For what reason did you start genealogy research?
Both parents have pasted away, and did not known anything about my families past. I didn't even know my grandparents names!. Plus when I moved to Scotland in 06..I was stuck with Inflammatory Arthritis. So I have plenty of time to be on my pc!.
Thank you, yes I know that the marriage certificate would help me in many respects, but as you said, genealogy is not a cheap hobby. Ok, £9.00 isn't really too much money, but if one are buying several certificates it will be costly...
I'm also on Ancestry and I have found a lot of family members there that neither me or my husband knew about. I had monthly access for 3 months, but have now decided to "take a brake" from researching for some weeks, because I don't have time with family and friends visiting all summer.
Sorry to say i am not researching the Koenig name. l;ong story. My main interest is the Gunter name..and my partners maiden name Gourlay. Both came from norman knights. Sir Peter Gaunt d'Or and Sir Gerard de Gournai
Sir Gerard died while on Crusade in the Holy Lands..and Sir Peter fought against King William Rufus II. Son & heir of William the Conqueror.
Sir Peter ended up conquering southern Wales on behalf of King Rufus, and was given lands in the Brecons.
The family seat for 500+years was Tregunter..also known as Gunterstone.
