I have been researching the Family History for over 50 years, and in that time I have met many lovely people who are interested in the Family, with many branches fanning out all over the world. Researching the family history involves not only recording people and dates, but also learning about their lives. Some have died as a result of a bomb dropping on their house in Dorset during WW2, wiping out almost the entire family. Many others died fighting for their country during both world wars. Some suffered loss and hardship, many died young, some lived to a good old age. Fame and fortune favoured others. I believe a lasting memory of people from the past is created by maintaining the ancestral database, giving us a glimpse into the experiences of our forebears.

Retired Diagnostic Radiographer (D.S.R.), and a retired Staff Nurse (R.N.M.H.) Minor heart condition diagnosed many years ago has now become a major issue and prompted me to consider trying to save my years of research on a permanent basis.
