  5. 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...
