After more than 30 years research I found an obit for one of my Irish immigrants and it states he was born in Bray.  The names are as stated.  If anyone lives in Bray and can do research for me there I would greatly appreciate it.  The family left during the potato famine and are found in the US first in 1850.  Please contact me at  **** Thank you,  Lea Mitchell in CT,USA   PS  I am Soooo happy to finally discover Where in Ireland they were from!

The Common Room / WW11- date Americans unable travel to Eng.?
« on: Tuesday 08 March 05 18:50 GMT (UK)  »
I and a group at another site are trying to help an elderly lady find info on her mother who was last seen in 1941.  The latest we heard she went to Eng.  sometime after June 1941.  U.S. got in war in Dec. 1941 but at what point were americans no longer allowed to go to Eng.?  We think she may have gone to Eng. and got stuck there when Dec. 7th happened but need to know if she Could have left Eng. after that date to return to U.S.  So when did travel between the two places stop for ordinary people?   Leagen

The Common Room / Another site looks like Rootschat
« on: Thursday 03 March 05 14:38 GMT (UK)  »
There is another site which has the exact layout and format as Rootschat even to the color.  I was there a few months ago and don't remember it looking like that.  What is that saying?  Imitation is the greatest form of flattery?  But that site doesn't seem to be as easy to get around on.   Leagen

For U.S. gene. I go often to a site called Familyworkings and I got one of the gentleman from there to join us here.  He left a post there saying he had signed up here.  His name is Howard and he is a nice older man living in Fla. who now needs some help on his U.K. family so I hope someone here can help him at times.   Leagen
