This site was recommeded to me by a friend who had just started to research her family history. I hadn't really started tracing my family until I used Rootschat, but in the short time I have been researching I have got quite far back on all sides of my family, with the help of Rootschat.  ;)

I've been trying to work out how to put my family tree on to my website and was on the Family Historian User Group site and Rootschat webspace was regularly being recomended.  Well I found the site and I've been so busy looking at the really useful help and advice on every kind of topic, I haven't had chance to look at the website thing!  Guess one thing all us family researchers have is patience so I know I'll get there someday.  :)

Well I am new so I know how I found it - I had been searching for ages for one ancestor - bought birth and death certs which turned out not to be him.  I could only find him on two census years - one he said he was from Birkenhead and the previous one he said Altrinhcam!  Eventually Altrincham turned out to be the one - he was born in 1850.  So I finally had confirmation of father's name and occupation mathcing the marriage cert.

A kind contact researching the same name (different person no family connection) posted a look up request for 1851 census . Another very kind rootschatter posted the reply and suddenly I had a host of new ancestors.  The jigsaw puzzle fitted together perfectly.

Brilliant - I joined in and saw what lovely people chat here and now I am an incurable addict - I rush home from work to see what new posts have appeared.  Hope I can be as helpful to someone else one day.
