    In the UK!!

    Hey All, We are fast running out of days on our jaunt here in the UK. Thanks to some of you who were so helpful in tracing my mother's family back to Cirencester I had the most substantial breakthrough ever. We had only a couple of hours to stop off and so headed straight for the parish church...

    plague village

    This one is mainly for you DW I think. I just finished listening to an audiobook based on the true story of a plague village in the Peaks. They named it at the end but as I was listening and not reading I can only guess at the spelling. Any ideas?

    organizing notes

    Hi All, I am realising that these piles of bits of note paper could be better organized on the computer somehow if for no other reason than to have everything in the same room and transportable with laptop. I am up for any and all advice on how to best go about this. There are so many software...

    Christening/baptism records London

    I have a chance to go to London in person. Where is the best place to go to look for baptism/christening records. Going through old maps I think I figured out which could be the church my mother used to talk about. I even contacted the present rector and confirmed what I feared. It was bombed to...

    Hello there

    My first time on a site like this. I started this hunt because I knew none of my mother's family and felt that someone should be told that she passed on. Now it has become a hunt for where they all went. Also some of my birth father's nieces found me, I didn't even know that 4 of them existed...
