Hi everyone today we have launched two new message boards. 

Hobbies and Crafts - Maybe you're a knitter? Or perhaps you're a keen gardener? This board is the place for you to discuss your hobbies, share tips and chat with people who like the same things as you. 

Military Chat - are you trying to find the military history of one of your ancestors? Do you have a military hero you'd like to tell us about? This is the message board for you. 

We hope you enjoy them!

"Try anything once", advice in my days of youth from older person, except "Putting your neck in a noose". Followed the advice. Results, not in chronological order but pleased I kept out of that noose. Swimming, cycling, photography, Y.H.A., watercolours, marriage with issue, countryside rambling, family car driver although do not own a car today, (too old to drive) I think it should be age limited. Enjoy gardening & have a greenhouse. Almost forgot genealogy. How could I after 20 years ? Attended two schools. Both elementary. Full employment 1939 - 1980, involving 24 hour round the clock turns of duty. Some of that overseas in the Antipodes. Had recreational trips to Canada & Europe and been a church choirboy in Britain. As a youth had a paper round also kept rabbits , guinea pigs. and once
owned a golden cocker spaniel named "Raq" after the spaniel of the Rev Bramwell Evans. Caldervale

Hi All
I am 100% unhappy with the support I get from genesreunited for technical issues and now at a stage of cancelling my membership.

The problem I have is often my GED file freezes when processing a new upload. Ie it sits in the "your tree is currently being processed”” for days on end and generally happens about 1- 2 time a month. Many times I have contacted the support team

As I am based in Australia there is no afterhours support for us from England during our day hours. Does anyone less have the same problem?
Thanks :-(

I'm trying to find out what happened to my Father Jesse Amatt also known as Jesse Wright, I think he moved to the London area many years ago and will be around 89 years old now if he is still alive, but I can't find a death for him. Also I want to find a adopted Brother born in Derby in 1958, named on his birth certificate Christopher Amatt
