  19. Thumbs up Hi. Family history research is so addictive.

    Hello everyone I've been researching my ancestors since 2001. My mother and i go to our local Family History which is conveniently in the same building where i work for the council. With this hobby you tend to get as many questions as you do answers - but that is what i love about it :biggrin5:
