Over 20 years ago, I was talking to an acquaintance who regularly got my train to work, saying I didn't know anything about my maternal great grandfather David Brown. She used to be the a genealogist at the LDS in Christchurch NZ and showed me how to organise my paperwork, look at microfiche, and how to use the IGI. I made the big mistake (we all seem to) in that I opted for the first David Brown I found. Took me a year of searching on the wrong one. I had more luck with my Dad's side (Burn) and found 3 generations in a couple of hours! After looking at the family bible we brought over from UK, I was absolutely hooked! Had the disease ever since, to the point I'm now the Secretary of a FH Group and helping others to research! Absolutely LOVE looking for dead people !
