Chuckle..

My family love the output but not the search.  My younger sisters, are hilarious.  Y'see I'm a scientist but they are artists so we have different views of how it all works.  One of them has created a quilt and she is embroidering the tree on it and give her the names only hyen I'm completely sure of the connections.

She did this whole branch of GREENs in Lochmaben - a good 20 odd people. BUT I discovered fairly recently I'd made a boob!  There were 8 Robert Greens in the village all born within 3 years of each other and got the wrong one!

So the glazed look has gone to venom as she unpicked it... :(

Anyway, Good luck with your asearches off to shop..

Hi everyone,

Loved reading this topic.  I to get very excited when I find something new and my family think I am completely mad.

I get great support from my husband, though when I start rambling on he has that look in his eyes as if to say "God here we go again.

He did come with me the first time I when to the library in the city. I got so excited when I found the first person I was looking for that the lady next to us reminded us that we were in a library.  So when I found the next one I got excited quietly.

My eldest son said I don't need to find all the dead relatives because he already knows where they are they are dead and buried.

My youngest asked me the other day how old will he be when he dies so I went through the family tree and told him he should live to be in his mid to late 80's.  So now I think he is thinking what is he going to do for the 70 or so years he has left.

My sister said that all parents should be made to write down everything they know about the family so it make it easier for future generations.  Though I can see why some don't want to tell things as I discovered when I found out that my Grandmother was illegitamate and her children did not know.  I think my Aunties have for given me.

Anyway I think this site is fantastic and I have gotten lots of help from it.

Keep up the good work.

Jacquie.

I got sent to bed at 23:30h for being annoying!  But in the hour I was allowed to mix with the living I found my 1881 family and 1901 family - I guess the name PHYTHIAN is a bit easier to find than Hughes in North Wales!

Thanks for your kind words, a couple of look-up requests to come.

I'll check out the archives - thanks.

This line went on hold a few months ago - I find research in England and Wales a bit annoying, the certs are so pricey.  To top that I broke a major wall down in my Scott/Carruthers line so I've been working on that.

Maybe it's time to pick teh Phythians back up  ;D

Thanks for the tip.

Pam

Cheers Munchies.  It's such a strange name I reckon they'll all link up eventually so that's excellent to add to the files..  Thanks.

Though you guys are doing more than me on this lot - I'm shamed  :-[

Hello Suey,

I would not worry about your nephew's partener some people are just not interested in family history, though it was a bit rude to yawn. 

I use to ring my mother up if I found anything out about her family because I was excited that I had found something.  All my mother would say is are you sure it is the right person and how do you know it is, you could be tracing someone elses line by mistake.  I once asked her if she wanted a copy and she not now maybe later. 
I don't ring her any more I just tell her I have found something when we see each other.  I am sure she is really interested as she has told me some interesting stories about her family.

So we should all get excited when we find something new and not worry about what other people think when we tell them about family history. 

Regards Jacquie.
