    I have just found this website and am looking forward to perhaps sharing some stories. I have been researching my family history for some time now, and at the present time I am concentrating on the only roots I have so far found which stretch out from the east coast of Scotland, all the way to the...

  6. Talking Hi everyone

    Reaching out - I have been researching my family (on & off) for over 20 years, finding little pieces of information every so often, but finding more brickwalls than anything else. I originate from Northern Ireland myself, and I believe my family has lived there for the past 200 years, or so. Before...

    I am retired and live in Lymington in Hampshire, UK. I have been researching my family and military history for 25 years. I have been quite successful though still hit brick walls! I still find it very interesting and continue to search regularly.

  14. Cool Checking in to the Brit-Gen board

    Hi all, I've been slowly piecing the family history together particularly the period before the family moved to the states in the 1850s. I think I have a pretty solid base back to the late 1590s. Looking forward to seeing if I can push back from there. lgilham

  15. Post Greetings

    I have been looking for my family for a number of years and have built up a family tree with some 2,000 people. The funny thing is that I started with my father and believe it or not have got no further back than his father and mother! He was Scottish, a Captain in the British India Line and during...

  17. Post HI from somewhere in Britain

    I'm not being cagey. It's just that I'm touring Britain in a motorhome taking photographs (when the enthusiasm flows) and visiting places connected with family history, mainly Cleobury Mortimer, Shropshire and Wigan, Lancashire areas. I have trees on Anc***** 'Boraston/Tyler' and 'Wilson/Berry'....

    I am MinnieMac from Australia. A small place called Cooktown is my home and Captain Cook and crew were the first tourists. I have been researching my families for many years.

  19. Smile Hi there

    I have been researching my ancestors for longer than I dare to admit to, and to date have found no one as far back as the 16th century on many trees outside England. My tree spans Warwickshire, Leicestershire, Staffordshire, Yorkshire and Essex. I have found no illustrious forebears, though many...
