New Here But Old Hand!

Hi All,

Been researching for over 30 years but since I started in my late teens I'm not as old as you might think ;) Run a Ballard genealogy website with 300 pedigrees on it and nearly 18,000 Ballards in my database. In the process of writing a series of books on the early Ballard families of England.

Born in Hasings, Sussex but now live in Co Mayo, Ireland having moved here after retiring from an IT career a few years ago.

Have 3 children (all grown & flown) as well as 3 grandsons with a fourth grandchild due in the next month.
