Just Saying Hello.

Hello, everyone, I joined the site yesterday and thought that I would introduce myself. I am a wife/mother/grandmother but the only one in the family really interested in family research and spend far too much time on the computer. However, as I am no Spring chicken, my excuse is that I have so much to do and so little time!! My original name interests were Williams, Smith and Davies from England and Wales - no problem there, then. The name interest has, of course, expanded and has gone off onto all sorts of tangents. I also talk too much! I look forward to meeting people on the site.

Hi Katie-Lou,

Welcome to FHUK. Please post any queries you have on the relevant forum.

I've also got Davies from Wales they were a little bit complicated to start off with but managed to straighten them out though havnt got to far with them yet.

Hi Katie Lou

Welcome to the forums.

I have a Roberts line and cannot get back any further than Thomas born 1777ish. Shows how difficult it can be researching common names.

My great gran and her mum were called Catherine Isabella and Mary Ann Katherine, Mary Ann Kate being Thomas Roberts b1777s, granddaughter but they were known throughout their lives as Kate or Katie Roberts or Kate Coombs.

Ben

Thank you all for your welcome messages. Isn't it great when another piece of the f.h.puzzle falls into place? I found a tree on another site which consists solely of my maternal grandmother's family. It has grandma under her given name, Mary, but another child added under grandma's nickname, Polly. The tree owner has not been active on that site for several years so I cannot contact him to put him straight. I look forward to interacting with everyone. Happy New Year.
