Several questions ( Tracing Elizabeth Watson of Winchelsea, Sussex after 1815?, How do I verify 2 William Watsons are the same person?, What convict records for Australia exist?, Where do I find records for artist competitions from the 1880s?, and What does "Effects under" refer to on proving a will?) have been posted by one member in a relatively short time. Some have family names in common, others appear independent.
Begin work on any one and you will quickly take a turn around the labyrinth and encounter one (and then more) of the others. My interpretation is that each questions requires, and provide context for, each of the others.
I stopped posting responses when it became clear that my frustration was beginning to show through what I was writing. I do not want to be unfair to the questioner who has obviously tried to present what appear to be manageable chunks.
What advice do (or should) we offer on how to deal with this situation? How ought a question provide the whole picture of the background and then define a single question within it?
