Family History starts as a slight curiosity about your family's past.
Once you have the knowledge of one set of great grandparents, you didn't
know about, it sort of takes over and does not take long to be
completely hooked on the subject. Obsessed even, some might say!).
The search for other great grandparents can take you to places you never
dreamed you had connections with. In our case, Scotland, Ireland, and
many parts of England. You can find the "well to do", and you can also
find some are paupers, who's stories can be heartbreaking:
This site and the records on it are of both our families. The research
into these lines have been fascinating to follow.
Since starting The Family History search, I have met many new friends,
met many interesting people, have visited many different places and many
many different research rooms!
Carol and Chris.
