How a brick wall workshop helped move past one question, on to another!

I've just become aware that my Study website was taken down as I hadn't visited for a while (too busy rebuilding trees)

I will be rebuilding but wondered if anyone had suggestions for a free site hosting platform that is a WYSIWYG editor (I don't have time to learn html coding!)

Took a walk into the old burial ground of St. Mary the Virgin at #Twickenham  a couple of weeks ago. Have added transcriptions to the images - You may find your surname amongst them?? #genealogy   #gravestones   #surnamestudies

I ordered two birth certificates from the local registry office on Tuesday; by snail-mail as I couldn't order on-line.

They called me yesterday to double check details as a mother's maiden name didn't match up but everything else did. They didn't want me to spend my money on a certificate if it was the wrong one. I told them to send it anyway as it may be a re-marriage (David and Elizabeth popular names back then). They arrived this morning.

This brilliant service only cost me 25p more per certificate than the GRO but this level of customer service and the speed in which I got them.

Thank you Flintshire Registry Office, the GRO could learn a lot from you.

I've just signed up as a volunteer for FreeREG to transcribe Surrey registers. 

If you've not used FreeREG before it's an amazing FREE resource that relies on volunteers to transcribe parish registers of baptisms, marriages and burials so they can be provided to us genies free of charge.

As STEERS have a strong presence in Surrey I thought I'd help give back something to the community and maybe find some entries for the study that I might not otherwise have come across.

If you want to volunteer yourself then head over to the site and see what takes your fancy.
