    David Aspinall`s father?

    Joyce, you are marvellous and my thanks again for your help. I had got to the stage where I was beginning to doubt everything I have found.. Thanks to someone else saying keep a record of all your sources of info, I was able to check it all back and I`m sure I`ve sorted it all. It takes some...

    David Aspinall`s father?

    Thanks Joyce. If Ralph was born in Scotland, that would be why I couldn`t find him.:D Looks like a bit of a shotgun wedding as well. I would love to have any info you have, I was beginning to doubt my sanity! Any hints on where I would look for a Scottish Birth for free would be much...

Things eaten so far-one cheese and tomato sandwich, four slices of toast (two with jam, raspberry, since you ask) one orange and two packets of crisps. Ironing done-nil. Washing up done-nil.

    Eeeaaargh!!!!

    It`s funny how us addicts like to make sure that we aren`t alone. I am waiting for birth certs to come from the UK and it`s driving me mad. Not only did I have to wait for the GRO to send out certs to my sister in law, then I had to wait for her to post them to me and then wait the 5 days for...

    Greetings from another new member

    Hello Pam and welcome. If I remember rightly, I used to have lots of free time before I started looking into my family tree. ( My family say "are you treeing again?") Hope you have lots of fun.

    Norvill

    It` amazing how one thing leads to another. I am still looking for the `Norvill` link and was having another look at the census returns when I noticed that when my GG Grandad was born there was a family called Errington living in the same street and lo and behold, my GG Grandad was called Edward...

    Norvill

    Hi to all. Can anybody tell me if they have heard of the name Norvill either as a surname or forename? It was my Grandad`s middle name, I assume he was named after someone, it wasn`t his Mother`s maiden name, so have you heard of it?

    A bit more experienced now!

    Well, here I am in the big kids forum. Left the `Newbie, Introduce Yourself` thread behind with a bit of trepidation. Where to start? I`m amazed how much I have found out just today with the help of my lovely Mothers` filing system and my Grandmothers` hoarding of everything. I am a bit stuck...

    Hello to you all

    My Mother has come up trumps. She has my Grandparents` Birth Certs and I think maybe even something about my Great Grandad, I think it might be his death cert. I remember him from when I was a child so that would be the 70s. Speaking to Mother on phone tomorrow night, and can`t wait to get...
