Hello,
Some of us have been researching for decades and own a lot of resources ( Geneslogy CD's, Books etc), some are subcribers to other sites apart from this one, and some like me have 100's of Genealogy related sites bookmarked for quick access. We are only to happy to help and as you go along you will find a lot of places where you can access information yourself :)
Regards
Alison

If your in Australia, Trove is the newspaper archives, invaluable for finding info!Just do an advanced search to help weed out the rubbish.. National Library of Australia, or State Library has search options. If you know where the birth/death/marriage occured, then you can do a free ancestry search on the relevent births deaths and marriages website. Doesnt give all the info, but its a start! Plus there are other ancestry sites, that if your serious, you can join or buy credits, and they often have some different records to this site.... Ive put enquiries on here before, and its driven me to tears, the effort some people will go to help you find the info you need!!! Once, I swear, a lady spend most of the day, researching, and posting each piece of info.. Last week, I had a gentleman, go to the National Library, to try and look up a record for me... Its awesome that they will go to so much trouble for a complete stranger!

Yes I know. I have asled some questions and so many people try to help it is awesome. I will definately look up Trove and see what I can find as I have been stuck on 2 people in my family tree which is why I gave up doing it a couple of years back. So I am having another crack at it now!!

Lots of practice ........ One of the hardest things is knowing just what records there are and how to access . This changes a lot so its challenge to keep on top of.


Bye
