Stephen Guest's success story

Still waiting to hear from all the people i have contaced. A great source is the 1901 census, i have found all my fathers direct relatives going back to 1860's, also go to the parish registers web site, i found my great great grandmothers maiden name very quickly. Word of advice though, have as much info as possible before hand, it narrows your search and can reduce your costs.
