Forum: General Family History Queries

Although it is best to use specific forums for various topics, this one is for general topics that don't otherwise have a home.

  1. Sticky Thread Sticky: Important message for all forum members

    People who research family history are very generous with their time and help, especially towards those new to research. This is great because it shows what a friendly bunch we all are. However, there are certain things which are not allowed and this includes breaching copyright or licence - At...

  3. 'Those' helpful people

    To my mind, this single greatest thing about this forum is the attitude so many members have; if they can help, the will, and often with incredible speed. As well as being amazed by the generosity and willingness to help people they don't really know, on a more practical point, I wonder how they...
