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
