Hi all, I liked the idea of a sort of swap shop......helping someone out in a parish of mutual interest etc. Problem is getting someone in a sleepy Hef. village with an interest in a sleepy Irish village is a bit remote. Just to add to this idea....... how many of you get a kick out of helping someone out with a tricky rellie.....admit it- you get a lot of satisfaction from it....don't you? When you come across an unusual story how about tracking down someone who would have an interest? There was a local history book published here in my local town about a Brit. army graveyard. I read with interest about an officer who buried 2 of his chilren there (unusual name) I found a researcher in OZ who was descended from this family........... he never knew anything of these 2 children......he prob. never would of known of them either.It's great practice for your own research too.Also, your reclaiming a little bit of history too. Take a closer look when reading a local's amazing what you come across.Ypou never know someone may just get in touch with you one day. I get a great feeling from it............ 9 out of 10  times they can't believe your not connected. Worth a try. Regards,Kevin.
