  1. 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...

  3. 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'....

  4. Hello everyone.

    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.

  5. 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...

  7. Hello,

    Got interested in Family Tree about 1978, asked grand parents a lot of stuff which turned out to be very helpful. Started getting certs and census returns in 1992. Did a lot of footwork before they went online. It was great looking through the original books, but they were very heavy and you could...

  10. Smile Hello everyone!

    Hi I have been researching my family tree on and off for the past 5 years and have traced my ancestors all the way back to the 12th Century. I had a break of just over 18 months inbetween then and now but I have since retired and have really got back into it again. They say it's good to keep your...

    A cordial hello to All, I am Timothy Dunford, and I reside in SE Louisiana, just close enough to New Orleans to go out for dinner. This area of the US isn't related to my roots, which, from my research turns out to be Colonial Virginia. The earliest ancestor that I've found down, 9 generations...
