Family History

Family History is something I am really keen on. I started working on my family tree last year and I really find it so exciting. When you discover a new person you get silly excited! I only wish I had photo's of these people as I would love to know if I look like any of them.

Mind you its not a cheap hobby and I can be expensive to find out all this information.
Recently I hit a brick wall and found it hard to move on. So I turned to my Internet friends and found a lovely lady called Sue Kelso Ryan and she has been a star helping me to uncover more people.
If you want to give it a go then start with yourself and work back, that's how I started. If you have older family members you can ask, go to them and see what they know.

If you can join up to a site like wow.Ancestry.co.UK or another  type of site, of which there are many. That way you can search the records and start to build a tree.
Be warned it is addictive and you will be so drawn in you will never get out.
My family history is growing by the day and when I find any new little gems I will write another post and share. So wish me luck and start your family History today.
