  2. Red face Glad I found this site!

    Good day everyone! I am first born in the U.S. from my British born father and love working on genealogy as did my uncle (father's brother) and his son, my cousin. I have run into a snag with a great grandfather from Italy that came to Sussex Eng in the 1820's and anglicized his name. If I...

  4. First time posting

    I've been researching my Irish family history, some of whom lived in Liverpool before emigrating to Canada, and have had no luck tracing an aunt who died when she was three - in Liverpool. I hope to meet some interesting people here, and get to know a bit about Liverpool itself.

    Hi, my name is Ronald Thomas. I was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, USA in 1950. Unfortunately, for me I realized too late in life how important it is to know one's family history. My Grandmother Annie Rapley was born 14 November 1894 (one of 11 children) and in 1920 supposedly lived in...
