Celia,

You have me intrigued... ???

I've been along a wrong branch only once but with such a degree of confidence it was difficult to back track.  It was more of a "Eureka" moment though...

What's the word...

I must say that eventhough my family is still being difficult in tracing that this has by far been the most helpful of sites. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.  ;D

If I can fathom out how to use the site.  So far I'm completely baffled.

I think I must be a bit thick, I'm trying to find out how to start using the site to help people trace ancestors from Cheshire and Lancashire through Census, but this is the only bit I've managed to get on.  I went to chat room for help but there was nobody there, when I tried to get out of chat room by clicking on cross the whole thing went off and I had to login three times.  Can anybody help me please.  How do I start posting?
Any help greatly received.
