It was 15 years for me too on 21 January last. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Trystan and Sarah. You have given so many of us pleasure with our family history. So many brickwalls broken, mysteries solved and bits of jigsaws found.

Thank you too to the many Rootschatters that have helped us all. You too are wonderful people.
From those who solve mysteries, to those who decipher Latin or restore photos and all the other people involved who give their time. They all have my deepest thanks for this last 15 years.

I joined up in December 2006 - so a mere babe!  I came over from the old BBC forum when it was discontinued. (Maybe sometime later, because I was caring for my Mum around the time too)

Oh yes, Larkspur.  So many good friends who I miss seeing about on the boards.

Recently went back through lots of old posts to find something, and it was very sad to see those who are missing, but lovely to remember them too.

I claim the 2nd most senior so far - 5th October 2004  :o

One of the first people I came into contact with was dear old Ricky. One of the 'old school' of Rootschatters  :)
