It will come as no surprise that I have researched my own family extensively. Many members of it, despite their humble origins were interesting people. They might not have thought that they were, if they had time to think about it as some of them had very hard and sad lives.
On the left is a picture of my maternal grandmother, Margaret Lindsay. She is certainly the most interesting (and I suspect the most beautiful) member of my family, not least because of her success in her chosen career in domestic service despite having given birth in 1907 to an illegitimate child. She took the secret of the father’s identity to the grave.
There is a link below on this page to her biography.
If you would like to take the first steps in getting to know your only family, have done some research but come up against a brick wall or would like to take your own research further please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by using the form at Contact Me on this site.
You may have wondered about the family who appear in the photograph in the header to this and some of the other pages on the site. They aren't my ancestors in the sense that I'm descended from them but in another and very real sense they are my family.
The middle aged couple brought up my mother from her babyhood, the elderly gentleman in the chair is the father of the man on the left, so in one sense my great grandfather. The girl was brought up as my mother's sister and always known by me as 'Auntie' The delightful house was the farm where my mother was brought up, and probably where she was born.

You may have wondered what your family was like, what the people in it, your ancestors did for a living. What were their names? Were they rich, poor or something in between? Where did they live? Did they get into trouble with the law?
I can help you find out about some of these things. Most people have acestors with stories to tell as interesting as those on these pages.
