This tip may help people new to genealogy. People on this board often give details of site addresses that have been useful to them. As soon as you see the address type it in straight away and then add it to favorites. When you have time to look through the sites and may find they are no use to you - you can then delete them. I have done this for quite sometime now and have often found loads of useful information. I used to write the address on scraps of paper and then loose them. This way I can look at them in my own time. Thank you to all the kind people that give this useful info to us all. Good Luck Irene
