"Classic" No Longer Exists

They have finally closed the Classic, which to many of us was where we cut our teeth on doing Internet genealogy research.
I know there were many problems with the information that the Classical had, and some of it was downright incorrect – but one can say it was an admirable first attempt to put the information online.
I started my research on my ancestor Andrew Barclay on the site, and became a regular visitor, and user when I first went on the Internet in the mid-1990s.
