Recommended by a fellow researcher who I now discover is a 'veteran' chatter.   Great site wish I'd found it sooner.

Someone named Ann who kept posting all over Rootsweb and British-Genealogy (the forum for Archives CD Books). I figured I would check it out.   :)

I happened to be talking to another researcher on MSN, and he mentioned that he had put a couple of posts up on rootschat, and as I'm curious by nature,I decided to check it out, it's now listed in my favourites, and its now become an addiction, that I can't afford not to have.Not only is it a great site,it saves my sanity, knowing that others can have the same problems and rewards, with the click of a mouse.

I was bored with my ancestors after the first week of ancestry.com and didn't have the gump to order certificates from the UK to further my research (wither) ... so, I looked on other genealogy message boards for someone that I might help.

Well, I found someone named Joe... and sent an email with some information.  It turned out that I didn't help Joe... Instead,  Joe helped me with a link to this site.

Now, I am never bored AND I have ordered many certificates! Thank you Joe!

When I was down and out and feeling sad . . .
I surfed the net and there it was!  I have tried others and none have been as helpful and as fun as this one!

I had this site recommended to me by a distant relative in Canada (she found me by letter) and like we say the rest is history.  Brilliant site Sarah & Trystan Thanks

I think it was through Google.  I was getting very frustrated with my HUGHES in Llandudno research (10% of the town has that name!) and I think it Googled it's way to me exactly 1 year and 15 days ago.

Some folks on the OU Family History group had mentioned it but not taken to it   :-\ but I hadn't got round to visiting.

I don't know when I'm up for parole?  ;D
