Born in Devon, living in South Cheshire
Hello, I'm seeking any information on Rita Mary Myhill, (Rita Mantle) born Bromsgrove, Worcestershire in 1927, wed William Mantle there in 1949, and died in Birmingham in 1996.
Hi All, I just joined from Sydney, Australia. I was googling for some information on my in-laws side of the family and this website came through on the lists.
First time I've seen it. Happy to be here, and maybe find some others researching the same families as me. My ancestors come from England, Scotland and Ireland, as far as I know but they could be from other places as well!! Thanks for letting me join.
Hi all, thank you for adding me. I'm new to the site and new to ancestry research too. I would be very interested to know whether there has been any simple how-to guide written on how to navigate the ancestry sites, I seem to get only so far then no further...for instance how far back would birth certificates go? Or are there other options I should look at? Many thanks :-)
