B'j! is it free to use?

26/02/2013 at 18:12

No there are some free sites - genes reunited only costs about £10 a year, but to get anywhere you need to pay. It is free if you go to local library where you will get an Ancestry link. Use of census you have to pay

Want advice Dean I'll give it 

26/02/2013 at 18:25

Just inquisitive B'j!

Thought about it for a while, now both parents have "Left the Building" Just for interest sake more than ought else!  but at the mo, no way on earth will I have the time! Working full time!  Wanna get Lottie finished, n then need this year to concentrate on home gardens!

I agree Dean - very time consuming.

just had to undo loads on this sewing up lark. 

Fish and chips tonight - not from chippy though

Gary, the MOB rants has been quite funny, and it's getting very popular. I didn't even know what OH meant when I first read Fork Handles.Had to Google it.

Where's Beck's?

Has she found her undying love for the Male species, met her perfect match, n eloped to "Gretna Green" with the "Rington's Tea Man"?

Off to look at MOB ...shower first ..

Hi Forkers--been up for awhile, but I'm cold, so may snuggle with a book under a blanket until this recalcitrant fire finally warms things up.

Thought of working outside on the railings, but after 10 minutes the wind was cutting like a knife, so I gave up.

Think I'll take up knitting or crochet again--need something to keep my hands busy, and to help with the non-smoking.

I did some family research years ago using Ancestry--but hit a dead end. I have great grandparents born in Ireland--that and their birthdates is all I know. The surname is Scott, which is all too common.They came to England, died in Scotland.

Good evening

I have been reading and lurking but not feeling very chatty at the moment  We have had to wait 3 weeks for Aunties funeral  - it is tomorrow - also my birthday

I made up a basket of beautiful flowers to take to the funeral.

I enjoy doing a bit of family history ,too - I have a subscription to ancestry if anyone needs anything looking up

Never easy but the 3 week wait must have made it hard
