    This family run website has been going for many years.
    It covers towns and villages as well as surnames

    I've come across this site on many occasions and found it very useful, in particular with regard to the parishes of Ecclesfield and Rawmarsh in South Yorkshire -- I made a contact through Curious Fox which helped me solve a long-standing brickwall.

    All the best,

    I found this site quite a few years ago before many of the larger ones came along. I can remember putting a message up and also answering a few queries where I was able. I'd completely forgotten about this, so thank you for the reminder. :)

    I have found it useful for getting messages across in certain villages also a cousin of mine replied to me, I hadn't realised it was my cousin I had contacted. Both of us chasing the same information.

    Thank you for reminding me - I haven't used this for years - I managed to find a whole heap of Sussex ancestors thanks to one post that was on there - I shall give it another look

    I am having problems using this site.. I hadn't posted for years and then got a reply to one of my postings.. I had to fork over $ to read the reply as I wasn't a paid member. The person who replied is the gr. granddaughter of a gr. aunt of my husband. I KNOW I read that and now I cannot find that reply in order to respond to it ! It is a very confusing site to navigate or am I just thick?

    I haven't been back for some time either, maybe they have changed their ways to keep up with others or just hang onto their website.

    I'd forgotten about that site, must renew my acquaintance with the site, thanks Dee Dee for jogging my memory.

    A useful site, you can be a free member or pay £6.50 [I think] for the year. The admin will inform you if you have a message

    I found that site years ago too and had forgotten it. I never found it useful and any messages I left were unanswered.

    It was 10 years and now I have a reply! I did find it, but it is hard to find and I had to pay to read it It is likely worth it as it has unlocked more information on hubby's paternal side, After having a conversation on there I now have his email addy and I just need to email the chap now when I get a moment
