  3. Sticky Thread Sticky: General Family History

    Hello folks. This is just a reminder that this forum exists. As well as general questions on family and local history; it's as good a board to use as any if you've 'lost' someone, somewhere and want to begin tracking them. I'm sure that you know the sort of thing I mean, an ancestor was...

  7. Another stupid question from moi.

    When a couple divorce, the daughter's relationship to her parents doesn't change - but how about her ex-husband? Is he still a son-in-law, ex son-in-law or just a 'mistake their daughter made"? Just curious. Colin

  18. How to contact a living cousin

    I have found living descendants of a family I've been working on for the past year. Does anyone have suggestions on how to make contact with living cousins? Many people are just not interested in the past. I would like to send them a couple of old pictures.
