  1. Researching across the pond

    So, don't ask me how it happened, but I am back researching my English roots. Not the ones who have been in the states for centuries, those who are my immigrant ancestors, arriving between 1835 and 1884. Now, let me tell you, it is without a doubt one of the most difficult and confusing things I have researched. England is a whole different pickle, the setup of parishes and shires and districts, in most cases leaves my head reeling. Add to that the difficulty in actually obtaining records , well, ...

  3. Oh go on then...

    Anyone who knows me in person knows that I avoid social networks and blogs. It's not because I'm antisocial but because I know that the majority of people simply aren't interested in genealogy. Which is pretty much all I talk about these days! :cool:

  4. Learning the Ropes

    I am passionate about genealogy. Some may say addicted. I don't mind, I just continue to do my own thing, and ignore the comments, raised eyebrows, and total lack of interest by my friends and families. They just don't know what they are missing.

  5. Blogging on B-G is good!

    I really wasn't sure about this new-fangled look to our beloved Brit-Gen. I had some difficulty getting in here because of the upgrade and it was quite a shock when I did arrive and discovered that it was so, so......pale. Now I am aclimatising or as my lovely American soul sister says aclimating and as I find that some things haven't changed while other things are now a paler blue I am beginning to like this here new upgrade.

    I love to blog, I have several blogs for different hobbies ...
