further, particularly as some of the records in French archives are VERY well preserved (Montauban would be your best bet as it was the nexus of the Huguenot movement) but you'd want to employ someone who could both speak fluent French to understand the records fully and could physically visit the archives to go through them and photograph them for you (very few are digitised). I've come across a few organisations that have agents in the field so to speak - I'd get in touch with these guys (the national huguenot society) to see if they can point you to a reasonable one who could take you further Link to www.huguenot.netnation.com
It's impossible to deny that the LDS work is invaluable, thanks to them we've progressed so much faster than otherwise would be possible. They've been instrumental in transcribing some of the largest projects in the industry. I have used their site before and they've got a range of records that simply put, nobody else has.
I don't personally get to visit their centres as much as I'd like to as I'm based in London but I've heard nothing but good things about the advice they can offer and the free assistance they can give both from colleagues and customers. If there's one near you I very much recommend paying them a visit!
Start with your surviving family. Get a notepad and pen, talk to as many as you can to find out what they know about their own parents and grandparents/relatives - It's rare to not be able to get back 2-3 generations just with this information. Once you've got that you can start delving into records with the furthest back you've got, either using census information (you'll need to get back to 1940 in the US to start using those, 1911 in the UK/Ireland) or birth registrations that will document the parents of your last known ancestor to get things back a little further. Give me a little more specific background on your heritage and I'll happily give you a proper helping hand to start you off!
A lot of the time it was quite dependent on who was on duty at the time your ancestors got to their port of arrival, even something like an officer mishearing a name can result in a complete rename (though uncommon). Places like Ellis Island were frequently staffed with translators who would translate for the great multitudes of men and women who arrived without a word of English between them, smaller ports weren't so lucky. People frequently changed their names to fit in later on as they considered themselves more "American" - As daft as it sounds you'd do worse than to look at baby name sites, they tend to list the different national versions of each Anglicised christian name.
You can contact the Lithuanian national archives for a genealogical search but they are VERY overworked and currently have up to a three year delay for requests! You'd be better off maybe contacting a Lithuanian Genealogist who could go to the archives for you? I'd say you've got a great chance of getting back further though!
There ARE courses offered and professional certifications that you can take - The Association of Professional Genealogists for example or the Association of Genealogists and Researchers in Archives for example, not to mention there are a couple of universities that have started to offer recognised postgraduate courses. I've found most of the professional genealogists I've worked with so far though have fallen into this accidentally by doing their own family tree and getting so hooked that they start doing friends and relatives too, branching out from part time hobby to full time passion.
I wouldn't say that you need any kind of actual training other than a keen investigative streak and a love of puzzles! If you get accurate results then you're as good as anyone else!
I personally have a rather unique setup in that I don't have to charge, It's my job to make things easier for people to do it themselves through the website I help to run, which they can pay a subscription to for unlimited access to records or buy pay as you go credits to browse. I've seen both arrangements professionally though, I'm currently working with an Italian Genealogist who I'm paying an hourly fee for their time (as they have to physically go to a very small village in Italy that I could never get to to get hold of the records) but I know that takes a little trust. Quite a lot of genealogists either assess what someone wants and what information they have (some projects take weeks of solid work, others you can get together in an afternoon) to give a "job rate" or offer a sort of "package" rate where they guarantee to do the research for three or more generations, present all the research and documents in a folder and with a neat family tree at a particular cost.
There are sites with public family trees that if you can find a relative on you could easily link yourself to many thousands of people, the issue with that though is you are relying on other peoples research that may not be as thorough as your own. If you are happy with that then I'd say go ahead, but Ideally I'd still say asking your elders is the best way. Many sympathies for the loss too, I don't know what I'd do if that happened to me!
I deal with the past rather than the future - but here's my go at this question anyway - Sequencing is cheaper yes, and can be a great way of discovering genetic likelihood of developing certain forms of cancers, diseases and other things that can be avoided much more easily with changes to lifestyle and diet. I can't see that as a bad thing.
The darker area is in sequencing an unborn child, if you knew a child would be born disabled somehow then would you then be more likely to not give that child a chance at life? What if as now in some societies where boys are valued more than girls you learnt that it would have blue eyes instead of brown. Would you do the same thing? I'm all for sequencing that will aid long and healthy life, I'm dead against anything that could be used to potentially extinguish it in the name of personal preference or societal fashion of the time.
Where are you looking and how much do you know? Your greatest resource both in the US and UK is Census information. The detail on these censuses covers everyone who lives in a household, their birthplaces and relationships & then as they are every decade you can usually pick up the parents of children and keep running backwards (US censuses go back in detail to 1850 and before then still record heads and demographics till 1790, UK censuses are detailed and currently released go from 1841 to 1911). Give me a little more information and I'll gladly give you a nudge where to look and dig out maybe a few for you to get you started.
Ah Greeks, a lot of the time original Greek surnames were changed or shortened meaning locating older records in Greece is foften a big ask. Original surnames can give clues to lineage though, lots of the prefixes and suffixes indicate geographic areas within Greece. The suffix "akis" often designates Crete for example. Similarly, the suffix "ellis" often means a family from the island Lesbos, and "oudas" means from northern Greece (Macedonia). The prefix "Kondo" often designates an island (kondo is Greek for short").
Before 1925 all Greek records were recorded in the church - so you'd have to look there to get what you needed. I'd recommend enlisting the services of a professional who can visit the church and read their original records, it's difficult yes, but not impossible!
Americans for the most part are a little luckier, their publicly available censuses go up to 1940 which covers a great many parents and grandparents already - here in the UK thanks to privacy laws we only have up to 1911 released (and after 1921 it gets hard as 1931 was destroyed and 1941 was never taken thanks to the war). Passenger lists on ships leaving and arriving the states are a great resource and so it's usually quite easy to cover someones history from arrival in the US to the current day. Where you back to your ancestral home results are different - European wars have often caused the destruction of records (particularly in Ireland and Germany/the Soviet Union).
A lot of it though is down to chance. sometimes you'll find someone with an easy to find name who's from a region with very undamaged and complete records, others it can be an absolute nightmare (there are over 50,000 John smiths in the UK). That's half of the fun though!
In honesty at that point near nonexistent. If the name is rare enough you may be able to pick them up in parish records in the UK and hope it disappears at about the same time yours appears? Drop me a name and some further details and I'll try to take a look for you.
I'd say every website has its own unique record collections, if you've exhausted those ones then naturally I'd recommend findmypast.co.uk as the next biggest to take a look at (I do work there, but there are thing that may well help you out) - perhaps dig around a free search and see if there's anything that might fill in a gap you might have before taking the plunge and investing.
We have a relatively new world collection that you probably didn't see last time you were on there, that runs with the .com, .au and .ie sites, they cover British, Irish, American and Australian/NZ records - If you are looking at Irish records which I'm sure you know are quite difficult with the destruction of many of them we've got the most complete Griffiths' valuation (which is still growing) that should help a fair bit in addition to some amazing petty sessions and court records (I love the petty sessions, the detail in those and the prison records can be fantastic if you are lucky/unlucky enough to find your ancestors in them).
As I said I'd never recommend buying without trying first, so take advantage of the free trial and see if you can break through any brick walls before you leap in. Hope that helps you out.
It's never impossible - You'll actually find that the most full and accurate genealogy in history is Chinese, covering the descendants of Confucius (they were given a special status in Chinese civil service) There are more than 1.3 million living descendants and it's still incomplete! here's a link to a little more info - Link to www.chinadaily.com.cn
African history is unfortunate, records of families were passed orally and so were lost quite easily - that is a difficult one.
Almost every government in Europe had a vested interest in keeping track of their citizens for taxation and demographic purposes, together with other sources - so I'd say that again you'll find records everywhere, just some sets of records in different European places will be far more complete than others.
Digitisation is still relatively new but it's ongoing - Depending on where you are going back to you've always got national government archives, plus I'd try a site like Link to www.familysearch.org and see what they have.
Once you've done that then start to broaden out to more specialist sites or locations to get a a better picture.
For the most part yes, as all these records were vast mountains of paper it's just all too easy for a spark from a bomb or fire to send the whole lot in flames. A great amount were lost across Europe during the reformation too though, burnt along with the monasteries and churches that kept them in the 1500s.
The Irish records are a genuine tragedy. It's not just the civil war that caused that - whoever gave the order to pulp the 1881 and 1891 census for paper during the first world war should have been shot. That's just awful. Having spent a weekend in Dublin this month at the Back To Our Past family history show my heart goes out to how hard it can be with Irish ancestors.
Japanese village records going back to 709 have actually been digitised already, not to mention clan genealogy.
The Chinese take their family heritage seriously, so you'll quite often be lucky and find immaculate genealogies passed from generation to generation - Try this site and it might give you what you need Link to www.familysearch.org
There is, it's come on remarkably in recent years - I've not used any of the competing companies and I'm by no means an expert on that (it's still quite a new field) so I can't personally recommend you one to use, but you should be able to get a full breakdown of where your ancestors most likely came from fairly easily.
Google for Genetic Genealogy testing and compare a few, one of those should more than be perfect for what you need.
I have! You'd be surprised how often that happens you know. Everyone has two parents, four grandparents, multiplying by two for each generation meaning you have more ancestors than people who have ever existed on earth once we get to the 8/900s. Anyone who's line hasn't died out from that era you can be quite confident of being related to in some way. It's statistically a near certainty that if you are of European heritage you are a direct descendant of the emperor Charlemagne.
You can't brag about that though until you found the proof! I refer to one time a month or so ago at a family history show in Dublin, where I met a lady who started tracing her family tree a few weeks earlier out of curiosity and found she was a descendant of a "Clement Winstanley", a fairly well to do man from the late 1700s. Clement had ordered a personal genealogy in the past (This hobby has been going on for a long time!) which was located and a full pedigree listed going right the way back to King Edward III! That was quite the find for an unassuming lady from the Irish countryside!
The research into "Adam and Eve" is quite strange if you ever look into that when reading up. The notion that there actually was an Adam and Eve (though not in the religious depiction, they lived thousands of years apart) that we all share our lineage from many tens of thousands of years ago always blows my mind.
Infinitely! I'd say it's the singular biggest development in the industry since its inception. In the past (and I work with people who've been doing this their whole lives and remember this) you'd have to book days in archives that could be up to thousands of miles away and spend your whole day wearing white gloves delicately leafing through thousands of documents in the hope you might find something of use. now you can sit at home and search billions of records at the press of a button, examining only those that are likely matches and even being shown matches from sets of records you would never have even known to look at. The value of that just..can't be overestimated.
Family origins are well and good but quite often surnames derive from a profession (as the case of Smith or Cooper), an ancestor (like Anderson or Jones). You could quite reasonably accurately pinpoint a national origin based on surname, but I'd say the rest would be more speculative and wouldn't go into too much detail.
There are surnames that have derived independently in opposite sides of the country as corruptions of very different names (as literacy was often not great in the past spellings would change sometimes from generation to generation, I've found three different spellings of my surname in previous proven ancestors myself).
I do believe in evolution, though I try not to judge others on what they believe as much as possible - we've both got access to the same facts, if they choose to come to a totally different conclusion I guess that's their look out. I'd happily debate the issue with them over a drink though all night long.
Coat of arms were granted to a person and their descendants, so you'd have a "Pottle" coat possibly, but you'd then have to find some way to link yourself to those particular Pottle descendants as opposed to a different group of people with that surname. That will be A Pottle crest definitely, but if it's your ancestors you'd have to prove with research. Who knows..you might find someone even more worthy of a coat of arms!
I'd say it's one of the more common requests. People quite often want to find that link because we know so many stories about royals, the things they did, the lavish places they lived and how they went about their business.
It is powerful enough to find that link, but I've seen so much more moving stories from pit miners and travelling salesmen, people who didn't live in palaces but through the records we've managed to illuminate their whole lives and show the hardships they endured & the fantastic things they managed to still do.
You'll have different markers in your DNA that are unique to you - the chances of having an incorrect DNA match are 1 in millions, no matter how closely related you are. A modern DNA test can quite accurately tell you parentage of anyone if you've got proper samples from everyone concerned.
It is, I know a great deal of them - rates per hour vary wildly usually depending on the difficulty of a project and how much specialist knowledge is required. The best paid ones tend to be able to visit archives and get records that other people can't, coupled with skills in that area to know what to look for if the trail goes cold. You'd be surprised how many experts can be completely stumped for another to stroll over and instantly solve a mystery!
We are all pretty inbred when you go that far back! I wouldn't worry about that. There was no uniform look in the British Isles, though Red hair was far more common here than elsewhere definitely. Over 40% of Irish carry the gene for example.
Celts originated in North Africa and migrated through Iberia (you'll still find a significant minority of redheads in the Basque country) and Britanny before crossing to the British isles. You'll find a lot of genetic similarity between these peoples, together with a degree of closeness of language too!
Genealogy is an open field - Some people research only direct ancestors, some build a picture of an entire family, others build in the trees of people who married into a family to make the biggest interconnected picture they can!
Professionally that would be the descendants of the philosopher Confucius - Anyone related to Confucius was offered special status in Chinese civil service and so his genealogy has been recorded now since 500bc. There are over 1.3 million living descendants in the last published edition, going right up to his 79th generation.
Personally I know a few people who can get back to the 900s thanks to being related to nobility. To get past the dark ages is near impossible thanks to record destruction so I'd be very impressed if you could get much further. Some of these dark ages kings wrote their own genealogies to legitimise themselves that were less than honest..One I remember boasted being a descendant of not only Julius Caesar but the Viking god Odin. So make of that what you will.
