  8. Time for another big thank you to everyone that has ever contributed to the Germany All Eras: Signature Database over the last 7 years, from established members to the very latest newcomers. This weekend we hit the incredible figure of 900 individual names entered (some of whom have multiple examples of their signatures in their entry) which proves just how generous the members are in providing the time and effort to add what they have. Every single addition has been a positive benefit both to the database and the forum and long may it continue. Once again, thank you one and all. Signature Database Index
