I am getting obsessed. Trying to do my own little bit of research, Log onto Genes to add a little bit to my Tree. Next thing I'm on Tips board reading other peoples Threads...... Waiting for them to get a result! Been sat for an hour now!! No wonder my Tree is progressing slowly. Clicking back to Ancestry... Honest!!

I'm even boring my friends now... Every time they come round I want to do their Tree!!! Not good enough to offer help on here... Wish I was as I'm totally stuck on mine for the next week or so waiting for certificates. Tracy

Me to, can't keep away. I try to keep off this site and get on with family history but then withdrawal symptoms creep in and I can't resist having a look, next thing I know...... well you know the rest.

I had been a member of GR for nearly six months before I found the message boards, and had to have my son show me how to use them. Now I hardly ever touch my tree on Genes. Log straight on to the message boards - and if you have only been on an hour Tracy, then you're not quite an addict yet. Wait until you are on most of the day, then you can call yourself a true addict, lol. Kath. x
