Just been seeing a few comment on these threads, about older members not being around so much, so just wondered, how long have you all been members and which boards or threads do you tend to use ? :O)

Hi Everyone

So a lot of us have been around for quite a while then ;O)
Been a member myself for about 5 years, like quite a few of you guys only started posting this year, just used to stand on the sidelines looking in, must be like you Roverwild, duck out when the mud pies start to fly ;O)

So it took quite a while for some of us to dip out toes in the Water then :O)

Sheila Report 25 Jun 2008 20:46

Hi, Sheila

Been a member since February this year but only more recently been adding comments, etc., on Chat & General.

For my family tree I have put requests for info on the other relevant boards and have to say these have been very worthwhile. A couple of times hit a brick wall but thanks to some kind people on the boards, managed to "knock it down" and continue.

So have most of us on here actually started with the idea of tracing our family tree, and got way laid along the way ? :O)

Sheila Report 25 Jun 2008 21:47

So I am guessing there are a few people on here with a sum total of one person on their tree ;O)

What happened prince ? did you mean to go onto the tips board and pressed chat instead ? ;O)
