I am looking for help on the Pemberton Surname, by the way i have a group on FB called The Genealogy Cottage that helps people find their ancestors and became a member of another FB Group called, one Brick at a time, or OBAT, that is helping people find their ancestors free of charge.

Hello folks. I've just joined the Group. I'm a member of the Wiltshire Group and lead a Genealogy Wise Group for descendants of the GURD family. There are instances of GURD noted back to the 13th century in Wiltshire. I'm looking forward to picking up useful tips, but in the meantime, for those of you with ancestors in the south of England I suggest you take a look at the Wiltshire Wills project. Wills held in the County Archives are listed on this site and can either be downloaded or hard copies can be ordered.
The website is continually updated, so if you have no luck now, try again later. Names cannot be searched phonetically, so you should try varied spellings of the name. You can also search each parish by name as this might turn up Wills of other families who intermarried with yours. I have found a great deal about the early Gurds by reading the Wills of other folk in the village. I hope some of you have luck there. Dot

All are well advised to make every effort to determine where an ancestor lived when the new record found was originally made. Then, as you search continues, make careful notes of everyplace else he/she lived. Genealogy is about "WHERE", because, just as you have, the greatest percentage of records anyone made any time was at the place of residence, especially the counties. If you are not searching that location in depth, you are not doing good research.

So many of us understand about layoffs and RIFs. It isn't easy, even if it isn't your fault. We have a wonderful network here, thanks to you, so use it and we'll try to keep you solvent.

I didn't realize admins got paid. Good Luck with whatever you decide to do Debbie!

Did you hear about the "International Black Genealogy Summit"?

MyHeritage is going to be present and every attendee will receive a copy of the Family Tree Builder 4.0 free software.

This seems a very good opportunity to do research at the "Allen County Public Library" as they will have special extended hours to research, the list of speakers is very impressive and really looks like a well organized event. Kudos to all the people involved.

I found a nice little free utility, which allows you ten clipboards instead of one. Without belabouring the advantages, I'll simply mention that you can use them for different citations, searches, ancestors, etc. You can download it here. It is highly useful for researcher's purposes. Don't worry, the download immediately begins after you click the link. It is safe.
