Hello from S E Asia !

- as a Brit,living out here for 10+ years,my only tools are the internet and an insatiable curiosity.

I am researching all areas of my family,but stuck on the Walters connx,having only first and surname,and place of work,occupation,approx age.
Finding this all very interesting,and met some new friends,who have questions in my part of the world,so hoping to be of use to others as I search.

Wishing good luck to all,may you find what you seek !
 
HI! My name is Pam Bauer and I am fom Chester, marrried to an American (haven't started researching THAT angle yet!). I have one daughter who lives in London and I am recently retired and therefore new to this game of researching the family tree.

I am not even sure how to use this website! I am at the moment trying to trace back my father's tree and have got stuck somewhere in Suffolk in the eraly 1800s. I do know that my great great grandfather was a cordwainer (shoemaker) and left Suffolk somewhere between 1851 and 1861. He travelled north and ended up in Rossington, Doncaster, Yorkshire where he was taken in by a family and met and married my great great grandmother. His name was Samuel Roper and her name Martha Kitchen. I know all the family from that time to date but need more information on the family in Suffolk.

Samuel's father was a labourer, as stated on Sam's marriage licence, and his name was John and he was from the Lakenheath area. Sam was born in Harleston, Suffolk and was last mentioned boarding with a family in Haughley, Suffolk on the 1851 census. I am looking for any information about John Roper, who he married and who his children were. There are several Johns from that area in the 17-1800s but I cannot identify one in particular as linked to a son called Samuel.
:(
Can any one help at all. Are they your ancestors too?

Hi New girl in town here. Just started researching my family and my friend Denise's family. Hope someone here can help us. We live in Edinburgh, but are looking for family all over the UK. Denise is mainly looking for Wrights in North Wales and Chapmans in London and I am mainly looking for Gibsons in Inverkeithing, Fife and Navratils in Vienna, Austria. Will be posting on the Welsh roots forum, but basically we are stuck on a John Wright of Ruabon, Denbighshire born circa 1798. Anyone out there who can help ?

I have many brickwalls, particularly my William and Eliza Carey/Cary family, from England, b 1817C maybe originally Ireland.

My Irish family of Margaret Theresa Ryan from Cashel Ireland born C1838.

I have had success with contacts for my Gardner family of Middlesex England, and Mcbain family Scotland.

Still searching for my Guy, Lawrence, Carey/Carey, Perry ( occupation glovers ) Bolton and Jones families all England, Watson and Fraser/Frazer, McBain & Robertson families, Scotland
and Ryan and Piggott family Ireland

I would welcome any assistance.
 
Hi:2fun:
My name is Jenny...I married, retired, and close to 61 years old. We have two grown children, and two grandchildren.
We live in northern Canada at the moment, but we are planning to move to a milder climate nearer to the grandchildren now that we no longer need to stay in the frozen north to work.
My paternal grandparents were from the UK and my family (parents and two brothers) lived there for several years (London and Leeds, Yorkshire). One brother lives in South Africa and my other brother - whom I am looking for - lives in the UK last time I heard from him. My grandparents retired to Devon in the 60's, and lived long, happy lives, celebrating over 60 years of marriage (to each other!). My father and his two brothers were born in the UK, and each was in a different branch of the armed forces during WW2
I also spent several years living in South Africa and Zambia (as a teenager) and in Liberia as an adult with my husband and children.
That's it! Now you know everything!
 
Hi everyone I am Karen, live in Perth West Australia. I was born in Salford Manchester and we emigrated here 1969 and unfortunately I have never been back. I am divorced and have 2 sons and 2 grandchildren aged 6 and 3. I have always had an interest in family history but only started research about 14 months ago. I have managed to go back 8 generations in some lines but get stuck on others. Very frustrating when you hit blocks and have no idea how to go around them! I AM learning though from gracious people who have replied to me through tree matches. Currently stuck with my gg grandma Elizabeth Cobley born Rugby Warwickshire between 1844 and 1848 (her age keeps changing on census reports!). My main problem is I am all the way over here so can't just walk into a research centre. i will persevere, this is very interesting and fun (as well as time consuming!)I am having a ball doing this. One day I will get over there again but I think I need a good 6 months to look at documents because my family have roots in Ireland too.
Cheers from Oz

Hi everyone I am Karen, live in Perth West Australia. ... My main problem is I am all the way over here so can't just walk into a research centre.

welcome Hi Karen - have you joined your local family history society? I think you'd find them very helpful and useful. The person that has collected the most research for my husband's family roots (in Essex) is Australian and has done nearly all her reasearch from there - and also my local 'Online Parish Clerk', for Alcester (in Warwickshire), lives in New Zealand! Don't be put off by the distance - you'll find a lot of copied archival information is available for you over there.

For your curent brick wall, try this Warwickshire researchers website and scroll down to Rugby: http://www.hunimex.com/warwick/opc/opc.html#R

I hope this helps & wish you all the best with your research.

Kind regards - Joy
