  • Great Britain site for genealogy

    I just thought I would mention that I am enrolled in a site which is based in GB, called Genes Reunited. I & one of my cousins have been working on those relatives (on my maternal side) who either left or stayed in England. My cousin is related to me through both my grandmother & my grandfather. So, just Google Genes Reunited for assistance. It doesn't cost too much, think it's cheaper than, as you pay a bit every 6 months. Let me know if anybody uses it. I've actually downloaded my printed out family tree, of course, it's on 8 x 11" sheets, & you have to tape the pieces together, on a very large table. Joan

    Genes Reunited is a great site, I have been on it for a few years now, had a partial family tree on it for quite a while and made some excellent contacts,I took it all down a while back, will have to renew my subscription sometime and start some input again; also a good site (with plenty of help available) is Roots Chat, also UK based, a lot of area specific threads on this one; here is some detail on it>>>>>>

      Gordon, my cousin, who lives near Southampton, got me to go onto this Genes Reunited. Also she's the one who's done most of the work on the family trees. As stated previously, her great-grandmother & great-grandfather were related to my grand-mum & grand-dad. Her great-grandma was a cousin to my grandma, & her great-granddad was my grandfather's brother!!! I actually met them when I lived in England, Uncle Frank & Auntie Ciss. He died in 1959, soon after we met him. When I was in my late teens, none of this sunk in. However, I liked them so much, I traveled down to London by myself on the train, & went out to Cricklewood to visit them. (mainly Ciss, as I think Frank had died by that time.) Would love to be able to jump on a train & visit London once again. Of course, I still have cousins up around Aberdeen, although one just died around Christmas. It's nice to be able to visit in this way, isn't it?? Thanks for the addie for rootschat. Joan
