Suzanne Before you pack your suitcase, there's probably plenty more info you can add to your tree from home. Why not try another line of the family? We've all got eight G Grandparents so that's 8 families to trace back to 1800 or so. I haven't the time or money to go trawling the country but I am still adding 'twigs' to my branches. I 'treat' myself to a marriage certificate about once a month and that usually gives me enough info to keep me busy for a few weeks. New names give you more chance of finding contacts through this site and extending your tree even further. Don't get disheartened!
