Hello Alan
Welcome to the site. You will find lots of very helpful and well infomed people on here, and the great news is, they all help each other. Have a look around, decide which forum is best suited to any question to might have, and fire away. Its as easy as that. It wont be long before you read something that you know the answer to, and thats when you return the favour by offering someone else a hand. Enjoy the site Alan and I hope you find out lots about your family history, but be careful, its addictive !!!
Best wishes,
