Hello Giselle, welcome to the boards.

When you say you're looking for relatives do you mean you're trying to trace their ancestors, their descendants, or siblings?

It always helps us to help if you can tell us whatever else you know about people, and what research you've already done.

Pam, if you hover your cursor over the picture to the left of someone's name you can see how many posts they've made! (You've got 492 as of right now).

Thanks again MC, I know how to find the info, I don't usually check it. Preferred it when the info was in sight not hidden.

Will call it a day now and wait for Giselle to reply to your post as I am not posting info on people that are probably alive. :-)

Oh well, someone who didn't know might read it!

You're right, we need feedback from Giselle.

Hi Giselle, one thing you won't be sort of on here is responses!

If you can just clarify what it is you're wanting to find we'll be happy to help, and to point you in the right direction for where to find info yourself.

As Giselle is new to the boards, she may well be new to researching and, possibly never even heard of freebmd. I know I had never heard of it when I began.


Giselle, it's worth making a note of a couple of really helpful sites....

www.freebmd.org.uk

and

familysearch.org


Good luck.
