  1. I am new to the forum.

    I have been pursuing my family history for some years on and off. At present I have hit a 'brickwall' all round. My particular problem is that my 4xGrandfather was born in St.Vincent, West Indies and I have no other lead. He was in the Royal Navy but all I have from records is the ships...

  2. Red face Hello Everyone!

    I知 excited to join this group and hope to break the wall regarding my genealogy research. My late father was adopted (California born in 1928) and I had my DNA done which provided information as to who were his biological parents. His paternal side is from one of the ancient planters of Virginia...

  9. First tentative steps

    Hello everyone. I seem to have been researching for ever although it's only about 16 years in fact. Various family legends have been disproved along the way, which is a shame, especially the one about being decended from Captain Cook and I've not found any Earls or murderers lurking in the mists,...

  12. Hello to all from Chris in Cambridgeshire

    Hi there, this is the first time I have ever posted anything; so forums and blogs are all new. I have only just started to try and trace my family and this has been rather problematic.
