Hello from a new member

My name is Kay, and I think it is great to find out about families. 2 years ago, I knew nothing, it was if I came from Mars, then my cousin did the paternal side of the family, and what I found out blew my mind. It explains, my hair colouring etc. I come from the Vikings, and to me that is just WOW.
My maternal side, well that took me 12 months of looking somewhere else, until I decided to bite the bullet and send away for the marriage certificate. Again, Wow. I have all this family, and I would say there are a lot out there, that are not all that friendly, but the few who are, are just very helpful, and don't mind helping.

Living in Australia, we are a bit handicapped towards finding out the proper info, and sometimes it has cost a lot of money to find something, then it turns out to be wrong. The fun of Genealogy I suppose. There are times when I want to pull my hair out, or put my foot thru the screen, but then something comes up and all is right with the world.
