  1. Hi Everybody

    I have been doing genealogical research since the mid-eighties, when microfiches were cutting edge technology and you printed stuff out on a daisy wheel printer, lol, but I dip in and out and consider myself intermediate at best; mostly I feel like a rank beginner! I'm hoping people who are less...

  7. FLORENCE TREASA FRAY

    Hi all My research is essentially based on one person, FLORENCE TREASA FRAY. Florence was my grandmother; about 2 years ago my mother said she would like to find out what had happened to her mother (Florence), I have still not found her death in all that time, the rest is all genealogy.

    Hi everyone, I started my family search originally for a war hero, 2 years ago, no one warned me how addictive or frustrating this can be!! Have managed to get as far back as 1820's but am a bit stuck, hoping that the collective brain can help break down my brick wall. Jo x
