Hi Pam it was great to read your message and feel your excitement, good luck with the research.  Just wanted to say that it was also good reading the replies I thought it was just my family that were afflicted with cloudy looking blank eyes accompanied by an irritating cough!!!

Hi all,

Cloudy blank eyes?  Cough?  ::)

My hubbie claims I am driving him down the pub more often than he'd like,  claims it's the only place he can get a conversation that's not about dead people.  ???

My kids are also fed up of hearing about dead people and my husband who has been vaguely interested went with me yesterday to the records office and was fed up within an hour and wanted to stop for dinner ....I ask you time there is far too precious to eat  :-X

I received the British Vital Records 2nd edition today and his eyes glazed over before disk 2 was in.

he quite likes the finished product of the family tree though just doesn't want to know how I got there.

Teehee.

I took my boyfriend grave walking to Wigton, that was an hilarious day!  It was in February.  There was torrential downpours interspersed with hailstones and snow.  But I packed woolley hats and boiled eggs and after a 5 minute moan he plugged himself into the radio and marched down the rows.  He did one half and I di the other.  He loved it!  Mainly because he found all the graves I was looking for and I found none..

I haven't heard the last of it.

Hi Pam,

I took my husband searching a graveyard some months age,  he wandered around,  looking bored until I told him who I was looking for.  Then he was like a man possessed,  looked on every stone,  even those I had already read.  

We did not find the one we were looking for,  and he was really disappointed.

It turned out I had taken him to the wrong church.  ::)

Hi

After reading the above posts, I must be very lucky as all of the Family are keen Genealogists - even my 5 year old, bless her.

We all love looking around old churchyards, especially if its one that may contain some of our ancestors - kids have a competion to see who can find the first one, the most, etc.

They like taking pictures of unusual stones and images on stones, which they use when doing family history at school (basic family trees) and often accompany me when I am surveying, transcribing and photograping a churchyard.  My son (10) loves it best when the churchyard is near a railway line as he is train mad, and wants to be an engine driver when he grows up.  I can remember having that dream some 50 years ago.

Well done to everyone who replied to Pam it has been great entertainment reading them.

 We attended a family wedding and hubbie couldn't believe i was taking my printed (1.5ins thick) book with me.  When I got there I suddenly realised I knew more about the dead than the living, so currently ringing everyone for their info even more glazed eyes and bored voices.
