  2. Thumbs up Met another cousin!

    Isn't this genealogy stuff fun? :smile5: This past weekend I have had a 2nd cousin from my Dad's paternal side visiting me. She drove up from New York State on Friday and between genealogy and sight-seeing we have had a fantastic time. We have a lot of similarities although our Thompson genes...

  3. Registering a birth in UK

    My husband & I were discussing the process of registering a birth in UK* - I've never had children & he can't remember registering his son's birth 40 years ago. When registering a birth what evidence do you have that a birth actually took place? Does the registrar require paperwork from...

  4. Hi to all after a long long time

    Just wanted to say hi to all my friends at Brit Gen - I have been so busy, but wanted to update you on a success story (not mine). My mom's cousin gave a baby up for adoption a few decades back who ended up living in Illinois (I am in Massachusetts) and she decided to look for her family. She...

  5. Fave aspect of finding ancestors?

    What do you find compelling about ancestors? Mine is the places they came from and lived. I am very attached to my London lines whose ancestors before them came from places from Norfolk to Dorset. I love finding ancestors who lived far away from where they were born and such. I also like names but...

  6. St Mary's Church Market Place Stockport

    Have learnt this evening that the pews are being reoved possibly in the next week, photographs of the church as it is at present are being taken. Stackable chairs will replace the pews. Evidently the upkeep of the Church is becoming prohibitive, the idea being that the removal of the pews...

  7. 30 Year Rule

    I am glad to see the thirty year rule is to be reduced to a twenty year rule. Public records to be released after twenty years instead of thirty years. This means more records will be released more quickly than before. The downside is the lead in period to accomplish the twenty year rule,...

    Having traced as much of my father's direct line as I can (though a few details remain to be found) I find myself embarking on tracing all the side shoots. This seems to be born out of a) boredom b) curiosity concerning what happened to all those lines that I used to get confused with my main line...

  15. I'm soooo impatient

    Sometimes waiting for a reply from someone can seem like hours when in reality it is only a couple of minuets. We could do with a 'nudge' button on here like they have on 'windows messenger' you click it and it makes their screen wobble. Not good if you're feeling a bit queezy though. ...

  19. Does anyone recognise this man?

    This picture of him is on the wall of the Penny Black public house in Bicester and is next to portraits of Oliver Cromwell and Charles I. However, his clothing is of a far later date than the civil war and I estimate that he was from the late 1800s. Both my friend and myself tried to think of...

  20. Genelogical Weirdness

    I seem to have a lot of "coincidental" things happen to me but this one really freaked me out - a few days ago I was mindlessly wasting time scrolling through the Feay/Fay name on the census for England (always hopeful that something will pop out and solve my Feay puzzle that is twenty years old)...
