Hello from Guy

Hello, though I am new to this forum I am not new to forums and mailing lists in general.

I became interested in family history as an infant when my mum gave me a book written by my grandfather detailing the GUY family history.
My early research involved visiting archives, record offices and churches etc. looking at original paper (parchment & vellum) records. Gradually these were replaced by microfilm and microfiche copies which though interesting did not carry the same "wow" factor as a document handled by an ancestor 300 years previously.
