Hello :D

Im unsure were to post this message absolute novice to this site and tracing business!

I have a request and i read rick's post about new members and unsure about where to post, it was recommended that i message a moderator but not allowing me to send them messages or im just not looking in the right place!

I dont want to put information in this post as i know its not for here.

If some kind person would like to point a clueless lassie out that would be great  :-\

Hi Morto and welcome to RootsChat....the beginner's board is a good place to start so ask a question here to get you started. When you are more confident in your research you can post on one of the boards relevant to your area of interest.
Good Luck!

Hi!

Thank you for the replies

I have been using ancestry.com to begin with but finding it hard to follow!

I have traced possibly great granda and possibly my great great granda but unsure if they are correctly linked to each other to my granda

All who are deceased so im i allowed to post names and dates?

Hi Morto

You've made a good start here on the beginners board

http://www.rootschat.com/forum/beginners/

Please take a few moments to read our guidelines for posting

http://www.rootschat.com/help/posting_guide.php

and also getting the best results

http://www.rootschat.com/help/posting_best.php

Rootschat is open 24/7 worldwide so there should be someone around most times or in a couple of hours to try to help or make suggestions.

It might help if you amended your profile to include where in the world you are. It's no good us suggesting you look at something in New Zealand for example and you are in New Mexico.

Happy hunting!

Hi,

What is the message about? I may be making a HUGE assumption but the word 'lassie' is the message about Scots ancestry by any chance???

If so, or if not - click on 'home' at the top of here and scroll right down.

Click on one of the relevant counties listed under Scotland, and there you go.

If not Scotland scroll until you find somewhere that looks appropriate. If you get it wrong, I'm sure a moderator will move it to the right place.
