One day I was surfing the Internet and wandered if I would be able to find out anything about my roots. I typed in my maiden name and BINGO, one of the first sites I came across had many of my family on it. I then got the 'bug' and started to look at other family names. Since my family did not come from the area that I live I found it difficult to get information and have only got so far thanks to the people with websites and those willing to lookup things for me. I then started on some of my husbands family, discovered the mass of records available locally and have decided to try and put some of it on these pages.
