I just received my first certificate ordered from England
« on: Friday 22 October 04 23:10 BST (UK) »
Hello All     :) :) :) :)

I am so excited I just received my first certificate ordered from England. I was watching the mailbox daily just waiting. I am buzzing. My husband thinks I am mad. I say I am devoted.
Not worried about washing, cooking ,cleaning and gardening this has got me hooked.

Thinking off what certificate to order next.

Regards

Troods I know that feeling, I recently discovered the WRO had 5 letters written by my gg grandfather when he was about 19. Prior to that after searching everywhere for absolutley yonks, I couldn't find hide nor hair of him, (& haven't found anything else yet). You can imagine my excitement!! I sent away for them, & could hardly think of anything else for a week. When they arrived I found they were copied one on top of each other on the same page, but at right angles to each other, if you can imagine that. Extremely hard to read, & the only way I could decipher them was to hold the page at an angle & squint! One was totally undecipherable, but the other 4 revealed such a wealth of information that I had no idea about... it was well worth the effort.

 Hi Troods,
I order my certificates from England too and count the days until they arrive.
Nothing beats that feeling when you see the envelope in the mail box! ;D
I have ordered a marrige cert and it should arrive on Monday - I can't wait!

You lot dont know how lucky you are,  I am very pleased that I can now order my certificates myself and not have to get my daughter to do this for me, but unlike you, I have to wait until I can get to the post office to pick mine up, the post office isnt in my village, it is in the next village down the mountain, the post office is only open for two hours a day, daily from 8 -10 mon - fri and 9 - 11 sat.
Consequently I only go to pick up once a week, image how hard it is when an expected certificate is not in my pile of post!!!  I have to try and think of something else ALL WEEK until I next go.
I hope you all feel properly sorry for me!
