Family History Beginners Board / Please Save Safely
« on: Tuesday 12 April 16 04:18 BST (UK)  »
I thought I'd just post a tip to all about the importance of saving all our fantastic papers, photographs, & absolute hard work. We are currently moving down south of Western Australia, & in our 'wisdom' stored all my family history files (14) with years & years of documents, letters etc, at my sister place in her huge steel shed. Unfortunately they had the Yarloop fires,  alas,not only 2 people lost their lives, most of the town was demolished, & yes, we lost everything. I still don't have the heart to begin again, it's just too sad at the moment. No doubt, I will start again, but please save well.  :-\

Family History Programs, Tree Organisation, Presentation / Subscription Query.
« on: Monday 04 May 15 12:06 BST (UK)  »
Greetings peoples,
I am wanting to get a subscription for researching my family.
I have narrowed my options down to Ancestry with the World Heritage package (as a lot of my relatives are from the UK).
I also want to purchase a Family History program, can anybody suggest the best program that would work with this package, I have two options in mind.
1. Family Tree Maker Deluxe OR
2. Legacy Family Tree.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated, as I am in a position to pick up my research, where I left off.
Thanks in advance. :)

Greetings Louisa Maud,
Just a update. I am asking my Mum for any of her father's War papers, hoping it may give some clues.
In the meantime, I have tried a couple of free family tree software programmes, so as to help me 'see some light' ? Not much success.As well as searching Electoral Rolls, seeing if I find him. Just thought I'd touch base with you.
Hope all is well.
Kind Regards,
Stella  :D

LM,
The plot certainly thickens :( I think he may have married whilst in the Army in India. I am going to try to search his Regiment for any marriages while in the military on Google.
Do you know of any Register that this might be in ?
Thanks again for your help. ;)
