Family history is a bit of an addiction for me. I work as a Casual Searchroom Assistant at Suffolk Record Office and I am also a trustee and Webmaster for the Families In British India Society, so most of my time is spent working with family history, in one way or another, when not caring for my disabled partner and two teenage sons.
Researching my family history hasn’t been easy over the years as I have British Indian, German/Prussian, English, Irish, Scottish/Canadian, French Canadian, American and even Native American roots. I am not going to use this blog to publish copies of my research as I have done that in the past only to find others have copied my work and published it as their own (complete with spelling mistakes!). I have also had distant cousins contact me for copies of my research and like an idiot I sent them GEDCOM files only to find they have later uploaded it to Ancestry.com after I expressly parted with the information on condition that they don’t give the details to anyone else!
I will, however, publish brief notes on this blog and if you feel you are related or would like some help or advice please do feel free to contact me as I would love to hear from you.
