Hello! My name is Genevieve.
I am a new member of FHUK forums. This is the first time I have done the 'forum' thing, and am just finding my way around.

I am originally from Cheltenham, but now live in Sheffield with my Yorkshire husband. I have 2 adult kids age 22 and 25.
I have been interested in family history since I was a child as my mum was into it, and have been having a go at it, albeit on and off for years. This by no means says that I am any kind of expert though, and I am hoping to get some useful tips and pointers from all the 'experts' using this site.

Looking forward to chatting with you.
Genevieve

I am also from Cheltenham actually Bishops Cleeve, now live in Walton Cardiff just outside Tewkesbury. I also have two children 13 and 11. Both my parents are no longer with us. I have my mother's side of the family all recorded but on my father's side it is a bit vague. I knew my grandmother and her brother but that is it. So hopefully this site will bring me closer to finding some relatives...

Re:new here, my name is Sue

Hi my name is Sue, I am new to this site, but not new to searching for family links. I am researching mainly Gardner, Gilbert, Denyer and Cornford, just hope someone can help with some brick walls.

Hello

Just joined the site in order to find out a bit more of our family history - obviously!
Not sure whether anyone out there will be able to help - We've come to a dead end trying to research early history as it seems as though every other person in Leicestershire is named Baines!

I am learning to play the piano, at my advanced age! Recently joined a reading group for the first time and loving it. Also enjoying another recent purchase - Wii fit!

Greetings all, Having just joined this site, as requested, a few details of myself:-
Born and brought up in the Rhondda Valley at the end of WWII, joined the Forces and travelled quite a bit, including some years in the Middle East working on construction sites.
Now retired and a carer for my disabled wife, and really trying to find out as much of our ancestors as possible, because, as many know, there was little conversation about such matters when we were kids.

Take care one and all.

Hi All,
I joined this site in the hope of finding 'new tricks' to finding those difficult members of the family. Just the last few to find, found most back to 1840's but still have the awkward ones.
Why do they just change name married status or area with no certificates just clues. Then there the spelling changes, never sure if its them or a miss heard name on the part of the enumerator.
I know these things happen from my studying of old maps in which the name is changed over time due to the OS plotter being told the wrong spelling.
Not happy with the 33% price hike in certificate charges, I should have got the ones I want last year!
The bit I like about family history is the searching part and the problems but a times it just gets too much, I give up for a while so that the headache can pass or I get another idea to try.

Nice to be here Peter

Hello,
My name is Jodie and i live in Sydney Australia.
I'm married with 3 children aged 20,16 & 14.I started doing my
family tree about 3 years and now have contact with 2 of my
husbands cousins(we never knew about) in England.
I would love to find out more about my mothers family,as we
don't know too much about them,see how i go.
That'll be all for now
Cheers Jodie
 
Hello, I have been registered for a little while and have not made an introduction here. I have been corresponding with a member who is
researching part of the same family tree as my husband's and it has been
quite fascinating what we have both learnt so far. I do find it amazing that
we are on different continents and both researching the same family tree
and able to correspond and check notes on this site.
I am researching the Peacock family of Gloucestershire, UK and also
Williamson of Co.Durham, Weymes of Co.Durham, Parker of Co.Durham/Northumberland, the Bath family of Stapleton, Bristol/Gloucestershire, also the Cryer family of Bristol/Gloucestershire
so would be happy to hear from anyone also researching any of those
families.
Regards
Mopea
