Hello Karen,
welcome to the UKFH. I am reasonably new myself but have managed to connect to living relatives because of the group.
Amazing.
I wish you much reward for your endeavours.

Hello,

I'm David and I'm retired.

On retirement I moved to what is supposed to be a warmer clime - the south of France. Once the move was completed I had ample time to take up the family history. In truth, I had been dabbling, but not too seriously, before retirement. I have been amazed at the amount of material I have uncovered in the interim. It has taken a lot of typing to get it into even prliminary shape. And it keeps growing and adjusting as more comes to light.

I have always been interested in choral music and have now enough time to do some composition as well as direct one of the local choirs.

There are lots of opportunities for indulging in photography, one of my hobbies. Equally, reading on a warm and sunny afternoon with a glasss of vin rouge in hand is very pleasant.. not that it's warm enough for that right now. But I can dream, no?:)

Apart from the King (Dorchester on Thames) and Monks (Dublin) families, I am also looking into some of the lateral lines: Sir Patrick Shortall and the Simpsons, both of Dublin.

I suppose that enough of an introduction for the moment.

All that remains is to say hello to all and assure you that I hope to get to know you in due course.

David.

Hello and a warm welcome to FHUK:)
Thank you all for the warm welcome to FHUK.

I imagine that for the present I will be feeling my way around the site and earning how to handle it. I'm not the world's greatest expert when it comes to computers. I reckon I am two generations too old... So Sterico, you may be sure I will be asking for help:confused:, probably sooner rather than later.

Apologies for getting back a little later than I would have wished. I was celebrating a family event.

Best wishes to all for 2011!

David.

Hello all,

My name is Rupert Brooks, I live in Tokyo, married to a Japanese, 2 sons.

Formerly (and currently) a Devonian, though raised all round southern England.

Spare time is spent doing nature stuff, snowboarding, riding my motorbike, stargazing, aikido, making cider, gardening, playing with the family.

Trying to trace my deceased father`s natural parents. I know my mother`s history in depth, but as my father was adopted I know nothing of his side of the family.

Thanks for having me!

hello,
I've been researching my family history on and off since i had to do a project at college. My grandmothers personal memories helped with some of my initial enquiries putting me in the right direction but also one or two goose chases!
I've heard some interesting stories along the way(e.g. emigrating to Australia and becoming mayor, greyhound racing blacksmiths, etc) , and want to add to these as thats what makes the search fun, and those lucky breakthroughs that suddenly take you to the next generation.

Good luck with your research.

Hello Everyone,

My name is Kathryn but called Katy, live in Essex and i am retired (and loving it lol). Love reading, favourite author's at the moment are....J.D.Robb, Janet Evanovich and Clive Cussler.
Have not done to bad on one side of the family, although the constant naming of James in every generation is driving me nuts :biggrin: and where i can get a street or road that they lived in and do a google map search is brilliant, it make's you feel a great deal closer to them.
I am sure i will be making good use of this forum in the future.
Happy hunting everybody and good luck with your search's.

Katy
