Welcome To My New Blog

Welcome to my new blog, this blog is for family history, I will be sharing my family's history it problems I have with research & finds & the general highs & lows of having a hobby sorry obsession like Genealogy
I will be not only covering my family but also my husband's who's line goes back to Scotland then to India (as it was before 1947) & now Pakistan then of course here in the UK
My family on the other hand is more shall we say local, in that my Dad's side is from London & before that Yorkshire (way back) my Mum's side well I always thought that her dad was Irish or so I was told just goes to show you do need to do your own research as yes her side did come from Ireland but a few generations before, again she & the parents are in London but on her mother's side well they came mostly from Suffolk & Cambridge so I am a Cockney, Yorkshire Country Lass who is looking for her roots.

I love family history stories. It has become an obsession with me in the last year. Good summation.
Thanks for sharing.
