I know what you mean.

I am hoping to find that I am related to someone in the south of France or maybe Spain, so that I can go do look-ups myself! (important for accuracy!)

So far the farthest south I have traced is the Isle of Wight.

I have my Spanish or Portuguese g.g.grandmother if only I could find her, or even my g.grandfather when he was young.

Spain and Portugal are large enough to spend a lot of time searching for a needle in a haystack (there should be a term for searching for an ancestor who can't be found).

Logging off now, have to pick a granddaughter up from school (she's at a private school, hence she stays there until 5pm).

My illegitimate father's father was said to have been Italian ... do you think that's enough of an excuse to visit Italian record offices, with maybe a little diversion to the Uffizi, Siena, Rome, Venice ...  about a month would give me a chance to find out something, I'm sure !!!

I doubt you would find much in a month - what with the language difficulties etc.- anyway these matters shouldn't be rushed - accuracy is paramount - we are all relying on you to return with volumes of local knowledge - Rootschat is depending on you.

How many more excuses do you need!?

I had a GR contact this week, they allowed me to view thier tree but did not ask to view mine,  I quickly realised we were not connected but I much prefer a personal message rather than that approach.

I've been in touch with 3rd cousins who share a common great great grandfather. Our great grandfathers were brothers and used to write to each other so we've been able to swap some of the letters and photos they sent each other in about 1900.  We mail quite a lot and one of them lives about 15 minutes away from me so we have been able to meet up.  We've really been able to add life to our trees by getting both sides of the letters and all the family tales. 

I think it's hit and miss with contacts on any of the websites but definitely worth giving it a go as the benefits are fabulous if it works out.  :D

All ended up Ardwick, Manchester

How fantastic is that?

I'm off to GR to put my tree back up.
