I have made reasonable progress in researching my English and Scottish ancestors, and although I've hit problems with my Irish research I at least have something to work with (I discovered family on census at Knockadoon, Irishtown, Co. Mayo)

HOWEVER

I have a Polish ancestor and I have no idea where to start on research there- so if anyone has done research into Polish ancestors please give me some advice.

I'm OK with my family (apart from G.grandfather who was born in London, common name can't find his origins) but my OH has one line from Ireland, so that's causing problems.

Scotland on my Dad's paternal line mainly Fife & Perth with some Dundee.

Donegal, Ireland for the rest of the family. Proving rather difficult compared to Scotland.

Just England here, though due to the surname (Evens, pronounced Evans) I'm assuming there's a link back to Wales somewhere further back. There was also a couple of generations of military in the late 1800s who travelled all over, which has taken my research to India, France and Ireland in particular.

Hi,
Main countries of interest are many.  My Father's side being Scottish and his G/F a Master Mariner many countries as well as maritime records are of interest.  On my Mother's side they came for Praque in Austria as it was then.
Pleased to hear RootsChat is growing, an excellent site and most helpful.
Regards
clancam37.
