How long have you been researching or have you just started?

for me it seems like a long time but i am doing little by little as some websites request membership which can get quite expensive but i am finding information, but with restrictions on viewing marriage and birth records it can become more fustrating, but i found the census helped out alot

Which geographical areas are your family from?

my famliy on my mom side is from south wales risca area. i have done some looking into some of the counties sorrounding this area but finding out which ones can be confusing to make sure i have the right family member and name which i have found they go by their middle name not by their first name , which can make it even more confusing

For now, what would you like to achieve from your research?

to try and find out how to use the census and any other means of research to help me along in my quest to trace back my family a long way and any records that may be available to view

Which aspects of genealogy interest you most?

birth death marriages and graveyard findings and even the churches where some of my ancestors attended, a footnote i already have obtained the records from the pier21 society in nova scotia for the famly coming from wales to canada in 1926

Which meeting days and times are best for your schedule?

tues at 1pm would be best for me
