Feb 2007. I found Rootschat via Google search on one of my unusual surnames. Was contacted by a RootsChatter who is sadly no longer with us. She passed away before I was able to tell her I had definitely found a connection between our two families.

Oooh, I am a relative newcomer,November 2008.
What a Godsend.
Help with Family History and lots more besides, friendship, offloading moans and irritations,general companionship and laughs, with the bonus of good information outside family history matters.
What more could you ask for?
Many many thanks to everyone.
Viktoria.

I joined on 8 November 2010, Iíve had a lot of help and hope Iíve helped others on their Family History journey.

 Iím finding it hard to settle to getting on with my own family history at the moment even though I have plenty of time on my hands as Iím halfway through my 12 weeks ďshieldedĒ isolation at home, very boring it is too. I check Roots Chat at least twice a day and tonight itís the middle of the night as I canít stop coughing due to Asthma not to any other nasty bugs. I think Iíve stopped coughing At last so itís lights out time!
