Hi All,

England

Very lucky as my family immigrated from England to Australia in 1912, so all my research is from the West Riding of Yorkshire right back to 1585.

So many records, so little time!

As janham implied, England is family history heaven.

And Roots Chats is the best family history forum. Thank you everyone for all your help. Could not have done it without you.

Cheers Karen

Oh how I envy anyone searching England !!!.

I'm so pleased that I don't have ancestors  in so many countries, especially as I was only taught French and German at school  - although I picked up a few other foreign words from cowboy films, etc., such as Adios Amigo lol

Hi. My research is based on the people buried in Shorncliffe Military Cemetery.
So far it has taken me to Afghanistan Australia, Belgium, Canada, India, Mesopotamia, USA, Waziristan and countless other places in between and most of them without leaving the UK.

Have you researched Bernard Francis McSorley 1917 - died 25 January 1944 ? (with photograph)
Only asking because I came across him, earlier today, when looking for something else.

yes, but not seen these. Thank you much appreciated.
McSorley was a highly skilled pilot. On the day he died he was the pilot of a Halifax Bomber. Taking off on a Pathfinder training flight, the Halifax struggled to gain height and clipped the top of a Farm House. Some reports say trees. The aircraft crashed into the pond in front of the house and basically exploded. The crew all died in the crash except one who died the following day. The remains of the aircraft are buried where the pond used to be.
