Mostly for now I am looking all parts of Scandinavia, but narrowed down to Sweden and Norway.
Just to know more about the culture, its people and the history.

And to understand the naming system as well.
The whole dottir and son surnames from the parents. Fascinates me.

England (Staffordshire, Lancashire, Middlesex, Surrey, Kent)
Wales (the NE)
The Netherlands (back to the 12th Century on some branches)
Ost Friesland (18th Century)
Poland (Gdansk area, 1600)
France (Picardy, back to 15th Century)

Basically given up on the main family branch (Haycock) as, despite intense & strenuous help in researching by other members on the forum, the brick walls are loath to tumble. Some skeletons just refuse to open the closet door I guess.  ;D
Haycock (Liverpool and Wolverhampton); Rosewell (Shepperton); Wales/Whales (Thanet, Kent); Daborn (Chobham, Horsell); Prince and Powell (Liverpool area); Maxted and She(e)pwashe (Kent); Milo/Millot (France, Holland, England); genealogical research project on links to ancient Frisian aristocracy (Hofstra-Fynia-Tania). Spending the remainder of my time trying to handle three teenagers ;o)

Mainly England and Wales at this stage, although as I go further back on certain branches I know I'll end up in Scotland and Ireland.
