Hi everyone,
I'm now stuck with finishing any further relatives in my tree. My resources are dry.and further finds have come to a stand still. Especially my brooks side. I've always believed my family line would be a lot richer with people than I've gathered so far. Does anybody have any further tips that would help my research further. Thank you all for your help. Feel free to view my tree and any info I've already collected :-D

Hi Adam

If you tell us where you are stuck.......giving details of who, where and when, we may be able to help you.

Adam, it's impossible to make suggestions without knowing a bit more. How far back have you got? What were you hoping to find which you haven't?

Is there a way of making my tree public for everyone to view, this would help my description on the details on where I am stuck!!!!? :-S

The answer to that is No.

You can't make your tree public on this site

Prickles.


P.S.......Is your tree on any other site??

It would be alot easier if you just listed whom you were stuck with, we can then help you.

Your tree is private, and it would be a very consuming and pointless task us sending you invites to view it... we still wouldn't have the information on what you were stuck on!!
