    Default Brothers and sisters, can you help a 'newbie' ?

    Hi folks,I'm still finding my way around the forum and thought I'd try for some assistance with my genealogical research.I very foolishly commenced my family tree via the 'Gung Ho ' approach ( both my parents and in-laws) and rapidly came unstuck, also, as I'm unable at present to access the subscription sites for research, things have become bogged down somewhat.
    My limited research has provided ample threads to be going on with, and I know that I will ultimately have to get fully organised and subscribe to Ancestry etc., but any help from experienced members will be gratefully appreciated.
    It was my intention to sign off this missive with one of the amusing cartoon characters I see all around me, but these iconic emblems elude and evade me and taunt me from the margins and I must ,like brother Wiley Coyote, admit defeat. Ciao for now chaps.

    Good morning brer Tom.
    Things could be worse, you may find right off the bat that you are related to someone who is a member or who visits here as a guest, stranger things have happened.
    The most obvious thing to do would be to post here the full names and last known addresses of a couple of your forebears as some here have access to and practice in accessing census rolls and other data. Good luck.

    Hi Tom,
    I have access to Ancestry.
    A good resource is www.ukbmd.org.uk which has links to a large number of family research sites - a lot of them free, such as
    www.freebmd.org.uk
    www.lancashirebmd.org.uk
    www.lan-opc.org.uk (lancashire online parish clerks project)
    and of course the mormons site - www.familysearch.org
    Good luck with your research and let me know if you want something looking up on Ancestry

    Thanks Tilly. I found my Grandmother's (Heron) family were all members of St. Peter's Church (no longer there) for generations.

    Hi RoniJayne,
    I'm pleased to hear you found the web sites useful. I'm guessing Lan -Opc was the one that helped you find your family links with St Peters.
    Good luck with your research
    Tilly
