I found Rootschat by sheer accident, can't even remember what I was looking for on Google  ???  I can safely say I have never looked back.  I have made so many wonderful new friends from all over the world.  Thanks for introducing us Trystan and Sarah  ;)

I found rootschat via research on the web and google hits.  Dropped in a few times but did not register.  Did register the other day though and I am on most nights either chatting or browsing the posts.  Great community very helpful and we all find ancestors!   :) :)

Out for a drink one night and bumped into an old friend and discovered we had a common intrest and he told me about rootschat.
I could not believe people would be so kind as to help you via look ups and general advice all for free

I was on a message board on Genealogy.com, asking questions, and someone directed me to Rootschat, saying there were very kind people here who did lookups.

Well!  One of the best pieces of advice I've ever had.  I am constantly stunned by the kindness of strangers here.  Of course I don't think of them as strangers any more - they are part of my Rootschat family! ;D

I don't have access to censuses, etc, but I do try to help beginners with queries to which I know the answers, and have done some translation from French for a fellow Rootschatter.  But you have to be quick off the mark!  Many times I've logged on, seen a post and thought, "I can help", but someone has beaten me to it! :D  ;D
