  6. Just joined

    Hi I have just found and joined this today: I only hope I don't spend all my time on it as it's so easy to get lost in other peoples' stories and hunts. I haven't found it very easy to use so far ...:no: but hope it will all get clearer as I go on.

    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...

  12. 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.

    Hello to all! I am a seasoned genealogist, although most of my work has been in the United States (mostly the southern states).

  17. Second Generation American

    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...
