Rootschat has helped me to appreciate the challenge of researching family history and when you do manage to clear obstacles or brick walls, with help,  there is a sense of achievement.

It's not RootsChat that is so great, but the people who make it up.  RC is just the medium.

People are so helpful and inspiring.  As well ass basic family data I have received, it is the insights and little clues as to what I should be doing.  I am not a very good on-line searcher, but I have managed to struggle a little less.

Thank you everyone.  Rootschat forever!

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 Don't 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 'Don't 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?

What a strange answer Chris.... of course it is wonderful to be able to help others, and I have done, but it is also marvellous to be able to ask a question and get answers, the benefit of which I have also had.

So probably I should be voting affirmative, except that I doubt Rootschat will continue to benefit me in the future. Perhaps there should be a 4th option:
