    If you need to ask a "where do I put it?" or "Is it okay to?" question, it is the ideal place to post it. :)
    Absolutely start another thread! :D
    Keep going! We all love as many challenges as you can muster! As long as they are not duplicate postings, we are happy to get our teeth into them. ;)
    Thank you! It is rather special here. :)

    So now that I've done two branches of the family and made progress, I'm unsure as to where to go next. I have so many branches to follow.

    I chose to go with my maternal grandmother's line. It depends too on how far back you want to go or can get on a particular line. I guess it's a personal choice.

    Again everyone thank you very much for all your help. I guess my hesitancy originally about trying another family tree forum was the fact that people seemed to get annoyed when I kept asking questions on other forums and also not being able to help others too much find information on their family due to limited access to things.
    Again thank you and I'm sure I'll have more lines to come.

    Cheers :D :)

    Cheers to you too. We’re a special breed here and my access is limited too but I get stuck in where I can. Sometimes I’m a hindrance but it’s all good fun. It’s a great place to be.

    We relish questions, as has been said many times before nothing here is a silly question if you do not know the answer, so ask away and someone is bound to have an answer (and others learn something new too:D).
    Your turn will come to help someone else at some point, don't worry about it:)

    What all the others have said, and we do tend to find other people's families more interesting than our own :cool::D

    This is the best place for it I guess.

    Merry Christmas to everyone here. May 2021 be better year for you all. Hope Santa brings you all your presents including much clearer family research :D

    So here will do as it’s more a reentry thing. I’ve been a bit quiet for a bit as my laptop died and been having issues getting it fixed. Also school holidays were happening so no time. But school is back and laptop back soon so looking forward to building my tree up more. Hope everyone has been well and safe

    Sorry to hear about the laptop, but we are still here and as safe as we can be. So post those questions and the puzzles will help take our minds off things. ;)

    Welcome back, Matt. It's been all a bit up in the air everywhere, I think.
