thank you everyone
« on: Tuesday 29 March 16 15:48 BST (UK) »
Hi guys

Next month for me marks the end of my primary family research. Until new records are made to light in the future, I have done all I can and I want to try and dial down the obsession a bit.

Family research never truly ends, but I have completed the majority of my research.

I just wanted to thank everyone whom assisted in helping me, putting up with my inane streams of questions and making me appreciate my ancestors a bit more.

my thanks and good luck to everyone

Congratulations on "completing" your research in such a short time!
Most of us never reach a point where we consider our research complete --there are always a few more nuggets to find

But what will you do in your spare time now?

If you've "completed" your research into your family, why not use the knowledge you've picked up on the way to help others on here? I'm sure that is what a lot of us do when we come to a temporary standstill on our own trees.

Family research never truly ends

Never a truer word said!

I can't imagine ever finishing my research. Even though I've come to a brick wall with most of my ancestors, I still haven't answered my original questions - how did a Scottish and Irish surname appear in my family? And despite all the modern technology at my disposal, I haven't got any further tracing my mother's surname than my grandfather did in the 1970s.

I'm glad you've learned to appreciate your ancestors :)

that's what I have done on more than one occasion and even if you can't help it's fun to follow an interesting thread and see how the "big guns" on here solve a mystery... ;D ;D

I said I'd be finished when I located my children's 32 Gx3 GPs!
Well I have names for them and several more unanswered questions and so it goes on!

Thank you SirSimon for the thanks and greetings

Consider a quick search every so often it is amazing what turns up - also a search for someone else is marvellous for motivation and encouraging the belief in what's possible!

Lovely note of appreciation to all who have helped you.

Have you been concentrating on both paternal & maternal direct lines only or have you been doing the branches & buds?

I have been doing my tree for over 20 yrs & I'm still finding info. to add with large families on branches etc. & can't see an end ever coming but then again, I don't want it to end either.

When I'm not doing my own research, I help on here when I can but I also love following mysteries on here too & watching them being unravelled bit by bit as it fascinates me the forensics of it all.

Good luck in your next venture.
