I think I saw it mentioned in a magazine article and being nosey, at a loose end and surrounded by family tree brick walls thought I'd have a look!

I'm still nosey....less often at a loose end...but have knocked down monumental brick walls all with the help of Rootschat!!

So if you don't mind, I'll keep coming back!  ;D

I was bored and completely fed up.  I typed in a general search for genealogy in the hope that a site I hadn't seen before would pop up and answer all my questions.  Guess what?  It did ROOTSCHAT.

Funny, I don't seem to get bored or fed up anymore!

I saw mention of it in a newspaper article about a teenager who had started tracing his family tree.  The rest is (family) history! :)
