I started researching my family tree in June 1998 and since then I've discovered 100s of new relatives.
In fact I started a new project for the village of
Bolsterstone because I was sure 90% of the inhabitants were somehow related
and the count at the moment is 10,000
At the same time I
also started researching my husband's family.
Which is a different story all together. They came from Galicia.
At different times part of Poland, Russia, the Austrian Empire and now the Ukraine.
I've discovered the very best hobby with this genealogy lark,
Met (on-line) lots of friendly people with the same interests,
joined Yorksgen and lots of other genealogy mailing lists,
made friends with a crazy bunch of folks spread around the globe,
talked to cousins I didn't even know I had,
saw a photo of my Grand-father for the first time,
discovered five new half-siblings,
learnt a lot about history, social history, politics and religion.
met many members of Yorksgen at York in Aug 2000, 2002, 2004 and 2005
and last but not least: how to make web-pages.
If you are new to genealogy in the UK then start by reading The Emery Papers
then surf over to Cyndi's List : just to get an idea of the unbelievable amount of
information available for every thing connected to family research.
