You are doing great! I have already found another generation of the Welsh side of my mothers family.

It seems to be a really good site. I have already found quite a few useful links and I'm sure it will lead to more information for me.

Hi there

This site seems to be excellent and very very user friendly and I love the ability to be able to attach images to the messages; great, keep up the good work.

The question "DO YOU THINK ROOTS CHAT WILL BE OF SOME HELP TO YOU" is very difficult to answer honestly as you only have three choices - Yes, No or Dont Know.

From past experience of Local & Family History I have found it more enjoyable to be able to help others in their quest for Ancestors, and get great satisfaction from solving difficult research enquires - so I therefore had to reply as 'No' or 'Dont Know' (I'll keep it secret as to which I chose), rather than being positive and saying Yes.

Think about it, is it better to give rather than receive?

Chris,

I must agree there is something really exciting trying to solve other people's genealogy or local history puzzles. In a way it's like being a crosword fan and you're asked to solve other people's crossword for them!

I like the grave images that you've put on your messages already. It's going to get really good when everybody starts putting on images!

Hi Admin

Didn't know you were lurking in the background.

I would have said that it was more like picking up a partly completed crossword that has been discarded as it could not be finished - all the clues are there, but some help is required.

Oh, and by the way, I have over 5000 grave images of memorials in Lewes, East Sussex.
