  1. Hello all

    Hello, my name is Julie and I have been researching my family tree for around 9 yrs. I have uncovered a couple of unexpected things that I was unaware of in my ancestry, this is what I enjoy about it as you just don't know what you may find out.

  17. Thanks

    I came across this site a few days ago when seeking info about my Gittins relatives from Cradley, Herefordshire. I noticed someone posting from Stourbridge, close enough to whet my interest. I'm looking forward to many interesting conversations. Thank you for your service to genealogists.
