  3. Finally I feel I'm getting somewhere

    After 20 years of frustration I finally feel that I am getting somewhere with building the family history. Living in New Zealand makes it hard trying to research the other side of the world.

  4. Hi, all. Glad to be a member.

    I've been working at my family tree, mostly on Ancestry, for eighteen months or so and have enjoyed it greatly. I've made exciting discoveries and experienced the usual frustrations. I'm hoping my time here might indeed knock a hole through a few 'brick walls'!

  5. Kay from South Australia

    Hi, I've been chasing relatives in Staffordshire, England for a few years now. My Australian rellies are pretty famous, so I don't need to chase them, but the English ones more than make up for that! They have such common names, I could kick them!:willy_nilly:

  12. Hi everybody!

    We've been 'playing' family history now for thirty years and, I suppose like everyone, we'd had some branches that have grown really easily and others which won't budge! The weather here in the UK has just been sweltering (by UK standards though) and it's been good to go into a cool room and do...

    I have been researching my family on and off for over 10 years. In the beginning I was quite dependent on my parents for researching parish records and grave yards as they live in the main area of research and I don't and there was not much information on line. However over the last couple of...
