I was right you required to make a couple of post before you can do any thing regards your Profile so in future to all future new members do not waist time trying to find out how to create a Profile just make a couple of posts and it all opens up for you ::). Why one can not be told this on the introduction to the Site/Forum completely eludes me, all very confusing, But up and running now.

Hi Milly,
Thank you, I have been on the Armed Forces Board it is very interesting and one of the reasons that I joined Rootschat. Over and above doing family tree research I collect miniature medals and one of the joys is attributing the group to an individual then researching the persons life history.
I have an interesting group which I have had for over a year and only in the past 3 months have I found out who they belong to. Major Hugh Ross Macintyre, DSO, MC + Bar, WW1 Trio with MID, MD, PHD, Royal Army Medical Corps. His back story is fascinating born in New Chwang China 1882, (his father was a missionary) Educated in Edinburgh Scotland George Watsons College then Edinburgh University, first practise Yorkshire 1911, went to war 1914 ended up 23 Division 69 Field Ambulance Italy 1919, took a PHD in Oxford 1919, he and his wife also a Doctor in a Sanatorium in Liverpool manly for wounded soldiers where he died on 23 February 1932.

I still have a lot to research yet but mainly find in a photograph would be the icing on the cake.

Kind regards
Hiram

looks to me like a good site, I came across the site on google after trying to research some descendants of mine. The forum post i found helped fill in a few of those missing gaps.

cheers.
