Default Family tree

Hiya, I started doing my family-tree when I first heard about the HD in my family, it does kinda help to see my tree get bigger and bigger 'behind' me and whilst I can see where the HD goes back up through my genetic line, I never forget everyone has two parents, four grandparents, eight great-grandparents and so on it doubles and becomes a huge number of ancestors very very quickly. It is quite reassuring to see all that genetic stock that went before to make you the sum of your parts.
I'd recommend genesreunited.co.uk as a good cheap website to begin recording what you know about your family and see if it overlaps with anyone else.
By the way, the HD part of my family tree includes the surnames Pringle/Pearce/Rundle and Hoskin over two centuries and comes from the South Devon/Cornish border. :o
Best wishes,
Sal

Wow I love all that kinda stuff..I have tried to trace my family tree
in the past but there is some confusion over the spelling of surnames on
my Dads side.There are so many spellings of it and the spelling on my
Dads mum's Birth certificate doesn't match with anything I've found ....
However I try to spell it lol


I'm so glad you had some great luck though

I'll just keep searching....for now :lol:

:idea: Hiya, if you go onto genesreunited.co.uk and go to the Community pages, ask for help with tricky surnames there, there's always an expert loitering around who loves a challenge. Good Luck!

I also love genesreunited. I have managed to track back on most strands of my family quite well. And I have made contact with my Dad's cousin, my mum's cousin and other distant relatives.

However, I am completely stuck with the one part that is the HD "wing" of my family. I found my Great Gran's birth Certificate (she was born in 1898) but cannot find her family at all on the 1901 census, or her parent's wedding certificate/birth certificates, or info about the brother that we know exists, but the family cannot agree on his name ;-)

I was wondering if anyone had any tips at all as to where to go next? I would love to know more about this part of our heritage, especially as it is the part we spend most time focusing on!

If you want to email me off-list I'll have a look at your genesreunited tree if you like and see if I'm able to help.
