In Ireland, but born Bucks.
From
England
Well folks, I will be on my way back to blighty on the 27th June for 17 days. Got a really cheap flight and accommodation. My B&B is being supplied by my sister, god bless her.
This should work out cheaper than ordering all the BMD certs.
So while I'm over, I will hopefully get to study a heap of parish records for my paternal rellies.
It should be relatively easy, as 99% of them lived and worked in the same area. The only problem that I can see is, me. Will I be able to make sense of it all. I hope that the people at the library will be patient with me.

I think that I'll have to print, copy and photograph everything that they will allow.
So hopefully by this time in 4 weeks, I'll be back here with my whole paternal side sorted. AS IF !!!!:rolleyes:

Can't wait to get stuck in.:2fun:

Steve.:)
 
The best of luck with your research. I am sure that you will come back with lots of rellies that you did not know about.

Hi Steve

Have you found any ancestors who were born in Ireland at all? As you now live there it would be as if that line was going full circle.

None yet Ben, but I'm sure there are. I get the feeling that I've been in Ireland before, it was almost like coming home if you get what I mean.

As I have the name of Moore in my tree(don't go there) and Williams, who I think maybe Welsh. It makes me a bit of a mongrel.

Well people, I will be off 'air' for a couple of weeks. Going 'home' will be a bit strange.
As well as seeing my live rellies, will be trawling the libraries, churchyards, towns and villages.
My elder brother is lending me his camcorder, so I will be doing a mini movie of most of the places I visit, if not all of them.
This will be on sale to fund my family research.:2fun: Just think "Blair Witch Project". You get my drift.
I will also be taking still pics. So you may see some on here.

Will be spending most of my time at the Centre for Buckinghamshire Studies (posh name for the council offices) in Aylesbury, Bucks.
I think by the time I leave there, we will all be on first name terms and I'll be invited to weddings and christenings, and become a god parent several times over.
I wonder if they do overnight accommodation.:biggrin:

I hope I get what I need, not being a seasoned researcher like most of you guys, i would hate to think I will miss something out.
I think I will have to copy/print/photograph and write everything down, as I do not have a good memory.
Spare reading glasses WILL be packed, knowing my track record.:rolleyes:

Obviously I will be lingering on here until I fly out tomorrow, just in case you good people have any more suggestions(clean ones please).:biggrin: >:D :rolleyes:

Steve.:) :) :kissu:

Never past getting into mischief Gibbo, thrive on it sometimes.:biggrin: :biggrin:
I'll have to record it warts and all. As I get older I'm sure I'll try and deny it.:)

In 200yrs time, the Headlines will read "Lost looney tapes discovered".
Sub heading. "Found under 4 tons of family history research".

Hi Steve
I hope that you have a wonderful and fulfilling time on your travels
I have always used a hardback spiral notebook I now have about six of them, but I can always refer back to them. Even when I am not sure if the people are relevant I write them down.
Have a good time

Spiral back notebooks. Yes, I usually use the gummy ones. Will take up your suggestion.
Thanks Maddie.

I will gladly have some F+C for you Sterrico, I even know of a 'plaice' where they will use newspaper to wrap them.
The beer might have to wait, I'm bad enough without it. BUT, then again I might improve with it.:D :rolleyes:

Hi Folks, back in the fold.
Had a great time in England. Knocked down a few walls, and unraveled a few mysteries, and reached a few conclusions.

Hi Janice, great to 'see' you here. Will send a private message.

Had some great fish and chips.:)
