I joined GR two weeks ago,after being a member of Ancestry for 10 months.Can't say it's advanced my tree any further, but Oh! it's been worth it for the threads. Really entertaining, and lots of diverse topics to discuss. Sorry if I've been a bit pedantic in my replies at times, but that's just me.

I've changed my thread name to - Geordie in Norfolk - cos that's what I am!

Love to you all, Lynda <3

Hi Lynda and welcome to the chat board.

Pop in any old time,
Make yourself at home;
Put your feet on the mantle shelf,
Open the cupboard and help yourself.
We, don't care if your friends,
Have left you all alone;
Rich or poor, just knock on the door,
And make yourself at home.

Prickles. :-D

A very warm welcome to you Lynda. We're all sitting here waiting for Prickles's Sunday Tickler at the moment (well, some of us are ;-) )

Ooh, what lovely people you all are! Nice to see some fellow Geordies out there. Lived in West Norfolk for 28 years, but my heart is still in the North East, love to back up there now and again :-D
