Family Research & my Health Improvements
I have been interested in Family History, well forever, I am sure I was born with a natural interest in all sides of family history. I had never anything to work with as I am from a disfunctional family with not alot of communication on family issues or history. My own birth place has been a hugh challenge, still to this day I have no solid proof. Broken family's with Step Parents ect. So you can imagin. I started with myself & my parents, asking for names constantly through my life, & working with what ever little piece I got.
In 2007 my father gave me a copy of the Paf file that his sister Diana had mostly researched with him [John].
This paf file has been my saviour. It has given me a new leace on life, liturlay. Having so many names now to work with & finding my GGGGG Grand Parents & more. It was like the door I was knocking on finally opened. Since 2007 I have been using the internet to find certificates for proof of information & comming across alsorts of bits 'n' pieces. I have made a copy of Dad & Diana's paf file & filling in gaps on my own paf file, so if any mistakes are made, I can start again from the origional paf file.
There is still a long way to go, to fill in the gaps & get a better conection with my new found living relies, & retracing the steps of our ancesters. I have always thought our family to be the only ones in the phone book, as it were true for many years, but on my research I have found to expand the spelling of the surnames, & keep a wider outlook than the imediate family.
I am a direct descendant from the names, Feaks, Playfair, Pitt, Matcham, Laycock, Hunter, for a start.
I am interested in communicating with anyone with interest any time, & find this sight "Family Tree Circles" a refreshing & informative sight with easy to read [for sight impared] clear imfo.
Thanks. much better
