    Most families have things they think are embarrassing and wish not to talk about. It all adds to the fun of genealogy in teasing out the past. I've researched our family worldwide. It's great fun and addictive and would recommend the hobby to anyone.

    Hiya Taffy,
    If only my dad and his parents could know how proud this info has made me,
    My dads g dad was in the army (Sergeant Major) and all his uncles where army people too.My Dads mum was disowned by her family for getting married to a "commoner"---My granddad ........this is when she came to live in Liverpool

    I have a family tree on line, in Geneanet. I am about 1850. Itīs too difficult to find more, coz the papers was destructed in our civil war.

    If you go back far enough Marie ( a few thousand years), you'll find large numbers of your ancestors ended up in Wales. This has been determined by comparisons of DNA analyses from different populations around Europe.

    I've been doing my tree for about 4 years but only got to about early 1800's with the Liverpool sides of my family
    but the Suffolk side of my family has been overdone going back to 1500's so many people are connected to the Foremans from the little village of Pakenham in Suffolk there was nothing left for me to do

    Been researching my tree for a couple of years back to 1720, the good thing was like Mandys family mine stayed in the same village called Broseley in Shropshire before moving to Liverpool early 1900s.
    Had alot of success and have had emails from connecting family trees.

    Have a family tree website with over 4000 hits from all over the world.

    I found my Aunt after 25 years while doing my tree we lost contact after my mum & dad divorced ,she told about my gt gran who had been charged with killing her twin grandchildren, unfortunatly my aunt didn't know any other details because it was all hushed up & no-one spoke of it
    my gt gran seems to have been a very nasty woman as she had 15 children only 3 survived, she also looked after her brothers baby when his wife died of TB the baby soon died of severe malnutrition
    My Aunt also told me that my Gt gran locked my mum & her sister in a cellar while babysitting them

    I love a good murder mystery
    I tell my kids to behave because it might run in the family

    I just started mine, I trace mine back to Cork and England

    As far as I know one side of my family was in the British army at one point and the other side in the IRA during the early 20th century, what a great family reunion that would be

    At last the People search/family tree section has found its voice, some great stories I like Dades that would be some family reunion.
    In my family if a child died as a baby the next child born of the same sex would be given the dead childs name, this really threw me until I realised what was happening, so I would come across two Elizabeths to the same parents, once you get into following the evidence that you realise what has happened, this happens lots of times over the generations.
    Have people come across similar?

    Have a look at this site
    http://www.spatial-literacy.org/UCLnames/default.aspx

    when you do a search for 1881 all people with my surname live mainly in one area Shropshire and Welsh Borders, in 1998 we are stiill in the same area with small pockets in Merseyside, Midlands and a small area of Lancashire.

    Default reunion

    welcome Dade, I,ve found my present aunt who has married into our family has ancestry with the I.R.A. In fact they were shot by the British after the Easter Rising of 1913. Now if my Ganny was to meet up with them half would be gun running and half would be getting ale out of Cain,s brewery.

    Default family tree

    yes John, I,ve come across two Elizabeths in my tree, thought about one dying but couldn,t find the death cert. for the first one. Makes me think they got rid of her by other means. I,ve heard of people burying their dead babys in the garden or throwing them in rivers etc. found a feotus in the bingo club I worked in once and that was back in the seventies. I,ve also found my relatives in an Americans tree and she has got them all mixed up, my relatives with hers. Sometimes they just plump for the first name that seems to fit in with their ideas. You have to cross match and confirm in this family tree business.

    See

    The net effect of this Iberian immigration these days is that many Welsh people are typically dark skinned and short. We might even be cousins Marie !!!

    Default costa de tree

    Hello Lady, my tree to date after seven years and certificates galore and photos, fares back and forth, meals, etc. I reckon has exceeded Ģ3000 to date, but, as you said, mine has never been done before, and what a legacy to leave behind to a relative that hasn,t been born yet.....

    Hi all been doing mine on and off for 15 years it becomes addictive and then you leave it for ages. Wish I could visit all the places my lot have come from. I do need to visit Ireland Dublin and Belfast as my lot where spread out but no real idea which part. I read in George Bests book his mothers maiden name was Withers as is mine so I would love to think we had a relation in common. I got some great letters from my Grand dad when he was in the war, they where so sad and I am so proud of him they went through hell and how any survived I don't know. Good luck to you all and keep going its well worth it.
    To the world you might be one person, but to one person you might be the world.
