Genealogical Reforecast?

I wanted to make a comment about the September 2007 issue's "Record Highs (and Lows)." I certainly agree with the Storms Ahead section in regards to Russian and Polish research, as I have both. But I take issue with English records being No. 1 in the Sunny Outlook section. Many records are available if you have ancestors in some parishes in England — I have done research in Wales and Cornwall. But there isn't enough identifying information available on the records themselves. With so many common names, the information just isn't enough to be sure a record pertains to your family.
