Here you can find answers to questions about how the board works. Use the links or search box below to find your way around.

How do I enter the Forums

Once you have become a registered member you can visit the forums and read existing entries or add your own in the appropriate area. To enter the forums look at the Site Navigation panel on the top left hand side of the screen and click on "FORUMS". Then click on the appropriate section for the name and area where your ancestors lived that you are researching.

How do I post in the Forums

You are requested to add the Forenames of your ancestors in the forum most suited to the individuals concerned. For example if your Lawson ancestors were born in England then click on the Lawson Forenames link in the England & Wales Lawson forum. However if they moved to Australia after a generation or so then include that generation in the Australian & New Zealand section. Enter as many entries as you have generations with the head of each generation as the subject of each entry. If you wish to post under the "Help Wanted" section of a forum then again select the appropriate section depending on which country your ancestor lived.
